Back on Line - CD Test of Battle Game Report

Man! Does time fly! I can't believe it has been so long since my last post. I haven't been doing much gaming. Last weekend I had a chance to play in a Command Decision - Test of Battle game at a friends house. The rules are really interesting and the figures we used were great, however, the scenario needs some work. It was a British vs. Italian Western Desert game. I played on the British side and we got our heads handed to us. The Italians were dug in and the Brits had basically just tanks to attack with. The rules really favor dug in defenses because they are so difficult to spot and return fire on. I think the rules have some promise, however, I think they are a bit involved unless you play them often. I think at this point in my life I want to play a simpler set of rules. that I can be away from and come back to easily. I'll let you know if I play the rules again.
