“Great fun to play – and frustratingly hard to master!”
War games for all levels.
‘Contact Front!’ is a compendium of war games for all levels for beginner to experienced players with a ‘get you going’ set of rules for modern wargames. It’s designed to be a handy, ready reference – available via your e-book reader of choice – as you play your wargames.
‘Contact Front!’ encapsulates some of the lessons that Rhys Little learnt through his army officer training – and some of the lessons he learnt when he put that training into practice, including leading men in action in Afghanistan and, subsequently, in other places.
“Contact Front! contains a straightforward and engaging rule set to enable frantic table top action set across some of the world’s current hotspots. The carefully crafted rules manage to capture the nerve racking action of military conflict within the fun context of war-gaming. There’s nothing like weighing up your options before calling in the artillery!”
Bryn Richardson, War Games Retailer “Contact Front is a simple-to-play modern warfare game. It follows precisely the old adage that ‘no plan survives first contact with the enemy’. Although an easy game to learn, it takes a good idea of tactics and a degree of flexibility to master the elements of the game and achieve victory on a regular basis.
“Various armies are useable, each with their own unique merits and drawbacks, allowing the player to run various scenarios from the Cold War era to modern conflicts in Afghanistan.
“It’s highly enjoyable as a game, whether you’re playing a small-scale section attack or a larger-scale mechanised battle with artillery support.”
Tom Wright, War Games Retailer "’Contact Front!’ is great fun to play - and frustratingly hard to master. It requires a good degree of tactical thinking but it’s very enjoyable – even addictive - to play."
James Newman, table-top war gamer and live role play enactor “Involving, engaging and with a remarkably ‘real’ feel to it, Contact Front offers the casual war gamer a fun-filled few hours and some exciting exploits to discuss afterwards.
“For dedicated military strategists and tacticians, Contact Front offers the opportunity for them to pit their wits against others in the relative comfort of the armchair and table top - rather than being accompanied by the inconveniences and dangers of the real battlefield – and also provides the overall view of the battleground that not even computer programs can always manage to produce.
“This is certainly the best thought-out table-top war game I’ve played - and it’s probably one of the most enjoyable that I’ve played for many years.”
Christopher Reading, war-gamer and amateur military historian “Contact Front! contains a straightforward and engaging rule set to enable frantic table top action set across some of the world’s current hotspots. The carefully crafted rules manage to capture the nerve racking action of military conflict within the fun context of war-gaming. There’s nothing like weighing up your options before calling in the artillery!”
Bryn Richardson, War Games Retailer “Rules are sound, good and realistic, I really enjoyed it. A brilliant game.”
Jordan, British Soldier “The most fun I’ve had war gamming in ages!”
