I managed to pick up World in Flames – Final Edition: Deluxe off eBay. I wasn’t sure I wanted to get it, and honestly didn’t expect to win the auction but lo and behold I did! Yet… I’m not sure what to think. Honestly, what have I gotten myself into?
Lots of punching and clipping!
Alas, it is true. I’ve become a clipper. I couldn’t reason with myself to get the $40 tool despite how nice it looks, it just cut too deep into my limited hobby budget so I found a great tutorial on BGG, which you can find Here - Thanks William for your insight!
With a majority of the units punched and clipped (I realize it is not a necessity but was watching some good movies and found it timely) I’m now ready to possibly, maybe jump into World in Flames. So what does it look like all laid out? Let’s find out…
World in Flames – All Maps!
And that’s where I got the title for this… what in the world have I gotten myself into? This thing is MASSIVE. Granted, I know there are some that are larger in physical size, such as The Devil’s Cauldron/Where Eagles Dare combined, as well as Case Blue and DAK2, but you can’t find those for what I got World in Flames: Final Edition – Deluxe for on eBay. This costs a fraction of those two combinations mentioned, takes up a smaller footprint, and probably rivals playtime. Of course, the small Barbarossa scenario is simply one map, Eastern Europe, but it was cool seeing this thing all setup.
That’s all I’ve got for now. Going to head downstairs and get some Leros, The Blitzkrieg Legend, and the Barbarossa scenario setup on my table, all one mapper scenarios. Most likely will dive into The Blitzkrieg Legend first as I want to try out the OCS system, and see if I like it.
Thanks all if you’ve made it this far – lot of pictures. Just wanted to share how cool this game looks. No idea when I’ll get to it.
