I'm just curious to know if anyone has come across any videos that give a review or an example of game play regarding the GHQ rule set for GHQ's WWII Micro Armour The Game? I have searched youtube and done a general search on google and I have not come across any. I can find examples of game play for other rule sets such as Bolt Action.

Back in my day, youngster, we didn't need no stinking YouTube video to learn how to play a game. We read the rules.
Kids today.

In my young day, we only read the rules if nobody in the group had already. Otherwise, we just went with what the one who had read them remembered.

There are 'quick start' pdf's of the various GHQ games. Hope that helps… ;-)

I don't think those rules are used much any more. Probably 20+ years old? They are pretty simple though.

Rules, you guys had rules? Why, in my day, we only had guidelines, and had to make it up as we went along. Whippersnappers, alla yuze!

Interesting that GHQ are charging for the paper copy of the rules, when the pdf version is free on Wargame Vault.

And get off his lawn, kid!

The problem today is the time it takes to mess around with a set of rules, trying to see how they play and hold up. Life is just too busy today than 20+ years ago.

They are not played much, but if someone likes playing them I'm cool with that.

If the TOE's are free, they are very nice for any game.

These are a very good, not overly complex set of rules.
The rules give a pretty realistic result (I've only gamed EastFront battles) with straight forward common sense procedures.
The concepts of pre-planned artillery fire, opportunity fire and overwatch fire work very well and force one to plan like a battalion commander if you want to win.
The basic rules required for playing a game (no paratroop landings, amphib. landings, city fights, etc.) can be easily learned in an hour. Download them and give it a try. You won't be disappointed.
