The design document for the Stalingrad game was pretty much locked-up in May. So any good ideas that have emerged or will emerge are tagged for possible inclusion in the next game--Monty's Front. This game will deal exclusively with the combat operations by 21st Army Group between August-November 1944. The major operations covered in this game center around Objective Antwerp...i.e. Market-Garden and the Battle for the Scheldt.

Describe your version of this game.

hmmmm...this will be the next game after Stalingrad boys...so... Time to clickity-click your druthers. Once I put it in the box (design document)--the box is sealed. Last minute is not game design. I want to hear your views on Monty's Front. Thanks!

Hard to comment until Stalingrad is out.

Assume success in any plan. If you don't, you won't know what to do if by chance--you get there. You'll be flyin' by the seat of your pants.

So describe your game experience if you know anything about the subject matter. Market-Garden plus Canadians plus Antwerp = Monty's Front. What are your ideas? Thanks!

I would like to expand the after action review capability when we get to Monty's Front. The purpose of these AAR products is to help the players understand what is happening during gameplay--and what happened when gameplay is done. Hopefully, access to this info will enhance game play.

Currently we show victory points awarded, fuel and ammo on-hand/lost to enemy interdiction over time. Some folks don't care about this info. We'd like to hear from those who do. What other statistics would you like to see during and/or following game play?

I would like to see the friendly units destroyed on their own display window throughout the game. Sometimes in bigger scenarios it is not always possible for an old fart like me to remember the particulars of what unit(s) of mine were just destroyed etc.

Yes, that's a good idea. Might revamp the entire misc panel (with interdiction/counter-air/reinformcements etc) and add that sort of data too, as well as showing losses as explicit number of men/vehicles etc.

Please post your AAR expansion ideas over here. I should have created its own space before I asked the question:

Weigh-in. Monty's Front 1944 is where your best game suggestion has a chance to make it into the BK Game engine after-next. What do you want to see?
