My TAL arrived today. This is my first war game that I have ever purchased and will have played. I have read the rules off the DVG web site now a couple times so I think I am ready to play my first game. I might have some questions as I play. Also after reading the rules I think this game is going to be great and the reason I purchased.

Good luck! I got thrashed pretty badly during my first couple of plays, but I think I have a better idea of strategy and tactics, now. So don't be surprised if you lose initially; you'll get better!

Thanks everyone. I was gone over the weekend but last night when I returned home I was able to open the game and push out the counters, etc. I am very impressed and happy with the quality of the parts and game overall. Nicely done!! Tonight I should be able to start Mission #1 for Iraq 1991 - Surge!

I played my first mission last night of TAL. It was the Iraq 1991/Surge. I used a Harrier and an AH64 on Battalion 3A. Everything was going fine until the very end of the mission. There were only 3 enemy units left on the board worth 3 points total. I needed one more point to destroy the battalion. My Apache had no damage and my Harrier had some major damage. I was in line to attack two of the units with my Apache. I choose to fly my Harrier off the board to get it to safety figuring my Apache would get me the point I needed. I picked a popup marker out of the cup and it was a Chopper! Trouble! So I rolled to place the chopper. Rolled a 9 so it put the chopper in the same Hex as my Apache! Double Trouble! The Chopper attacks me first since I am slow. I draw 3 red counters and major trouble happens! Wounded and CAN'T ATTACK. Since I can't attack anymore I fly off the board as quickly as possible. By not getting that point I only destroyed half the battalion. I draw an end of Mission card and get lucky, it tells me I can pay 3 SO's and destroy any Battalion. I choose a 6VP battalion to destroy so I have 1.5 battalion destroyed (7 VPs) after my first mission. Loving this game but it can turn on you in a hurry!!
