In the restock question, you don’t ask about the breakthrough maps. It’s what I’m waiting for. :wink:

I really loved and played the Online game a lot. I would be really happy to see an iOS implementation to play on an iPad!

I’d play online if there was an Android phone app. I might play online a bit when I get a new laptop. Anyway I think it’s the greatest war boardgame there is. It and the other CnC games especially The Great War.

Good news looks like in USA Boardlandia has restock of just about everything except D-Day and Campaign Vol. 2. Should get out to other dealers within the month (Europe already restocked). Amazing response time to this poll from Days of Wonder. :smile:

I think there should definitely be an option to select playing solo. Its all I can manage these days!

#7 - Simplicity in rules but real depth in tactics, and even at the strategy level.
#16 - really need the campaign book vol 2
#19 I bought a storage system online

I play using my micro armor miniatures on cigar box battle mats with hexes printed on them. Unless I’m testing out a scenario by playing my wife, most all of my games are multi-player with my wargame game group (the Jackson Gamers).

I even ran Hedgerow Hell at Bayou Wars in Biloxi MS last June.

I Frequently play solo and would love to see an offline version for PC or android with an AI opponent.
I do not agree with the Pay per Play model nor am I always online or even have access to a cellular network when I like to play, i.e. on leave in the African Bush.

Cheers
Chris

I share your opinion on the pay per play model. I’m reluctant to pay for the game because there are so few players in my time zone. Its not worth the money if you can’t get a game regularly.
