Advance Wars works well as a video game. But as a board game? Yeah, looks like it works pretty well as a board game, too.
First designed last year, "Skirmish Wars" is the creation of Andrew Tullsen, Matthew Kloth and Brandon Pennington. It's not trying anything fancy, which is a good thing: the beauty of Advance Wars is in its simplicity, not its 400-page rulebook.
It's content to simply transfer the video game to a board game setting, then, along with some beautiful new artwork and the promise of four-player scenarios.
Best part? Because all it needs is a board and some pieces, you can print it all off below and play yourselves.
