The Game:
Through the shattered ruins of a quaint European village,to the scorched sands of North Africa, and on the deadly beaches of a mist-shrouded Pacific island, Valor & Victory puts you in command of the troops and machines that fought across the battlefields of World War II.

Valor & Victory is a fast-playing, easy-to-learn WWII Squad-level gaming system. V&V gets you into the action quickly, without requiring you to learn a lot of minutia and unnecessary detail. But don't let that fool you -- V&V is a complete WWII wargaming system, covering infantry and armored combat, artillery and airstrikes, snipers, close assaults, armored overruns, fortifications, and much more!

V&V may be easy to learn, but it's challenging and fun. So whether you're looking for an evening of serious wargaming action, or simply a quick battle at lunch, V&V delivers -- without draining you, your time!

I remember looking at that one a while back. It's print and play isn't it? I might have to freshen up my counter/map making skills and give this one a whirl.

Yup...Print & Play, and FREE! And actually, of the one's I've been checking out wistfully, this Christmas Eve Day, it is so far the coolest one IMHO. I am definitely going to print out a copy.

I've printed this game out at some point, just haven't played it yet- too many games!

I just printed it out myself. I like how it's on the low-complexity side. But what I really love is the chance to put my HexDraw mapping software to some actual use! I'd like to even explore doing some MWF-generated scenarios....like, a thread where I ask what scenarios you'd like to play and actually building it, with map and all!

I just got done DL'ing all the rules, components ect. for V&V and and i must say i like what ive seen so far.

You can tell he was heavily influenced by two games, The Squad Leader Series & The Lock Load Series. The units and game markers look like they fell right out of a Lock & Load gamette. The map boards, while probably done in paint, or a similar simple graphics program, look like Squad Leader Boards. Even right down to the road entering the maps in the center of each map section like the SL boards did. There are only 3 stock scenarios that are with the system as of this moment, but they are laid out just like the old SL series did them. Very familiar and user friendly.

Now if i only had a printer that worked.......

Note the original post has been changed.....the game is no longer free, so I hope you printed it off when you could! The Starter Set is reasonably priced at $25, but the rest will cost you a quite a bit now.

I have looked it over several times but just didn't think its something I could really get into. Honestly, each time I check any of the tactical WWII boardgames out there, new or old, I just end up going back to the gold standard, ASL. :mrgreen:

I hear you on that, my friend! I find myself bouncing from one to the other....LNL Band of Heroes, PanzerGrenadier, LNL White Star Rising, GMT Panzer, etc.....manly because not one of them has the 'full package' of what I'm looking for. I get restless and move from title to title hoping something magically changed :lol:

I've been suspecting its because I want something with the depth of ASL, but not a binder full of rules. Of everything out there, I'd say at this point, the new Panzer comes closest to ASL, but I've just gotten through the rules and can't back up that statement yet.

I'll start a new thread on that topic, in fact.
