Maquis - a solo board game about the French Resistance

in boardgames

Maquis OverviewMaquis Overview

Maquis is a solitaire worker-placement game with variable goals and a play time of approximately twenty minutes. The player places his resistance agents on spaces around town to achieve his goals - blowing up trains, publishing underground newspapers - but at the same time Milice collaborators and Wehrmacht soldiers patrol the area. Agents who can't make it back to the safe house at the end of the day are arrested, and never seen again.

I have, however, extended the battle engine a bit; naturally I'll add as many of these features as reasonable into the core engine after I'm done. The most significant additions are demonstrated in the below video:
