Rommel can be played with miniature figures and terrain -OR- with “unit cards” on any flat surface. You may in fact use both in the same game, since the cards can act as labels and play-aids for your bases of miniatures.
The basic game introduces players to the operational decisions of a second world war general. Two players can complete a game in 2-3 hours. The full advanced game features:
