I thought I read somewhere that 2by3 now has all the maps to Europe and Africa. So I was wondering are they going to put out other games? I was a GDW junkie. What was so great about GDW was they had giant games like Fire in the East and Second Front to smaller ones like Case White (Poland), Their Finest Hour (France), Norway, and the Balkan Front and medium sized games like War in the Desert. What was great about these games is they all used the same game mechanics, so if you were familiar with one game you knew the basic game mechanics of all their games.
I've read 2by3 is working on a game for the West but have they thought about creating other games like smaller ones like Case White, or medium ones like War in the Desert? I would definately be in the front of the line to buy them.
I don't know if 2by3 ever thought about this, but GDW used to offer a discount if you bought the game before it was completely designed, this helped the company with the cost of developing the game and kept cash flow coming into the company.
GDW had a cult following and was a trusted company by the followers of the compnany. In my short experience with this game, the gaming community and the responses by the 2by3 on this site, it seems to me that 2by3 has the same great qualities that GDW had. I know I feel comfortable with 2by3 and would be willing to pay for games in advance, knowing they will come out a couple months later, and feel others may too.
Yeah GDW were great games but man the physical handling of those counter stacks was a real pain.
History began July 4th, 1776. Anything before that was a mistake.
