In the world of tabletop games, designers face the challenge of helping gamers immerse in historical battles such as World War II or conflicts set in the far future. In this area, Byron Collins at Collins Epic Wargames has been successful in giving players a range of immersive tactical games set in these conflicts and settings.
The company is well known for the award-winning Frontline General: Spearpoint 1943 series, a fast-paced two-player tactical card wargame and expansions set in World War II that covers the Western and Eastern fronts. The company has also had a successful Kickstarter campaign for Polyversal, a 6mm to 15mm mass combat sci-fi miniatures system that allows players to use the game’s miniatures, which have been designed by five major manufacturers like Hawk Wargames, or their own to recreate battles set in a near-future war-torn Earth.
