I have enjoyed reading the Operational Matters OCS Guide and breaking out the included Sicily II game has been great! I've learnt a lot from the veteran submissions, which have been excellent for me as an OCS newcomer - I'm hooked.

But, I keep thinking about the same for the TCS too. A 'Tactical Matters' TCS Guide with similarly sized game included? I'd be in for that!

Thoughts?

Glad you think so!

We may as well throw in a 'Grand Matters' GTS Guide and a 'Standard Matters' SCS Guide as well I suppose...

For us ACW gamers, can we get a "Line of Matters" for the LoB series?

And Battalion Matters while we're at it.

Any ideas for what subject the game included in Tactical Matters would cover? Would Bastogne work?

As someone trying to get started in TCS right now this is a great idea.

I thought of 'Battalion Matters' for BCS and 'Various Matters' for VCS but considered there might not be enough material to showcase in the 'Matters' format. On the other hand, it would be a great way to ramp those series up with new additions! (not that ramping up is needed)

Bastonge would be great for 'Standard Matters' but has been in circulation recently. I was thinking a new and improved GD'40 perhaps for 'Tactical Matters'? It's one map and about the size of Sicily II.

Or, maybe something new all together!!!

Sorry to the great people at MMP and associated with The Gamers if all this is getting too enthusiastic and starting a whole new 'Matters' series/branding for you!

Lee, care to weigh in on 'Tactical Matters'?

Are you aware of Lee's YouTube video tutorials for TCS? They are very helpful.

Hi Jon, yes I have been through them a couple of times. And, you are right - I did find them extremely helpful. I think Lee has done a great job of explaining the series.

I've looked through some of the new GTS videos too but don't have any of those games, yet.

In terms of a 'Tactical Matters' idea, apart from an awesome new game, I thought it would be great to have a collection of articles from different veteran's perspectives of, and experiences with, the series. Great for learning and even just for interests sake alone.

That's one of the great things it could offer. Awesome idea!

Examples of OP sheets from basic through to those that would be akin to actual military usage, along with accomanying discussion and examples showcasing various games would be fantastic. Something interesting for everyone at all TCS veterancy levels.

I'd certainly be interested in that.
