What is the hex scale and how many minutes per turn?

Hexes are 50 m (~150 feet). I believe I mixed up feet and meters (I said 150m ) in a previous post. This is correct.

Turns are roughly 2-4 minutes.

but rather to skid in broadside, totally worn out & proclaiming "WOW, what a ride!"

2-4 minutes? is that just waiting on the ai to make a move or do you mean your time to think out the situation and plan your moves?

As he was talking about the scale, it's clear that he meant the turns represent 2-4 minutes of real time.

As far as waiting for the AI to move, the time is negligible, a matter of seconds.

John,

I told you this before. This is a great game. Beats CoH hands down and I like CoH. It's a great conversion of a great board game series [;)]

Well, if you ever played the old Pride of Nations you'd know why I asked.

Hi Ed,

I am leaning towards buying it. My hesitation has to do with time. Between Combat Mission, Flashpoint Campaigns, Squad Battles, JohnTillers Campaign Series, and Steel Beasts, where will I find the time for another game. I should think I would need 3 lifetimes to play through all the scenarios I have not yet tried. [X(]

Mind you I have always managed to overcome this hesitation in the past.

You think YOU have worries about too many games to play? I have 100's. Upwards of more than I care to count. I have so many I stopped counting and proably need to catalog them again. How I miss the days when I had a few games like you do. Do you know what kind of strain that is deciding on what game I should play each day when I have so many crying out my name? Well, perhaps you do if you don't have as much time on your hands as I do right now. Unemployment gives you a lot of playtime and worry time for sure. I blame it all on Steam and Gamersgate and Gog for having all those $5 games for sale. I forget the last time I bought a retail game. Well, no I didn't I bought Diablo III out of the chute last year and it was a $60 pos. Live and learn I always say live and learn. I could have bought 12 poc games for $5 for that $60 I wasted.

John,

This game will hook you quick. When I was beta testing I would fire it up to test for an hour and 3 hours later
I was still testing

It's a true to the bone board game of squad combat [:D]

The Flashpoint patch is delayed and so is the new JTCS.[;)]
