I was thinking about getting into Europe Engulfed and was wondering if the FAB two might be a good intro to the Engulfed two. Any thoughts?

There are significant differences between the two games. The FAB series does more with the block system (troop quality) and has the nifty event/asset chits. Europe Engulfed doesn't have these, but there's a lot more weight in terms of political rules and production, as well as a system for strategic warfare (bombing and U-boats). There's also more going on with the Special Actions in Europe Engulfed. (Amphib assaults, breakthrough movement, etc.)

I guess I'd say there are obvious similarities; if you like one you'll probably like the other. But learning one may not make it much easier to learn the other.
