6 days ago

KARDS, the World War II card game, continues to evolve with our Covert Operations expansion. Covert Operations will add  87 new cards and completely new game mechanics on June 11. Britain receives 15 new cards (3 Elite, 3 Special, 4 Limited, 5 Standard) and Pre-sales are still open with a 20% discount. If this strategy appeals to you, we will have battle ready decks available immediately on release. You will find it under Going Commando Deck


For Britain, the focus is on strengthening and enhancing existing archetypes, particularly the Commandos and British Air. This article will delve into the strategic enhancements for these archetypes

Enhancing British Commandos

British Commandos played a pivotal role in victory in Europe. Traditional Commando decks use No. 10 Commando and a plethora of orders to ride to victory, with Crusader Mk II providing the drawing power. The new expansion gives players more ways of getting No. 10 Commandos and a new way to win through Infiltrate.
