So, we pooled together our 2 box sets last night and played a 30 point game. We setup a 3 X 5 foot board of antarctic tiles and then filled the board with obstructions/buildings and hard and soft cover. This was a basic VP mission, no objectives, we just wanted to see how well it scaled up in bigger point games. We were not dissapointed. Outside of the scenario book, this game still plays so well. We did 2 games last night and the first game was kind of a slaughter for the American forces as i tried to figure out how to counter the Germans range advantage on a bigger board. The second game came right down to it, the Americans still lost, but it was a Pounder on the back edge of the table vs. 2 half squads of german infantry with a Panzershrek in each. And the last turn before they took the Pounder out, our other American player rolled horribly against the 2 squads.
We are so glad this game scales up so well, even with a slight advantage to the Germans in an open, free form game. Once the support robots hit the shelves, I think it'll balance out a bit. 2 fantastic games though, and it should keep us busy while we wait for the really good stuff to start releasing.
