PR: The Art of War Tabletop Rules Announced by Slitherine

Armchair General

Over the last 6 months or so Slitherine have been working on a secret project code named OWR. We are now able to announce the real name of the project – The Art of War, is a Tabletop Miniatures Wargaming System. Just for clarity – it is not a computer game, but a system for resolving battles on the tabletop using dice (computers are not involved at all!). The rules are designed to be easy to pick up and learn for gamers of all ages, yet with enough subtleties to allow the master tactician to gain an advantage. Initially we are focusing on the ancient and medieval period from 3000BC to 1500AD. The design team is exceptionally talented and includes renowned designers and players. We expect the system to go in to beta testing soon. The revolutionary system has no record keeping and more information on it can be found here.
