A new addition to the CC system from Hexasim

https://www.hexasim.com/en/2700-Great-War-Commander-British-Expeditionary-Force.html

Quite tempting, although you do need the base game. Unfortunately, its not really suitable for solo play.

It does look interesting. And just about any game can be made suitable for solo play.  8)

I think most of us have that part covered.

I can't comment on that one right now. My other personalities are still arguing the point.  :silly:

Hexasim do make very good games, and the quality of the components is excellent. Again, I'm not a fan of the CC game itself, but I do like this iteration of the system.

Most WWI tanks cannot run off and leave the infantry, so they may play ok in the Combat Commander system.
