Thanks to David Hughes who submitted several BEDA FOMM rules questions regarding infiltration movement and attacking more than a single defending hex. Just for fun (and to see how quickly we could create a screencast on the fly), we decided to answer David's questions with this screencast. We hope you enjoy it! [view all screencasts]
Let us know what you think of this introductory screencast we've created in support of BEDA FOMM. If you like this informal approach (akin to someone stepping you through a game), we look forward to creating future clips that we promise will be much shorter in duration and focused on specific game mechanics. Future screencasts can also touch upon game tips and player strategy. What topics would you like to see covered in future screencasts? [view all screencasts]

We've updated the download link since version 1.01 has just been released. This update includes a separate tab for the charts/tables view, which is a great addition so you don't have to pan the game map to see the charts. Instead, you can now keep your focus on the right part of the map and just click the Charts tab to resolve combat, etc.
