    2nd Edition Rules Finally provided on 12 April 2011. More than a year after they were promised. They are a vast improvement over what was released with the 1st Edition of the game. Still, even with the new rules, this game is NOT for everyone. Even those who enjoy solitaire games will find themselves knocking their heads against a wall trying to figure out how to implement the rules. Thankfully there are the CSW and BBG Forums.

    I spent 22 years and retired as an Infantry Platoon Sergeant. This game is on the mark. Much more than ASL. For the Second Edition, I hope they put the Unit Crest on the Box Cover Artwork. That may not be important to most but it is to me since I served in C, Co 1-9 Infantry 1995-1997 at Camp Casey Korea.

    I had a terrible struggle learning this game, but it was well worth the effort in the end. It's my all time favorite solitaire game. The game brilliantly simulates the challenges of command and control.

    THE quintessential card-driven solitaire game. Complex and rewarding. It really needs to be reprinted.

    My all time favorite solitaire game. The tension is high. My decisions and strategy have real effects on the game. Command and control, signaling, fire control behavior, authentic termanology - the list goes on. Highly recomended.

    Fields of Fire is easily my favorite solo wargame. To say it is unplayable in its current version is ridiculous. I held off buying the first edition for a long time due to bad word of mouth, but am so glad I took the plunge. Obviously, the rulebook could use improvement, but I found the game worth the effort to learn in the first edition. Any improvement can only make a great game better.

    Your Mission:

    The Game:

    Fields of Fire is a solitaire game of commanding a rifle company between World War II and Present Day. The game is different from many tactical games in that it is diceless and card based. There are two decks used to play. The Terrain Deck is based on a specific region and is used to build a map for the various missions your company must perform. The Action deck serves many purposes in controlling combat, command and control, various activity attempts. The units of the company are counters representing headquarters elements, squads, weapons teams, forward observers, individual vehicles or helicopters. A single playing is a mission and several missions from an historical campaign are strung together for the player to manage experience and replacements. A mission can be played in about 1 – 2 hours.

    This game is based on three actual campaigns experienced by units of the 9th US Infantry in World War II, Korea, and Vietnam. “Keep Up the Fire” is the motto of the 9th Infantry, known as the “Manchus” for their service in the Boxer Rebellion.
