Gale Force Nine: "TANKS"
Posted: Sat Sep 23, 2017 9:00 am
I was given a copy of "TANKS" while working at Origins for Gale Force Nine (GF9).. on down time, I was looking through the merchandise , and the game caught my eye, I had asked a few questions about it... the folks at GF9 noted my interest, and just gave me a copy.
The game comes with a Panther tank and two Shermans; the tanks are model kits with many options. The kits are good quality. There are game/info cards for the enclosed tanks as well as quite a few of the most popular WWII tanks. The set also includes dice, markers, two dimensional terrain and upgrade and crew cards.
The set is a relative bargain at around $25.00 (US) with three tanks in the set. Individual tank models are priced at ten bucks each, these include the tank card and usually crew and upgrade cards; these are respectable models in their own right, so resonable.
I already have a substantial collection of tanks from "Flames of War", so I bought and additional set to get the cards and extra models; I have no other American tanks in my collection, and I'm building the Panthers as Jagdpanthers. MY FLGS discounts the sets at slighty over twenty bucks.
I haven't actually got it to the table yet, I want to get a third set.
