Special Forces is an easy to learn, fast-paced modern day board game. The game is extremely tactical with each counter representing an individual soldier.

Special Forces focuses on the special operations carried out in 2004 and 2005 Iraq.

Key Points:
The game’s focus is on the exciting aspects of modern combat, without getting bogged down in complex move and shoot rules.

The game action plays-out like a Hollywood action movie, instead of a slow-paced number crunching wargame.

Each soldier is armed with his own weapon, which can be fired in different realistic fire-modes. In addition, each soldier can be equipped with a variety of grenades, rockets, and medical kits.

The game features the outstanding artwork of professional artist Nicholas Eskubi. You can see more of his work on his website at:

You can be up and playing within minutes, and each battle lasts 30 to 60 minutes.

The game features the “One Roll” game mechanic that resolves
attack accuracy, damage, and ammo use, all in one die roll.

Special Forces includes the following weapons:
M4A1 Assault Rifles, M203 Assault Rifle/Grenade Launchers,
M60 Machine Guns, Fragmentation Grenades, Smoke Grenades,
LAW Rockets, AK47 Assault Rifles, Pistols, RPG7 Rockets
