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?

FINALLY A RUSSIAN FRONT GAME WHERE MINSK CAN FALL ON THE FIRST TURN AS IT DID HISTORICALLY!

Raicer is to be commended here. This is a throwback design in many ways, but one that feels not so much fresh as different from the rest of the pack. I noted that Minsk can fall on turn one. In addition the game encourages the creation of pockets. I do wish a few things were not so scripted but that might be asking too much. As it is this is the playable monster on the Eastern Front. Now when can we get scenarios for Typhoon, Uranus/Mars/Saturn, Korsun, Budapest, and Vistula 1945?

Lastly, no SS Charlemagne or Nordland but plenty of Tiger battalions? I thought this was suppose to be a complete order of battle?

Second copy pre-ordered.
This game rocks ! The chit-pull system is brilliant, keeps both players active and interested. Good map, great counters. Great development. Rule book a little odd in how it's layed out: you have some critical rules in the playbook - I would expect them to be in the rule book.

A different take on the subject. Innovative system and yet surprisingly intuitive.

Love east front games. This one is not too big and it's not too small. It is just right.

A great game with pretty simple mechanics and a clean system which hums along really nicely. Not fussy but it all works so well…the design doesn't need chrome bolted on as it just all works so well to bring about results which feel like they should. You get a real flavour of the Blitzkreig and slugfest in turns…For me too long to play the whole war using this game (for that I'd turn to No Retreat). But for the scenarios, or for using the scenarios and jumping of and on points for extended campaigns it is excellent - and I suspect how it will be most used and respected. If your at all interested in the Eastern Front of world war 2 this and No Retreat in your collection are the way to go...

In terms of scale, playability, and time, this is the best game on the Eastern Front that I've played in a long time. The rules are not complicated at all for a game of this nature, yet there is definitely a learning curve required to get the most out of the system.

One of the few Eastern Front games I've played that really gets the flow of the campaign right in 1941 - the Soviets get blown away almost wherever they defend, but still have the teeth to counterattack. The action chits do a GREAT job of modeling the changing command effectiveness in the opposing armies.

My favourite East Front game. Right up there with Across The Pacific as my favourite wargames. Playable, gives you a great feel for the East Front Campaign. Love the fact it's at a Divisional level

In the middle of my first game. Rulebook could be more helpful and better organized. I think more notes could have been added to the player aid cards as well. Ted is giving excellent support for the game here and on CSW.

Excellent feel for the eastern front so far. The Germans have to work to make Barbarossa successful, its not an 'auto' like it is in some games.

For only two maps, Ted has aligned the campaign area at an angle, thus allowing more of Russia to be shown than in most EF games. You can truly see the distance that AGS travelled as compared to AGN. In most other EF games, this is not readily apparent.

Very clever design which highlights the big encirclement battles of the summer and fall 1941.

The Red army is obliged to make usually doomed counter-attacks planned by the Stavka.

My only reproach would be about the map and counters art. I would have prefered the usual brown color for the soviet units. I try to like the map art but I don't succeed in it...

This is a truly unique take on the Russian front. I only played solo turn 1 so far, and played it badly, but this game is very, very good.

The best Eastern Front wargame I have ever played. Absolutely superb.
Chit pull system makes play exciting and unpredictable - a great boon for solitaire gamers.
Map is excellent even though some hard peering is required to pick out some set-up regions.
Counters are fine, although I would have preferred NATO symbols for armour.
The rules are a pleasure to read and are easy to follow.
The most pain-free monster game ever!

Beautiful and playable game in the old classics tradition. Streamlined play, straightforward rules, and interesting mechanics. Modified chit pull makes it a superb solo experience. (I've slightly downgraded this to a nine--not much, I know, and I still really enjoy the game, but I am kind of frustrated at the number of small but important rules, etc... that I keep forgetting! My memory is at fault, I realize, but there are a lot of early turn exceptions and special rules, and a really well-designed player aid card could help a lot here. Ted has posted one, but it feels like a rough draft to me. Nonetheless, this is a great game!)

Me está encantando este semimonster de Ted. Sólo puedo comentar la media partida en solitario que llevo.La mecánica de chits esta muy bien engranada, y la logística es sencillamente genial. De los pocos juegos que he probado, en donde estoy sufriendo por el estiramiento de mis líneas de suministro.
Las reglas, en general son sencillas y ya están testadas en otros juegos, pero aquí están colocadas y engranadas de manera magistral...( creo que me estoy pasando, se nota que me gusta mucho)
Por ponerle una pega, el tiempo de juego.....olvidaros de jugarlos en una sentada..., es un juego muy, muy largo.

Wow. This game, more than any other I have ever tried, gets the flow of the campaign basically RIGHT at every stage. Weight rating is more for how much you have to think than rules themselves.
