Back to News Listing Check Your 6! Dev Diary - Differences Between Tabletop and Digital

Posted: Wednesday, February 7, 2018 by Matrix Support

Type: News

Last week we announced Check Your 6!, the digital version of the tabletop game created by Scott Fisher.
Today, we're here to share a bit of the developing process with you. The first Dev Diary is out now on Check Your 6!'s forum, talking about the differences between the tabletop game and the digital version.
Here's a quick extract:

"The upside of having a digital version was for us being able to avoid difficult calculations and having them being calculated and explained in a clear and understandable way, like this the payer can understand and check better the behind the scene impressive parameters and game rules.
Going digital also allowed us creating a fun single-player experience and offering the players to have the multi-player game cross-platform on all kind of digital devices.
Of course, to achieve this we had to make some crucial design choices, changes and adaptations.
Our goal was to make a fun digital game and at the same time trying to do justice to the original by keeping it as close as possible to the original complex and intriguing CY6! board game.
So that is why we tried to keep the differences to a minimum really."

TOAW IV Scenario Highlight: Operation Neva - Leningrad 1944

Thursday, February 14, 2019

On January 14th, 1944, Leningrad Front and Volkhov Front launched a combined offensive against the German 18th Army still standing at the outskirts of Leningrad. The plan was to break through to Luga from north and East and encircle the army, before continuing the attack to the Panther Line still under construction and break into the Baltic.

The Germans had in the previous months severely weakened the army by transferring many divisions south and was planning a withdrawal to shorten the front line. The offensive started before they could implement this plan 'Blau'.
