Cool stuff! But don't you think that people interested in this level of complexity will perhaps prefer different wargames?


Yes and No Confused

It is great that every copy has been snapped up already, but I think that most of them went to preorders, rather than the man in the street. Some of us are still waiting for stocks to arrive in shops.

I also think that most of the people who preorderd knew what they were getting into and,hence, were at least border line wargamers before they ordered.

Many of those people were probably frustrated ASL (Advanced Squad Leader) players like myself, looking for an easy to play version of "Squad Leader" rather than a WWII version of "Battle Cry". What has been delivered is neither, it will stand on its own as a great wargame and a great board game and will set the standard for years to come.

What Ubergeek is doing, is ahead of its time in that he, is attempting to reconcile the "Command and Colors" system with the ASL system and incorporate the various units that you will find in the boxes of miniatures that people will add to the game. (The 5 boxes I ordered last week are ready for collection) Very Happy

The rules are sound as they stand, but the system begs for expansions. DOW will come out with the official expansions, but the work of Ubergeek, and others, will give them the impetus to do so.

The great thing about a game like this is that it can be used as a stepping stone to get people to consider war games as a fun hobby and not a heinous celebration destruction. Shocked

Now where are those 6mm figures and 3D terrain.

Cheers
Chris
