Lucky old you...I wish I could even find ONE person to plat FTF!!!!
In this case, Space Empires, I actually had to turn down some players :)
Wife's playing SPI's War of the Ring with me.
Couldn't talk her out of it - and given that she liked things like AH's Wizards,
Got The Pacific War back on the table after a 25 year absence.
Bill got me excited about it.
Played the solo Pearl Harbor scenario:
1st battle cycle saw the Nevada and Tennessee sunk, and the Arizona and California take 4 hits. That gave me 4 of the 6 BB needed for the win. I also scored 2 hits on the Pennsylvania and Oklahoma.
The second battle cycle saw a coordinated strike mission get to the target hex before being detected. With the large airbase alerted, there was no longer a chance to win.
Cap over the airbase saw both sides take 2 hits, and the Japanese took another hit on the flak. Unfortunately the 2 air units tasked with striking the airfield could only score 1 hit.
Over the port, the Japanese took a hit from flak. 2 more hits were scored on the Pennsylvania for a total of the needed 4 hits. However the Oklahoma only took 1 hit for a total of 3. The last squadron tried striking the Maryland, but whiffed completely.
Finally tally saw 5 of the needed 6 battleships with 4 hits or more, and only 4 steps of air units lost, 8 short of the needed 12 steps. Bad deal, but good fun.
Cool Jeff! My friend Doug and I are going to play the Guadalcanal Campaign scenario this weekend.
I want to try that beast someday.
Its not a beast. Fantastic game.
Beasts can be good.
I just know that it's going to take months to play.
Had been working on the Axis Empires learning scenarios - now I'm through the first year
of the combined campaign (really really easy without war). Vids uploading.
Back to Fields of Fire. Was a bit burnt out after putting out the video series. Playing through the first Normandy mission again, and got my hat handed to me. In the middle of the re-attempt now.
Just finished a solo scenario in ASL (T16 Strayer's Strays) to learn the concealment rules.
Yes it is nice and short. Germans just edged it. I think I will try the OBA rules tomorrow.
