New Rules Update!
Phantom is shaping-up to be a great Leader game. I’d say the best in the series so far. You’ll get far more strategy options in this game than ever before. Not only do you get to decide on Low Altitude or High Altitude strikes, close-range and long-range attacks, you also have new choices for your Special Options points. In past games, you could choose from different high-tech weapons. In Phantom, you still have the weapons to choose from, but there are campaign and mission altering choices, such as: Start of the campaign pilot promotions to give you a more experienced squadron, Tanker priority so you don’t have a Weight Point limitation on the mission, R&R priority to give your pilots a much needed break in the middle of the campaign, etc.
There are also little flavor bits. The BLU-1’s (napalm bombs) are a great example. Napalm is an effective weapon, but it also has a stigma attached to it. In the game, Napalm has some great attack numbers versus soft targets, but if you use it during a mission, you take a hit to your Political track, which will limit your future target choices.
If you’ve pre-ordered Phantom and would like your name to appear on the game boxes, copy/paste your name into the following statement:
“I give permission to print my name on the Phantom Leader game boxes.”
Wan has updated the box cover, and it looks amazing!
A few pre-orders have come in since last week, but not as many as we’d like. If you’re on the fence about Frontline or Phantom, this is the time to pre-order!
