Product Description

Task Forces at War is a 64-card, diceless, two-player introductory card game designed to be both easy to learn and quick to play. Task Forces at War is an excellent game for a parent to use to introduce children to the fascinating hobby of war games or to use to expose a non-gamer friend to the joys of historical gaming.

The game is based on World War Two (1939 – 1945) naval combat, when fleets combined battleship firepower with bombing strikes from aircraft carriers. It looks great; with full-color pictures of American, British, French, German, Italian and Japanese capital ships of the Second World War. The game allows players to deploy "task forces" of warships from their hands. Comparisons of the ships deployed in the opposing task forces determine if the task forces will engage in a carrier battle, a surface battle or an air-surface battle. One player commands the Axis fleet, one player commands the Allied fleet and the side that scores the most victory points by sinking enemy vessels wins a hand. Win two hands and you win the game!

Every playing is different and playing time for a complete game is thirty minutes to one hour. Components include an Allied Ship Deck, an Axis Ship Deck, and the rules.
