What kind of game is Board Warfare?
If you're seeking an arcade style shooting game with interactive combat this is not the game for you.
"Board Warfare" is a strategy game designed to automate the tedious gameplay of traditional board wargames. Board Warfare is turn based or phase based and does not require input from a player while their opponent is moving or attacking.

Planned changes for the next release:
In the works are:
A more defensive mode for comp player. 
Simple supply rules for supply units. 
Simple transport for ground units on supply or truck units, 
mounted units.
Airborn/AirAssault subject to AAA fire.
Units encountering minefields will be routed back in the direction
from which they entered the minefield.  
FA on minefields, removes minefields.
The facility to view full screen the entire map as is available in the
map editor.
