Sticks and Stones: Platoon Level Combat in World War IV is a 2-player hex and counter war game designed by Mark H Walker.
Taking place in an alternate 1987, players use a card-assisted system to control US and Soviet forces as they fight for control of parts of Eastern Europe.
Sticks and Stones is part of the Platoon Commander series of games and features a colour coded range system for the many mechanised units featured.
This video includes a playthrough of a few turns to give you a feel for how the game plays.
I hope it helps you decide whether the game is for you. Thanks for watching.
