Conflicts: WW1 Western Front is a huge turn based strategy game which takes place on the Western Front of the First World War.

You are in command of the German armed forces - generals, infantry, cavalry, artillery and the first tank units - and the object of the game is to conquer the strategic parts of France as quickly as possible.

This is a huge game, and if you haven't played games from the Conflict-series, you may want to start with Operation Barbarossa or D-Day before taking on the Great War of 1914-1918.

If you want to test the strategy game and its mechanics, a free 20-turn DEMO version is available at:

+ Tactical Areas/Move Points: Some hexagons are connected together forming slowly evolving Tactical Areas, and you can move between such hexagons using Tactical MPs instead of regular MPs. This opens up a completely new tactical dimension.
+ Economy & Production: You decide how to use the industrial resources that you capture: Build railway networks, produce Rail MPs, manufacture minefields, etc.
+ Railway Network: To navigate the huge game area efficiently you need to plan where to build railway network.
+ Mud: Areas which see lot of troop movement and battles will turn into mud, which might consume extra move points, so you cannot get bogged down on the war of attrition if you want to keep the front lines advancing.
+ Generals: Generals support the closest units in battle at the cost of 1 MP, while the front line units located too far away from Generals might lose 1 MP.

+ Long-lasting: Thanks to in-built variation and the game's smart AI technology, each game provides a unique war gaming experience.
+ Competitive: Measure your strategy game skills against others fighting for the Hall of Fame top spots.
+ Experienced units learn new skills, like improved attack or defense performance, extra move points, damage resistance, ability to cross rivers without losing move points, etc.
+ Settings: Various options are available to alter the look of the gaming experience: Switch between terrain themes, change difficulty level, choose icon set for units (NATO or REAL), decide what is drawn on the map, change font and hexagon sizes.
+ Tablet friendly strategy game: Automatically scales the map for any physical screen size/resolution from small smartphones to HD tablets, while settings allow you to fine tune hexagon and font sizes.
+ Inexpensive: The entire WWI western front for the price of a coffee!

In order to be a victorious general, you must learn to coordinate your attacks in two ways. First, as adjacent units give support to an attacking unit, keep your units in groups in order to gain local superiority. Secondly, it is rarely the best idea to use brute force when it is possible to encircle the enemy and cut off its supply lines instead.

    WWI:WF just keeps getting better. It is begging for a stable-mate... WWI:EF.

    Joni's games are either at their best or worst with the 'big picture' titles like this and Eastern Front (really good) or Civil War (nonsensical) and, sadly, American Revolution (although I haven't checked out the updates). I really like where he's taken this one, and he's the only guy out there with the historical insight to attempt this era. Otherwise I'm waiting on a pure naval offering and pla

    Love the game. Feels like I am bogged down in the mud. Needs to speed German movement up in first year and set a time limit.

    Wow! What a game. Challenging but would like to see a time limit like Civil War. Well worth the attention of any serious gammer.

    Great game, German player too weak at first. Mines help with German resting units. Brutal game!
