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
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.
