Flames of War is a World War 2 wargaming system designed for two players controlling the Axis or Allied forces using standard 6-sided dice.

Forces are controlled on a unit basis, a section or company of infantry, a field gun with crew or a tank. Additonal players can join in, providing extra units, but preferably keeping the balance of forces even. The game is played on a table-top, with scenery terrain, cover, obstacles etc. set out before the forces join battle. Players take turns to manouver, making long-range artillery attacks and close combat infantry actions, taking an enemy-held location or falling back to a defensive position for the end of the turn.
The game is designed to be straightforward for beginners and the outcomes really can turn on the roll of the dice. For experienced players there are a range of scenarios from the early, mid and late war phases, offering the chance to re-enact some of the most important battles of the second world war.
Can you face up to the German Blitzkreig of 1939/40, defeat the Russians at Kursk, or hold the Americans at bay on the Rhine?
