Other than the scale, then no, not really. You could also try and compare it with ASL, OST or any other tactical level game. It has significant differences.

Link to rulebook.

He's just clarified...it was yes, the scale, but also the scenario you were playing - it looked very similar to the first scenario in Conflict of Heroes

He's put it on his list of desires

I'm sure he won't be disappointed, should he feel the need to satisfy his desire.

Just a note. If I were to make a comparison with any other tac level game, then I would say that it reminds me of some aspects of OST, but is very dissimilar to CoH.

It really is a unique system though, and stands on its own feet without really attempting to copy any other system. The method of selecting forces alone make this worth getting as it really extends the playablity of the game more than any other similar game of the scale that I have ever played.

Was it? Well, stones the crows, we never would have guess. You had us all totally fooled........................ ::)

If your mate, you have any questions when you start playing, just ask, I'm sort of pretty competent with it now.  ;)

You're going to have fun getting this home without the missus noticing it - its a huge box :-)

Also, you may well have to sell off some of your collection in order to make room for it  ;D

"You have a large box from what looks like Germany..."

Also, I have space

Is there an online manual bob? I can't find one on the developer's website.

I (now - after your suggestion I think when saying how bad my Holland '44 manual was getting) like to print manuals out and use those. The only one I can find is on BGG but the graphics in the manual are horribly low res.

Thanks pal. Where was that buried? I was on the Red Horizon game page and the drop down for the rule book had options for feedback, eratta and online version

NM - I saw it was under the Online version for downloading PDF.

Cheers ears
