Book 2 space combat & Mayday are two variations on the same game. I'm wondering about the pros & cons of the differences.

Of course using counters for vectors instead of string or wire is hardly worth mentioning. As is using hexes instead of a ruler. You could easily use hexes & counters with Book 2 or string & ruler with Mayday. I think I have a good grasp on the pros & cons of those choices.

And the simplified computer rule in Mayday is tempting to use with Book 2.

The more interesting differences I noticed were the very different scales & that it seemed that missile hits were handled differently. Any comments on these or other differences?
