Conflict of Heroes - Squad Level ActionConflict of Heroes is a board game, for 2-4 players, based on WWII Squad Level actions. It is a very fast paced game, which is easy to learn, with a concise programmed instructions rules book. Most scenarios play in under an hour and are designed to depict the pivotal points in a battle.
CoH is very unique in its play mechanics. There is no - You take a turn, then I take a turn. All players are constantly active, moving, attacking, counterattacking, digging, lighting buildings on fire, demolishing bridges, etc.
There are no combat charts to follow. Everything is on the counters and the game can be taught in 5-10 minutes.
A lot of effort has gone into distinguishing each unit, highlighting its strengths and weaknesses. For example, tank defense ratings include the relative armor thickness, armor slope deflection %, speed, size, targeting mechanics, and crew training. But ALL units use the same combat mechanisms, be they air, foot, water or mechanized.
The rules are taught sequentially. Read the first 5 pages, play a scenario, read 2 more, play another scenario, etc. The entire rules set can be read in an hour or less. (18 pages with LOTs of pictures).
