Played through the entire tutorial last night. I really like this new version. If you've played PG i the past you can play PC now np. Even if you havent, this is a simple to learn, fun to play, impossible to master type of game.

There are some new tidbids that make it the PG you always wanted it to be.

Units can now use rail lines to move between cities. Speaking of rail lines there are railguns and armored train units now.

There is a new type of ship unit thats like an armored boat that can travel along rivers.

Certain AA units such as the German 88mm Flak gun can switch between the AA and AT role at your whim.

Units in combat that have more than 3 units "touching them", ie in combat with them, get a much reduced defense because of being spread to thin along the front.

Mt. Troops actually act like Mt. Troops and disregard the movement penalty for moving through Mts.

It actually pays to have scout cars in the game now. If you discover enemy units without getting ambushed, you get a possible series of bonus, one hex moves to scout out the enemy position. Very cool and very "scout like".

Units can now be awarded medals and citations and heros can emerge from the ranks to make your units even more powerful.

Plus all the updated graphics and interfaces that make the game look great.

I would reccomend this to anyone.

Ok Mark, lets do this thing. Im ready to go.

If you know how to start an email game let me know what to do and we'll get one going.

Anyone else have this yet?

Slitherine should port this over the the XBOX360. I think it would look great on my big HD Flatscreen.

Well. . . when I start multiplayer it asks for a username and password, but I have no idea what mine are. I've tried every combination I've ever used on everything, but no luck.

I'm working on it, Kent. When I get home tonight, I'll try to figure it out.

How about the Kursk scenario? I haven't played it. Choose a side.

You have to register the game and when you do you pick a name, in my case "KGPanzerschreck", {it wont let you put a _ in a name} and a PW, but im assuming you set up a game on your PC and then send it to their servers and then the opposing player has to pick it out and then go from there. I logged on the other night just to see what it looked like and some of the games had a lock symbol infront of them so im assuming you can password them so just anyone cant join. If im telling you a bunch of stuff you already know i apologize, but this is about all ive figured out so far.


FYI - It only took my hard copy 4 days to come to my house from there shipping location. I dont know where thats at as it wasnt marked on the padded envelope.

All right. Got it figured out. Cool. . . I thought it was going to be PBEM, but it looks like it's an ip game. I guess we have to agree on a time to play. My wife's out of town all weekend, but UT and OU play in an hour (11:00 cst), so let me know when you want to have the scrap and I'll be there.

Okay. . . it is PBEM (I think). I set up one of the mp scenarios (The Frozen North) and issued a challenge.
