What is Skirmish: 52C about?
SKIRMISH: 52C is a modern-era skirmish-sized wargaming rules system that aims to offer a unique experience at every game session.
Winning strategies must be formulated on the fly and against overwhelming odds.
The rules are designed to provide the same level of clarity and comprehensiveness found in rules systems meticulously crafted for competitive play. The balance of competitive rulesets is not present in SKIRMISH: 52C.
Instead, players deal with the harsh reflection of war’s potential realities. In the face of adversity, you play the hand you are dealt and hope for better luck the next time.
Number of Players
SKIRMISH: 52C is optimized for play by one to two players. It is possible to accommodate additional players, although it is suggested that players divide control of a team’s models as opposed to introducing additional teams. In these situations, model counts greater than 8 per team are recommended.
SKIRMISH: 52C has been designed to reflect abstracted modern infantry combat on Earth. The ruleset can be used to simulate the battles of the 20th century and beyond. Scope: SKIRMISH: 52C is a skirmish-sized miniature wargame. Players assume the role of a squad leader, commanding 4-12 soldiers.
The game is played in 2.5 dimensions. There is a degree of abstraction regarding line of sight and terrain characteristics. With this abstraction, SKIRMISH: 52C can be played using a two-dimensional surface, such as a dry-erase board, in conjunction with coins or similar tokens, but it is not required. Furthermore, three-dimensional terrain features can also be implemented using this abstraction. For example, the height of terrain features do not need to be appropriately scaled to the soldier proxies used.
Game world time for each model’s turn is about a minute long. Most games can be completed in one hour.
