I hhave tried the others. I found 3rd reich to be to much in the rules department and map to simple with bland counters. Wif was just too much of everything. I prefered eto and pto seems to be a good cross etween too much and too little. Though after reding the rules for ewr, I am looking forward to trying it.

LEt us know how it works out. The map for the cyberboard game looks real good while the one with the ADC2 module looks bad in my opinion.

I am collaborating with another player to upgrade the rules set and forces to be able to play the 2nd edition on the Cyberboard map (the Japanese one).

Dan, you have to purchase the ADC2 program from HPS Simulations for about $50.00. Then, at least for DG stuff, you have to purchsae the game set from DG. The ETO set is $25. Its on the DG site. ADC2 is not being supported by HPS anymore if I am correct so it may be a dying program.

Don't you need to purchase both ADC2 and the ETO module separately? Is it worth it? Can you play ETO second edition on this?

I haven't played ETO, but I've good things about it. Our group have been playing World in Flames for 15 years on and off, and we find it to be a fun game. The trick with WiF though is to play as close to the classic edition as you can, and choose only the bare minimum of options.

However my favourite game of all time is EastFront II, and I am very keen to play Eurofront II. I just love the fog of war provided by the blocks, and I spend more time thinking about strategy, rather than having physically manage stacks of cardboard counters to get that last factor for a 5:1 attack...

You can get the ETO ADC2 set from DG, although it does cost about $25.00. The 1st edition from TSR is available for nothing for cyberboard although I don't have the rules for that version. I am currently playing the 2nd edition from TSR with a buddy. The map is kinda ugly though in the ADC2 version.

Will we ever be able to play ETO online or by Email?

I have been playing Empires of Apocalypse by UGG using ADC2. It is a combination of Cold Days in Hell, Morsecode, and Triumph and Fall of the Desert Fox. It covers the eto but also has a Pacific game also. It is similiar to Russian Front by AH, but covers the entire war. It is fun but the rules have some holes in them.

I ordered CWiE II yesterday. After playing the demo I was hooked. This looks to be a good way to use the computer to play a board game. It handles and enforces rules but the game play is still much like the board game. I cannot wait to get into it.
