I've been playing wargames full on for the best part of a year now and feel I have a proper grasping of wargames in terms of both wargaming strategies and a good grasp of medium complex wargames in terms of the rules and how to make use of game rules to your advantage etc.

Now my girlfriend has finally decided to fully engage with the hobby but she is a complete novice with only the basic concept of what a wargame involves basically from what I've told her.

My question is, given the fact that wargames that cover a whole conflict tend to be complex by nature for what's involved, just how suitable is this game for a novice with its 3.00 weight factor on here which seems light to me for a game of this type.

I'm quite a good teacher and along with getting her into wargames and gaming strategies, I would aim to use the game as a teaching tool for both wargames and the whole WWI conflct in general an area that she is certainly interested in.

Does this game fit the bill?

In short: Yes, it does! Not much complexity, and well laid out rules.

When it is your turn to send a VASSAL move, the wait is excruciating. When it's my turn, well, I've been busy.

Agree this is a pretty good entry game in a lot of respects. In particular, a lot of rules can be learned "on the fly" (you don't need to learn the air rules until one player starts getting planes; you don't need to learn the Greek entry rules until they come up).
