I've played it a little.

First, it has zero connection with SMG and hardly any similarity. They are 'single man" counters and it's WW2. Aside from that-- zip.

It is more along the lines of conventional "hex-and-counter" wargames, and uses a Hugo/Igo type of turn. The non-active does get to set out a couple hexes for what amount to opportunity fire, but for the most part sits and watches the opponent move as many bits as he wants to, then they resolve fire and close combat and then it's his turn to do the same.

One item of interest is the combat-- both ranged fire and close combat-- uses a system that compares various abilities or strengths and then BOTH players roll a die. So the guy getting shot at rolls as well as the shooter, and his roll can make a difference in the outcome.

The system came out some time ago, in almost a DTP format, then added small figs to it and then dropped that and came out with the current version, which is about 3 years old. The mapboards remind one of SMG just a bit, in terms of being intense colors, dramatic looking, and thick.

Others who have played the game more should chime in, but that gets you started.

There is more info here:

Lost Battalion still sells the game, plus a "Repple Depple" expansion that has a lot more vehicles and some scenarios.
