“These reports can’t be true,” muttered the Secretary of Defense, staring over the files in disbelief. “Most of these weapons should not even be possible to manufacture. Surely this is some sort of scare tactic! Are we sure this is coming from a reliable source?”
A fist slammed down on the desk, but the figure remained in the shadows. “Of course I’m sure! You think I’d call you down here on account of speculation?! What you see there, Mr. Secretary, is the next phase of the war. If we hope to keep up, then I suggest you learn what you can from those reports. Because they were not easy to come by...”
Fantasy Flight Games is excited to announce the upcoming release of Equipment Cards for Tannhäuser, the board game of tactical combat in an alternate reality where the Great War never ended! This handy card pack features over 200 full-color cards that conveniently contain all the stats and special rules for every piece of equipment from the 13 Tannhäuser products released thus far.
One side of these cards features artwork, stats, and rules for the equipment token which it corresponds with, while the other side indicates which character it is for, if applicable. As an addition, each card indicates what kind of pack (Combat, Stamina, or Command) that particular piece of equipment belongs to for that character, letting you prepare for your game without even opening the rulebook!
Included in the Equipment Cards pack are reference cards for the following products:
These cards will speed up your game and make it easier to equip your characters on the fly. The Equipment Cards expansion also includes rules reference cards to keep the focus on the game. In addition, future Tannhäuser releases will come with equipment cards such as these in addition to equipment tokens!
So prepare for the battles at hand with Equipment Cards for Tannhäuser, coming later this winter!
Note: These cards use the latest Tannhäuser rules found in the Revised Edition Rulebook.
Tannhäuser is a squad based tactical board game set in an alternate timeline in which WWI has never ended. The forces of the Reich have turned to the occult, while the forces of the Union have delved into alien technology and developed deadly weapons of war. Using the revolutionary Path-Finding System, Tannhäuser is quick and easy to play.
Excellent, Does anybody know when they will hit the shops?
Finally! Why didn't the playtesters complain of horrible setups and book sharing? These should have been with the first edition and definitely with the revised edition.
Oh well, better late than never. Thanks for doing the RIGHT thing FFG!
I was just thinking that cards would make this an easier game to play. Will be picking them up when they get released. Whenever that may be . Now.... How about reprinting Yula !
@Malechi: Back in early 2009 I proposed to ToY some equipement cards as an expansion to the game. when I met them at GenCon Paris. Sadly they where already in the process of selling the game so they didn't follow up.
I must say that your cards were an inspiration for me when I worked on my equipement cards for the revised edition and I will always have them on the BSA for those who are still playing Classic Tannhauser.
Tannhauser is having another useful expansion - thanks FFG, that's good!
Note to self: Order Equipment Cards when available. :) This is going to be a great year for Tannhauser! Thanks FFG.
Wish I had thought of the Equipment Cards as being a useful tool for the game ... Oh, yeah I did 3 years ago!
Nothing makes me much happier than a good community-inspired product and those cards are clearly something that was asked by (and done by) the fans of the game.
The dice value on the Trench Knife refer to the melee attack dice pool but I wonder it could have been used with other dice pools or how it will work with combined items like the Demon Taint. Maybe these will have a +X instead of a fixed value in this section. In the end I still think that dice pool summary by pack is what work the best. ^_^
Yes, reprint Yula PLEASE.
Yes, yes, yes!
I loved the work Droesler and plague have done with the referenca cards as it has really made the game playable for me and my gaming friends- still the printed out cards (even printed on photo paper were rather flimsy, easily destroyed and expensive to make).
Releasing the official cards will make the game top notch and fill the last missing piece needed to make tannhouser really shine.
Now reprint Yula dammit! >,<
This is good news. Thumbing through the rulebook was crazy at best when both players needed info at the same time. I like FFG's approach to making Tannhauser a better game. Keep up the great additions.
Kudos to those who've made cards before and kudos to FFG for listening to their fan base.
This elevates Tannhauser to a much more accessible game. Brilliant!
