Welcome All Who Are Interested

No, this Group is not just for Marines, whether active duty, reserve, veterans, or retired, who play games or are otherwise interested in maneuver warfare as the U.S. Marine Corps characterizes it.  Indeed, we hope to connect Marines who wargame to the larger wargaming community through this venue.

New game out on small unit infantry combat in the Central Highlands of Vietnam--yes, it's all U.S. Army but one hopes for an ARVN and Marine Corps expansion someday!  Gorgeous game, not too expensive, and relatively easy to learn/play:

Brilliant, Eric; Semper Fi & thanks for sharing.  We might owe as much to Jim Lacey as we do to Rob't Work, et al. for this salutary development.  Helps me at ONI, too, where I'm developing a training course on S&TI analysis that will incorporate two sim-based exercises.

Wayne, the closest there is would be DAYS OF HEROES by Lock 'N Load about Somalia--and that was 24 years ago.  So we'll have to keep waiting for something more contemporary!

Eric, I am wondering if there are any games currently in print or in planning that would take the ASL experience into the modern age, meaning NOW, not 1980s Europe? In fact an MBT style game would be great too.

You may also be interested in a related group here, "Maneuver Warfare."

Am also trying to compile a master list of maneuver warfare resources/portals.  Currently I show Maneuverist.org website, but the "Resources" page has been emptied of the many articles that were posted there.  Still, the "Forums" page has much of interest.  See URL:  http://www.themaneuverist.org/ . . . you'll need to register for access.
