Tank Duel: Enemy in the Crosshairs
« on: January 01, 2017, 07:21:30 AM »
This one has my interest too. Kind of an Up Front style armor game  :D

Tank Duel: Enemy in the Crosshairs is a fast paced tank-to-tank battle card game set during the battles in the Eastern Front of World War II. Two to eight players take on the role of a tank commander, using their hand of Battle Cards to move, target, fire, and conceal their tank, while attempting to score Victory Points by completing scenario objectives and destroying enemy tanks. A great tank commander will inspire his crew and pay careful attention to morale, while shrewdly maneuvering and attacking his enemy.

Was gonna say, "it resembles Patton's Best", but it's not solitaire is it?

I don't know if it's solo playable. Not really a lot about the game system yet. Video would be nice.

I might as well just ask my employer to start sending a part of my paycheck directly to GMT...
"Baseball's Sad Lexicon" - 1910

These are the saddest of possible words:
      “Tinker to Evers to Chance.”
Trio of bear cubs, and fleeter than birds,
      Tinker and Evers and Chance.
Ruthlessly pricking our gonfalon bubble,
      Making a Giant hit into a double—
Words that are heavy with nothing but trouble:
      “Tinker to Evers to Chance.”

"Tinker to Evers to Chance"
"where doubles go to die"

These three players helped the Cubs win four National League championships and two World Series from 1906 to 1910.

In summary the game has a highly abstracted movement and maneuver system but a highly detailed attack resolution system. What more would a WW2 tank lover want?

Solo in base game!  :notworthy:

From one of the designers Jason Carr

Hi Everyone,

At GMT Weekend in April, I officially announced and demoed the new Solitare System for Tank Duel: Enemy in the Crosshairs. I'm very excited to share that the Solitaire "Bot" will be included in the game (GMT is updating their website as we speak to reflect these new developments)!

I am the designer of the system, which is influenced by VPJ Arponen's Hitler's Reich bot as well as the COIN series bots. So far, it beats the designer Mike Bertucelli and I about 50% of the time, but that's with nearly no tuning. We're confident we can push that up to 60-70% or more.

So, ask me anything! I'm happy to tell you all about the Solitaire play.
