I'm not convinced the problem here is with Rich's approach to writing rules.
I'd buy that.

Re: Are national army weapon stats at player's opinion?

I should add: My favorite parts of CoC are game mechanics that add suspense and excitement, and some of my games are non-historical, just for the fun of the game. (The Quar are whimsical figures with a WW1 feel.) But I've played several WW2 games (and one SCW) with a group that are quite knowledgeab...

Re: Are national army weapon stats at player's opinion?

I think if you're interested in playing a platoon-level wargame, it's reasonable to assume you've either already got a fair knowledge of what a WW2 infantry platoon looked like, or are keen to find out. Sure I want to know enough to play the game. And I feel CoC gives me enough. But every now and t...

Re: Are national army weapon stats at player's opinion?

I relate to the original point to some degree, without expressing it in the same way. When I read military history, I may be reading pretty high level things (currently reading Atkinson), or stories of men at company or below. But I'm not that interested in the hardware details. I'm not sure it make...

Re: JOP clarification

With the idea of a JOP being as far as is safe for enemy troops to go, and a place where enemy troops might actually be, I think it makes sense that a unit visiting that space has scouted that spot and revealed it to be enemy-free at the moment. So I think you have to remain if you're within 4", but...

Re: House rules for double moves and single sixes.

I am not enamoured that a player is punished by the game for throwing a sinlge six, and don’t really see this game mechanic as an attractive way of representing friction really. I don't think that "punished" is the right word. If you only have one senior leader and you roll two 4s, that's part of t...

Re: House rules for double moves and single sixes.

There are scenarios very dependent on the number of CoC dice you get. You'd have to consider whether any of them get unbalanced by handing out extra pips.

Re: Pictures from Quar What a Tanker! game

Thanks for responses.

I like the idea of drawing counters, and allow choosing between 2 on the wild die.

Re: Pictures from Quar What a Tanker! game

Some thoughts: I had printed out some reference sheets, but did not use them. I could use tabs on a few pages of the book. I confused drive dice with the d6 used to move a few times. For example, one time I gave up d6 for moving over an obstacle, when I should have used a drive dice. It probably wou...

Pictures from Quar What a Tanker! game

I'm one of those who have used Chain of Command for my Quar, an imaginary but not too crazy force from Zombiesmith. I wanted to use their tanks (they call them "tractors") in a simple game, and we had fun trying out What a Tanker! Not much of a battle report, but some pictures: https://photos.app.go...
