Sergeants Miniatures Game (SMG) uses the Sergeants game system and adds miniatures rules. All soldiers come fully painted to table-top quality and each soldier has an assortment of Action cards that incorporate his skills, abilities, and personality. When choosing your squad for a mission, you will put together all of their respective Action Cards to create your “Action Deck.”
Movement and shooting are measured in either squares or inches. Soldier placement is also crucial for the field of fire by using his shooting arc to determine direction. The map board also contains essential information concerning the actual terrain depicted on the tile. Moving into or around terrain can be beneficial or treacherous. Always be mindful of your surroundings and continually put your men in the best position possible.
This game combines elements of boardgames and miniatures, in a system that is card-driven. Cards drive the impulses that take place during each turn, and each player has a deck of cards, made up from the troops under his or her command. Each soldier’s “deck” of cards reflects abilities and traits– perhaps about how well they shoot or how slowly they move or how attracted they are to things like fresh milk, hot food, or loot. There are some Soldiers (called “Characters”) included in the base game (Day of Days) which are common, but the others in DoD and all that are purchased separately have unique characteristics (which all balance out to be “equal” according to a complex math formula which is seamless to the players). So players can only get the best out of their forces after they have learned each soldier’s strengths and weaknesses. “Day of Days” includes moveable mapboard tiles, hand-painted 20mm miniatures (by FAA), scenarios, cards (several decks!) and everything needed to play. Additional Soldiers give more choices and more fun.
