Advance Wars board game!

Written by pikaby

Fans of the great, simple and addictive Advance Wars series take notice.

Hey,. not many videogames could be remade into board games, but that's exactly what's happened here. Advance Wars in all its turn-based glory, with COs, units and maps pulled directly from the game itself. (and cloyingly named Skirmish Wars: Advance Tactics, probably to avoid copyright issues)

All you need to buy are ther plastic pieces, the boards can be fully customized because they're downloaded and printed out over the internet, which makes for a very flexible and cheap board game, and still it's fun as hell. Playable up to 4, just like the original.

  1. The aesthetics of the game are fantastic. The lower-level units
    definitely seem to be well-designed. Med-tanks are insanely tough in
    cities! That said, I didn't get to a good tank-on-tank sort of battle.
    Lots of fun for a light wargame.
