Back to News Listing World in Flames Preview Pictures!

Posted: Friday, October 25, 2013 by Filippo Chianetta

Type: Press Release

 

Start with three massive Hard-bound Books, two to teach you how to play and one as a definitive reference for the rules as coded, incorporating clarifications and errata from years of working together with Harry Rowland of ADG on this release.

Next, a global map in 24 sections which is entirely tabletop-playable and accurately depicts the world at a consistent scale of 90 kilometers per hex  (70,200 hexes) showing all major rivers, coastlines, island chains, and mountain ranges with a printed version that is 21 feet long and 9 feet tall.  

Finally, the computer DVD to allow you to play World in Flames on the computer as well as the tabletop, including across the internet against another player.

If you were wondering what to expect from this unique release of Australian Design Group’s (www.a-d-g.com.au) legendary board game, World in Flames, this announcement and our recent “Seven Moments of Wow” should satisfy your curiosity.  This is not a typical computer wargame release.  Apart from bringing the most detailed and realistic global wargame of World War II to the computer, this release is also for World in Flames tabletop players.  The hardbound Rules as Coded give you the best single volume reference to date for the World in Flames rules, in a durable volume.  The global map at the perfect scale to be used with the tabletop game offers the first global World in Flames map, which can be used in sections or if you have room, assembled to span the entire globe! 

This is the single biggest physical release in the history of Matrix Games and the Slitherine Group and also the most impressive head to head global wargame of World War II ever created.  We are all very excited to bring you this unique and exceptional package, which we are certain will be an awesome addition for every World in Flames fan.

 

If you cannot wait for the release date and you happen by chance to be in Germany today, come visit us at our booth at SPIEL 2013 in  Essen. We are going to host the World Premier of the digital version of World in Flames at the show. Only 50 exclusive copies of an Early Access version will be available for a few lucky wargamers. You could be the first on the planet to put your hands on this long-awaited game! Also Harry Rowland the designer of the game will be at the booth this afternoon to sign copies of the Game. Come on down wargamers, you cannot miss this chance!

To locate our booth, please check out the map here, the location is Hall 1, booth D-106.

But how does the game look like? For those who will not be able to visit us in Essen we are posting on this Forum Page, a collection of pictures featuring the Books and the Maps, plus a 3D rendering of the complete World Map.

Get more information on World in Flames from its official product page.
