What You Think

Scott R. Gross (SRGross@msn.com)
I would be very thankful for any updates for the game. I really loved the game when I was first introduced to it in the late 70's. I currently have the 4th Ed., but am looking for updates, new charts, and ways to speed up the game. I have been trying to create a database to cover armour penetration values and damage, to speed up the game some!
