I got mine yesterday, and looking through the rules, is it just me or are others finding it hard how discern to actually play out of that rulebook? It is pretty, but dang I am finding the flow of play hard to figure out.

I thought it was clear from the rules. And the playbook has examples of play that cover complete turns.

Looks straight forward to me, especially as it seems like it's a simplification of the EastFront II system. Of course getting it on the table and walking through the sequence of play may unearth some questions.

I love the playbook. I sat with both at the same time. Read rule section then read example in the playbook. Very clear to me.

Nothing in particular yet other than when I was reading the rulebook, I just wasn't getting any idea of the flow of the game. I plan on stickering it soon, and maybe set it up to help.

Scott,

You will want to play a good part of the game solitaire the first time. That will help you get the mechanics down. It is "different" as wargames go, but I am really enjoying it.

It will be a must 3-player with you and Blake. The years initially move along pretty quickly as there isn't any movement going on.

I also read through the rules twice and then the player's book. That really helps.

Just finished our first game. There was the initial hemming and hawing to get started but after the first 2-3 turns we had the basic flow down. Of course lots of errors made in mechanics and strategy but at least we got the first run jitters out and am pretty sure the second one will be easier after a rulebook reread.

Rip off the bandaid ... think "1, 2, 3" but yank it off when you get to "2" and you'll do fine.

Re-read the rules today at lunch. Clicked much better. And, as it did, I must say, this game looks slick.

And now played on Sunday. Fantastic game, intuitive, and, frankly, fantastic.
