"Columbia Games has published great games for more than 40 years, including four Kickstarter projects: Napoleon, Bobby Lee, Victory in Europe, and The Last Spike. Please support our new game, Combat Infantry. This fast-paced tactical game handles WWII squad level with a 12 page rulebook and, of course, our famous wood blocks… a battalion of blocks.

The name of this game is inspired by the Combat Infantry Badge shown below. This cherished award was given to American infantry who participated in combat under hostile fire. The badge depicts a Springfield musket on a blue bar on a wreath of oak leaves. Other nations had similar awards.

There have been many squad level games published over the past 40 years, but Combat Infantry is really different. The rules are just 12 pages long, but you will find their depth of play remarkable. This is partly due to two simple game mechanics.

First, our signature hardwood blocks give you fog-of-war with no muss or fuss. Because of smoke, cover, and a compelling need to "keep your head down", fog-of-war is essential to simulate WWII tactical combat. No squad level game can claim to be realistic without it.

The campaign is up and running now. They're about 3/5 of the way to their goal with still 26 days left to go"
