Saturday Night Fights! A Trio of “CrossFire” One-Hour Challenges on 7/23

It’s a couple of speed runs through some small-sided Crossfire battles in WW2.

I liked it a lot better than Chain of Command. You may want to give it another try, as I think there were some things missed or not understood when you gave it a try.

Here at ACD, we all pee the same color.

Yeah, I watched their second session and a big one was not ending initiative on only a pin but needing a suppress instead. That would have made a difference.
But also my not being quite so plastered before playing might help too.  :whistle:

I to want to compare it to CoC although I don't think its a very fair comparison. I think both games are definitely trying to do different things, besides the scale differences. I too want to try it with better understanding of the rules in regards to the initiative switching as I think that would have changed quite a bit in my first game.

I can't speak to the drinking bit, but you're dead right about the initiative-switching part.

To me, it's not a replacement for CoC -- which I still very much like and has brilliant levels of support -- but just great fun in its own right.
