I got pretty interested on this game by taking a look at the map, but still haven't grasped the concept of the VCS system. 

Here are some key features of VCS Salerno...

* Scale is 1 to 3 miles/hex at 2 turns/day.
* Stacking is 3 units per hex. Combat out of a hex is restricted.
* Units mainly regiments and battalions, large units have strength classes which pull a strength chit for combat.
* Typically only one of these units may combat out of a hex along with all smaller battalions.
* Movement and Combat phases with a Reserve Phase for exploit moves of half MA for units which did not move during the Movement Phase.
* CRT for combat keys off the defender's terrain and uses column shifts for extras like air support, combined arms, fortifications, etc.
* Combat results have some mandatory step losses, but also mostly a player's choice on taking step loss or retreating.
* Advances after combat are along the Path of Retreat for non-mech units, but mech units may deviate.
* Support Points are used to allow attacks, entrenching, and various other functions during a turn.
* Supply is traced simply a number of hexes to a road which leads to the source.

Complexity is on the lower end with lots of tension. Plus, if you like Italy... the Russian steppes await in the next volume.  :-)

yeah that game is a long way off. thniking 2014.

I'd suggest just picking one up used if you can find one within reasonable shipping costs.

It's not uncommon, though you'll pay a bit more for the deluxe.

A new John Butterfield Bulge game, with solo scenarios.

Thunder Alley GMT

Newtown GMT

Heights of Courage MMP

The Blitzkrieg Legend MMP

It Never Snows MMP

So mate you own DC and WED too? But still getting the INS from MMP?

No. I didn't buy into DC or WED. I do have GMT's old Air Bridge to Victory. I am interested in the SCS take.

I can't ever remember what's likely.

Or what I've ordered. Always have to look back when

I score a used gem to make certain I'm not pre-ordered for it.

Lock N' Load's 'World at War: America Conquered' - a futuristic game (a la Invasion America?), or GMT's Panzer (a PanzerBlitz +++).

Wolverines!
