I'm a big WWI buff and stumbled upon this site while surfing. What an awesome idea!! I've always hated the fact that the wargaming PC world ignores the Great War! I'm so pumped!!! On to Paris!!!!!!!!!

There are several scenarios for TOAW available. There have been several attempts to make PC games that deal with WW1 ('The Entente' and 'Another War' are recent efforts) but I can't think of any that have been successful either commercially or critically.

Myself and a few friends made a WW1 mod for Close Combat 2 and 3 which maybe of interest to you. The Dugout

Hey KaiserBill,

Join the ranks waiting for this one. Its been a long time coming, and now at Matrix its overshadowed by all of the WW2 etc. etc. games. But we have to keep the morale up around here - it will be worth the wait.

I had TOAW years ago, but lost my copy during a move. Anyone know where I might buy a copy? And where can I download the Close Combat Mod??

If you accept Diplomacy as a First World War game, it's been very successful over the years.

Admittedly, as a simulation it's rather crude...

Famous last words from a programmer!!! It compiled, it must be ready Yes, I write code for a living too. Really looking forward to this one Frank. Keep up the good work.

haha, well that's true, but then it was compiling almost a year ago :) What I meant by done is I can play it all the way through with all rules and no visible bugs. That doesn't mean an hour after the testers have it I won't be told "you have to fix this thing here" :)
