These all look very interesting IMHO. Probably out of my price range but ya never know. Would be a hard choice. I downloaded the Rule book and examples of play for each game from the Compass site.

Vietnam: Rumor of War

huge map 40"by 66" (imo too big)

Thanks for posting! I just learned about the Vietnam Rumour of War the other week, looks a proper monster doesn't it.

But a shout for the Bar Lev as well, it looks very intriguing as how it deploys the two maps for simultaneous action both at Sinain and at Golan Heights.

We are seeing a proper boardgame reneissance, aren't we

Bar-Lev does seem like something special.

Vietnam: Rumor of War uses the Operational Scale System which seems to be away to streamline monster games. I hope it works as intended.

Quote from the Compass site:
"The Operational Scale System (OSS) is meant to be a fast, accessible way of playing, and finishing, larger games. Finally playing a large “monster game” will no longer require hundreds of hours – now, you can easily complete a game of this size in a weekend"
