COMBAT! Solitaire Wargame

COMBAT! Solitaire Wargame
by Mortell, Ross


Solitaire game on man to man combat in the 20th century. At the start of each turn, the player will play 1 card from their hand to the Initiative track to determine the initiative values for each of the player's friendly teams and may have other effects depending on the card.

After this, the player assigns orders to each character on his side to determine the actions that the character can take this turn. Once the friendly characters have orders assigned to them, the player will draw an Enemy AI Card for each Alerted Enemy Character. These cards will determine the Initiative value for each Enemy Team and the Order that they will receive. The Order determines the actions that an Enemy Character will take that turn.

The game turn is then played through in 4 Impulses. From the lowest initiative value to the highest each Character (Friendly and Enemy) will perform the action specified on their Order counter. All Characters will act on Impulse 1 before moving to Impulse 2, then Impulse 3 and finally Impulse 4. At the end of the turn all Orders are removed and the played cards returned to the respective decks. Each soldier (friendly and enemy) is represented by a 1-inch counter with 5/8-inch informational markers showing morale, wounds, orders etc.
