    Hello, I bought the box "Open Fire" of the miniature wargame "Flames Of War". I would like to know if some of you have played or are playing this game?

    Just let me know :)

    Hi, I am a new Flames Of War player. I have played just twice but I really like this game. I created a little group of people interested in World War II wargaming and a few are interested in playing Flames Of War.

    If you live near Montreal, Canada just let me know :)

    Some friends of mine play. I haven't. How about a brief review of the game? Might attract some more attention to it.

    Finally, I dont play anymore. Too expensive and I prefer games like Axis & Allies.

    There is a local boardgames store that has a gameroom in the back which almost always houses at least one FoW game. The game looks visually appealing, but it seems like a group of modellers came up with a quick game system. There were some 200 models on the table, when you factor in the paints, scenery, terrain, and buildings, there was obviously thousands of dollars on the table.

    For me, the game system must be utterly mind blowing to justify that output. If you expect a huge amount of time and money from me, then hand me a tape measure to play, I'm just not interested.

    I'm a big Global War fan (as you can see by my other threads) though I play it on Tabletop Simulator. Its like Axis&Axis and is clearly descended from it, but it adds so many more aspects to the game, including a lot more flexibility over the first few turns!
