My main collection of WW1 is from XTR many games on the subject. This one is quite good in my book. I look forward to play this upon revival of the general interest in this. Cool man, after all, this is about the last war on aristocracy...!

The game is reprinted in 2014 as "1914: Glory's End", GMT dual pack new edition (together with another Command magazine "When Eagles Fight"). 1914: Glory's End plays, in my view, much better than Ted's later design on the same campaign - Grand Illusion (published by GMT as well). Glory's End is more traditional and thus more classic than Grand Illusion. It is WWI well done right and a game luminous of retrospection in itself.

Impressive little and overlooked game. It provides a lot of insight in the campaign without being bogged down in endless rules. At times it feel a little bit broad brush, and I would like to have divisions rather than corps, but the game is quite good anyway. Having corps instead of divisions forces you in an higher level mindset.

what I appreciate is the way it always put you on the divide between XIX and XX century warfare.

A good corps level game covering the opening offensives in the West in 1914. Rules are clear with just enough chrome covering the extras like German siege artillery This basic design makes it a good introductory game.

Very good game on the opening move of WWI.
The rules are well written We had fun playing it and sometime we will try the free set-up scenario.
We made the historical set-up scenario.
Verdun was taken and the front stabilize in the North of France around Game turn 8 (maubeuge Arras). Not easy for the German but everything was possible.
We also played the Marne scenario with an automatic German victory (one hex of Paris was taken).

Lack of ZOC's seems unusual for a WWI game, but units may not attack if they have moved (unless using Mobile Assault, or whatever MA stands for ). This slows things down nicely. The Germans seem to ooze, rather than march through Belgium about a third of the way through the game. But have only had 2 plays so far. Quite good!

Fun playing game that is very mobile. The Germans can make it to Paris quickly if the Allies are reckless. A definite "beer & pretzels" game that has replay value. I actually took Verdun in one game as the Germans; on my way to Paris! Counters start disappearing quickly as the toll mounts for both sides. Stalemate then ensues as both sides get exhausted and protect what remains.

When it is your turn to send a VASSAL move, the wait is excruciating. When it's my turn, well, I've been busy.

A lot of movement for a WWI game, right up until the shovels come out. Never did care much for XTR's multiple counter step reduction solution, but it worked.

Another solid Command game, with excellent counters/map, and a classic situation. Easy to play, with good replay value, and the only quibble I found was that the replacement counter mechanic got laborious after a dozen turns or so (take a hit, flip, take another, change to weaker counter, take a replacement, change to stronger counter, et al).

This games is nicely playable. The supply rules seem a bit harsh and you can take a severe setback by a few misplaced units.

I enjoyed solitairing this, despite the problem that I couldn't fool myself with "dummy counters."

It is a big long however. Like most Raicer games, very tough to actually finish, even though the time spent playing is well spent. I just lose interest eventually when the trenches begin to spread.

Still, a fun 1914 game. The corps, with 4 steps each, feel like big beefy corps, and the attrition feels very WWI-like yet there is a lot of movement across the map. Would play again. Gorgeous map, much prettier than the usual bland Simonitch fare of the era. Compare and contrast with the 1918 map and hideous 1918 counters!

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?

Basic hex and counter magazine game. Good stuff but nothing that will overly impress. Rules do have a few holes that common sense can correct.
