Re: Mortar minimum ranges....not saying we should change the rules

You could allow four 6s on command dice to break a rule instead of special event. Now define how you are allowed to break a rule. :)

Re: Multiple Phases

Is anyone who has their own approach likely to switch over to an "officially sanctioned alternative"? Just curious. If I decided there was a problem, I'd lean towards that, I think. I'm a bit curious whether TT's approach encourages maneuver. (This because of the question that comes up sometimes abo...

Re: How to stop battles degenerating into long-range shooting matches?

I was thinking this sounded familiar and looked for a similar thread. I found one, though it is not quite the same thing.

How do you attack in this game?

Re: Multi Targeting

As to your side note, you can pick a spot (before you roll) that could be designated, like: * go to the fence * get to the woods I think that would include: * join the rest of the squad You can stop at that spot, even if it it closer than what you rolled. You can't pick a spot in an open area that h...

Re: When is a unit pinned

It's actually the shooter's choice. The rulebook has this to say about using Command Dice to active units under section 4.2.1: The player may choose the order in which the dice are used and whether they are used in sequence - one at a time, with the results being applied after each one - or all tog...

Backing over an obstacle

Can you reverse over a minor obstacle for one drive die?

If it takes more than one, can a Slow tank do it?

We charged two dice but allowed the Slow tank to cross, but I think I lean towards one Drive die.

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...
