Funny this thread was started cause I literally JUST got the complete Laby set.
Played the tutorial and its excellent, but time consuming.

Next up is to take the game to my old man and learn it together. Fun times ahead!

I have IAF Leader but I play it only occasionally.

Not enough to get the expansions.
I do try to keep my Warfighter modern collection complete, however.

I have a partially punched but nearly new copy of Paths of Glory I could let go if you're interested.  I was going to try to sell it, but honestly it's not worth that much money.  If you'll cover the shipping you can have it if you want it.

PM sent

Always remember #1: Hornet Leader has a Matrix port.

#2: it has a terrible UI and at least one game-breaking bug (last time I tried to play it years ago).

#3: you can lead Hornets (et al) against Cthulhu.  :D :notworthy:

I finished a WW1 computer campaign and wrote an AAR for it (Strategic Command WW1).  I have the updated computer game - unplayed.

I'm pretty sure I have Commander: The Great War for the PC - unplayed.

I have those, too, but just haven't been able to bring myself to play them. (...despite spending actual money on them, including on the recent remake of StratComWW1.  #:-) ) Any such game that doesn't allow stacking has a big strike against it, that I am only occasionally able to overcome.

Labyrinth is definitely NOT MUCH  like the COIN game system. It's a rather more complicated version of the TwiStrug engine.

For the same topic on COIN, you want A Distant Plain.

I own the early access of Lab on PC, and I'm finding it a lot harder to grasp than TwiStrug. Not that I'm complaining, but I look at it and think, man, my limited ergs should be spent toward playing something else.  :buck2:

Note that while TwiStrug on PC (and crossplay on other devices) runs flawlessly, the DLC addition which allows some pre-turns with extra cards to generate alternate setups, arrived broken and has been abandoned. But the main release contains most of the alternate game modes, and they run fine as far as I've ever been able to tell. (Perhaps with newly reforged ties to porting GMT's boardgame stable, Playdek or Asmodee or whoever they are will come back to fix the TwiStrug DLC, or have done so already...?)

A Distant Plain is an excellent COIN game.  If anyone wants to give the Labyrinth computer game a go, drop me a PM.  I'm actually curious to see how well it ported over from the boardgame.
