Frontier Wars
« on: December 30, 2018, 04:43:41 AM »
Greetings friends,

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!!

You can follow it at this facebook's event: https://www.facebook.com/events/1061140510724271/

Best regards and happy new year!!

Frontier Wars is now live on Kickstarter, with 100 miniatures: lead your army, battle and conquer lands, build facilities to recruit new troops and manage your cards (resources) to achieve victory through investigation in this classic computer RTS style board game.



And if you join us during the first 48 hours, we will give you the Trucks add-on for free, including 2 truck miniatures for each faction (for all 6 factions, including the expansion).

Greetings friends,

The offensive started 4 days ago, and we are very pleased with everything achieved. The campaign has just began and we have already unlocked all this new content:
- We will increase the size of the army boards, upgrade the card quality and the size and thickness of the tiles.

- Cooperative mode: 2vs2 & 3vs3 with the expansion.

- 5 New scenarios, inspired in battles from World War II.

- 3 New tiles: one special tile for the cooperative mode, and the Port and Fleet tiles.

- 6 Weather cards with their own new game mechanic. Kickstarter exclusive!

- 5 new resource cards.



Additionally, if you didn’t get the pack of 12 trucks, with their own special rules to turn them into mechanized units as early bird, you can get them now for only 9€.

We have just started the campaign and we have many surprises as stretch goals, and we are even studying some add-ons to include, listening to your suggestions.

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

Thank you for your support!!

Greetings friends,

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/viewform

Greetings friends,

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!

Best regards,

Greetings friends,

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!
