Yes I’m no tournaments fan myself – if you want a fair evenly balanced games to pit your wits and nothing else against an opponent, then I can’t see how chess can be improved upon – but if it brings more people into the Cold War period, well and good. You don’t have to stick to the points system if you’re having a ‘historical’ game with a like minded opponent…and I rarely do when playing Flames of War. I just like the simplicity of the rules and the authenticity of the overall outcome, without having to invest too much bandwidth into administering the rules. It sounds as if Team Yankee will be even simpler…
