Though they’re certainly card games, the whip snake action of the Lightning War series is unlike any other card games you’ve ever played. Two players step into the roles of opposing commanders in history based recreations of famous 20th and 21st century battles and campaigns.

Individual cards represent various weapon types. Players throw reconnaissance cards to find and fix the enemy’s location. Other cards represent entire military formations. Everything can hinge on the timely throw of one critical card.

Each game contains 110 beautifully illustrated cards along with one double-sided page of rules. You’ll learn to play quickly, and you’ll be able to finish a game easily in 30 minutes or less. Be warned, though: one run-through will never be enough; you’ll want to play again and again. Best of all, each individual game in the series is priced under $25.00.
