Night of Man: Alone Against the Aliens Now Available As PDF

Jan 27, 2018

Night of Man is a card-driven, tactical board game from Flying Pig Games.

Set in a post-alien-invasion-of-Earth universe, the squads, heroes, and tanks of Earth’s Militia battle against powerful aliens with enhanced power armor, hover tanks, Walkers, and spider-like robots.

In each turn gamers draw up to a four card hand and may play a card, sometimes more, in each impulse. The cards activate units to move, fire, assault, and use special powers, such as explosive rounds, telekinesis, and more. Special cards, such as critical hit or bullet storm, can also enhance a unit’s attacks.

Each turn continues until three end turn cards have been drawn. Players then choose one card from their hand to keep, the administrative markers are removed from the board, and a new hand is dealt to each player. The players use that new hand, or the card kept from the previous turn, to bid for initiative in the new turn.

Night of Man ships with numerous scenarios, as well as a point system that allows gamers to put together their own battles in no time flat.

Old School Tactical strategy game up on Kickstarter

February 26th, 2015

Flying Pig Games is running a Kickstarter campaign for Old School Tactical, their new, old school, military strategy game.

OST is the first in a dynamic series of fresh, tactical wargames. OST simulates, through an easily-learned game system, small unit engagements on the Eastern Front during 1941-42.

Two players contest each scenario using counters representing the soldiers, guns, and vehicles that fought these desperate battles. On each turn play goes back and forth between the sides as Impulse Points are spent to enable a player’s forces to act. When the battle is over, casualty and victory points are tallied and a victor is declared.
