V-Commandos is a WW2 commandos co-operative board game. Players can either select a pre-generated mission or create their own by combining objective cards, then they assemble a team from famous Allied corps: U.S. Raiders, British SAS., Devil’s Brigade, SOE, etc. During play, you hide in darkness, wear enemy uniforms, and sneak up on your targets. Get spotted? Open fire with emblematic allied weapons and try to turn the enemy's weapons against them! If you can, get back to cover and turn off the alarms as the enemy has more available troops than you. Thus, you need to focus on completing the mission, then leaving the area as quickly as you can... (see more at: http://boardgamegeek.com/)
Review by Dave Banks (Geekdad).-
I really enjoyed playing this game and V-Commandos really creates all of the suspense and high intensity you’d expect from a game where you are venturing deep into enemy territory with no one to help you but your team. In one game, we felt a real sense of peril as a German guard wandered onto our tile, where we thought we were hidden. Luckily our rolls kept us in the shadows and we passed on unnoticed.
While I haven’t seen the finished components, I love the art that is being used on the tokens, terrain tiles, and cards. It’s a great combination of comic illustration and realism. Not only that, the game will include about 40 tiles, over 200 tokens, more than 30 event cards, and 25 objectives. And that doesn’t even include the expansions. That’s a lot of stuff, given how little is in some of the other game boxes I’ve opened lately. I think the game will have an awful lot of replayability because objective cards can be interchanged in a staggering large number of ways and each character has a second side for a variation in character ability.
There are a lot of war-themed games out there, many that are quite similar, not a lot that set themselves apart. But with a unique and fun stealth game mechanic, loads of enemies, challenging objectives, and seemingly endless replayability, V-Commandos is a game worth supporting...
