Matrix Games has released Strategic Command: World War I today.  Has any one jumped on it yet.

Also, I see that Matrix is offering a bundle on their 3 Strategic Command games, SC: WWII in Europe, SC: WWi, and SC WWII World at War.  The bundle is $56.79 right now, and I'll be getting my anniversary couple in a few days.  So are they a good game.

Here at ACD, we all pee the same color.

I'm guessing that this series would work much better for WWI than it ever did for WWII.
But that's just me... I've got the new WWI: Europe version and it still didn't grab me even with hexes.  :oh:

WarPlan is a better game IMHO.

This series has never appealed to me for some reason I can't put my finger on.

Same here. I thought it was the squares vs hexes thing but the new hex version just doesn't hold my attention either....and the naval model just doesn't work as far as I'm concerned.

The Blue Max 2D Counter and Map Mod really improves the look of the game:

No, I haven't put the proper amount of time into the game yet. I'm also curious to see if any type of stalemate occurs on the Western Front.
