Flames of War Third Edition (2)

Flames of War third edition is here! To the left you can see the new soft cover third edition core rulebook. It's page-for-page identical to the upcoming hardcover version only in a smaller more portable format. Being old with bad eyes I'll probably still be buying a hardcover version, but it's nice to have this one now so I can brush up on the new rule changes (using my reading glasses of course).

The new rule book has a lot more diagrams and on first glance seems to be an improvement even in areas where the rules are identical  to version two. I'll give more feedback once I read the whole thing and play a couple warm-up games using the new rules.

The best part of all is you can get the soft cover rule book for free just by bringing in your hardcover second edition to your local store. They'll put a veteran's sticker in your book and give you the new book for free! Below is a photo of my V2 veterans sticker as well as a photo of the softcover book beside the V2 hardcover so you can compare the size difference between the two.

I don't have a local shop to visit but I sent BF my address and my copy is being mailed to me this week. I'm pretty damned impressed by the customer service.

It just made the game even better to play. The new air support rules play really well and was a lot of fun in our first V3 game. Big improvement.
