Did you get a chance to try 5 or 6 player, Rick?

(I got to try a 4 player game)

Most of my plays have been in two or three player scenarios - where I really appreciated the fact that both players were equidistant from each other player - great mechanic!

Darn.

I was really hoping someone could give feedback on how it plays 5-6 player.

Since it's quite rare that wargames can take so many players.

I had a chance to play the 6 player game at TGD. I thought it was cool because instead of being 6 individual players, it becomes 3 teams of two. My teammate and I were able to play at the same time and coordinate our movements and actions to work together. Utilizing the same named sectors as adjacent sectors, and forcing opponents to react in other areas of the board opened up the game board. It was unfortunate that I figured out the best strategy about 1 turn too late, and my partner and I did not win.
Being 3 teams instead of 6 individuals appeared to have shortened the game alot because teammates play simultaneously. That is a nice improvment over sime games that take too long when 6 people are playing.

Thanks Dan.

Hmm so in theory a 6-player game wouldn't take much longer than a 3-player?

(Time saved due to simultaneous team move + a little bit for discussing how to co-ordinate moves?)

Don't think there are many 6-player wargames that can play in 3 hours.

I'd like to thank our current supporters and ask those who have thought about it, but not committed yet to give us a shot. We only need $750 more! I'm sure you won't be disappointed. It really is a great game for such a small investment! Thank you in advance for putting us over the top!

I guess Kickstarter knows what it's talking about when it says that '90% of projects which hit 30% of their funding will go on to be successfully funded'
