The Wargamer's Tournament - we're playing Conflict of Heroes!!!

This exciting new release is a faithful adaptation of the renowned Conflict of Heroes board game that won the Origins Historical Game of the Year, Charles Roberts Wargame of the Year and the James F. Dunnigan Design Elegance Award, as well as many others!

Designed and developed in cooperation with Uwe Eickert, the original designer of Conflict of Heroes, and Western Civlization Software, the award-winning computer wargame studio, no effort has been spared to bring the outstanding Conflict of Heroes gameplay to the computer. Conflict of Heroes includes an AI opponent as well as full multiplayer support with an integrated forum and game lobby. To remain true to the core gameplay of the board game, the PC version is designed to be fun, fast and easy to play, though hard to master. The game design is also historically accurate and teaches and rewards platoon and company-level combined arms tactics without overwhelming the player with rules.

What side were you playing when you lost?

I have yet to find a human opponent. It is my fault because I do not have a consistent schedule for when I am available, but maybe some day.

The Germans. 1 loss because of bad dice rolls imo and the others to superior tactics. I did win that scenario twice as the Germans although in 1 game it came down to my last AP and CAP to secure the victory hex. It all depends how the LMG's fare.

Glad the practice games I just played with Jamm weren't the tourney or it would be lights out for me already. I was thoroughly trashed.

I wouldn't say trashed. Both games were well played and you learn so much more playing another person.

The wargaming gods ( die rolls ) and a few timely cards helped my cause.

If we make it past the first round we'll have to practice again, unless of course we play each other,..

Well, things didn't go so good for me in the tourney and I was out-played in both games. Good job Eric Rutins and Hugi and good luck in the next round.

Missouri,

You are a very good player and you beat me the last time we played. You definitely could have gone all the way. The dice and cards were kind to me this time.

I didn't like the random cards thing. Both games my opponents got better cards than I did. Both games were closer than the score indicates. Both players got crappy dice rolls all the time [:D]
