Coming into the discussion a litle late due to Time Zones.....but...

At CANCON this year we played the interlinked scenarios of SG and FT
the three days. Two games parralleled what you are suggesting VERY

In our case the FT battle determined how many dropships would managed to
deploy, therefore dictating how many troops and vehicles would land to
participate in the ongoing ground war!

After our play testing and 'brain storming' we decided that concurrent
really weren't satisfactory. As someone has pointed out, SG game turns
a lot longer in most games to play through than FT. Swapping from FT to
back to FT tends to break the continuity of the game but does allow some
people to play in both games if so inclined!

What would be wonderful to do but is likely impractical is keep the FT
players totally isolated from the SG players and play out the SG game in
morning and then the FT midday then another SG game in the
and finallya FT game to finish!

I'd like to see the AAR in any case!
