We've just started a new The Next War campaign....I've been playing this game for almost 30 years now and it's always the best for me.

We plan to keep a blog with a detailed After Action Report, if you want to take a look here's the URL:
War Without KIA

More power to you!

So many of the old games, board and computer, deserve a revisit.

I remember it! But for me it's difficult to play these monster games on a PC, I lose the "overall sight".

Ditto.

It is included with the TOAW III package. You will find it in the Modern - NATO Vs Warsaw Pact folder together with a the Tension variant.

The time frame for the original "The Next War" game is 1978-1980, more or less. I presume the TOAWIII module is based on the same period.

I also made a scenario for GDW's Third World War for Schwerpunkt's Anglo-German War PC game. Someday after Scwherpunkt's forthcoming WWII-Europe game gets released, I intend to update the TWW scenario for it. We just don't seem to have good operational WW-III games these days like the old SSI Norm Koger classic, Red Lightning. That would be worth an update.

While NATO is moving, I've added some direct experiences from the battlefield and an overall map of WP advance.

Speaking of 'Next Wars', has anyone started on a Russia vs NATO in Ukraine yet?
