'65: Squad-Level Combat in the Jungles of Vietnam

Fast, furious, and fun! Are you looking for something new, something fresh? '65 might be the game for you. A squad-level, tactical game, '65 recounts the early battles of the Vietnam War, from Ia Drang to Operation Starlight, and most everything between.

The large and beautiful counters (1" to 1.375" square) represent squads, leaders, heroes, snipers, M-48 and PT-76 tanks, and more. As these units' commander, you will move and fight over several geomorphic game boards as you try to best your opponent in one of eight nail-biting historical scenarios.

The game is card-driven, using a system similar to Flying Pig's Night of Man, adding a sense of delicious uncertainty to the play. "Can I advance my sappers, or does the enemy have a fire card he's just waiting to play?"

Furthermore, the cards simplify the game, containing much of the data needed to play. You won't spend the afternoon with your head in a rulebook when you play '65. This is a game created by gamers for gamers-to-play. '65, squad-level gaming at its best.

Each game includes:

  • Three richly illustrated, 11" x 17" geomorphic game boards.
  • Over 175 huge 1" and 1.375" counters. Bigger is better!
  • One deck of 54 action cards.
  • Nine bonus victory condition cards
  • Full-color rules and scenario booklet

Age: 14+
Players: 2-3
Playing Time: 1-3 hours
