AN ATTRITION OF SOULS: WWI Wargame
Light, fast-paced wargame at the strategic scale covering the Great War, designed with a high degree of replayability.
Each turn, you randomly draw tiles based on your industrial points and use them to the best of your ability. Game strategy is key due to the unforgiving combat system capturing the horrific attrition of this conflict; the dice offer no bloodless victories or reprieve for either side. Also offers great variability regarding the length of the war. Some games will end with decisive victories in 1915 and other will draw out into brutal stalemates that last until the end of 1918. No two games play alike. Added to this is a plethora of optional rules that bring additional historical depth to the game as well as balancing the game for players of different skill levels.
