This is my first time hearing about this game. Just getting back into the hobby, but if this is AK "done right" then I'm intrigued.

It's mostly being followed on Consimpress Development and Compass Games on Facebook right now. The old AC Forum has activity, but when the new AC Game ships next month, and we can pop it open, then the Love will flow kiss ahhhhhhh...

Mine arrived today. However, I have such a backlog of games I want to play that I don't know when I'll get to it.

I am still waiting, but that is because I am hidden in Switzerland, between the Alps and Lake Geneva !
The longer the wait, the better the reward !

Is there a reason it should be?

I'm so new to the hobby that I have no horse in the race, but I see people recommend AK over this - then again, both have similar ratings on BGG.

I may try the Vassal module and see how it plays. I imagine it may be similar to Russian Campaign? ie. not especially "accurate", but fun.

TAC has the reputation of "Afrika Korps made right".
Its designer also designed The Russian Campaign, which is a good classic wargame.
And Afrika Korps is OOP and is very ugly, while TAC has been revamped, witb options that were implemented along the years of oractice by many gamers.

Those are some reasons which could lead one to purchase it rather than AK.

Thanks for the info Robin, it sounds like it's worth a deeper look on my part.

I was thinking about picking this up, even though I own the original version, as I'm pretty impressed with Compass Games productions. However, reading another thread here yesterday, it sounds like there is a distressing amount of errata with this new edition, including map and counter issues. That has caused me to pause and reconsider a purchase.
