I just viewed the Overview video.

As I was looking at the board, I was curiously amazed to

notice all the "golf greens" with the flags and the fairways

leading up to these greens.

It is really distracting to me.

Doesn't appear to me to reflect the military aspect of the game at all.

I don't care for the "greens & flags" either.

It is an unusual choice for a game that is not about golf. Maybe if they were checkered flags (to go with the racing theme)? No, that would not work either.

Yes, we had similar thoughts and finally flags disappeared from the final map.

It is a pick up and deliver race game with wargame dressing... Not a wargame...

I would say it is a better representation of war than most other chit pushing exercises out there. Modern war is logistics.

nobody claims it to be hex and counters war game...

but one definitely feels like commanding an military operation on (nomen omen) operational scale ...

it sure is kind of hybrid
