Many years ago, when we discovered that there was a shop in the far away city of Zürich that sold Dungeons & Dragons material, we also saw lots of strategy games in the far corners of the shop. How weird!
The years passed and Marcel bought Squad Leader. Many years ago I’ve played the first two scenarios, I think. Today we played through the first scenario again. I think the rules are a bit too complicated, and I’m a bit afraid that while I get used to the rules we used today, the new rules for the next scenario will be just as complicated. We’ll see. I’m fascinated by the second world war and tactical combat, so it might go either way. I’m looking forward to the next session.
I’d be interested in similar games with simpler mechanics. Increase the coolness without increasing the complexity.
