“Company of Heroes”, the World War 2 board wargame, is based on the video game from Relic/Sega. It closely captures the choices, tactics and mission strategies of the videogame. In teams, or as individuals, players will manoeuvre units and battle for control points to collect manpower, munitions and fuel. Players spend these resources to construct new buildings, purchase units and upgrade abilities, eventually unlocking the powerful end-game units of their nation. To win, players will either attempt to collect enough victory points before their opponent does or totally annihilate the enemy’s base.
This board game ‘port’ captures the strategy, choices and fun of the beloved video games. Players manoeuvre units from one of four factions to secure resource points, grow their economy, unlock buildings and purchase and upgrade new units. Player’s eventually unleash their team’s powerful end game forces to secure enough victory points (victory point mode) or destroy the enemy’s base (annihilation mode).
From fog of war, utilizing cover and buildings, flanking armour, spotting, combining multi-unit tactics, veteran upgrades, deciding what units to purchase and what buildings to unlock; this project distils many elements we fans love about Company of Heroes into a streamlined board wargame experience.
This game involves squad level tactical movement but also focuses heavily on securing, collecting and spending resources to purchase new buildings, units and upgrades.
Unique Factions & Commanders
Each faction (US, British, Soviet & Wehrmacht) have distinct playstyles, advantages and weaknesses. Further specialize your faction by selecting and levelling up a doctrinal commander over the course of the game.
Each doctrinal commander will provide unique pay-per-use abilities as well as special doctrinal vehicles that can be called in like the US Priest motorized howitzer, the Wehrmacht Tiger tank, the British Staghound and the Soviet’s specialized infantry.
The game scale is 15mm – the same as the Flames of War wargame.
