Hello! I am thinking of buy this second edition of CoH and I read about a solitaire module with some cards and rules for some firefight, do you know something more or can give a review about that?

Thank you!

I only can say that i met Uwe at Spiel in Essen and he gave me a short overview of the upcoming Solitaire-Module - he had a handmade prototype with him. Looks very promising and interessting, from what i understood it has elements like in "Ambush" (special events happening) and a AI-Action/Reaction-System similar to that in "D-Day at Omaha Beach". It is planned to be released in February.

Definitely looking forward to it!

Me too, I'll save my money for the base game and the solitaire module. Hope for a preview of it soon

We are finalizing the card probabilities and are laying out the rules. Dave and I played another game last night, tightening up the deviousness of the Soviet AI!! (Yes, we play solo games with two people so that we can discuss AI tactics, etc. Ohhhh... this is a fun one.

Dave is laying out the story boards for 3 of the firefights. The expansion will have you playing the Germans against the Soviet AI. After we get player feedback, we plan on creating a German AI card deck, firefight maps and story boards. The nice thing about this module is that it allows players to create their own solo firefights. I would like to then offer these to other players for free on our website.

All this and the brilliance of John Butterfield behind it? I am so glad I pre-ordered the second edition!

Agreed - I'm also glad they went with the Soviet AI deck first as my preferred playing side are the Germans.
