Great Escape Games

Great Escape Games



Great Escape Games was formed in 2005 from a desire to play with their large collections of 28mm World War Two miniatures. There were three of them to start with: Mark, Stuart and Chris. They all had lots of miniatures and had all previously worked at Games Workshop together.

They started work on Rules of Engagement a long time ago. So long ago in fact they didn't even know they were creating a set of rules. Their desire came from being unhappy with the selection of rules systems available at the time. There were plenty of sets out there, just none that they thought met all of their requirements. They wanted a set of rules that were fun to play, represented combat during World War Two and beyond, weren't overly complicated or overburdened with tables and reference materials, and that they could play in an evening with their already huge collections of miniatures.

So that's how Rules of Engagement started to be created. They had tinkered with and adjusted all the sets they already had and had a set of "house rules" which they played amongst the three original members of Great Escape Games. They all loved the rules and felt that they had something to offer the wider gaming community. And so the rules developed into something far bigger than they ever really planned them to be at the start, but now years later they still love playing the game as much now as they did back in the day.

Since RoE was released they have added additional source books covering the Eastern Front, a Campaign system and a book full of tanks. They have released two downloadable PDF based scenario products. As well as this they have released a large number of free downloadable orders of battle to allow gamers to play with forces not currently featured in any of their publications.

Their latest release has taken us in to a new area completely, Clash of Empires was released in 2011. They had played with several Ancient wargaming rules but found there were lots of areas they didn't like, as with their experience gaming WW2, so Clash of Empires, theirr own Ancients rules were born. Since then they have released two source books, "The Rise and Fall of Persia" and "Age of Ravens". They have uploaded a large number of free army lists in the same way they did for RoE to allow gamers to get to grips with each other without having to wait for the relevant book to be released.
