Some gamers believe that you CAN’T possibly play Combat Commander solo. As my late father always told us “Can’t never could.” So while many of us (who recognized the superiority of Chad Jensen’s premier WW2 Tactical Wargame) did in fact manage to play the game solo with no hindrances at all (except of course the ones on the battlefield), it’s quite possible that there COULD be a better way to do it…
And now there most certainly is. James Watton of Rising Sun Studios has come up with an ingenious system for an AI CC:BOT to play against and keep some of the mystery in the game.
How does it work? Join me as I demonstrate how to setup the CC:BOT for a game and how a typical AI turn plays out.

Are the files available somewhere other than BGG?
Unfortunately, not at the moment… Send me an email (link above) and I’ll get you a copy.
Hi Kevin, always enjoy your videos. I enjoy Combat Commander and especially the CC bot video. I have one question. You did not show a complete example of the opponent taking a turn. When it is your turn and the bot wants to play a card ex. You are moving, does the bot have to make an order check first? Or does the bot just get a card from the dummy deck and see if it can succeed an action track roll? Then go right to the table. I am confused. If the bot has to do an order check first then the black dice moves the specific chip to the next space. Which may not apply to what the bot intended to do on the table ie. Hidden mines or wire. The chip may land on artillery request. It would make more sense that the bot doesn’t do an order check but only an action check. If successful it looks at black dice to decide action selection. I f there is a choice ex. Hidden wire or hidden mines. Then rolls for target success. Hope this is clear. I look forward to your response. Rick
Sorry Rick for the delay in seeing this. I will have to play again soon to try to answer your question. The designer is very good at answering questions as well if you’re still over on Board Game Gulag.
I dont find it on BGG but I am not real familiar with that site. I know i need to be. Can you send me a link please?
