I have a copy of the first edition of this game, made by OSG, which I bought from someone on ebay and I plan to play it soon.

It has the original OSG rule book, but it also has an original AH rule book from the second edition.

The help I need is whether or not there is any difference between 1st and 2nd edition rules. The second edition would be more preferable to read as it is indexed which helps greatly.

After a few brief looks at the two rule books, I cannot see anything specific, but there maybe something more significant in the detail.

For those that are interested there is a game on the Western Front by the same game designer using essentially the same game system.  The game is Toppling the Reich by Against the Odds.  I really like this game system. Very subtle strategies need to be employed by the attacker and defender to be successful.

No problem Roger.  It has been awhile since I played the OSG version, but I do recall the rules to the AH/COSI version "cleared" things up. I think this is a great game.  Many people play using the AH/COSI counters, OSG map and the AH/COSI rules.  Do you play using VASSAL or CYBERBOARD?  I would be willing to play.  Let me know. Thanks.

Thank you Jerry - your input has be valuable, and I will take your advice on this

I have played the OSG, AH and COSI version of this game.  FYI- there are major changes/clarifications between the OSG and the AH/COSI version.  I suggest you use the AH/COSI rules which are very similar, but markedly different from the OSG version.  The AH/COSI rules can be used with the OSG map and counters.  I believe the charts are the same.

Hi John.

I have thrown the question at BGG and on the CSW Forum, so I will see what happens. I will also have a look at Grognards and see. I am not sure about AH version having smaller hex grid, as mine is the OSG version, just with two rule sets...bleh

Great game. If you don't find your answer on BGG, throw out the question on CSW Forum as well. I don't know if Web Grognards has a file that discusses this. Is it correct that the AH version has a smaller hexgrid?

Comment by Roger Morley on November 13, 2013 at 7:20am

I have given it a go. Just have to wait and see if anyone answers it.

Does BGG indicate if there are differences? Probably a good place to Post. I think it was pretty much a reprint so should not differ greatly. Here's a link for CSW Forum....the initial posting asks about differences between versions: http://talk.consimworld.com/WebX?14@@.ee6fd85/0
