This a reboot of the entire system. So the major titles will be complete stand alone games. There maybe expansions to individual stand alone games but David has promised to never again have multiple game requirements for expansions.

Not sure if all the titles will get KS treatment but judging by the success of this one I don't see why not.

Cool. Any idea how many standalones we’re talking about?

Something like 8 planned so far?... Keith was talking about it somewhere that can't recall now.

Storming the Gap (Fulda Gap) and Blood and Bridges (North German plains) are likely the two boxes I'd like to get covering NATO in Europe.

Then, When the Lion Roars for Arab Israeli Wars, because of course  :knuppel2:

And that said, I will not buy any other boxes, and that's it. Or maybe just the Red Lighting as it's set in Nordics. And Strike Force Africa looks intriguing... As does Red Dragon Rises...  :hide:

Oh my dear God... how am I going to explain all this to my wife once she discovers this is just the FIRST of a series...  :peace:

What, you a newly wed?  The same why she explains why she needed to buy another pair of black heeled shoes.  They were on sale!  And their different than the other 4 pair of black heeled shoes that she already has.

Oh I wish this would work. Or, that when you'd go to a gaming session, you'd ask which game to take with you, and she'd replay, actually. After which you'd take the exact opposite, perhaps rolling your eyes at her.

"Do I look fat when playing this game?"

Or is it: "Does my butt look big with this game?"  I need practice with this...

Thanks for the tip, but the only fetish my wife has is for handbags and purses, but she’s been behaving very well lately. See why I am in a danger zone? Oh an no, not a newly wed at all, doesn’t that just make it extra volatile? 🦄
