GENERAL ORDERS: WWII
Designed by David Thompson & Trevor Benjamin
Illustrated by Alex Green
"We’re extremely excited about General Orders. It’s a game where we really wanted to do something completely new — to leverage the ideas and concepts in worker placement games to drive the action in a war-themed game. The end result is something we’re very proud of, a tight, tense, quick-playing hybrid game that fuses different genres into something fresh and exciting."
- David Thompson & Trevor Benjamin
Take command of Axis and Allied troops at the height of World War II in the first ever
worker-placement wargame, brought to you by the designers of the Undaunted series.
General Orders: WWII pits competing commanders against each other in a tug of war for control over a crucial Second World War battlefield, either in the mountains of Italy or the islands of the Pacific. Players strive to seize crucial strategic assets that unlock special abilities, and prevent their opponents doing the same. Balance the desire to gain these advantages with the need to secure supply lines, ward off aerial assault and artillery barrages, and protect your vulnerable headquarters, in this compact and elegant two-player game.
From critically acclaimed design duo David Thompson and Trevor Benjamin, General Orders: WWII combines the dynamic tactical gameplay of a traditional wargame with the cut-throat
decision making of worker-placement games.
Playing Time: 30 minutes
Contents: 1 game board; 30 playing cards; 80+ wooden pieces; dice and tokens
General Orders: WWII will be available later this year.
See it on tables for the first time at Gen Con 2023 in August.
