Hi friends!

The battle continues and new stretch goals have been unlocked!.

Now we have Counterattack, barricades, sand dunes, desert buildings and ruins cards available for the British and Italian forces and a textile U.S. bag.

Not just support and terrain cards have been unlocked. Furthermore, just for backers, 3 new Panzer II and M3 Lee cards were unlocked as well. 

Meanwhile we continue working in new cards artwork.





Come on!! We can't win the war in the first week. The way to the victory is long and there are some surprises close to you... are you ready for them?

We will see you on the battlefield!

I love the artwork on those cards.  It's not trying to be photo-realistic, but it still does a good job of evoking the feel of the conflict.

Greetings,
 
Today we bring hot news about 2GM. As many of you requested, we have included 5 new t-shirts as add-ons to the campaign--one per nationality.
 
Which one do you like the most?  The classic US one with an M4 Sherman? Or do you prefer the threatening Panther?
 


4 sizes are available: M, L, XL and XXL. We hope you like them.
 
On the other hand, we reached 300 fans at BGG (BoardGameGeek.com). Thanks for making that happen! Now our supporters will enjoy the enormous "Maus" tank and a special scenario.
 
Thank you for your support.
 
We will see you on the battlefield!

Well, the Semovente was probably the most effective self-propelled ATG the Italians had while active combatants in WW2, and it's gun doesn't look any punier than the 2lb-er on the Matilda.

However, neither looks very butch compared to the other three.

Greetings friends,

Our next step in the battlefield requires the use of a paratrooper support card... 2GM lands in Gen Con 2016.



You can see and try our games at the Discover International Games event that takes place on Saturday the 6th, from 8.00 PM to 12.00PM.

There shall be one table available for ONUS, where you can see and play with the base game ONUS! Rome Vs Carthage, and the 2 expansion packs -- Terrain & Fortreses and Greeks & Persians.

Furthermore you can have a look at the ONUS! campaign book and the ONUS playmat, both of which have received good responses from backers.

On the other table, you can see 2GM Tactics (1st Spanish Edition). It will be hard to play if you don't speak Spanish, but you'll have an exact idea of the quality we are offering on our kickstarter.

So we hope see you on the battlefield, and GenCon too!

Greetings friends,

We continue the campaign… A new stretch goal has been unlocked, and now the British forces have the Crusader Light Tank and the Italian forces get both the  M11/39 Medium Tank and Paratroopers cards.

If your are going to GenCon, you can see the Spanish version of 2GM and get a feel for the quality right in your hands. For those who can't see the game in person, we have posted a game unboxing video in English, recorded by Kevin Duke. Thank you Kevin! We hope you like it.
 

 
Many people have been asking for solo rules and, we have posted a first approach of the Solo Rules in English. While we expect to do some English editing and polishing, you can download them here in order to have a look:

Spread the word to your gamer friends and help us reach more Stretch Goals. We will see you on the battlefield!

Greetings friends,

So far, we have reached 12 goals. That means there are 86 new cards unlocked, 38 of them EXCLUSIVE!

Plenty of extra scenarios too, include 3 Campaigns, which in games to games in a series of battles. Those getting the UK and Italian expansion will enjoy the first part of the North Africa Campaign (pre Rommel!). We are also including the early days of Operation Barbarossa for the Eastern Front expansions, and the Normandy Campaign will take the UK forces from 'Sword' beach to Caen. That makes a total of 11 more history based scenarios. (Plus the Special scenario that uses the "Maus" giant tank-- another Exclusive card!)



The Base game is getting a plastic inlay and cloth bags (exclusive!) for the German and US sides.

There are still plenty of goals to unlock and we have several surprises. Let´s go for them!

We still have time to really grab a lot more stretch goals, but ask for a group effort to do it.

Soon we are going to share French rules translation, made by a game fan, so we continue working and growing.



We see you on the battlefield!

Greetings friends,

We have reached the last stage of our campaign with a lot of new game components added.

Thank you for your support. With your help, we have unlocked 17 stretch goals and we continue upgrading our armies with new units and support cards. So far we have increased the available games by 106 new cards, with 45 are exclusive for backers.

Furthermore 13 new scenarios, part of 3 historical campaigns have been added to the campaign book. And, we are going to add weather effect tables, and cloth bags, coasters...

But we still are engaged in the struggle. We can unlock 26 more new cards, and 9 new scenarios, and more counters... and we have some more stretch goals in mind, if the numbers keep going up. How far can we reach? It is up to you, but we know we need new recruits to hit big numbers.

In other news, a new 150x75cm playmat has been included as add-on. This new playmat is specially designed for a 4 player game and it will allow you to play with 2 'Headquarters' in each side instead of 1. The mat also comes with 48 special terrain cards.



Grab a friend, post a message somewhere, and join us on the battlefield!

Hi jmkinki

Please get this game to distribute in the UK. I simply can't take part in buying from the US...postage costs are a killer. So spare a thought for the poor wee gaming Brits and get a UK distributer

Thanks
