Thanks!

I hadn't heard of this. Thanks for posting - always looking for a WWI game with some new perspective.

I would be interested. Not sure about that title. Makes it sounds a bit like a party game.

Indeed; and ignoring the party game sound of it, "If only" seems so utterly non-specific that it could apply to any war game. (Is there any war or battle about which it's not possible to think "if only..." and imagine it turning out differently?)

Hmm, and a title made of 2 such common words might be disadvantageous from the point of view of internet searching... I suspect it will produce a lot of false hits.

Let's come up with some alternatives, and post the best on CSW, we might even get co-designer credit

I'll put in the (albeit very bad) first one

Gallipolli 1915 - the Decisive "what if"?

Cheers, Haring

I am very happy to take suggestions about a better name - as someone guessed, it is a terriblly vague search term. I could not get the ifonly.com domain, my actual site is here:

http://www.ifonlythegame.com/

Glad to see that some other people are interested. I am looking for more play testers - I am reaching the end of supervised playtesting and am moving into blind playtesting & final development.

cheers
Geoff

If you want, try to drop by in Montreal in May during Stack Academie 2014 The Quatrieme.

Contact Mark Guenette, the organizer: I believe he may help you out finding playtesters in the Montreal area.
