   Under a blazing North African Springtime Sun, Rommel gets ready to bounce Tobruk (he's not "in" this scenario as himself at all so I stuck his "influence this turn" counter out there with a tree for shade; he's there but he's not helping things):

Good stuff...  I have three BCS titles, but frankly haven't had time to learn the system.

However, I do take them out from time to time and loving go through the contents of the boxes...:)

My other problem is that I have to find someone to play with. My regular gaming group is not very into hardcore wargames.

  I have Brazen Chariots (basically Tobruk '41) and Baptism by Fire (basically Kasserine Pass)  I guess I'll get Arracourt (which is more or less just Arracourt).  The SNAPFUs make the
system work well solitaire -- at least for me.  The system emphasizes busting up formations (Brigades, Combat Commands and KGs -- Brigements in Rifle and Spade system terms) and that
really takes several activations and a lucky (or unlucky) break or two.  So the interactions are more abstract than they look.

PS and what's a SNAPFU?  Situation normal all pretty fucked up?  Well in the game system they can spell SNAFU; so that's a good sign.

No bounce -- so to keep things mobile each side gets two motorized formations -- Support Group and the 4th Indian Bde for the Imperialists and Trento and KG Herff for the Axis at Dawn on the 13th (when historically the support group and some of Trento could have turned up:
