    Third Party Reviewer Rate of Publication Question

    So I am curious. Imagine an "average" third party reviewer in terms of public reach (blog, website, Facebook, GS, etc.) and, perhaps more importantly, number of associates of that reviewer who are willing to playtest new releases. What rate of publication for that reviewer would make you start...

    Red October conversion to TCS, Omaha Beach

    Is anyone anticipating - or actively working - on a project that would involve 'converting' the new Red Factories to the TCS system? Come to that, is there any hardy soul who has played both the Critical Hit Omaha Beach module, and the TCS version? I'd be interested in a compare/contrast of...

    ASL W2: The Front in Flames

    Played as Russian against Dasvadonya. Tight game, no casualty VP until the last Player Turn and only because I advanced into CC for fun. Scooped the victory location in the last player turn for the win. Lots of decision making on both sides re: shoot or move.

    Tips to designers for attracting playtesters

    Some recent posts here got me thinking about the best way to attract playtesters. I mentioned to Jeff and Dave the difficulties of 'nobodies' attracting people to test, meaning those who haven't been published or aren't well-known in the community.

    Singling CG - U.S. armor reinforcement errata?

    Singling errata question (cross posting from FB) - on page Z61, the entry on table 3.7 (armor reinforcement types), the entry for "11-12" indicates "2xM4A3(75);M4A3" - should this actually say "2xM4A3(75)W;M4A3" (i.e. add a W)? The vanilla M4A3 already has a 75mm gun. There is no official...
