Tell us anything else you want to say about Fields of War MG that I haven’t asked or you haven’t said already. Fields of War MG is (as far as we know) the first of its kind. Fields of War takes the strategy from table top war games and the collectible rareness from most TCG and binds them together to make a fast paced war game that’s easy to play. Our mission is to provide the world with a war game like no other. We want to have a tournament based war game that can be played in a short time but still have that feel of a hard fought battle.
