newb, Thanks for the info. Please let me know what you think of it again when you do get to play it. Thanks so much.

I've always been crazy, but it's kept me from going insane.

I think Victory 2 would be an excellent campaign system for any tactical game. It is super smoothly designed and has good game sience running the mechanics of the game.

TOI, looks too involved for my lifestyle. I've really had to stretch a bit to allow BL into my world as it has an 80 page rulebook and much depth to chew on. TOI would collect tons of dust.

Teamski is surprisingly tart
After watching this movie put out by FF, I had to Pre-order Tide Of Iron! It answered a ton of my questions and is just top notch! Check it out....

Game looks REALLY good. I love the unit stands. I'm picking this one up for sure.

Thanks for posting the link to the video, Teamski! I really like the idea behind the game and it's not card driven like M44 or BL which is great because I was concerned it was going to be a clone of those games. The strategy cards and command points look like a great way to add variety to the game and allow the players to call in support or boost morale at appropriate moments. A nice quality video which changed my mind about the game.

Newb.

After watching the vid I'm definitely interested, but it does seem rather like WWII Battlelore. Which isnt really a bad thing I suppose. That msrp sure is steep though.

Ditto. After getting a quick glimpse of this at Gencon I thought it was just going to be FFG's clone of Memoir '44 and was likely going to pass. I might have to pick this up...

I was gonna pick it up, but I'm gonna hold off for a while. My FLGS had it and the box is pretty big. Looked bigger than Descent's box, but they're probably the same size. I've been looking at the World Tank Campaigns game that FFG is coming out with instead. I love tanks.

Wow, this game looks SOOOO good to me. It seems to have enough elements of Squad Leader to scratch that grognard itch, but enough eye candy and simplicity of gameplay to actually find someone who is willing to give it a go.

Just what I need, another expandable game system! I need to start getting some game time in with the ones I already own before I can really justify this purchase (I've only played Battlelore twice, and I haven't even play one game with the pacific theater expansion for MM44, and it's been about three months since I've played Heroscape!).

I've read the reviews at BGG, but was just wondering if anyone here has played it yet. I'd especialliy like to get some feedback from someone who is/was into Squad Leader or other "heavy" war games.
