In the situation above the Germans have just attacked and the outcome is only CA. If the Russians choose to CA, do they attack all of the German units (5 - 11, which is 1:2)at once or can they attack one unit at a time?

If they choose to counter attack, they have to attack all the attacking German at once.

if you CHOSE to counterattack, you MUST attack every unit, which was involved in the attack, which caused the CA result.

I really like this aspect! this way the CA result is an option, which you really should think about taking or leaving! - creates more depth but also makes the game slightly more complicated

Man, I really can not wait to see the No Retreat "light"!

Well, all those were attacking the defender, so you must engage them all. You DO have a choice of doing it or not. Do not forget that the attackers have the same limitations: when they attack a hex, they must attack all the defenders stacked inside in one attack.

Me too!

The map and game system is done. Next is the Counters in proper Adobe Illustrator, and the event cards.

I have a title for this "Simple No retreat!" Game:

CCCP!
(The Russo-German War: 1941-44)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CCCP

sorry carl, but I dont like your title.

It's like calling a game about the first War in Iraq "USA (the US-Iraqi War)"

It just doesn't fit well and makes you think, that CCCP was just about killing Nazis to save the world. We all know, it was much more!

Too bad, as I like it.

But I do have another possible title.

Hi Tommi,
by the way... the CA results in a 1:3, not 1:2. ;-)

Best,
Peter

Yes.

Using their "Gold Standard" production. So You can have a box, too. Laser-cut counters, full-sized event cards, and perhaps even something else extra...

Hi Carl,

Shame both can't be combined into deluxe version so you have Simple/Beginners version and Full/Advanced version in the same box.

Regards

This would be difficult.

They are not using the same map or event cards or counters: there will be some important changes, so it's two very different games, even if using the same "design philosophy". One uses hexes, the other semi-areas!

VPG will probably phase-out their first version of NR! when the new "Simple No Retreat!" comes out.

What about:

No Mercy!
(The Russo-German War: 1941-44)

I will keep the "CCCP!" title for a solitaire game I will do next year about the Cold War Arms Race (where the gamer plays the Soviet Union, of course)

Still not sure, why you would ever use the CCCP Title for a game remotely related with a country - but also with a lot else... But it may just be me...

But let me say this: No Mercy! is a genious title! It fits perfectly with No Retreat! while being different, yet provides the same look and feel. This is what I also expect the game to be!

My Editior did not like "CCCP!" either for that game. But for a solitaire "Cold War" title it should be fine.

I'm learning this game at the moment and it totally kicks it. I love the combat system. Vaguely reminds me of ASL where being off-turn does not mean you are without some bite.
