The cover art is definitely similar to PB. The game has no resemblance to PB though. It uses individual tanks and is much more complex.

Same designer as the 1980's Yaquito "88", "Panzer" and Avalon Hills "Main Battle Tank" along with the AH Mideast version of the same. IDF I think.

Long list of tactical games.

Latest game I've got charged for, I was late pre-orderer, and am still waiting for i:s Liberty or Death. The GMT COIN series comes to the American Revolution. The four sides are:

Patriots
England
Indians
French

Interestingly enough the Vassal Module is already available. Attaching a snap shot of the northern part of the map.

Excellent batch of games.

TTWW is one of my favorite series of all times, I'm a WP vs NATO aficionado. If you use Vassal to play games there is an very good module and set of module extensions for the series. I happen to know the creator, me, and highly recommend it. On the Vassal main site.

I have both Liberty Roads and Victory roads, have not had much to do with them other than read the rules. I like the game concepts.

Love NW:K. I have the other two in the series also. Playtested NW:T.

Yes I have your Vassal TWW module downloaded and I'm looking forward to playing it soon with the guy I bought the series from.

I had them back in the 80's but they were destroyed in a moving accident about 20 years ago. My friend had two complete copies of the series and sold them to me for $120.00 total!

I had a difficult time grasping Victory Roads for some reason even though I've been playing war games for about 40 years.

I haven't played Next War Korea but it looks good.

Picked up GMT's The US Civil War by Mark Simonitch.

Looks like a combination of the old Civil War by Victory Games and For the People by Mark Herman.

Already in the lineup for Vassal play after my current game of Paths of Glory.
