Smile My Two Cents

I know that these message boards have been active with a lot of questions lately. I'd just like to take a moment to put everything in perspective--to get past the "why'd you do this," and "this must be a bug" routine it seems to have slipped into. Sometimes we wargamers can be a demanding lot--we dont' take time to smell the roses. Well, I've been wargaming for a long time--since 1973 as a matter of fact. I've learned over the years that the difference between a good and a great game lies in the ability of the designer to evoke two emotions--tension and uncertainty. This game brings out both in me--I whince when I see Japanese dive bombers head for my carriers and curse at myself when one more base falls to the SNLF while my carriers are off "Doolittling" the Home Islands instead of defending their own. This game is a gem; a fascinating, accessible simulation of the Great Pacific War and I thank the designer for his efforts. I'm about to boot up my 12th game, and may I say, I'm having a blast!

I agree: I'm having great fun with this game.

I think most of us just want to make sure the game is working as it is supposed to. A few things also needed clarification.

Great points, and I am enjoying the game very much. There are vry few bugs found so far, and those bugs dont impact the game all that much. So all in all it seems as if the developer did a really good job.

However pointing out the bugs is necessary in order for them to get fixed,...and bugs in a strategy game tend to affect the strategy used.

Finally, wargamers ALWAYS ask a lot of mechanics question. Knowing how something works can REALLY affect strategy.

Honestly I have yet to see anyone be anything other than respectful, and believe me THAT is the biggest surprise of all.

I think the game is very well balanced for a title that can be played in one sitting if required. This alone makes it hard to compare to other war games.

The fact that it seems to have no major bugs on release makes it a real good plus as well.

This is one that will remain on my HD for a long while.

Cheers MarkL

Now that I've buttered you up--how about a little excursion to the Mediterranean--say during WW2? LOL. This system would be great for that theater. How about it?
