Just read this little tidbit from the latest MMP newsletter:

"Also coming up for preorder shortly is the latest from Dean and his crew. Beyond the Rhine (OCS) is a four-map monster OCS game covering the entire Western Front from September 1944 to the spring of 1945. This game includes scenarios covering Market-Garden and the Battle of the Bulge (the latter being set on its own single map sheet for convenience.)"

So just when you thought the OCS press wagon would be quietening down...

To debate the definition of what a wargame is. Duh.

No, discussing a specific wargame in the Wargames Forum seems to be the problemshake

So why is there a Wargame Forum again?


For stuff like "Implementing the Perfect Solution... to counter clipping," I suppose...

But I'd rather discuss actual, specific games and game systems. Speaking of which... Anybody know the ETA on the Hungarian OCS title?

Thank you very much, but I like it just fine. I pick up on a bagillion little wargaming tidbits I wouldn't have otherwise heard of. I don't want to have to subscribe to, without exaggerating, two dozen other forums and constantly filter through a lot of stuff I'm not interested in on the off chance that something that grabs me will come up.

Twice now I've discovered wargames I never heard of before, read the thread, researched a bit more, and 10 days later the game arrived in the post.

With all the many silly threads, which can be fun in their own right, I don't think the wargames subdomain forum on BGG is the place to be too strict on policy.

Being tested by some groups that the designer has reached out to but has not been officially turned in to the OCS honcho John Kisner.

It's all speculative until then because the designer can spend the next five years working on it until he submits it. Let's hope not as late war East Front is cool and I've seen the designer's early drafts and it looks really cool.

I'm so happy to see OCS titles broadening out off the East Front rather than
more updated reprints.

Beyond (no pun intended) BTR, there's a number of other OCS designs in the works. Some I'm not at liberty to mention all of them since I'm not intimate with the designs and others are early in their design stages... So there will hopefully be a steady stream of designs in the future.

There was a couple pretty pic heavy play test AARs going on in the OCS CSW thread a while back. Here's a link for those interested; you'll need to just go through the whole thread for more stuff, but they posted pretty regularly.
