[quote="muddymonkey77"]These games are $50.00 each? I'll get them if they are worth it. What's your opinion? QUOTE]
An alternative source is NWS Online:
Stock price is $USD 33. This is also where I purchased BOA and am hoping that soon they will have Napoleon Campaign available. No slight to AGEOD, of course, just that the blasted euro is kicking our boo-hiny!
The engine is different from the scope of BOA in that it is a company level simulation. Not only is my opinion of the games VERY favorable, but the system is tried and true with an extensive history of support and response behind it. The Tiller games extend into many realms ... Nappy, ACW, Modern, WWII, etc.
The CCC is a mix of enthusiasts and casual gamers who take on the personality of the era in various degrees, but as I understand, much more lightheartedly than say those in the Civil War era clubs, or even the Napoleon-ites!! We have a great deal of fun and the competition is keen, though usually in an atmosphere of 'play for the fun and cameraderie' rather than just for victory at all costs ... though I usually get my derriere handed to me on a platter
leure: ... but I occassionally get my licks in
It is my humble privilege to have achieved the rank of Lieutenant Colonel with the title Baron of Rhode Island (a battle where I achieved a noteworthy victory) and have recently been assigned command of the Right Wing Corps of the British Army in America, Marquess the Lord Kingston, commanding (who lurks here under a different moniker
) Formerly, I served as the Provincial Brigade Commander and my first billeting was as Regimental Commander of the 23d Foot, the Royal Welch Fusiliers. Ahh, but I do miss Billy at times, but there is the price of upward mobility!!
Here is the link to the British Army CIC:
If you were to buy one to start, I think either Campaign 1776, as it was the original of the series and most all members have it (not to worry, many, many expansion scenarios crafted to extend the playability!) or my favorite, The French & Indian War. Or perhaps best to jump in with the cutting edge and get the just-released Mexican American War ... which I do not yet have, but pay-eth day-eth approacheth!
New features, new unit types and an almost ground-breaking look at a conflict much neglected by the gaming industry.
BTW I do not work for or receive anything from HPS (except hours and hours of gaming satisfaction
) and I apreciate AGEOD's patience for allowing me to tout this club. I would really like to see more people in the CCC who play BOA. If you only have BOA
and enjoy PBEM
... please come and give us a try! You can join any one of four armies: The Continental (with an 1812 department); The British Army; The French who fight for His Most Christian Majesty; or the Native alliance (for those who look good in loin cloths, and no, kilts do NOT count!
BTW muddy ... interested in a game of BOA by email??
