August 2019: Tank Chess in Japan
During the Kickstarter campaign, Tank Chess was very popular among Japanese backers. A number of praiseful articles in Japanese sites contributed significantly to this.
Since we started selling TC through our site, a large portion of customers is Japanese, which made us explore the web in order to find any content in Japanese related to Tank Chess (タンクチェス). We were pleasantly surprised to find out how much people have written about this game.
A site very similar to BGG has a page dedicated to Tank Chess and Fun Set
Another positive review caught our eye
Some of the players have made efforts in presenting the rules in Japanese
There is also one recorded game
One fan made several homemade copies of the game and presented the whole process in detail on this blog

March 17th, 2019:
As a special add-on during the Tank Chess campaign, we offered a realistic pieces expansion. Initially, the pieces should have been printed using common 3D printers, but we later decided to produce them in a much better SLS technology (see the news from 22nd July 2018). Therefore, we had to adapt all models for the new production technology. The production of the entire series has been completed and what follows is the shipping.

After many challenges we've been handling on the run, we've finally, by request from many gamers around the world, started to sell some versions of Tank Chess and some complementary add-ons through our website.
December 2018: Reviews about Tank Chess
Tank Chess is a game which full qualities can be grasped only after playing a dozen games. It's even more pronounced if the players are equally experienced, since the games between the players who are approximately at the same level are the most interesting ones. We, as authors, are still often amazed by the depth you can encounter in some situations, even with the standard obstacle setup, not to mention when we test new setups and schemes.
The artwork of the game is not very ambitious on purpose because we wanted to emphasize the game mechanics. We're still waiting for the positive reviews from around the world but we're aware that it will be a slow process as the distribution of the games is going step by step on its own. For now, we've selected three articles:
"While this may not satisfy the diehard war scenario game player, it is in my mind just the right game to get a feel for tactics."
''Za razliku od svog indijskog pretka, ova igra je dinamičnija, zanimljivija i neuporedivo varijabilnija.'' (Unlike its Indian ancestor, this game is more dynamic, more interesting and offers incomparably more variety.)
"Tout en se reposant sur des règles simples et logiques, TANK CHESS vous promet un vaste domaine d’exploration théorique. GÉNIAL !"
(While based on simple and logical rules, TANK CHESS promises you a vast field of theoretical exploration. BRILLIANT!)
- Chatelain Philippe ( link )
We've also picked one of the comments that summarize the first impressions about Tank Chess.
"Few rules, great depth and balance, infinite longevity. For me it is already a classic."
- Massimo Aversa ( link )
November 30th, 2018: Mortar Hunt
The game Mortar Hunt we announced in August has been produced in two versions: in a hard box (16x24x4 cm) and as a Light edition.
November 15th, 2018: New releases of Water Polo and Mini Golf
The game Water Polo has received a makeover in form of a Light edition, while Mini Golf has two new editions: Light and Pocket. The prices of these versions are lower than the one in the standard box (24x24x4 cm).
November 9th, 2018: Starting to export Tank Chess
The retailers who ordered their copies of Tank Chess during the Kickstarter campaign and proceded with the full order were sent their packages. All the boxes have the printed logo of their company on them.
October 2018: FUN SET
Before the start of the Tank Chess Kickstarter campaign, we decided to offer as well an expansion that contains 14 new types of pieces and 4 new types of obstacles/mines. The Fun Set proved to be a hit because the vast majority of the backers (and all the retailers) ordered it along with the Main game, and, in addition, all the distributors we are currently negotiating with are interested in this expansion.
In order to be able to quickly produce all the ordered sets in high quality, we decided to make an injection molding tool for the Fun Set plastic pieces along the tool for the Main game pieces. The first tool was done in June this year, and the production of the Fun Set one is in the final stages.
Since we were waiting for the Fun Set tool to be done, we used the time to upgrade the Fun Set further. We introduced two new types of obstacles that will make games much better and even more diverse. That addition required a complete rework of the instruction manual and the Fun Set brochure, which, indeed, took a lot of time, but we are very pleased with the outcome.
Due to these changes, we had to delay the delivery of Fun Sets in the Pocket and Deluxe sizes, although most of the pieces were produced on our 3D printers during August and September. The shipping began in October, and the last copies will be delivered in early November.
25 September 2018: Tank Chess video reviews
Our game Tank Chess is slowly gaining popularity. Take a look at the following links:
13 September 2018: New workshop
Our family company works in several separate spaces. Our design studio and 3D printing workshop are located within our house (see news April-May 2018). In addition, we rent two more workshops. One is the main workshop that has a loft that we use as an office. Another one serves mostly as a warehouse, but there were also a punching machine and a packing machine. However, there wasn’t enough room for work, so we also rented a third workshop that is bigger than the first two. We moved the two machines to this new space so now the conditions for work are much better. This workshop also has an attic, which so far hasn’t been arranged but in the near future, we will probably move there our 3D printers. All three rented workshops are located in the same craft center and are about ten meters away from one another.
23 August 2018: Tank Chess - LIGHT EDITION
The game Tank Chess was offered in three basic versions during the Kickstarter campaign (plus the expansions and some special variants):
- For the basic version of the game, a plastic injection molding tool has already been made and the game has been produced in enough quantities for all backers, retailers and for future sales through the web store. The production of the cardboard elements is done by the renowned company INPRINT from Cacak, the company DMS Plast from Belgrade is in charge of the molding of the pieces, while the final assembly and packaging is done in our company;
- The Deluxe version, for the time being, isn’t planned in a serial production, so we’ve made enough copies for all Kickstarter backers and further sales through our site, but not for retailers;
- The Pocket version has created great interest and the production is currently in progress for all backers and retailers who ordered through Kickstarter. However, there is a bottleneck in production, which is the production of pieces on 3D printers, so we are never going to be able to offer this version of the game in large series.
Instead, we decided to create another version of the game that will be based on the molded pieces we already have the tool for – the Light version. We‘ve already made a series of 800 sets. Unlike the Pocket version, the box contains both boards (16x16 and 20x20). The box is slightly smaller than the Main game box (20x24x3 cm instead of 24x24x4 cm), and it is made (as well as the boards) of thinner cardboard. Although it contains almost all the elements the Main game contains, the price of this version will be more than three times lower. We believe this edition will be extremely popular in the coming period.
8 August 2018: Another new game - MORTAR HUNT
It could be stated that this game is just one special scenario for playing Tank Chess. Although the rules of movement and shooting are almost identical, it is still a separate game because it requires each player to have their own board (12x9 squares). The boards are separated by an obstacle, so the players cannot see the opponent’s pieces and their formation. The aim of the game is to locate and destroy the opponent’s Mortars (there are 3 on each side) by shooting over the obstacle in the middle. Each move has to be written down in a pad (you write down coordinates of the pieces that moved and the coordinates of the square targeted on the opponent's half). The game relies on a special psychological factor because the player is required to use their intuition to determine where the opponent could move their Mortars and which way they will run when under pressure.
Similar to the Tankball, we made several prototypes and soon we will produce the first larger batch of the Light version and a smaller batch of the standard, high-quality variant.
22 July 2018: Collaboration with Voxellab
During the Tank Chess Kickstarter campaign, we offered as an add-on a set of 38 realistic tank pieces in two sizes: standard and enlarged. The backers’ interest was exceptional so around 6000 pieces will be produced. The molding tool for the high-end production of such pieces would cost tens of thousands of dollars, with an uncertain end date and with, probably, not quite perfect castings. Therefore, we planned to produce these pieces on our 3D printers. Although we believe the backers would be satisfied with the pieces, we tried to find an even better solution for really top quality pieces. Voxellab company from Belgrade has much more advanced 3D printing technology than us – SLS (Selective Laser Sintering), so we formed a long-term cooperation agreement with them, on mutual satisfaction. This is especially important for our future war games projects where we plan to use a large number of realistic pieces that represent tanks, planes, helicopters, etc.
The pieces in the photos are white because the production process requires that the coloring is done at the end when all the pieces have been printed.
14 July 2018: New game - TANKBALL
The molding tool for plastic pieces for our game Tank Chess contains a total of 12 pieces, out of which one model is repeated three times, one twice, and the other ones only once. Most of these pieces are intended for the basic game, while others are part of the Fun Set expansion. Since it was impossible to make a tool that will contain all the pieces according to the exact quantity needed for the basic game, we started thinking how to use the surplus pieces and soon we came up with a new game: TANKBALL. It uses two types of figurines called Light and Heavy Tanks (in the game Tank Chess, they have the role of Recon Tank and Super-heavy Tank).
The development of this game went very smoothly since it uses some of the principles and mechanics used also in our games Football and Delfinarium, as well as in Tank Chess:
The game is very simple and dynamic, and it is intended for all ages. We’ve made several prototypes and soon the game will be released in two versions: standard (Main) and Light. The game doesn’t contain many elements (8 tank pieces, 1 ball piece, 3 dice, and a board) so both variants will have a fairly low price.
5 July 2018: Agreement with DHL
DHL, the world's largest courier delivery service has recognized the potential for collaborating with our company, so they offered us a long-term cooperation contract intended for important clients. Their services are indeed quite expensive, but they have adjusted their price list and offered the same price for all shipments up to 1500 grams, no matter the destination (the closest being Croatia and Hungary, and i.e. Australia as one of the furthest). We are satisfied with the terms so the contract has been signed and from now on we will also use DHL services for shipping. For shipments lighter than 1500 grams and for some nearby countries, we will continue to use Post Express services.
25 June 2018: The Tank Chess shipping starts
As promised to the backers during the campaign, the shipping of the basic version of Tank Chess has started in June. Soon we will start shipping other versions of the game.
We have invited all of the backers to take a photo while playing Tank Chess or with a Tank Chess box near a landmark in their current place of residence and to publish it on Facebook and Instagram. The best photos will be rewarded in October 2018, December 2018 and February 2019. More details at:
12 June 2018: The molding tool is done
To fulfill the needs of the serial production of the game Tank Chess, we have made a molding tool for the plastic pieces. The process of making this tool has several phases and is a very complicated task. We are very pleased with the looks and the quality of the molded pieces. This molding tool permits us to make large batches of the basic Tank Chess game very quickly. Currently, the molding tool for the Fun Set is being done.
May 2018: Banzai magazine
A Japanese printed Banzai Magazine dedicated their front page as well as 7 pages to our games. Following the introduction: "Get ready for some Serbian war games", they published a few articles about our war games that are currently being sold in Japan. We are especially proud of the interview where Predrag (founder of Forsage Games) explained how it all started and what was his inspiration for creating board games. That interview can be read here.
May 2018: New edition of the board game Water Polo
The new edition of Water polo has improved mechanics and some additional rules. As far as we know, our game is the only one in the world that represents a simulation of the Olympic sports of water polo.
April – May 2018: New design studio
The great success of our Kickstarter project allowed us to modernize our workshops and our design studio. In the future we will have far better working conditions and soon we will even be able to make large batches in our own workshop.
All of our games come wrapped according to international standards. In order to speed-up that process and to improve precision, we have acquired a semiautomatic machine SMIPACK SL55 that does sealing and shrinking of the film in one operation. That machine is now in our new storage department.
April 2018: New wrapping machine
March 2018: Exporting to Japan
Since recently, a few of our war games are available in Japan!
February 23rd – 25th: International Games Festival in Cannes
At the end of February we were in Cannes at the International Games Festival, which is one of the biggest game festivals in Europe as the board games are concerned. We put all the emphasis on Tank Chess, so we presented the basic version and the prototype of the 3D expansion that attracted a lot of attention. We played dozens of games with the visitors, mostly on the 16x16 sq. board so the public could familiarize themselves more quickly with the basic rules, and the game was received really well. We were once more assured that the basic rules are very easy to learn even for the kids under the age of 10, but at the same time the game provides enough depth to be very compelling to expert strategists, avid chess players, etc.
January 13th: 3D printers
As a part of the preparations for the serial productions, we’ve acquired two more 3D printers that will be put to work on the realistic tank models. For the regular, stylized pieces we decided to order some plastic molding tools that will speed-up the serial production, since the number of backers and the interest from retailers from all over the world greatly surpassed our estimates.
January 2018: Tank Chess in the media
Although our company hasn’t invested any money in advertising, many articles about Tank Chess were published during the campaign, which means that the editors and journalists have recognized the quality and the potential of the game. It’s needless to say that the reviews have been extremely positive and that it certainly helped the Kickstarter success!
January 4th 2018: End of campaign
Our Kickstarter campaign has just finished and we are speechless! After some intense and mostly sleepless 25 days, our project has managed to attract more than 2000 backers and raise a sum that is 50 times bigger than what we asked for. A big thanks to all of you who have made this project come to life!
A special thanks to all the people who actively participated in our campaign with their comments and suggestions as they’ve helped this game to be even better. We strived to answer all your questions and at the end we strongly feel we’ve built a good community around this project and we hope it will grow a lot in the time to come. Thank you all!
December 15th 2017: GAMES CON
Right after the start of the Kickstarter campaign, we were invited to present Tank Chess at Belgrade’s GAMES CON that took place from 15th to 17th December. We are very glad to have had the opportunity to meet the community this way and to answer all the questions regarding the project and the game itself. After that, we are convinced Tank Chess will have its place amongst the most popular games on Serbian market in the future.
December 13th 2017:
A respectable magazine which writes about historical themes, ARMCHAIR GENERAL (with columns: War College, Stuff We Like, History News, Tactics 101, Carlo D’este, Acg Magazine, Books, Electronic Games, and Boardgames), has published a very positive article about our game "Naval Battle in Archipelago" with title Torpedoes Away!
December 10th 2017: Start of the campaign
Our long-awaited campaign for the abstract strategy Tank Chess on Kickstarter has finally started! We hope to raise enough funds to be able to bring this awesome game to all the strategists, chess players, tank aficionados and board game lovers out there and we sincerely believe that this project has all it takes to become one of your favorites!
Alongside the two basic game versions, a standard one and a pocket one, you can expect a few expansions and also some pleasant surprises such as gifts for contributors and KS exclusive content. On top of that, you’ll have the opportunity to purchase some of our other games as add-ons at KS discount prices.
The campaign lasts until January 4th 2018. Make sure you follow it, so you don’t miss out on anything:
December 2nd 2017 – Appearance at the Krack fest 2017
On Saturday, December 2nd, we had the pleasure of presenting our new Tank Chess project at the Festival of board gaming and pop culture – Krack fest, that took place in the city of Kragujevac from 1st to 3rd of December.
At the panel on the board game development in Serbia, we were announced as the only creators of board games from Serbia that had a successful campaign on Kickstarter and delivered all the copies of the game to the backers. Our experience and observations presented during the panel were very valuable to the public, due to the fact that several groups of authors that were present are currently preparing their KS projects.
It’s worth mentioning that the reactions to our first KS game Naval Battle in Archipelago were extremely favorable and we were convinced once more that we, as Forsage Games, are on the right track.
November 2017: Preparing a new Kickstarter campaign:
TANK CHESS is coming!
In the 25 years of designing board games, Forsage games has created dozens of great concepts and entire games and some of them will be presented during our future Kickstarter campaigns.
As our followers on social networks probably know, last few months we have been announcing a Kickstarter project that involves a game called Jump Jet Maneuver. However, due to the fact that we want to surprise our fans right before the end of 2017, we are happy to reveal that our next KS project will be a game called Tank Chess!
The game Tank Chess had its first edition in 2016; since then, we have added many new game mechanics and features as well as some new pieces, making it a completely new and enriched experience.
The likely start of our Tank Chess campaign will be on December 10th. Stay tuned and follow us on social media for the updates!
October 2017: Setting up the new workshop
We are proud to say that we have the means to produce almost all of the elements for any board game by European or global standards in our two workshops. However, we continue to rely on the services of other companies for high quality digital printing (DigitalArt) and paper lamination (Alfa plast).
Our new workshop can fit up to five workers at a time. At the lower level we have, among other things, a newly acquired punching machine for boxes and small elements (markers, counters, hexes, etc.). The estimated production rate is around 400 copies of the game per month.
We are also planning to purchase some new machines and tools as well as to rent some more space that connects to our new workshop.
29th September 2017: A new workshop
In order to increase our production capacities, we have decided to rent another workshop. It’s not too spacious, but it has two levels, so it’s sufficient for our current needs, considering that our main computers, the 3D printer and a small production line will remain in our old workshop.
September 2017: Exporting to Bosnia and Herzegovina
We have exported a large number of our games made for the Serbian and the regional markets to Bosnia and Herzegovina. The games that are now available in Bosnia and Herzegovina through retail are: Dogfight, Naval Battle in Archipelago, Panzer Strike: France 1940, City Rally, Tiger in hunt, Pretty girl, Pony express and Aquateca 3+1.
May - August 2017: All Kickstarter orders delivered
The project "Naval Battle in Archipelago" was completed successfully and the games were delivered to all Kickstarter backers. The order of shipping (by countries and continents) was: Serbia and region - Asia - Australia - Canada - USA - EU.
There were many unknowns during the process of shipping, and also quite a few additional expenses, but we managed to overcome all of it and to learn a thing or two, so we’re certain everything will be easier and faster in the future.
April 2017: Die cutting machine
In order to make different size boxes, counters, markers, cards and similar paper and cardboard elements, we've acquired a rotary die cutting machine. It's on the smaller size and it's adequate for small to intermediate series.
5th February 2017: "Soft" editions
In progress is production of game Naval Battle in Archipelago for those who backed it during Kickstarter campaign and during pre-order period. All of the options are too expensive for gamers from Serbia. Therefore we have produced new version of the game which is much cheaper, but keeps the essence of the game. By complexity it is something between Pocket and Basic variants. Because of tools used for producing these "soft" games - always are done at least two games in series. The second game produced is Panzer Strike: France 1940. Both games have variant on English language.
