Tank Chess - Deluxe, with Fun Set

Tank Chess - Deluxe, with Fun Set

SKU: G0012

Abstract, diceless, tank battle game for true thinkers and strategists. Fisher VS Patton, Zhukov VS Kasparov.

 

Tank Chess is a strategic game played on 16x16 or 20x20 square board which as a main objective has the destruction of the opponent’s Command Tank or a sneaky escape of your own Command Tank. The way to achieve this is by meticulously planning and executing the maneuvers of the rest of your forces composed of Light, Medium and Heavy Tanks, Tank Destroyers and Heavy Mortars.

 

The game incorporates some masterful strategic planning and decision making similar to the game of chess, but the nature of the long range engagements along with the firepower and the armour protection are the factors that have to be acknowledged in order to create a winning strategy and to achieve the ultimate goal.

 

One of the most important game features is the existence of the obstacles on the board that prevent shooting across the board and provide opportunities for some clever tactical maneuvers. Also, the destroyed vehicles remain on the board at all times, which makes you consider every move very carefully, in order to avoid creating new cover that your enemy can exploit.

 

Fun Set: Many different types of tanks and new types of obstacles give a new dimension to Tank Chess. All the basic rules and strategies from the core game remain the same, but with the expansion, there are a lot of new details and possibilities to think about. The expansion is followed by a brochure with many different terrain configurations, and on top of that, players can create and publish their own terrain schemes and thus contribute to the overall quality and popularity of the game. Long-term, fun is guaranteed.

 

Deluxe version has larger boards, pieces and obstacles.

Pieces are 3D-printed with 100% infill. Scale (example): Heavy Tank piece is ~30mm (~1,2 in) long. Obstacles are made of thick black plastic.
