It's actually better than a boardgame because the computer will keep enemy units within the Fog of War areas hidden.  And if you're like me you'll forget where they are until you run into them.   :hide:

I look forward to playing this. I like to hotseat both sides and play it like a board game.  :bd:

This is very intriguing. How does one go about this?

Thanks

Click on Hotseat to start a game.  Enter an Axis password and play the Axis turn.  End the turn and it will ask for an Allied password.  Play the Allied turn.  Rinse and repeat.

Ordered Lion and Eagle, and also the Tarawa invasion game.  :smitten:
I have the Tarawa game and like it, but you do have to figure out how the UI works a bit too much on your own. Also have the D-day at Omaha which I really would like to play more, but it still has bugs that makes it near impossible to win. Which is too bad, because I really like the game mechanics of that series. I wonder if they will make PC versions of Peleliu and Iwo Jima that exist as boardgames?

Still, much like The Division, I come back to this when I just want some kind of nice "murder hobo," thing where I just ramble around and shoot baddies.
Which is probably where most of my hours were sunk into it. I initially hit the game hard...then, like The Division before it and Far Cry after it, the gameplay didn't entice me in.

Coming back to it was always fun for short bursts - and it's still installed (as is The Division).

Busy real life weekend. Saturday is the 21st annual family Christmas cookie party. Not a cookie exchange. We invite friends over to my daughter's house (she is in charge of the shindig) to decorate a variety of cookies. Food, fun and fellowship. Good times. Sunday is off to see my son in "Seasonal Allergies" a holiday themed comedy at the local playhouse.

Might get a little gaming in here and there but nothing too heavy.

I think i will play some Stellaris. Started a new game with 2.2 and slowly growing while learning the new planet management system. It's a fairly slow game but that's ok. I am building up my third colony and will see how this affects migration. Curious, one of my AI empires proposed a non-agression pact (which i accepted) and i still have no idea how i can propose one....

I think i will also continue my Gengis Khan campaign in Oriental Empires (still very early).

And then, i'll have a look at my very large library of games and might play something else afterwards.

Pike & Shot: Campaigns, the Gustavus Adolphus campaign. Because I am feeling fancy.

Since the release scenarios aren't listed there, there is no 'formal' feedback mechanism and the private stuff gets the benefit of public discussion (and the designer of course, the satisfaction of reading it).
Good point. The internal scenarios have been played multiple times with internal feedback but you are spot on about the comments on the Scenario Depot. There is another source - the Blitz - over there the scenario list includes the stock scenarios and they encourage people to comment on scenarios that they play.

With regards to early contact, player preferences vary as much as designer choices, meaning some people will be predisposed not to like whatever choice you make - that's not a bad thing, just reflect our tastes do vary.
Very true.
