I’m very pleased introducing you the new Draco Ideas game: Frontier Wars.
It’s a World War II based game for 2 to 4 players with an easy mechanics and a quick learning without losing a high tactical complexity, all of it within the frame of fast, dynamic games. Manuel, the autor of the game has been working in the game design for 4 years, and finally his prototype was awarded as the best one at the Malaga’s Board Game Convention in 2017.
“Frontier Wars” allows you to take control of one of the four most relevant factions in World War 2. In the game, players chose a nation to manage: United States, United Kingdom, Germany or Russia in games.
Learn how to manage your resources, make bold tactical movements with your troops: infantry, tanks, artillery and airstrikes. Make alliances that meet your interests, but remember, your allies can stop being so at any time!
The game includes 100 fully detailed miniatures, a modular battle field for new and different games each play, as well as 90 cards that will make each game unique.
Here you have a few pictures from the final prototype:
The game shall be available on Kickstarter on January 15!!

Nations are not ‘factions’.

I dunno, the Poles may not be factions any more, but they were for a couple of hundred years. And the Welsh, well they’re factions innit.
And, on a good day, one could call the confederacy a faction, with the wind behind them.
Then we have the ECW, and the VBCW09/01/2019 at 14:29 #107207
Nations are not ‘factions’.
A faction can be defined as a group within a group.
So he could be meaning the faction of the UK as part of the Allies?09/01/2019 at 17:03 #107215
Nah, sorry – what Jemima said.09/01/2019 at 20:23 #107220
It’s just the prevalent term nowadays.
When I was growing up, we called them “armies” but then, in some games, you’re not commanding an army so I guess we were wrong all along.

Are the miniatures the same for each ‘faction’?

We have unlocked 9 stretch goals in only 4 days!!

Here you may find it: https://tabletopia.com/games/frontier-wars
We hope you enjoy it!28/01/2019 at 05:03 #108302
The couriers coming from High Command are carrying important news: by request of our backers (we love reading your suggestions, really!) we’ve prepared a new cosmetic add-on, which does not affect playability, but will make Frontier Wars’ map look much prettier.
This pack includes 24 buildings, in one color, since the factories and encampments can be operated by any player in control of the tile as long as they have at least one infantry unit there.
Regarding the Headquarters, also included with this pack, they will have a tab on the back to place your nation’s flag and identify the owner.
But we wanted to ask you something about this add-on:
What color do you think would be best for these building?
Help us decide with the following poll: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeINPux9DrV7xVI4W-z31VqXkhkSWeI20smGpIbxeQmlR3_Ag/viewform31/01/2019 at 19:01 #108471
As some backer as asking for it, we can finally confirm that Frontier Wars will have an EXCLUSIVE solitaire mode for our backers.
At this moment, the rules are in development, and it will include an A5 sized rulebook, and maybe some additional components.
Remember this solo mode shall be exclusive for Kickstarter backers.
We will keep you informed!

We’ve reached last hours and we’ve already overcome 20 unlocked milestones, some of them exclusively for our Kickstarter backers, and others that will add new material and variety to your Frontier Wars games.
There are no words to express just how grateful we are to all of our backers, for your support, but we think that actions speak louder than words, so we have decided to include a new random scenario generator! Aside from all the preset scenarios that the game already includes, you will have this easy option to create quick battles for any number of players.
Additionally, we have also included new goals to unlock during this final stretch of the campaign.
Thanks!14/02/2019 at 20:43 #109145
We are so close to unlock the 90K$ stretch goal with 12 trenches tokens… the last one!!
