The command rules for CWB/TCS/NBS/RSS are very ambiguous. The argument being that to cover every orders situation in the rules would be opening a can of worms. So the games are no good for competitive play, but they're fun! I usually choose the action which would inconvenience me the most.

For example, if you have an engage order like "Capture town X" and in carrying out the order your units pass a good attack opportunity; Do you bypass the opportunity and continue to the town, or are you allowed to engage some other unit on the way, then continue to the town later? I would say go for the town and miss possibly wrecking an enemy unit.

I'm curious to know what your group did?

Have had tried the first edition of Thunder at the Crossroads when it was just published. I liked the ideas, but I seems to remeber, that the rules were very ambigues, or it was to difficult put everybody to agree on the interpretation and at that time we didn't have Internet...
Have also played GD40 and Leros of the WWII tactical serie from TheGamers, where similar ideas on command were developed.

I think my ideal game would have similar ideas, on a less tactical scale (too much detail otherwise), but with a good emphases on the fog of war.
I thought that Vassal could be a very good mean to manage a fog of wars feature. I seem to have seen some reference in the module list there, but I'm not sure.

Hey Giorgio.

Yeah I've got one of those GBACW games around at home somewhere, Here Come the Rebels I think; Looking forward to giving it a try! Lately been getting into Dean Essig's games, especially his command system.

You tried any of the CWBS series? Love that command system!

Hello there,
I wander if I will be so lucky to find players for face to face in Toowoomba QLD

I know it is like attaking on the 1 to 6 ratio, but who knows

Hi bSmith, I recently have joined the Vassal comunity and look forward to find players in our timezone.

I recently (with Vassal discovery actually) have the passion for the hobby burning again, after at least 10 years.

Have just observed a very tense session of Grant Takes Command, which was enjoyable like reading the real thing.
