Hi all!

I am posting this in the forum of all OCS games to involve everyone. You only have to vote in one place (it's the same collective poll).

I am not about to design a game of my own (not right now anyway), but I hope that the result of this poll might serve as an inspiration to all game designers out there.

I have limited the suggestion to the time period that OCS was designed for (1900-1950). Feel free to discuss & comment on the titles and suggest new ones that I didn't think of.


Poll
How does these imaginary OCS titles sound to you?
  Great! Why hasn't it been done already? I think this could become a good game. Not sure, I would need to be convinced. No. Definitely not. Go to bed!
OCS: Northern Finland. A map stretching from northern Norway/Sweden all the way to Murmansk.
OCS: The Channel. A map of both the English and French channel coast. Could simulate both Overlord and Sea Lion.
OCS: Manchuria 1945. Soviet invasion of the Japanese puppet state.
OCS: West Front 1944. All the way from Overlord to Berlin.
OCS: Army Group North. Leningrad & the Fins.
OCS: Bagration. Perhaps linking with Baltic Gap
OCS: Poland 1939.
OCS: Eastern Africa. 1935-1941
OCS: China 1937. Second Sino-Japanese war.
OCS: Japan 1945. "What if" game. US invasion of Japan.
OCS: WW1 Western Front. Lots of trenches and artillery.
OCS: WW1 Eastern Front. A real monster. Open mobile warfare.
OCS: WW1 Middle East. Mountains, camels and a guy called Lawrence.

Of course, Beyond the Rhine is already well underway. It doesn't cover Overlord, but that's not a bad thing.

Is northern Finland meant to cover '41 through '44? Only '44? '39/40?

Let your imagination decide! I think it would be cool to have several scenarios between 41-44, but no grand campaign (too much sittin' around doing nothing).
