So my regular wargaming opponent wants to play Tanks. We both love the scale and the simplicity of the rules. The fact that you can get a full game in, in not much over 30 mins is amazing. I've already got a full 100 point US Sherman platoon and planning to get an Italian platoon as soon as possible. He's doing Germans and Russians.

The point of this thread is to ask if the game has a following here, as I've not seen any threads about it.

It would also be the type of game I could imagine playing at a tournament or other gaming event.

Anyone here playing it and if so, how popular is it in your area?

Thanks

I don't play it myself. And I suspect that it's too simplistic for most historical gamers. But even though I've never seen a game played at my FLGS, it does seem to sell product there.

The only thread about it here that I can recall is one complaining that the game doesn't have the King Tiger.

I was intrigued when it launched, and then lost interest after watching some video battle reports - that and I don't care for Battlefront most of the time. I would also agree with the poster above, if I was going to do a tank sim game I'd want far more detail than what I see in Tanks.

If you like Tanks, you might also want to Peak at What a Tanker! from Two-Fat Lardies.

Edit: i never had much of a hankering for a pure tank game.... but what I have seen looks inoffensive enough.

Not having the Königstiger is incredibly outrageous indeed!

I have just ordered a British Comet and 3 Cromwell tanks to make a 100 pt army.

I'm planning to get 3 Pershing's to go with the 5 Sherman's I already have and going to get 4 Churchill's to go with my Comet and Cromwell's. That will give me 2 200 pt forces.

I love this little game.

A full army for under £30 is pretty great. My British only cost £24.

I think one of the main selling points of the game is as a gateway into more complicated games like Flames of War or even Bolt Action.
