Hi everyone. Does anyone know what is the actual name of this game?

Read this thread for the details.

But on what basis are you pretty sure? It's pretty evidently been published with both titles. I'm pretty sure that your merely feeling pretty sure would be pretty unconvincing to the pretty admins.

I've always known it as Fields of Action (plural), since it's Sackson's derivative of the earlier Lines of Action.

That was my thought exactly.

Anyhow, my first attempt to correct the name was declined quickly and my second attempt to add the name as an alternative name seems to be ignored. If you agree that the game should also be named "Fields of Action", please submit the correction

I submitted a suggested correction. We'll see how it goes.

I supported the correction with additional publication information -- that it was published as Fields of Action in New Rules for Classic Games (John Wiley & Sons), which is a book by the same author as the GAMES Magazine editor. Anyway, thanks for bringing it to the fore, Arty, and I'm glad you were able to implement it.
