Hi all, I thought I would copy this thread from the CO2 Dev Forum just to keep you abreast of development work we are doing. This is just one of the issues we have been working our way through recently. I'm aiming to release a new dev build 5.1.30 by the end of the week. If the testers come back with the all clear then we'll aim to get out a release version for you all to update your game engine and modules. Dave O'Connor... This is a copy of thread from the private CO2 Dev forum. It focuses on the recent work we've been doing to resolve an issue with resupply....

This newly revised edition comes complete with new maps, counters and updated rules. Test your strategies and outthink your opponent, using infantry...

Here is LnLP Official Heroes of the Motherland v2.0 Vassal Module. Attached are several screenshots. These show off the new custom UI buttons on the toolbar, which use graphics directly from the LnLT games in some cases, and they are all bigger and flashier than the stock Vassal graphics. Additional things to look for is our new counter look, now with rounded corners and light shading. The maps and counters are all larger hi-res digital images designed to match the boardgame contents, which...

Jo, been hard at work getting the Tank On Tank Digital edition ready for Steam and has added Achievements to the game.
Hi Guys, One biggest thing I am always asked is if there will be a Mac version of Command Ops 2, my first hope is YES, but for the time being, I play Command Ops 2 on my Mac Pro with a great product know as Parallels. I can run Windows edition 7 through 10. on my Mac with Parallels. I then run Steam or the game of my choice. Of all the ways to run Windows on a Mac, Parallels Desktop is my favorite because it just...
Patton’s Charge expansion for Command Ops 2 is coming later this summer and covers a series of operation conducted along the Western front in late 1944/early 1945.

Patton’s Charge will have 12 scenarios covering the more significant battles of this famous campaign, including Operation Nordwind, Nancy, Metz, the Saar...

I love board games and tabletop wargames, the problem is finding someone else who shares an interest in the hobby, and then finding the time to play against them. My wife is my only regular gaming partner, but, understandably, her tastes in a theme are a bit more limited than mine. Tactical wargaming just isn’t her thing. Or on the flip side, it might be exactly her thing and bring out her extremely competitive side, getting me in trouble if my Sherman scored a lucky hit on her Tiger....
Lock ‘n Load Tactical: Heroes of Normandy was one of my favorite purchases last year. I loved it so much that I made sure it was something I played on my birthday (my son enjoyed it too). I’ve held off reviewing the game, though, because shortly after it arrived on my doorstep last year it went out of print. With a reprint due at the end of the first quarter of 2017, likely in March, and because those who place...

Hello and welcome to Tank on Tank! In this article we're going to talk about those lovable, foot-slogging grunts, the infantry. "But wait!" you say, "Why would I want infantry units in a game about tanks? Aren't infantry the slowest and weakest units in this game?" Well, yes and no. The board game does not provide many infantry units, compared to the number of armored units available. Naturally, this limits their usefulness simply due to a lack of numbers. Tank on Tank does include...

Here is another Tank On Tank series review by Maurice Fitzgerald over at Club Fantasci.
We have been playing with the counter design after counter design for the World At War 85 series, and I have come to the place where using such small counters is just a bad idea. It was too small in the original WaW design and do it again would be just plain foolish. I know some gamers are going to be upset, and the blame for this change rests totally with me. To put it simply the original counter size is just too small to have that many numbers on it and be able to read the numbers....

Larry and I came up with the following options below. Please note we do have limited supplies so this will only be available while...

Last weekend I saw something at Pueblo Guns and Ammo store that sparked my interest. The occasion was our 20th anniversary and I was looking for a little something extra for my wife Tara. What I came across was a 100,000-volt, pocket/purse-sized taser. The effects of the taser were supposed to be short lived, with no long-term adverse affect on your assailant, allowing her adequate time to retreat to safety....? WAY TOO COOL! Long story short, I bought the device and brought it home. I...
