Coming to a table near you

We all love a bit of Advance Wars: on the sofa, on the bus and probably even on the loo. But on the table, with cards and counters instead of buttons and bleeps?

Well, that's the ingenious idea of several enterprising chaps who've devised Skirmish Wars: Advance Tactics, transporting the turns-based war game into a turns-based war board game, complete with buildings, CO powers and plenty of cutesy little units.

Although naturally some liberties have been taken to keep the game flowing, it certainly looks remarkably close to the handheld titles and we at Nintendo Life would certainly love to get our hands on it. If you're keen to try a new spin on the title – including the new ability to knock all the units off the table if you lose – you can download the whole set from Board Game Geek.
