Our good friend Andrew Gross created an online version of Hill 218 so you can see for yourself why we like it so much. Download the online version of The Battle for Hill 218 here. MAC compatible for OSX version 10.5.2 or higher.
Hill 218 looks just like any other hill on your map, but High Command says it's important and it's your job to take it. Unfortunately the enemy has the same plan.
What You Get
The Battle for Hill 218 is an abstract strategy card game for two players, taking 15 - 30 minutes to play. It’s easy to learn but has a depth of strategy usually found only in games that take an hour or more to play. The deck box comes with everything needed to play: two army decks, two pairs of Air Strikes, the Hill 218 card and the rulebook.
Basics of Play
You begin play with the Hill 218 card in play and two face-up air strikes set off to the side of play. One side of the hill is your home base; the other is your opponent's. You win the game by occupying both bases; if neither player manages this, the player with the most units remaining when all units and air strikes have been played wins.
You will deploy unit cards, such as
Tanks, Infantry and Heavy Weapons, onto the board. In order to advance you will need to maintain supply lines and do battle with enemy units blocking your path.
Who would enjoy The Battle for Hill 218?
Hill 218 has the simplicity and quick play of a perfect filler game, but has a lot of strategic depth as well. The Your Move Games team still breaks it out every chance we get (especially Darwin and Chad who play pretty much any time they have a deck and fifteen minutes handy).
