Don't they have an Aegis-equipped vessel named Kongo as well? Rebooting the 'Yamato' can't be far off.

Computer Wargaming / Age of Rivals
« Last post by DennisS on Today at 08:25:06 AM »
OK...I don't often come to the board and shill for a game, but here, I'm going to make an exception.

Age of Rivals, collectible card game on Steam, for $9.99.

No more purchases after the initial one, you get the complete game.

Initially, about 100 cards are unlocked, and as you play, you will unlock about 200 more.

Strategy game, with a strong military theme. The synergies and interactions between the cards are just ... brilliant. There are very real choices to be made, on each turn.

Your deck has 16 cards, and only 8 can be used in each of the four turns.

I have a ton of excellent games to play, including Cities Skylines, Automation, and Ultimate General: Civil War...but I keep going back to this one.

You can play the AI, normal and hard, or online. You gain points per win, or doing achievements, enough points will get you a new deck of three cards to flip over.

Great game, great mechanics, and I just cannot recommend this highly enough. 93% positive rating on Steam.

I am waiting for the Germans to send money to the US for their NATO dues.....its going to be bigly

there are no dues  :buck2:
the 'missing NATO spending money" was spend into fight against IS (including Stan activities and Syria), UN-peacekeeping missions (IIRC its former Yugoslavia and parts of shithole Africa) and 'European commanded' missions (against high sea Piracy 4 example) and (free) support in the logistics chain ...all to take the pressure from and to free US assets around the globe to fight (their) wars...

Not to speak of (more open then) secret money donated to bolster Israel defenses (a fleet of 6 of our latest subs and two as a donation, or 1/3 of every boat.... in Israel those get converted to launch cruise missile with 'we not speak about' warhead capabilities)   

The money is in the book of general NATO global security politics but not in the one single line of the to summing up spreadsheet President Trump was studying
 
Irony. It's not just a bigly metal thing. 😬

I coveted the hard back manual - so I just bought it on Amazon.

I got a review copy.  But because I did not get the review done I felt guilty and bought it.  Christian guilt strikes again!

Does the physical copy include a Steam key?

BFC always responds with activations, but just got tired of doing the dance with the helpdesk.  The DRM finally wore me down.  Did the same thing with the CMFI 3.0 update. 

I really wished BFC would have stuck with the promise to add an activation every year of ownership.  Would have me and BFC some headache.

^ Sōryū-class submarine

Soryu-class... they sure aren't shy anymore about reminding certain folks that not so long ago Japan had a navy capable of going toe-to-toe with all comers.

And the new "helicopter destroyer" is named Kaga.
