In FNG: Tour of Duty you’ll step into the dusty, muddy boots of a Grunt, a Boonierat who slogs through jungle and rice paddies, and fights house to house in Hue City and scores of villages and towns across Vietnam. You will be Infantry, but you will encounter people of different Professions during your Tour of Duty that will serve as the focus of Missions, help or hurt you in your campaign – or just add to your story.
Because it’s all about the Story; your Story!
What: Wargame/RPG rules for the Vietnam War. Scale: Man to man combat. 1 figure equals 1 man; 1 model equals 1 vehicle. Your Role: Players can command from a small team of soldiers to a squad or two. Playability: Designed for solo, same side and head to head play.

Bullets thwack into the muddy paddy you’re using as Cover. A light machine gun has part of your Squad pinned down. Two of your men are lying wounded out in the open and screaming for help while one of your guys is “hunkered down” behind that fallen log and isn’t moving anytime soon. There’s a bomb laden plane overhead that could help, but you have no way to signal. All hell is breaking loose and everyone is looking to you for the answer, hoping that you don’t do something dumb to get them all killed like some Fu*#in’ New Guy (FNG). The sweat beads up on your forehead as the pressure mounts, and you wonder; what have I gotten myself into??
