Thanks to charlescab over at the Conflict of Heroes board that suggested this game when I posted there asking for help in finding a wargame that my non-gaming dad would like (http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/795240/looking-for-a-wargame...), I just purchased a copy of Frontline General: Spearpoint 1943. I'm really excited to try it out and I have high hope that he'll like it very much.

I guess we'll start with a standard game and the two balanced suggested decks and see where it goes from there.

It's funny because I've seen many posts about dads loving to play this game with their 10 years old son.
In this case it's gonna be a 28 years old son playing with his 56 years old dad. laugh

In a close assault, if the attack succeeds, do you also add the damage index of the assaulting units or just sum up the three intensity dice.

Also, if you CA with more than 3 infantry you sum up all their dice? Not just three of them?

Thanks.

If the attack succeeds, you add 1D10 die for each attacking infantry unit. So if you use 4 infantry to close assault, add up 4D10. If you use 3, 3D10. Don't add the damage index of each unit's weapons since they're using improvised means to attack (grenades, sticky bombs, etc.) and those weapons are not listed on the Unit cards.
