Just played a test game with an 11 year old and I must say even with the rulebook next to us the game seems to flow nicely and one doesn't have too many instances where the rulebook is required.
Which is a good thing , I will rate the game after a few more plays and update this section.

5-8-12 - Rated 8

After 2 plays I am rating this one the same as Memoir 44 in regards to it's base game. If you like Mechs, then this one has some real potential. Could go up or down from here depending on my future plays, expansion releases, etc.

Pros:
Awesome units, lots of potential to add more. Liked the weapons system and wildfire card interaction as they can really throw a wrench in the best of plans. The luck factor is present, but I think it keeps the game interesting and fun. The 4-player option could be a blast. I liked the different LOS mechanics. Liked that some scenarios allowed for customized unit placement and different objectives to win.

Cons:
The terrain tiles have no effect other than immpassable terrain that blocks LOS. With a ranged fire range of 5, the board seems a little small at times.

5-12-12 - Rated 8.25
Upping my rating slightly after 5-6 plays. A light fun game. My 11 year old daughter said she likes rolling the dice. She will play this game. Won't play Mem 44.

7-4-12 - Rated 8.5
Still having fun with this game. The 3 and 4 player scenarios are great fun with two players as well..

Really enjoyable war game. The miniatures that came with the game are absolutely awesome even if there are only four types. Scenarios are short, game play is reasonably straightforward and really well balanced. Alot of this game ends up being decided by luck (which combat cards you have and what units you roll on the activation dice) but this helps to keep it fresh and interesting rather than allowing a player to perfect a winning formula every time.

A nice variation on the C&C system. You can see where Abaddon and Memoir 44 share a common ancestor, but their family trees branched off in different directions. A little more chaotic than most C&C games, but fun and flavorful.

If you are looking for a fun, fast, furious Sci-Fi themed game with lots of dice and cards, look no further! This game has it all! Specialty dice, LOTS of cards, Giant Robots, destroyed landscape, plus loads of conflict. Best of all, as already stated, it's great fun! Pick up a copy and see what I mean. No one does dice and card driven games of conflict better than Richard Borg.

A SciFi iteration of C&C - no zones, movement and activation dice driven, cards for combat. Looks like FFG Battles of Westeros cut down in some way. production mainly good, rules a bit awkward in places - define grid zones for example - we are going for the 4 squares around the little diamonds. Line of sight rules a bit odd, and we played them 'wrong' using a ruler. Still good fun.

Beautiful game pieces that begged to be painted. Game design by Richard Borg. Relatively straightforward rules that are deep on strategy. Random elements provided by dice that creates a balance for newer players. What more could I ask for?

Very nice tactical wargame with dice driven actions and combat. Underrated in my opinion, this is light wargaming done right.

Better than expected. Nice variant on the card and dice activation system by Borg from other games like M44 or C&C:A. Simple rules but plenty of theme and I can see this game being expanded with additional sets and scenarios. The minis are nice and lend themselves to painting.

Early rating after a couple of plays.

On the plus side, the game is simply fun. We had a bang-up four player session that led to a lot of laughs, and left the outcome in doubt till the very end. The Mech figures are very well formed, although a sharper contrast in size and shape of the various types would be welcome, at least for newbies.

On the minus side, the components other than the figures are functional at best - the terrain features are laughably bad standups in a game with nice figures - and the component storage is as bad as I've ever seen. The line of sight rules will bother many - you can only see along hex rows, so you may be unable to fire at a unit in open terrain two squares away, while one 8 squares away on a diagonal is perfectly visible.

Altogether the game is an odd mix, with similarities to the commands and colors series, but in a sci-fi setting. The combat rules aren't difficult, but the rules make something of a muddle of describing the differences between direct fire, indirect fire and melee.

All carping aside, we did have fun. Then again, nobody has asked to play again either. The jury is out; I'll update my comments should we get a few more plays.

Another very good game for Richard Borg. Similar to Memoir '44 and Battlelore, but simpler and faster than both of them. Furthermore it supports 4 players just out of the box, without the need of two copies of the game like his predecessors. Mostly of all, it is fun to play.

TRADE INTEREST: HIGH

I have this listed for trade because I know I will want to trade it eventually (I want to play it a few more times first). I don't think that I will need both this and BattleLore2.

I've played scenarios #1-6.

Got it, looks good and can't wait to try it out.
I have sprayed the Figs with a black undercoat and will give them all a quick metalic silver dry brush and need to decide on colors. Will put up pics once they're done.
