A lot of folks have expressed growing interest in my Freedom Squadron project – a Savage Worlds driven love letter to “G.I. Joe.” This entire project came about thanks to my meeting the great guys at Spyglass Games, playing their remarkable deck-building, cooperative board game and falling in love with it in every way. Not only is the game – designed by Michael Knight and Jeff Arbough – a brilliant concept that combines many different elements in ways I’ve not seen at the table before, it’s a gorgeous presentation of a world clearly inspired by the coolest stuff from our childhood, yet with modern sensibilities that excite our more sophisticated inner children.
Every single person who’s played this game has loved it. You really should get a copy while you still can…
VENOM Assault is a cooperative game for 1-5 players. In VENOM Assault, players are tasked by the United Nations to thwart a global terrorist group on the edge of taking over the world, known only as VENOM. After discovering VENOM’s evil plan, the U.N. has called for the most elite soldiers of the world to gather together, work as a squadron, and stop their evil plans. As the U.N.’s greatest tacticians, players assemble their squadrons from the soldiers and vehicles that arrive from around the world in order to strengthen their forces!
Players must be careful, as VENOM has already assembled their forces against the world. There is no time to waste, and your squadrons must act quickly and decisively in order to gain the upper hand. The members of Freedom Squadron will have to take on many strategically placed villains if they hope to have a chance to stop evil in its tracks!
