I just came across this in the wargames thread on the steel beasts forum- http://general-staff.com/kickstarter/

this sounds mighty fine and the list of battles that will be available is impressive, it is as i understand it a new version of UMS made by the same person

but perhaps everyone else knows of this already and i am as usual not keeping up with things

Yeah I posted that over at SB but have not followed. Seems that for $50 you get the whole deal now and Kickstart went well. Beta testing at present.

I think Wodin would know more about it as he has a entry in his blog...

Ezra is a really interesting guy with a lot of experience in the AI field. We chatted to him about General Staff a year or so ago so we'll be keeping our eyes on it :)

Thanks Red for posting that, i only just now notice that is you over there in that thread posting also

his backstory is interesting, sad though also regarding the illness and the medical costs involved. I never played the UMS games, but now i might give them a look as it sounds that he really puts alot into AI at least going by his academic work and what General Staff promises to offer

I did the write ups on AWNT. I also bought into the KS.

I believe I bought all of the DRs early games from 20+ years ago. The ideas were great,but computers were not ready for them. At least my different computers weren't.

If General Staff is really half the game it seems to be I believe it will be a game changer.
