The superb solo boardgame series Valiant Defense with titles like Pavlovs House and Castle Itter is moving away from historical for the next in the series.

Don't fret, as I'm pretty excited. We all must know Empire Strikes Back and the battle of Hoth..well here we go!!

Below is announcement made on Facebook

"I've been waiting for the last year or so to announce this. The next game in the Valiant Defense series will be a departure from the series' historical settings. Instead, we're taking Valiant Defense to Hoth, where you take command of the Rebel Alliance, defending Echo Base from the elite stormtrooper unit known as the 501st Legion.
Please let me know if you're interested in playtesting this."

We burned out on Assault on Hoth when we were in high-school. It was always a tense, last-minute affair. I hope this is based on that.

Are you sure it’s not an April fools joke?

Sob. I checked the date and it was April 2nd (*) so I really hoped. There is no reason, however, for not having a digital version of "Assault on Hoth".

(*) Yesterday we pulled a masterful April's Fool on my mother - that's the reason why I was "sure" that today news were credible
