Tabletop Frontlines:  The Battle of France 1940

In this new tabletop battle, the command of the Allied or German armed forces is placed within your hands. It is not a command without major decisions. The Ardennes Forest is unguarded but dense and slow-moving. The Maginot Line is well guarded but lacking strategic positioning. Brussels seems to be on the brink of collapse. These factors plus the fog of war will test the strategic mind of each player.

  • Fantastic game

    Posted by Sean on 06/03/2016

    I bought this game 3 weeks ago. We love it. Some of the rules needed clarification. We got that quickly from the developers. Main thing is captured cities are considered occupied. Düsseldorf is not attackable by the sea zone but can produce German naval units. Setup is quick and each game is different with the cards. We have been pleased with the purchase. If you own any Axis and Allies set you don't have to buy pieces. This game is great if you want a quick challenge or just want to play over and over again. We played 10 in a row when we got it.
