    Reminds me of board games too. My son and I play a lot of Axis and Allies (have a game going right now) which is a nice blend of realism, yet relatively simple to understand. Different ship, plane...

    Doesn't El Mod's system account for all of that? I thought it would disable the left track if the hit was from the left, etc. and you could set up a whole host of armor thicknesses vs penetration,...
