Yes, and...?   ;)

The map for that Bulge game reminds me somewhat of SPI's Wacht am Rhein from back in the 70"s I think.  Sadly, the days of setting up those monster games on my pool table and playing them are long gone.

Edit - And FWIW I think Dean Essig is one of the best wargame designers of all time.  Wish I still had the time to play his games.  Sorry for continuing to move this thread off topic.

A) This is a computer wargaming forum
B) We are talking about...fancy that...a computer wargame

Boradgamers are the vegans and crossfit of the gaming world.  Always want everyone to know they play boardgames and turn every conversation to crossfit boardgames

You do know that the guy who does most of the work running this site is a boardgamer, don't you?

Not really a concern of mine in regards to this thread in a computer warging forum.  I play boardgames a lot too.  Still have an ASL set up in my basement.  But there are people who are obsessed with boardgaming that are on a crusade to convert computer games to boardgames.  They find every opportunity to come into discussions about computer wargames and try to get people to play boardgames.

If there should be no distinction between board and computer games, merge the forums.

'Cause this is the first time someone made an off-topic comment in one of our threads...

Someone made a gaming suggestion and it happens to not be something that interests you, Ryan. Get over it. No reason to pile on the guy and no reason to restructure our forums either.

Move on.

I didn't pile on.  I asked a simple question.  Check the answer and then another comment.  If the answer had been "oh yeah, its a tactical boardgame about Tunisia like ASL", well then OK.  But the answer was basically, yeah, what of it.  I replied to answer what of it.  I didn't just go on some rant.  I responded to a couple responses.

His quote was Yes, and?  I assume he was expecting me to respond.  Is that piling on?

My comment wasn't a solicitation for a response or a debate. It was a invitation for you to shut your mouth, for once.

Thanks. Back on topic.

I like bagels more than turtles.  But only with cream cheese.

For anyone confused with the interface (which I admit I am though I also admit I probably didn't give it much time to settle in), there's some handy stuff at Dogs of War (link courtesy of Asid)

You may find it interesting and/or helpful.

 I do love these graviteam  Games and I have been playing them for years. Still haven't figured out the interface completely. Mainly because the manual – such as it is – is about usless

Nevertheless, sit down and invest some time in it and you will be rewarded. I can't go back to CM
