WWI Card Driven Wargame Iron Storm is Up for Preorder

Iron Storm (GMT Games)The World War One card driven wargame Iron Storm is up on the P500 preorder list for GMT Games. Promising the ability to simulate the entire conflict in three to five hours, the game will include four scenarios including the entire Great War. Iron Storm is for one or two players, ages 14, plays in three to five hours, and can be preordered right now for $55.00 with an eventual MSRP of $79.00.

About the game:

Iron Storm is a two-player strategic wargame that allows you to recreate the entire First World War in a single afternoon (3-5 hours). The game uses an innovative card engine system where each player uses their entire hand in one go to activate armies, resolve operations, and support battles with combat cards. It also simulates human and economic attrition during the course of the war by gradually adding cards to each deck that will have limited use in the hand and take additional effort to remove. Iron Storm has been designed to be as simple as possible in terms of rules and has no exceptions to remember that are not indicated on the cards or board. It is equally suitable as an introductory wargame or as a tight duel for experienced players.

Highlights:

  • An innovative card-play system that keeps the game moving quickly while simulating war weariness and exhaustion through the addition of Attrition cards to both players’ decks
  • A quick and exciting battle system using custom dice to determine the impact of artillery, with outcomes slightly unpredictable but still deterministic enough to plan your turn around
  • Random events depicting external political, industrial, and military factors that both players must adapt their strategy in response to
  • Four scenarios allowing for variable game length, with even the full arc of the Great War in Europe being playable in an afternoon
