This is a clever idea...instead of a general strategic game on Operation Sealion (which never had a serious chance of success), this game focuses on a hypothetical and localized attack!

Would love to hear more (see images) of this one!

Mike,


Thanks.

Like you say, it's a very different take on the battle.

If you want to get a feel for the character of the game, (sorry, module), think of films like "Went the Day Well" and "The Eagles Has Landed".

I'll start to post up a little more info over the next few days.

Hmm. So.... another solitaire wargame from the duo responsible for Where There Is Discord: War in the South Atlantic. And announced right after it was published when WTID frenzy is at a peak...

Is this part of some evil genius scheme to force us poor, starving gamers into supporting your diabolical plans of world domination? You two - Mark and Dan, are despicable and cruel.

By the way, you wouldn't just, you know, *happen* to have a preorder site up yet for this game? whistle

Matt,


Sorry, missed your message there.

No, we haven't got anything set up yet for pre-order.

We'll wait to we're a bit closer to publication, and then we'll put something up.

Might think about linking to the Combined Forces Military College web site...

On a slightly different note, the theme of this game reminded me of another I played a few years ago. That game was 2-player wargame that supposed the Germany had won The Battle of Britain and was performing a full scale invasion of Britain. Can anyone remember the name of that game?

BTW, this game sounds great and am one of the many waiting for the reprint of WTID.
