2 PBEM plays. I'd have been up for more, but my opponent didn't enjoy the way it plays PBEM with the interruptions for op fire, etc. I don't mind those interruptions but with this particular opponent, we have mostly played games with none of that, so I get it. That said, I really enjoyed this. I'm sure I'll find a way to play some more. I wish it wasn't centered on a single division, but that seems to be a popular trend in tactical games lately.

Format: Vassal PBEM utilizing Dropbox

Teach: I can help with the rules

Experience: Played the first two scenarios several times


I have played this using PBEM and it works at the cost of speed. It's hard for me to find time for face-to-face so if you're like me and wanting to spend more time with this game or learning, this is a good opportunity

I've played through several of the smaller scenarios in the last few months. I continue to like the system when the unit count is lower, as it easily handles combined arms in a satisfying way. Combat is a bit grindy, and the command system bogs down in the larger scenarios. Still different enough that I'm happy to keep it alongside my squad level tactical games of choice, and am looking forward to the new expansion.

I'm generally pretty easy going when it comes to tactical WW2 systems, but this one didn't work for me. I didn't really like the combat resolution, and the overall playing time was about twice what I was willing to tolerate for game that isn't that deep.

I'll be sticking with Conflict of Heroes and Combat Commander for now.

Scott and I are winding up Scenario 4, where my Germans ran into Soviet defenders entrenched on the heights outside a village.

Note to self. Using infantry to cross open ground in front of HMGs and MMGs in pillboxes on high ground behind a line of mines and other fortifications: BAD.

Waiting for the reinforcing armor just minutes behind: SMARTER.

My brother Scott and I continue our run through some of the scenarios. Starting scenario 4, “Operation Max and Moritz." We chose it primarily based on the Goldilocks rule: not too big and not too small -- just right for what we want out of the game right now. [As an unsolicited editorial side note, the FFGD expansion currently on P500 is very welcome as it has quite a number of the more bite-sized scenarios.]

I am also nearing completion of a solo run-through of Scenario 3. Against a stiff Russian defense on the outskirts of the town, the Germans were making steady progress, aided in large part to the arrival of 2 Stug platoons.

It seemed like the jig was up for the Soviets when a fresh Battalion of German infantry arrived on the other side of town. And yet, some questionable decisions by German leadership in rushing the attack, combined with some stout defense and good shooting by the hard-pressed Soviet infantry dug in to the south of town, has suddenly put the issue once again in doubt.

Ah, the ebb and flow of combat!

I picked this up a couple years ago and had been itching to try it. Jon agreed to sit down with me and learn the system. We had one restart as I totally botched my first action selection, but nevermind that.

There are some interesting and unique bits here with the order selection system, but we found the ability to break down companies into squads was problematic and resulted in huge amounts of die rolling once you got close. Plus the overall playing time was just too long for us.

So, I'm sticking with Conflict of Heroes for now.

Scott and I kicked off learning scenario 0 to brush up on the game since we haven't played it for a while. Quite the change of pace to dip into tactical level chaos after months of Unconditional Surrender! World War 2 in Europe at the 30000 ft level.

#30

This is more game and less sim and like a Martin Wallace wargame, focuses on an interesting command mechanic, in this case, the friction of war, with an interesting Euroish command matrix.
