Thanks for starting the thread Marcus. I probably should have had you on the beta testing team.

What do you think of the game so far? (From what you can see of the trailers)

Cheers,
Woodie

Musket Smoke looks fun, but sad to see it is multiplayer only...

The main focus is multiplayer, but it also has AI skirmish maps for solo training as well. Plus an interactive tutorial that shows you how to kill, flank and use your units co-operatively.

Playing random players is like having access to many many flavours of AI. If you don't like to wait, just create more games. Eventually you should find someone that takes turns at a fast enough pace.

I love hex based war games, but probably won't play if there isn't a single player campaign of some sort other than skirmish maps.

Have you tried the new Civil War II game? That one went the other way and removed on device multiplayer.

It seems easier than the first Civil War game.

But the thing is, that video of Musket Smoke makes it look really fun. Shame that it needs another human.

The skirmish maps and the AI is all free. Likewise, the online async 10 on 10 battle via Mini Matches is also free.

I'm pretty much giving away the farm on this one. Zero risk to downloaders.

If the game somehow grabs you, and you find you like it more than you expected - then you have the option to expand it by getting the online campaign.

I really don't want your money if you don't love this game. How perfect is that?
