Now this will be an interesting game to try out, at this present moment in time, with me re-training myself into wargaming, the complexity level of this game sounds perfect.
I have just finished turn 3 of Arnhem, and find myself shuffling pages back and fore checking and double checking the rules for some situations, but so far I am learning and handling the rules so far without too much trouble....lol

Mind you it is one of the Classic, and I dare say simple games, may be you will be disappointed about the (lack of) complexity of this game, in my opinion just a little above Stalingrad and Afrika Korps.

I do think it is a good/fun game though.

The CRT results I used as the example were from an 1-1 attack. Remember the 3-1 magic attack ? You could still loose some units, but you would certainly get the position, with the engaged result you would be stuck in that combat untill the next turn

Typical AH CRT would have results like D elim, Exchange, D back 2, A back2, A elim and A elim, Bulge introduced the Engaged result, normally in place of an Exchange result on the CRT. That result locked the units involved in the attack in combat, from turn to turn. You could even reinforce the attack/defense with new units, IIRC, it's been more than 30 years !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

As the Germans were in a hurry, this result caused all sort o problems to them :)

That is good news, you never know with some games

I used to play it a long way back, in the 70s, I remember liking it, and especially the "engaged" result in the CRT, it put a new meaning to combat results :)
