I received an advance copy of C3i #29 from RBM Studio (hot off the presses), and as usual the issue is nothing short of fabulous!

Fear cannot be banished, but it can be calm and without panic; it can be mitigated by reason and evaluation.

Wait, there's an EotS-like mini game in the next C3i?

*giddyness intensifies*

I was just thinking the other day this system could make a pretty interesting game just focusing on the Solomons campaign.

Plan Orange is not a mini game but a one map game with 48 cards and the entire US and Japanese OOB. FWIW

I was referencing that it was a magazine game ... I wasn't attempting to diminish your effort on the product.

More EotS is a good thing.

You can bet your Aunt Suzy's cushy behind that I will start making a separate VASSAL module for it as soon as I get my hands on it.

I can only think of a couple of cushy behinds I would take over a Colmenares Vassal module. (FWIW, Aunt Suzy isn't one of them...)

Can it be used as sort of training to ease into EotS? Or does it not really work that way?

Yes, if you can play either one you can play the other.

This doesn't give the date either, but it's at least a sign of official backing:

This is the only look at me you will get. The first hint the bad guy gets that I am nearby will be the sound of the torpedo coming out of his baffles with high up-doppler.

This is all great news.

But my Aunt Susan would like a word with you...

As I understand it Rodger will be making an announcement on this shortly.

I think this won't be a P500 nor C3i Immortal thing any longer.

It will just be available when ready I guess.

Always good to mention the source when making a statement like this.

Steve, how many cards will there be?

I don't have EotS, but I'm really looking forward to this being my first dabble into that system.

For shame Gordo, Dockter has a copy, play a match with him.

In Plan Orange, each side (US versus Japan) has 24 cards, so 48 cards in total.

Each side has their entire military order of battle for 1932, so you have the entire US army, army air corps, USN and Marine Corps. The same goes for the Japanese.

I will be posting more information as soon as I have a moment to write it and I will be doing a video on the game by the weekend.
