I wasn't really expecting any of those to do it for you, but it did pretty much confirm that what you're looking for is what started this in the first place :)

Random acts of genius and other inspirations of applied violence.

In all honesty, I reckon as I was a single man counter game and a modern one, I'm probably going to pick up Combat! when it's released. I have to if that's specifically what I'm looking for - which I am.

Combat! is re-leased already. It's single man counter and solo only as well.
There was a production problem where the back of the infantry counters got mixed, so a counter would be US on the front and German on the back. They have since printed new counter sheets so make sure what you buy has the new sheets.

Also - it's worth noting that charging £135 for a game and screwing up the counters is shocking. I hope people got free replacements?

Thanks - but again - they're all so old looking. I just don't think I could get into them.

Aren't we all, to an extent? :)

I get it, trust me...but some games stand the test of time rather well. Hate for you to totally discount them if you happen across a copy for a price better than 135 quid.  :D

I'm sure we did a forum game of 'Patrol' over at 'The Other Place'.

Oh yep - I remember that because I got bumped off fairly quickly as I recall.

All part of his evil plan, no doubt.
