ANNOUNCEMENT: UNDAUNTED: NORTH AFRICA COMING JUNE 2020

In Osprey Games

In June 2020, the Undaunted series is set to continue with Undaunted: North Africa, a new two-player deck-building game of tactical combat designed by David Thompson and Trevor Benjamin, with illustrations by Roland MacDonald.

 

The game puts players in command of either the Long Range Desert Group, a reconnaissance and covert operations unit of the British Army, or a unit of the conventional Italian army. Each player will have to use their forces and the landscape to their advantage as they strive to claim, hold, or destroy key objectives over a series of missions.

 

Building upon the critically-acclaimed Undaunted system, Undaunted: North Africa is sure to test players leadership skills to their limit. Fortunately they’ll have some extra tools at their disposal, with the introduction of new actions, soldier types, vehicles, structures, and more!

***

The North African Campaign has begun. Take control of the British Army’s Long Range Desert Group and operate behind enemy lines or command the formidable Italian forces opposing them. In this sequel to Undaunted: Normandy, players will once again lead their sides through a varied series of missions. As casualties mount, wounded units leave the players’ decks, forcing them to adapt in the face of changing tactical circumstances. Use your cards to strengthen your forces, deploy vehicles to advance rapidly across the battlefield, and seize the initiative as you determine the outcome of the North African Theatre.
