Just picked up the discounted version of the Polish/France campaign and it is really great game. I already have the Case Blue and I think the Cards really make the decision making interesting. Keep up the good work! I have been playing war games since the 70's and this is one of the best ones I have ever played. (board or computer). Outstanding job VIC!

I agree that this is one of the best games around. Glad you are enjoying it.

Just bought the game a few days ago and want to give a positive first impression also. Very pleased. I use to play hex based games growing up, but it has been forever since I actually bought one. This really is an excellent game for those like me that may want to take another look at one. Well done.

Hey Bradd, I too started in the 70's with SPI & Avalon Hill games. This is currently the best system I have seen in a long time. HQ & leadership is very good. Seems like it almost makes you play into the historical doctrines of the two sides. And it's tweak-able in the editor to boot.

Yep, That is what I learned too. Panzer Blitz. Panzer Leader. Squad Leader, Advanced Squad Leader. Wow! Squad leader was a like book with the big orange binder. That is why I like computer games. They do the calculations :)

But I really enjoy both DC games. For me the Cards make the games exciting and I like the supply and leadership aspect. I think the game models both systems very well. Nothing like playing the airborne card to seize an important bridge.

I look forward to the next installment. Brad

And I stick by what I had posted earlier. This is one of the best if not the best game (Computer or Board game) I have EVER played.

I still have the boxed game and the orange binder :) Every couple of years nostalgia gets the better of me and I take it out to set it up on my table, then I look over at my PC and box the game up again LOL
