Description Edit | History

Engage you are the commander of all ground forces (Infantry and Armor units) on one of the many battle fields of WWII; North Africa, Italy, France, Germany, Russia or one of the many islands in the Pacific. With its simple gaming mechanic to move and fire your military units everyone can play. It has a unique combat system that puts you in complete control of your game and just enough complexity for the hard-core war gamer. Each player will secretly acquire and deploy their military units and manage their skill level. Players’ will move and fire their military units, simulating simultaneous engagement. Victory is achieved by capturing and holding the fortified bunkers in the middle of the open battlefield. You will need to outwit your opponent and stop their advancement. All command decisions are made by ‘you’ in determining your outcome; luck is not a factor! There is no luck of the dice or the need to draw the correct cards to achieve victory. If you lose, then it was your decisions and your strategy that failed! No game will ever play the same as your decisions will alter the direction of each game.

Engage has a large playing board 35"x21" and includes 96 detailed British & Italian military units (64 infantry units and 32 armor units)

Engage is designed for 2 players and can expand to 3 or 4 players (team play).

Engage has 4 expansion modules to expand your play options. American units, German units, Japanese units & Russian units for a total of 192 additions pieces.

More Information Edit | History

They call themselves War Gamers

Some War Gamers like the decisions to be made by rolling dice and others by drawing cards.
Engage requires you to plan and make battlefield decisions. Decisions like when to abandon units and what attacks deserve the resources to obtain victory. Commanders will use diversionary attacks to draw the enemy away from the real objective. Because the objective is what you are ordered to obtain.

"Take calculated risks. That is quite different from being rash."
George S. Patton

Engage is designed so you don’t know what your enemy has until you run into them on the battlefield. You will both have the same objective.

"Accept the challenges so that you can feel the exhilaration of victory."
George S. Patton

I'm sure General Patton would love to play Engage over those other so called war games that let the dice or cards make the decisions.

You would never hear a real commander standing over a table saying oooooh I rolled a 6, I win.

"If we are not VICTORIOUS, let no man come back alive!"
Take on the challenge of Engage and find out if you are a real commander.
