V1 of the T2K timeline is the only one i will consider, for a number of reasons.

1. I love the front cover of the box, every time i see it i fall in love with the game.

2. V1 is the timeline i grew up with, for better or worse its the only one i will consider.

3. If i had to look at another time line for a group, i'd go with whatever the current world wide situation was, add 6 months of time (to allow me to make up and project things going from bad to worse), and start from there.

For example, currently i'd say the Ukraine and Russia get into it. IS starts beheading people in public places of capital cities throughout the world (which was there current plan in Australia this week, i believe) , Scotland rebels against the UK, etc ... and drop the players in there.

When I discovered t2k, it was v1. Which is partly why I love it. The only other time line I'd use would be modified v1 or rewind to the late 70's and start ww3 during the cold war.

Ancestor again - forgot that I already voted but I'm now running a homebrew: V1 but set in 2030 (Soviet Union is Russia, Belorus, Ukraine; WP is Soviet Union, Hungary, a couple of the stans, plus the PIGS of Europe). War started with Sino-Soviet war over Siberian resources, then spread to Europe.

I just love the doom of V.1. I also run some modified rules (V.1 skill and individual combat, hybrid V.1/V.2 character gen, and then for mass combat I use a Russian game called "Art of Tactic"). My boys grew up on Memoir 44 and D&D V.4 so lots of hexes and miniatures, so it became a good way to introduce T2K to them.

Just bought the v1 core books. Agree it's the best of the timelines.

I've grown to like them all. You can convert Paul's stuff to V1 easy enough.

im still a noob as far as actually playing the game goes. im getting fairly familiar with the setting, but i learn by doing, the same way i did with I.C.E. cyberspace, AD&D v2, original Traveler, and West End Games Star Wars v2. the t2k v1 books do a decent job explaining the mechanics, but there isnt a single play example. all the stats for characters, weapons, equipment, and vehicles make sense, but i need to see them at work.

They did a V1 example in Challenge Magazine, marauders attempt to take a barn with some soldiers in it.

As I've been playing the game off and on since it first came out I'm over the old timelines and prefer to play in a contemporary setting
