Quartermaster General: Prelude adds a short pre-game of new “Prelude” cards, setting the stage for WW II.
The Prelude has a truncated sequence of play designed to create differing opening situations from whence regular play can begin.
There are two types of Prelude cards, History and Armament. History cards are (generally) resolved immediately and have a tension modifier. Armament cards are played face down, like response cards, but cost a regular card to use (not to play). When the total tension from history cards gets to 10, regular play begins.
Important: This is an expansion, you also need the base game!
