Possibly the best detailed, and most realistic design of this historical campaign. It is not a difficult game to play, just somewhat laden down with considerable chrome.

Very good (and not so difficult) system which highlights the particularities of this campaign (efficiency of armored divisions, atrrtion, bridgeheads across the rivers, as the Meuse, et cetera).

There is a road, no simple highway, between the dawn and the dark of night, and if you go no one may follow, that path is for your steps alone. Ripple in still water, when there is no pebble tossed, nor wind to blow.

To seek the sacred river Alph, to walk the caves of ice, to break my fast on honey dew and drink the milk of paradise... I had heard the whispered tales of immortality, the deepest mystery, from an ancient book I took a clue.

This is an easy way to understanding the early blitzkrieg in the western front, simple mechanics and should be thus good to play for beginners. Working my way through the 4th scenario as a way to get the feeling of the game mechanics.

Just received my preordered copy, looking forward to breaking it out for a spin. The premise & the situation looks interesting but we'll see...

The asymmetry really intrigues me.

A well done portrayal of the 1940 Campaign.
Some things I like - the chit draws providing variability each turn with the Germans have more flexibility. The armored/motorized units are very powerful they are your main striking forces, but begin to bleed away pretty quickly.
There is a lot of special rules - expect to be referring to the rule book. Most have an dramatic impact on the flow of the game.

The historical scenario is difficult and is best solitaire as an historical study. The Allies are hamstrung, but I like the way the Dyle plan and the Ardennes was set up in the rules. The Panzer refit and the Case Red requirements to complete the Fall of France helps capture the dilemma facing the Germans keep pushing to bag the northern armies and perhaps not have the strength to finish the job, or refit for the next phase.
For 2 player the other scenarios are better. I'd like to try Plan E where the allies only advance a bit into Belgium to hold the coast.

Well, I'm afraid it'll have to wait. Whatever it was, I'm sure it was better than my plan to get out of this by pretending to be mad. I mean, who would have noticed another madman round here?

A solid game that defines the words "medium complexity." Raicer has added some good twists to a well worn and difficult to simulate campaign.

Muy buenos componentes, para un gran juego de Ted. Sólo he probado el escenario corto y un par de turnos del escenario 2.
LLama la atención que el mapa está impreso por ambas caras para jugar los distintos escenarios.Tanto las tablas como los counters tienen la calidad GMT, esto es fantástica...
Mucho chrome, y a riesgo de ser bastante dirigido en el sentido histórico tiene un " gran sabor ".
Naturalmente habrá que probarlo más ( Dios sabe cuando..XD! ), sobre todo con los aliados, pero claro...estamos en Francia 1940, los alemanes molan más...

played once so far, passable effort to learn but the rules are fiddly enough and the play is different enough from what I'm used to that it will take a few more times to nail down a strong feel. I like it and think the historical scenario is enjoyable despite knowing the French are going to fall victim to a lot of things in the command stupidity. But that could be overcome in good play by the French player I think. It appears pretty solid fun to me.

Pretty good treatment of the campaign in the West. Like many "France 1940" games their are idiocy rules for the Allies; at least for the historical scenario. There are other versions that give the Allied player more flexibility, and a Holland scenario as an introductory/quick play game. Yes, there's some unique rules like units ignoring SOME ZOCs, and a lot of writing about river crossing/bridgeheads. Personally I like an innovative system-and this is, chit pulls and for the first time I've seen a representation of the logistics/maintenance issues the Germans had.
If you want something different, challenging instead of the same old add-up-the-factors type game try this.

Un juego muy interersante. Sólo he jugado el introductorio y el escenario histórico. Me parecen unas condiciones de victoria muy duras para el jugador alemán. Sistema de juego sencillo y dinámico, recomendable hasta para los que no han jugado antes a wargames. En 8 horas de juego se puede terminar el escenario completo.

Arrived 13/7. Simulates operation "Fall Gelb" in a very playable way. Chit pulling and the announcement of operation "Dynamo" or operation "Fall Rot" makes the turn order unpredictable and adds to the tension of the game. The better equipped, trained and led German army will destroy the Allies rather quickly but operating out of supply and having to run against time makes playing both sides interesting. Two "what if" scenarios add to the replayability of "Case Yellow". The game components are of the high, GMT quality.

Case Yellow includes the Dutch army! At last....

The current rating I have given this game is still a bit early. I've only played the historical scenario. But I really like the feel of this game. The chit system makes it very adaptable as a solo game. Map(s) and counters are very well done. Rating could change with repeated playings.

The WW2 French Campaign. I have always been looking for a playable simulation of the campaign. With Ted's medicore designing quality like Grand Illusion or uneven quality like Stalin's War before, he is my personal disappointment with my expectations towards his games. With credit like Paths of Glory, one of the best wargame designed ever regarded by the general, I tend to have high hope with his games. However, many times I feel they were over-hyped. With a traditional WW2 subject matter like Case Yellow, I am hoping this is the best game on the campaign in my book. Let's see if it delivers its own promises...if this game is sufficiently tested before release.
