343 5/30/2022 4:45:00 PM Turn 1 AP Message I think the game is a bit underdeveloped. It suffers from trying to do too much with too few rules, and the rules that are there I think are a little clunky. The time aspect is cool but it also comes off as a bit too fiddly and gamey. Do ships really sink if they late from an operation? It seems like some things could have been simplified. The system works best at the operational level.

Are there any games on your self that you are looking to get into? If we try Vietnam, Id like to do a short scenario to make sure we have the rules down and then try the campaign game just to get the full flavor of the system, which is the best part of the game. The one issue with VG Vietnam is that its better suited to live play since there is a lot of reaction and so forth. Its kind of a game of whack a mole for the US and a race against time to clear out the Communists and then hold on to the finish. So its a long game.

Im open to anything really...


342 5/30/2022 3:33:00 PM Turn 1 JP Message Posted. I would deactivate my units this turn so that effectively ends my op and i have no more command points.

I agree that the game works better live, the mechanics are fairly simple and would flow very quickly live i think. I like the game but I was expecting something else (not sure what). I struggled to manage the tempo of operations as you can see from my last Op, I needed more time. Maybe the game is telling you to activate less units for more time.

Should we just take the plunge and got for Vietnam?

339 5/30/2022 7:39:00 AM Turn 1 AP Message How are you liking the game?

For me its a bit tedious, I think the game plays much better live, which would allow the players to get into more of a flow. I can see how players much prefer EotS, tho I think face to face PW might be right up there with that game.

288 5/27/2022 3:48:00 PM Turn 1 JP Message From 24.2:
The target player is obliged to reveal no more about his
situation in the target hex than is required by the Search result called
for by the chart.

Since it says target hex, i think thats how that is applied.

TF3: 1 non capital ship. No carriers
287 5/27/2022 2:04:00 PM Turn 1 AP Message The rules have too many gaps for me to be sure, but im in favor of simplicity so yea, well play that a successful search encompasses all TFs in a hex
286 5/27/2022 11:35:00 AM Turn 1 JP Message I think searches are a per hex thing so when you detected TF2 i think you also detect TF3 since they are in the same hex. Let me know if this is correct so I reveal details on TF3.

TF2 blue recon:
2 capital ships + 2 non capital ships. Carriers are present.
