Right now, I'm developing The First Battle of the Marne
, Jon Compton's game on the decisive battle of World War I in the West in 1914. It's not destined for Against the Odds
, but for the Turning Point Simulations
As are the rest of the games in the product line, the game is physically small, with an 11" x 17" map and under 200 counters, and right now just eight pages of rules. As one would expect, it's systemically fairly simple, and playing time promises to be short. That is all in keeping with the specifications for TPS's games.
Does anyone want to be present at the creation, through volunteering to playtest The First Battle of the Marne
? We have some good playtesters now, but preexisting commitments and that nagging matter of real life means that we need some additional players too.
If you'd like to join the fun, please send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll e-mail you a copy of the game so we can get started. We need your help, and will certainly appreciate it.
