    Wow, I'd rep. you agin but I can't

    I'll search for squad leader and see what I come up with (just so I'll be sure-in any case not to waste my time on ASL and SL is solo playable right?)

    I'll give SPAW another chance (in anycase I'm more infantry oriented)

    And I'll check out Squad Battles and Lock n Load, see what I come up with.

    I did try Highway to the Reich but it was too much for me to handle, too muce detailed, an operational/strategic level game when your in control of company sized units...

    Agin, thanks so much for you help!

        The first item is a worthless piece of garbage (you won't find anyone that disagrees).

        The second one is the one and only Squad Leader, and at 10 bucks is a good opportunity to see what you think of a classic. I'd go for it.

        Oh and remember always, some games are meant to be solo as they are designed intentionally to be played solo. And some are merely solo capable.

        Here is a quote from the 1977 edition of the game on the back of the box "Be forewarned! Squad Leader is not an easy game. Do not attempt it without prior wargaming experience." Looking back, that quote might have made sense then, now it sounds kind of silly. Back then though, wargaming barely existed.
        The first scenario is playable after approximately 5 minutes reading.

        Life is change. Built models for decades.
        Not sure anyone here actually knows the real me.
        I didn't for a long time either.
