You wanted a Vietnam KS? Say no more, fam:



Watch, and observe the confusion and misdirected orders that happen, even in a single-player computer game where you're limited in what you can actually order. I also like how they've incorporated more kinds of decision making beyond move/fire. And no map automation, you have to place the pieces correctly yourself.

I actually don't really like games.

Isn't that cheating?

Being able to Google shit better than your clients is a legit career skill.

Hey fellas,

Just to throw something in: I am intrigued now for a while with the British Army Tactical Wargame https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/36368/british-army-tactical-wargame-1956

Also Interesting: https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/641040/doctrine_uk_wargaming_handbook.pdf

Something more contemporary, but comes along with interesting manuals on wargaming ORBATS and SOPs: https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/455022/1996_AFM_Vol_2_Gen_En_Mob_Pt_1_Op_Art_Tac_Doc.pdf

Just leaving this out there for those who are interested.

Cheers,

A

Note for future operational/strategic games: I think we're being far too liberal in allowing messengers between corps commanders. Everything I'm reading indicates this didn't happen. Messengers went between corps commanders and GHQ except in extreme circumstances.

I actually don't really like games.

Corps commanders should definitely not be sending couriers to corps commanders on the other side of the map.

Exactly. They likely have no idea where they even are.

Hey all,

Was just checking in to see if the Spiel is still going. Didn't get a msg for a few weeks, but that's fine, haven't replied for a turn either since I didn't have anything to change.

Just letting you know that I took this as a reason to start my own KS. I am currently umpiring an 11 Player Game Cold War gone hot, with less than 60 miles as a basis, although I heavily modified the rules and produced about 10 pages to read for my players.

Cheers,

AM

Yes, both are very much still going on. I know Jim just updated a couple of days ago.

Just advanced the clock again this evening.

It is absolutely the case that much time can pass in marching, &c.

If you EVER want a SitRep as to where you are at a given time, &c.,  just fire off an email and Control will hear and respond!!!
