Fast playing and accurate WW2 game: Roll 1d6. on a score of 1-3 the Axis lose. On a score of 4-6 the Allies win.

Speed vs Accuracy is a false dichotomy.

There are also times when I want a fast playing game because I only have a brief time to play.

POLL DESCRIPTION
Writing in Battlegames magazine, David C.R. Brown observed:
…I find that all too often, these new fast-play rules, though written with the best of motives and producing some fun games, fail to appreciate that it's not the end result of combats or battles that is important within a wargame, but how we arrive at that result. These new rule systems seem to have gone too far the other way and have simply reversed the 1980s ruleset equation by introducing speed at the expense of accuracy…
Do you agree?
