      Normal price is at 39$ iirc, and 24$ during the 3-day Blitz sale. I can only encourage people who never tried TOAW to take advantage of it, it's the game of a lifetime! (playing it for like ten years now and I still consider it the best PC wargame ever )

        That is indeed a sweet price.

        Only downside, is I already own it hehe.
        Life is change. Built models for decades.
        Not sure anyone here actually knows the real me.
        I didn't for a long time either.

            Sure after I buy it at full price they put it on sale. Oh well it was still worth it.

                Get two - at that price, they're a steal...

                Hmm, seriously though - it *is* a good price - any grogs that might be swayed to the 'dark side' with a gift like that?

                    I currently play and devote all my PC gaming time to Combat Mission. In the past i have enjoyed East Front, West Front & Rising Sun. How much of a step up from those types of games, the last three, is TOAWIII? I also understand that TOAWIII covers many wars and time frames. What all eras can you fight in? This game does sound interesting. Thanks for the info.

                      I've only given a cursory playing to the Campaign Series games. I enjoyed the production qualities, and the gameplay, but I am just not much of a fan of Tactical level combat games - whether on the computer, or the game table. Likewise, with Combat Mission. I never got into it, for two reasons, the aforementioned, and the fact that I don't really enjoy WEGO type games. In short, tactical level games just don't "grab" me.

                      TOAW III is a turn-based, operational level game that does have incredible depth, and to play it at "top-levels" requires a bit of a learning curve to be mastered. That said, it can also be played more casually with much less involvement on the part of the player in understanding the nuts and bolts of the game. In fact, many PBEM players do prefer to seek out less competitive players just to lower their own stress levels.

                      The game can cover from about 1870-present day with relative ease, and has been extended, with varying success by some creative scenario designers, to the early 1800's. It's "sweet spot" is WWII-Korean Conflict era, 10 Km per hex, regimental to brigade sized units. However, the game easily scales fairly well a couple of degrees in either direction on both hex and unit scales, with competent work by the designer, of course.

                      Several active communities can be found to help you locating opponents, or to simply answer questions. Over the course of the years, I've found the TOAW crowd to comprise some of the least pretentious, and most helpful communities that I've ever found online. Of course there are exceptions, but that's usually either before I've had my coffee, or had too much of it...

                        Thanks for the info. Wow, a game that covers that much territory. Id be interested in the lower end of the scale of games to start with. Its too bad this game doesnt reach back to the American Civil War, that would be awesome and open up sales to whole new customer base. Germans marching into Paris to The current Iraqi conflict and beyond all in one game is hard to beat. Ill definately look into this more. Thanks again.

                          It does reach back to the ACW actually, some people have designed scenarios about it, and more are still to come now that designers have the possibility to edit the equipment database, making the possibilities virtually endless (although keeping in mind, like James points out, that TOAW's forte is the WW2 operational level battle).

                            Couldnt the designers come out with a patch that could cover say the Napoleonic or ACW wars up to say the Zulu wars for example and fix the equipment database?

                              FYI, the designer of TOAW, Norm Koger, designed another game years ago, Age of Rifles. It covers the period 1840-1910. I used to enjoy it. Guess I'd need DOSBox or something to get it to run on my current system, though.

                              AOR had scenarios from most all wars of the period. Had an editor, too.

                              Some folks are still playing AOR; you can find fan sites if you look around.
