We've started playing the Force on Force rules with increasingly regularity at our club. Written by the guys at Ambush Alley, this system has been available for over five years, so we are what might be called "late-adopters." But there's a lot to like about Force on Force, so here's a quick recap of one recent game we played, along with some commentary and observations of the rules.
It must be said that Force of Force does an excellent job providing the building blocks for infinite scenario design, so this game was ripped from the headlines in northeastern Syria, summer 2015.
VERDICT: Just about everyone at our club has enjoyed playing Force on Force. Supported by Osprey, the rulebook is shiny and glossy with outstanding production value. The authors stress their dedication to simplicity, as evidenced by a streamlined "4+ is always a hit" mechanic. Despite a few very minor quibbles, I'd consider this is one of the best modern platoon-level systems I've played. Highly recommended.
