    Brand new and hot off the press is part two of the first play of O Group, tank on tank action, loads more rules mistakes, what more do you need?

    Useful indeed, thank you for the 2 vids.  I had wondered how it played, and it seems there is a little more maneuver than in your typical CoC game, with the panther being a bit better.

    Cheers, I am glad you found them useful. Yeah, there is a lot more manoeuvre, and the action switches about, depending on where you are issuing orders and where things are hotting up. I think the Panther being better is due to the more abstracted rules for firing with tanks. In CoC there are quite a few outcomes which can lead to a tank being KOed, like jamming the wheels/turrets, crew suffering shock, etc. As these are representing multiple tanks, the firing effect is less granular, so they are either shocked, damaged or KOed. In hindsight, I should have used smoke to get three of the Shermans behind the Panther and then would have had a better chance at brewing it up. Lessons learned…
