<t>It seems that Covering Fire shares some mechanics with Arty Conliffe's Crossfire published in the late 90's. Movement terrain to terrain, continuous initiative until some failure like getting suppressed by op fire or failing to suppress with offensive fire. Initiative often did switch sides frequ...

Bill: I am awaiting my Kickstarter order of Oak & Iron. The last update had the US orders landed passed customs and on the way to the warehouse. Good news indeed.

Well done review. For now I'll stick with Hewwar's games in mobile format. I enjoyed their Peninsular War title for mobile.

<t>I too have recently been digging through some of my old SPI games. I found one disadvantage to the flat counter tray style box that SPI was known for; The glue dries up on the cardboard backing on the counter tray and it comes right off. Wonder how much Noble Knight deducts for that?<br/> <br/> N...

<r>If you do a list for the desktop publishing crowd I would recommend adding "The Perfect Captain" although the artwork on the rules, cards and counters of the various games could well be professionally done. A variety of rules for different periods are available (my favorites are Hoplomachia (Pelo...

<t>Bill I am waiting for this one to go EA on Steam before jumping in. Since I have actually played with miniature ships on the real Olympia my preference is for the early end of the timeline. The part for Pre-Dreads and Dreadnoughts as the title suggests. If you peruse the Game Labs forum you'll fi...

Excellent review. I have not had a chance to play yet but will soon. I did play a game of ESR this past weekend, giving a much more operational level feel to a Napoleonics game than BM though.

<t>Thanks for the shout out Bill. Very nice write up. Little did I know I would have to sprint to the dealer hall as soon as I got to the convention to pick up the "Bataille Empire" rules! Of course at the time I hadn't pulled out my compass and map to figure out where it was located. As it turned o...

Bill - Bataille Empire is available now and I believe On Military Matters has it. Will find out in a few days at Fall In.

That bomber game is reminiscent of the old AH B-17 game.

<t>Excellent commentary Colonel. I at one time spent time in a Btn TOC in Germany (As HHC XO I had responsibility to set it up). Now you have me wondering why they couldn't have used the real 1:50,000 maps in the game!!<br/> <br/> Another thought I had was for the modern warfare this may not work be...
