Re: 29th Lets Go campaign and LOS

I've been working on a PSC-like game for some of the actions of Operation Crusader in North Africa, and many of these have extremely sparse terrain. For one of these, the only terrain features are smoke, dust, and burning vehicles. But in all cases, both sides have objectives that can only be met by...

Re: Far East, Far East? Jungle terrain? Oddcast perk up

Not to mention a lot of the "island-hopping" battles; many of the atolls and tiny specks of land the Allies were trying to assault were little more than grassy beaches with a few rocky outcrops and sparse palm trees.

Re: Can a pinned ambushing team be removed from table?

Just adding a "+1" to the idea of applying the pinning/routing immediately and not allowing normal withdrawal of the Ambushing team. That is absolutely how I would interpret that situation.

Re: Far East, Far East? Jungle terrain? Oddcast perk up

You know it’s interesting and it may not reflect anything wider, although I suspect it does, but I’ve had fewer page views to the Malaya campaign than any other PSC on my blog. This is a shame, because the Malaya games you've done so far have been great! Gorgeous minis, great terrain, and a crackin...

Re: Bunker Buster

Cover does affect HE; if you are behind a stone wall, you'll be counted as in soft cover. To me it seems like the rule is to prevent the BB players from saying, "Oh, your guys are hiding behind this wall? Well now my Bunker Buster is coming from this other side of the table where the stone wall does...

Re: Close Combat question

Yeah, this sounds like the Japanese squad effectively stumbled into the Aussies, so even though they may have wanted to fire, they ended up in CC. Also, since jungle is so limiting to line of sight, it seems like these sorts of "accidental" close combats would be more prevalent, which (if some of th...

Re: Want To Try

Oh, well if you want to do solo gaming, Lardy games are fantastic for that. The "friction" built into the game makes for a ton of uncertainty and keeps you on your toes even if you know what your "opponent's" battle plan is.

Re: Big CoC advice sought for introducing new players.

In general, for learning games I'm not as big a fan of extra "surprises" baked into the scenario, because it can often feel like you're just springing one more thing on unsuspecting players. If you want to introduce a little more uncertainty into the game, then work with each team to pick their supp...
