Pocket Battles: Celts Vs Romans
From the Publisher...
The start in a series of pocket warfare, Pocket Battles takes you first to ancient times as Romans face the Celts. The size of the armies is agreed upon and formed according to the point values of the troops. Combat takes place in three zones and each zone has two areas (front and rear), while the engagement zone is in the middle. Each troop tile forms a unit and can fire ranged weapons and/or engage in melee. Some troops have special abilities which are described on the player aids.
It is a wargame that easy to learn, inexpensive, fast, portable and requires minimum table space!
Future series will feature armies from different eras and even different genres.
Contents: 60 tiles, 6 dice, 20 wound/order tokens, 2 player aids

|This is a deceptively small game that provides a surprisingly deep playing experience. The game is simple, but the great experience comes from all the (very meaningful) choices you make before the actual battle begins - which troops to use, where to deploy etc. The most surprising to me, was that this game actually feels strategic rather then tactical - something very few games achieve.
