Platoon Command Coming to LnLP
« on: March 20, 2016, 04:04:47 PM »
We are very proud to announce David Thompson card game design is coming to LnLP. Platoon Command you take the role of a platoon leader, guiding your platoon into combat in order to capture critical battlefield objectives. Platoon Command is a quick-playing game that uses cards for combat, command and control, fog of war, and attrition. The mission objective is to gain Objective Points by controlling areas of the battlefield. You accomplish this objective by issuing orders to your command group, three rifle squads, and specialized personnel.

Love it, Brant. Thanks for spreading the word back in late 2014. It's because of you that David reached out to me...and the rest is history.

I'm happy to answer any questions folks might have about the game.
