I only came across this game yesterday and I am very excited after reading the rules last night. I own TOI, COH and LnL BOH and I think that this ruleset might be better than all of them.I have just one question (at the moment).

The rules state that support weapons can only be used once per turn, therefore if Player A fires a support weapon during his segment of the turn he cannot fire it in opportunity fire in Player B's segement of the same turn and likewise if Player B fires a support weapon in opportunity fire during Player A's segment of a turn he cannot fire it in his segment of the same turn.

Is this correct or can a support weapon be fired in opportunity fire in the opponents segment of a turn as well as firing during the owners segment of the same turn?

Many thanks

As I understand it, in the After Action Phase (5.36) of a player's turn all players remove Fire markers on their units. So when it comes around to the following players movement and, hence, your Op Fire, I don't see why the support weapon (and associated unit's APFP) couldn't be used again. There doesn't seem to be anything prohibiting it in rule 13.8, it looks to me just like a normal AP attack.

Plus MGs get to set up (nasty) fire lanes during Op fire.

Barry, is that right?

PS. Welcome to the V&V area, Mark. I too got very excited when I found this game. A modernized, fast-playing and exciting Squad Leader. LnL BoH is quite nice, but even it seems "heavy" after playing V&V for a week now.

Yep, you got it! At the end of each player segment the Move and Fire markers are removed, so each player has his units available during the next player segment to move or fire, whichever applies.

Thank you David and Barry for your prompt replies.

Congratulations Barry on designing a game that looks to be uncomplicated, streamlined and above all fun.

Unfortunately the UK doesn't have all the copy shops and hobby stores that you seem to have in the USA so I may struggle to get my printed copy to the level that some seem to have managed.

Thanks again

Mark

Mark, you're very welcome -- thank you for deciding to join us. It's always good to see another recruit, and I hope you can put a set together without too much trouble.

Whew -- that's high praise, and I really appreciate it. Those are all great games.

That, to me, is the highest praise of all -- and what it's all about.
