Attack! is a new game system. The idea is to create a system that will
allow players of any skill level to buy the perfect game for them. The first
two parts of the system: Attack! and Attack! Expansion will be published
this July. Each box will sell for $24.99 - $29.99.
The basic game (Attack!) is a very simple game of expansion and conflict
set in the World War 2 era. It is aimed at those game players who enjoy
rules that are very simple and easy to get into. The game is not intended
to be a simulation of the era, but immerses the players in the flavor of the
Each player will start with a few regions (one of which is his capital), and a
few military units. He will expand his power base by adding regions to his
"sphere of influence". This may be done either through diplomacy (they
join willingly), or military conquest (they join, period).
There are three major sub-games in Attack!:
1) Land Combat: A simple system where each unit has certain advantages
based on its historical role.
2) Sea Combat: A simple system where each ship type (Battleship,
Carrier, Destroyer, and Sub) has certain advantages based on its historical
3) Economic: A simple system determines production. The player starts
with one card per region owned, and then gets a new one for each new
region added. The cards come in four basic flavors (suites): Resources,
Factories, Transport Network, and Oil. Each card has a value printed on it
that represents the base economic value of that region. If the player is
able to create an entire "set" (one of each suite), he doubles the printed
value on those cards. There is also a fifth type of card which has a
minimum value of "1" that represents a region without any special
economic value (just "population").
The units will include: Infantry, Tank, Artillery, and Air. These will be high
quality plastic minis.
The map will be earth circa 1935 centered around the Atlantic (North and
South America, Europe, and Africa). The expansion will contain the map of
Asia, Australia, and the Pacific. We also plan to make other maps available
soon after publication.
