Save France from the Martian Tripods in DVG's Solitaire board game! Based on the classic novel of H. G. Wells!
The War of the Worlds is a solitaire board game that puts you in command of the Human forces in a desperate attempt to defend Earth against the invading Martian Tripods!
While you plan and carry out the Human side of the war, the game system commands the Martian forces.
The War of the Worlds is a low complexity board game for science fiction fans, and anyone who likes an easy to play game with good decision-making. Each games takes only an hour or so to play.
While France enjoyed quality soldiers and equipment, it suffered from a lack of quality leadership. In the game, French forces are less expensive, but also less skilled. This will make their battles larger than English battles, but they will also suffer more casualties. They have the standard 4 PP cost to build Harbors, but must pay 3 PP instead of 2 PP to move Units during the Production step. Again, reflecting the lack of effective leadership. The Martians receive 4 Tripods in each Wave.
What is the difference between each game?
DVG's design goal is to provide each game with its own feel while at the same time maintain almost all the core game rules across all the games. This makes it easy to go from one game to the next and quickly get up and playing.
You can even link them together so that you can play co-operatively with friends against the Martians
