Another, wish list could be a new set of command and tactic cards. DoW could sell them in trading card decks. Look how people are trading for those planes in the magazines.


DoW just started selling new card decks on their web site. They match the new Air Tactic cards that come with the Air Pack and they are only $5.00 plus shipping and handling. Cool Merry Christmas!!

I think you're on to something Doc. I have a card game called "Nuclear War" and I remember when they used to sell booster packs for that game. I still see them sometimes at game conventions. I still buy them when I see them because there is one card that I'm looking for that I've never gotten. So you end up with a lot of duplicates, but then you can trade them at other conventions. With a game like Memoir 44 or Battlelore, I think that it could work.

You could sell special tactics cards that wouldn't be available in the game or expansions. Or special unit cards that would give certain units special abilities. One example might be that a German armor unit is a Maus tank that moves 1, has 4 figures, and fires 4-3-3-2. Or maybe a card turns a infantry unit into a heavy weapons infantry unit that has 2 figures, moves 1, and fires 4-3-2.

There could be special section cards as well, like all armor in one section, or special unit activation cards like all arty fire.

This could be very cool and profitable for DoW!

Exactly Surprised Each pack could come with common soldiers/armor of mixed nationality (to make up an entire unit of that nationality) and then have uncommon and rear equipped soldiers and vehicles with their cards. Then, like you said, special command and tactics cards. Maybe throw in a common/uncommon/rare terrain tiles or special rectangle tiles.

I am not talking about a sink-hole of a collectors stuff. But something that would be useful without being a money-pit Shocked

I often view RPG/Grognard rules like the Pirate's Code. They are more like guidelines.

Oh, I know everyone hates trading games. But, nationality booster packs and/or different equipped figures along with command and tactic cards. That is my last suggestion Embarassed

Trading games? wash your mouth out! Razz

BTW it would also be cool to have the Italians and French as expansions, to game some of the battles in Norway, The French/Italian border in 1940, the Vichy French vs the British in Syria and the Italians vs the Russians 1941/42!

Ahhhhh, this explains everything!!!!!! I was re-looking at this thread, and I noticed this one little gem from Roo, and it struck home. Back on Thursday, December 13th, I started spinning in place and forgot who I was for an hour. I had no idea what happened to me. I was suspecting maybe it was aliens. Now I know, it was Roobarbs telepathic powers run amuck, and hit me smack in the cranium from overseas!!!! Dude, I think you're on to something here!!! Laughing Twisted Evil Rolling Eyes
