Hi, saw this is on a pretty deep sale. Does anyone still play this and how well does it run on windows 10?
I own Campaigns on the Danube and am a big fan of it. Think it’s the same developer. I’m also a big fan of the Gary Grisby games.
So this looks like a lot of fun.

Also how good is the Ai? I tend to exclusively play single player. I’m not the best though and tend to self handicap sometimes to give the ai a chance (I don’t do gamey stuff). So it doesn’t need to be too competent.

Don’t know if anyone even comes here anymore aha, but hopefully someone can help.
Thanks!

I would say buy it - been a few years since I played it, but the AI gave a good game.

Frank Hunter is a much deeper thinker than msot game designers IMO - this is a chellenging game where logistics is the most important skil to master.

IMO it's a real shame he hasn't followed it up with more scenarios.

As an aside, Guns of August is a simlarly "deep" WW1 game that is another masterpiece ... although the UI and maps are pretty naf :)

Thanks! For the price I’ll give it a shot then :)

Yes! I own Guns of August, it is a very fun game. Though like you say map let’s it down a bit.
