Could do. Some caveats though. They're fairly weighty games; not actually that complex to play, but the strategies and situations that come up can be difficult to grasp at first. They're all four-player, with two of them (Fire in the Lake, Liberty or Death) having four factions that line up more or less neatly into two sides, so they play two-player as well. I don't think they're a great entry point because the added focus on conventional warfare seems to have created enough complexity to be a significant stumbling block for some players. Take a look at a rulebook/playbook for any of them and see what you think. If you're totally baffled, it's too early for you. If you still fancy it, we'll see about a game. There is a forthcoming two-faction game coming out, Colonial Twilight, which looks to be simpler and lighter than the average COIN and may very well be a better intro simply because of the lower number of possible interactions.I noticed that OBollocks has a fairly healthy wargaming collection, and a number of PTers have expressed an interest in the COIN system. Is there interest amongst PTers - OBollocks - in particular in running a game via VASSAL? Would a COIN title be a suitable choice?
