I am once again in two minds about keeping versus collecting. Playing and discarding vs playing and treasuring.
Where do we draw the line on keeping a title you wont play again, but love it due to the fact it is a ‘classic’. Does a digital copy suffice? – If you really love it you can print the parts and play again or play on VASSAL?
If I sell CityFight because I wont play it solo, should I also sell EiA? The question boils down to preferences today for games versus what I might like at a later date. As of today I lean towards bigger monster games, that are more involved. Tactical games across eras. But with titles in the Napoleonic era, how often will I replay The Gamers Austerlitz? Likely never. Will I invest the effort to really try to understand A Most Dangerous Time? Is Where there is discord destined to be like every other solo game purchased – sold off?
Or am I in a funk and should just chill out and not make a rash decision? First world wargamer problems. Perhaps it is time to just buy some storage boxes for the excess.
In this very first play we follow the instructions to setup. Then see what transpires from here.
The key difference is visibility range. In the tutorial its 5000m, in mine just 2500m.
This hinders shots. I also do not agree with unit placement…..based on what I think I know.
The Soviet arty gets to pound pretty hard in this play and I did no Counter Battery. That said the scenario is over quickly.
A fresh play with my preferred setup is next.
Voice over is not audible. So dont try turning up the sound!
