Yep, pretty good game, supposedly works well over VASSAL. Why do you ask?

Can't believe I traded this away. Of course now that I want to play it again it is OOP. shake

I've played it a few times, its an excellent introduction to hex and counter wargaming and a nice break from OCS which is a lot heavier.

If it's OOP I would not be surprised if they reprint it at some stage. Last time I looked the Consim folder was quite active, maybe its worth taking a look there.

This is a GREAT game. If you're a hex-and-counter gamer, you must get a copy. Honestly, the MMP/Gamers' SCS game series as a whole is great.

Has anyone tried the mini-scenarios from Operations #53? There were 5 simple scenarios, most only a couple of turns, that made it even better as a introductory wargame. Haven't tried them yet, but the idea is excellent - giving an almost programmed learning approach where you teach one or two new concepts each time.
