Tactical Combat Game with Toys
New adventures with your childhood toys !
Do you remember the games you played when you were a child, where you, as the general, directed massive battles ? As your brave toy soldiers followed your orders? Or when incredible dinosaurs roamed, hidden in the dense, mysterious jungle of your backyard ?
With Dino Soldiers, you can relive these adventures around a table in a tactical combat game, where only one player emerges victorious.
The Vietnam War. In the middle of the jungle, during a recon mission in a misty valley, a squad of soldiers of the Delta Sierra company comes face to face with dinosaurs from a bygone age.
A savage battle ensues on a terrain full of traps and hazards, where everyone must fight to survive.
One player leads a squad of soldiers and the other plays the dinosaurs. One group plays strategically while the other is more primitive in its tactics. The game ends when all soldiers or dinosaurs are eliminated.
How to Play
First, you choose or create your teams. Then, each player draws and places terrain tiles, face down, one after the other, trying to create a playing field to their advantage.
After that, the players discover the field while fighting each other. Movement, placement and distance determine if a unit can be killed. Soldiers can attack from afar, while dinos can only do so up close and personal. Special abilities give each unit a tactical value and allow for elaborate strategies.
