We're just moving into the closed beta phase of testing for Combat60, a new web based wargaming system. We're after a couple of people to help test the system and the scenarios over the next month or so.

Combat60:

- uses Google Maps as the playing surface, so you can play anywhere in the world
- supports multiple rulesets, not just for each period but for different levels and styles of gaming
- allows you to create your own scenarios
- allows you to upload images of your own figures/models to represent the units
- needs no download or install as it runs in a browser
- plays on the iPad using the Safari browser
- support Player vs Player and Solo modes
- aims to release a tabletop miniatures version of each ruleset

The initial rulesets will be Napoleonic, WW2 Land and WW2 Naval.

You can get an idea of what the system is all about by viewing the videos at link

If you'd like to take part in the closed beta testing (guidelines at combat60.com/wp/?p=131) then please email me at david@combat60.com.

Thanks

David

Looks interesting, but essentially it's a board game no?

I'd be interested in beta testing it though to get a better idea of what's involved.

It's a board game in the sense of not having 3D models or terrain, but we're trying to create something that bridges miniature, computer and board gaming. In particular most of the rulesets we're using have a "miniatures" ethos rather than an SPI CRT style one, and having images of your own troops in the game helps to build the link as well.

Email me at david@combat60.com for an invite code, be great to know what you think of it.
