There's a lot to be found in the manual
Depending on your definition of "a lot" this alone could represent a significant advance over the first game's manual, for which "inadequate" would be an extremely generous description.

Re: <t>The Admiral's Guide to Rule the Waves 2</t>

This is definitely one of those games that seems like it was designed for those who already play it, which is why I've held off despite being very interested in the subject matter. I could never really make heads or tails of the first one, even though I was an early Steam and Iron adopter and never ...

Re: <t>Further Reading: Hearts of Iron 4 - The Imperial Japanese Navy in the Pacific</t>

Interesting stuff. I want you to know that I was actually in Japan when your article on wargaming in Tokyo was published, so I stopped by the Shosen Book Tower, which I would not have known about if not for you. I didn't end up buying anything there (luggage space was very tight, and it was the very...

The eastern front has been done to death. I'm not really seeing anything this review that would answer what is, for me, an important question: price aside, what would lead me to choose this game over, say, War in the East or Decisive Campaigns: Barbarossa?

Re: Op-Ed: We Need Friction In Digital Wargames Too

So, guys, there IS a Napoleonic (and also American Civil War) game with a first person restriction (if you choose), orders delay by in-game courier, etc. It's called Scourge of War. There is both Waterloo and Gettysburg. On the operational level, there is an old (but still being updated!) Napoleonic...

Re: Sliding to DEFCON 1: Twilight Struggle tournament thread

I created a game with Empt yesterday and this morning got a notification that it was ready...with a different player. I believe if someone declines your invitation the PLaydek system open the game up and allows anyone to respond. I'll try again. Empt posted before my match with him he is using King...

Re: Sliding to DEFCON 1: Twilight Struggle tournament thread

That's how Playdek multiplayer works. I'd say you could count Empt out.

My game with skoptic is under way and in round 2.
Yeah, I don't think it's timing out, either. Happening so fast it seems like he must be rejecting the invite.
