Combat Infantry is a fast-paced World War II squad level game, employing our wooden blocks. The game system features innovative and interactive rules for Fire Combat, Close Combat, Morale, and Leaders. The game is sophisticated, yet very playable.
You command a German or American infantry battalion, composed of three infantry companies and a heavy weapons company. Expansion sets will include British, Soviet, Italian, and Japanese battalions.
Unit types include:
Units are organized by battalion, company, and platoon and must maintain unit integrity.
No WWII squad level game can claim accuracy without depicting fog-of-war (keep your head down or die). The wood blocks in this game provide fog-of-war and step reduction with no muss or fuss.
Two 16.5" x 22" geomorphic maps at a scale of 100 meters per hex are included..
There have been many squad level games published over the past 40 years, but Combat Infantry is really different. The rules are just 12 pages long, but you will find their depth of play remarkable. This is partly due to two simple game mechanics.
First, Their signature hardwood blocks give you fog-of-war with no muss or fuss. Because of smoke, cover, and a compelling need to "keep your head down", fog-of-war is essential to simulate WWII tactical combat. No squad level game can claim to be realistic without it.
Second, leadership rules that reward players who maintain unit integrity – squads belong to specific platoons, and platoons belong to specific companies, each with their own commanders.
Six scenario cards are included. These depict firefights from the American Invasion of Normandy to the Battle of the Bulge. Each scenario takes one to two hours to play. There are also four generic scenarios.

22 wooden markers
2 Large Geomorphic Maps (16.5" x 22")
