Less going to work and more playing.

I only have to wait until Monday for my yearly discount coupon.

He might change my mind. God forbid content on ACD convinces me to buy a game.  ::)

Nice review.  :bigthumb:

I played the original hexy Strategic Command quite a bit back when Karens still ruled the Interwebzies but the later tile games seemed a bit clunky with their macro-style units and terrain occasionally forced into more micro-style battles such as Market-Garden.

Thanks for the write-up, bbmike!  I'd already had my eye out for this one, and your article doesn't lessen my wanting to get it.  :) 




Mike, any input on the naval portion of the game.

I'm curious about this as well.

GOG currently has the game on sale for 25% off, so I went ahead and picked it up.  May try and play it this weekend, if I can find a few nanoseconds free in which to do so.
