Frontline General: Spearpoint 1943 Eastfront - Kickstarter

Byron Collins - a good friend of mine - has a kickstarter campaign going for the next game from his board game company (Collins Epic Wargames).  Spearpoint 1943 Eastern Front (the original, which takes place in Italy, is a fantastic game, and was nominated for an Origins award).  This is a WW2 card game based on deck construction, but the game is not just a generic deck builder, it also features some very interesting scenarios, as well as dice based combat.  As the game unfolds, it has a great tactical feel to it, and the battle feels like it is moving through stages (first contact; focus forces; and finally decisive engagement).  All in about 30 minutes.
