CC A Bridge too Far. Then a friend told me about another CC game that had just been released at the time - CC3 The Russian Front. Bought that a couple of days later. Awesome series.

I started table top wargaming when I was a kid...too long ago to remember  Very Happy I have close to a thousand 25 mm napolionic figs I don't use now. I started playing CC at CC 2 and was hooked.....love CC.
my favorite right now is LSA / GJS mod. stock LSA isn't that great per say but love all the game options it has. IMO it was the pinicle of CC for that....all the stuff we wanted in a CC game. matrix finally listened...then after LSA took some of the options out....sigh.

I have great hopes for the bloody first....hoping Matrix listens to the people who buy there games and improves on it to make better CC games.....so far im not getting my hopes up in that dept........sigh


WHEN THE PIN IS PULLED "MR GRENADE"IS NOT OUR FRIEND !

Plastic soldiers on a brown and cream, 12" tiled linoleum bedroom floor, between my bed and my bother's. Assorted toys were used to landscape the battlefield, from Ft Apaches walls to Lincoln Logs (which 'explode' really well when hit solidly). Every turn you got to move 3 soldiers half a tile each, attempting to get a guy to the enemy goal line. After WeGo movement you got to shoot, from up on your bed, as many rubber bands as there were soldiers left alive for you. MGs got to shoot as many rubber bands as you could fit onto your fingers in 1 shot. Mortar and bazooka men got to use the heavier gauge rubber bands. One soldier was secretly selected to be your sides leader. If he got killed you immediately lost.
We had rules for determining who was killed or wounded, with wounded men returning to battle at your goal line after 3-5 turns depending on how bad he was hit. Any man who had a rubber band touching his base or body was pinned and could fire but not move.

Needless to say we spent far more time battling it out on the floor than doing homework. But only until  Avalon Hill came along, then SPI.
