Tide of Iron

An epic board game of WWII tactical combat in the deserts of North Africa, on the beaches of Normandy, in the expanses of the Eastern Front, and beyond.

A friend reckons it’s ‘Squad Leader-light’, but this big box WWII squad level combat game from Fantasy Flight is a faster, simpler system with a good dose of strategy—and lots of plastic army men! This comprehensive rules summary and reference sheet has a customised side for the American, German or British player, and a special Combat reference sheet.

Recently, FFG passed this game licence on to 1A Games, who, after some mucking about on Kickstarter, released a Stalingrad expansion and re-released the original game. At the moment, sadly, Tide of Iron is out of print.
