Product Description

From Rick Young, designer of Europe Engulfed, comes a series of fun, tense block games. The Fast Action Battle (FAB) games place you and your opponent in the roles of field commanders for memorable 20th Century battles. FAB games focus on speed and playability with low-unit density while keeping the history both accurate and exciting.

Volume 1: The Bulge brings you the Battle of the Bulge from December 16th through December 27th. You command the division and brigade level units using the historical orders of battle. Like Bradley and Montgomery or Model, you order your forces to key points, and decide how and when to order extra Assets to bolster them. There are never enough of these Assets to give to all the units begging for them, so you need to weigh your decisions carefully. FAB games also make use of Special Actions, which allow the players' opportunities to the turn the tables on one another throughout the game.

FAB delivers an exciting new blend of units and decisions to the block game genre: your forces are a mixture of wooden blocks and die-cut counters. This blend allows players to face tough command decision choices in a fresh new way.

Volume 1: The Bulge contains the following scenarios:

  • River Dance: the campaign game covering all 12 days, which plays in 4-5 hours once players have mastered the game's systems, and gives both sides the chance to attack and defend
  • To the Meuse: a three hour Tournament Scenario covering the 16th through the 21st of December
