C3 - Less than 60 miles (TRL Games)
« on: September 26, 2018, 05:34:11 AM »
A new game in development over at Thin Red Line Games (1985: Under an Iron Sky).

From the site:
"Taking its roots from SPIís Central Front and NATO: Division Commander, Less Than 60 Miles is the first of an operational simulation series focused on Command, Control and Communication.

All the elements of modern, mechanized warfare are covered: Chemical and Nuclear Weapons, Attack Helicopters, Engineers, Electronic Warfare, Counter-battery Fire, Ribbon Bridges, Army Doctrines, Reconnaissance units, Close Air Support coordination, and more.

In Less Than 60 Miles, both sides must deal with three equally dangerous foes: the enemy, their own plan and time.
Players must handle the deceptively simple problems typically faced by Corps and Division commanders: move from point A to point B without messing up, organize a river crossing, properly deploy the troops for combat before the enemy starts to blow them in pieces.

Moreover, this is (hopefully) the first module of the C3 Series, covering the whole NATO Ė Warsaw Pact conflict in Central Europe. Yes, the idea is to have the whole Central Front playable in a gigantic, unmanageable, mind-blowing campaign."

I'll just tell my wife now that we can't go on vacation next year...that should save enough for this.  :bd:

Their real names are Stuhldreher, Miller, Crowley and Layden."   Grantland Rice, New York Herald Tribune, October 18th, 1924.

It's only slated for 800-ish copies the first run, so if you want it you'll be doing yourself a favour by logging into the BoardGameGeek forums for the game and reply to this thread that you'd like to reserve a copy.
It turned out it was very much needed with their 1985 game. :)
