OK, I couldn't resist any more, it just looks so interesting.

Game ordered.
HA! You caved before me  :2funny:

I thought I'd better get in quick in case its the only copy he has (which I doubt) and also I though I would save you from yourself since you have a cart load of games heading your way. I would hate to see you suffer from games overload :-)
That's ma thang though. I'm at piece with it.

You know...when I was a kid, my brother and I were military mad. We'd watch all the films with my dad. At some point we wanted a board game...this in fact...

What we got was this
https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/2598/tank-battle

Which actually was better

But anyway - We'd have been 8. We didn't get much into board games. I eventually got the chance back in the early 90's when I bought a few TSR games and - Pacific Theatre. Yep - that MASSIVE Pacific Theatre game. As you can see, I had no idea of what I was looking for or what was suitable.

Now that I've found my lost love of board gaming, I'm making the most of it.

I've got to be honest - the combat mechanics looked rather in depth. I'm not a massive fan of "odds" based combat anyway - which I have just recently had to deal with in Mrs Thatcher's War. I can do them...I'm just not a huge fan - never did like math

Not that I'm still not considering it...I'm still watching videos

I think I've watched all the videos, and started to listen to the playthroughs, until I realised that most of 'em are in German :-)

My copy may arrive tomorrow or Saturday I hope.

It really is a very interesting game, and has first class components.
