Operational Combat Series

You are a guest

Dean Essig and The Gamers pretty much brought operational-level wargames to their current popularity with his OCS rules. I missed out on all the early parts of it's history, and have yet to get a lot of experience with the system, but it is an ambitious and flexible design, with some very interesting points, and an emphasis on supply consumption. It's supposed to be able to handle WWI, but no titles for that period have emerged yet. What has come out has been nicely diverse, and attracted a strong following.
