Rumors are afloat that Tactica II – AKA Tactica 2000, which tells you how long people have been waiting for this – is finally about to be published.

Believe it when I see it in my hands.

I hear that every year for the past 18 years

Coopman and Clifford have it.

Perhaps we could have a poll. Or a sweepstake.

The second coming of Tactica? I'm not sure what Arty is thinking but this game is his first love so maybe he's looking for perfection or as close as he can get.

I love Tactica in its original form with the amendments from the Courier (Tactica 1.5 ?) using the lists from Armati as a guide for armies not covered in the rules and scenario books.

@Big Red--I second that emotion.

Been hearing this for a too long to take seriously. I'll believe when I see it.

Arty's rules have given me countless hours of fun, so trust me that I mean no disrespect, when I say that Tactica 2 is the wargames version of the never-released album in "Eddie and the Cruisers".

How soon, I do not know. But as a member of a gaming group
that knows Arty, and have play tested some of his ideas with him, I can say its very much on his mind.

How/where could I get those amendements in the courier? Would be interested!

JimSelzer14 Sep 2018 1:49 a.m. PST

they can wait until 3000 as far as I care Tactics what a waste of time

Desert Fox14 Sep 2018 4:49 a.m. PST

I would also be very interested in seeing those amendments from the courier.

Anyone have them or know where to find them?

The Tactica modifications were published in the courier around 1994. For more information, please contact me at stewartwt at g mail dot com.

This would be great news. I've now got the army list book with additional armies (purple cover) ordered. The Courier articles shed more light on this effort that was clearly ahead of its time. Let's hope that Mr. Conliffe proceeds with publication soon.
