Save USA East Coast 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 gamers, 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.
USA – East Coast
The US fielded a small military force at the time. This results in them having fewer Units at the start of the game. However, as seen a few decades earlier during the Civil War, the US is able to rapidly ramp up their production capabilities and quickly expand the size of their army. As the game unfolds, the US receives production bonuses to reflect this. The geographical area represented by the US map is larger than in the other games, as such, each Martian Wave is made up of 5 Tripods, and they tend to move a little less often. To match this, the US must pay 3 PP to move Units during the Production step. The US game gives a more lumbering feel with large forces bashing against each other.
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
Covid 19 update
Please note we are still up and running but due to unprecedented demand for this time of year it is taking us longer than usual to get parcels out. This combined with Royal Mail reporting delays in some areas due to staff being of sick / self isolating, means orders are taking longer than usual to arrive. thank you for your patience,
