In the Trenches #1 - Opening Engagements


Please note that this is a DTP (Desk Top Publishing) game designed on a desktop computer and all components, including the counters which will have to be cut and mounted, are printed on paper. These are designed by some very well-known designers and are a low cost alternative to today's professionally produced games. On rare occasions, some of these games are reproduced by other companies with higher quality components including die-cut counters but most of them are not. If you believe this game to have a professionally produced version, please contact us with your inquiry and we will help you to locate it if it does indeed exist.

In the Trenches: Opening Engagements is the first game of the In the Trenches series. Designed by John Gorkowski, this series enables players to game historically accurate simulations of tactical operations from The Great War. ITT challenges players to move and fight with company-level formations made of separate platoon-sized units during 5-minute, impulse-based turns on historically accurate maps scaled to 100 yards per hex. This approach recreates WWI command and control problems to inspire historically accurate play without forcing decisions.

The first game in the series, Opening Engagements, features a cavalry duel between Austrians and Russians on the Eastern Front, an encounter battle between the French and Germans in the Battle of the Frontiers, and the Japanese/British assault on German positions outside of the German colony of Tsingtao in China.

Included in In the Trenches: Opening Engagements are three 12"x18" maps, 300+ counters, one 27-page rulebook, three operation guides, one reference card, and two D6s.
