A while back, I posted a journal about a game some friends of mine and I were planning. It involved using the Attack!! board, and economics/political systems, but then zooming in on each battle and playing a small to medium scale tactical game. Problem is: I'm having a hard time finding a tactical game that can handle land/sea/air combat and not be as convoluted as ASL. I'm thinking of these...any more ideas?

I'm thinking about getting this anyway, but how would it work? I'd have to do the naval combat some other way, but this game looks fast, fun, and easy to teach. And my gaming group likes plastic army men.

I like ASL. However, I don't want to have to teach 4 other guys that have only played Warhammer how to play this.

This looks promising, and it's generic, which is a plus. Would it be feasable to use the system for this but use axis and allies or attack pieces for the board movement, and then the blocks for reference? My guys are gonna have a hard time not playing with minis....

What about this? I hear it's like a less rules intensive ASL, and much cheaper to boot. Whatta ya think?

This is supposidly (according to the demo rules) able to be set in any time period. Question is: How's it play? I haven't had a chance to get the demo printed out yet...

I know it's old...maybe the wrong scale, even. And may not cover as much ground as I need....

These might work. If you have a KB Toys near you, they're going out of business. I saw these on sale for $5.

Several players in our crew are really enjoying this one. Don't know if it has any naval element, though.

You want to "zoom in" as closely as possible.
