computerwargames: A place to discuss PC/Mac/Console/Mobile Wargames without miniatures
A computer based wargaming community where miniatures are virtual, no painting necessary, and rulesets/opponents are often handled by the cpu! Hex and chits still apply.
I decided to try playing a wargame as this category of games has forever interested me. I bought TOAW IV and tried playing the smaller scenario, but even this seems far too overwhelming. How does one manage the complexity? I start the scenario up and have no idea what to do, what the first task is supposed to be, when and what to attack etc. Is there any introduction or general tutorial on how to play games like these?
