The key to the game is to be have your hotel chains taken over so that you have a good cash-flow. Good as an introductory game - quick enough to get two games into a session. Top game!

The first time you play it, it all seems a little strange - especially the idea that you need to be TAKEN OVER to get a good cash flow. The second time you play everything flows really smoothly.

This has borrowed many of its mechanisms from Civilization - one might even call it a clone of Civilization - but Civilization is much better, IMHO.

This game, and system, are really showing their age. They are okay as either a basic introduction to wargame concepts, or a quick-play game. They do not effectively simulate battles. They are fine as games.

In general, I don't believe that blocks and hexes really work well togther. Block games with area movement or a point-to-point system seems to work better.

This is an interesting situation. The Germans don't have a lot of men to cover the entire front-line. However, the U.S. forces have limited supplies and can only make a small number of attacks each turn.

Michael Schacht designs delight me. This is no exception. It plays really quickly, requires good planning and, like all Schacht designs, you can never do everything you want to in a single turn. You have to make tough decisions all the time.

Although all components are written in German it is very easy to play, even if you have no understanding of the German language. If anything, it makes it rather fun to learn a bit of German in the process of the game.

This is one slick card game. After having played Avalon Hill's Naval War for some time this was a real step in the right direction. More complexity, more uncertainty and more fun.

You roll a dice to see how many action you have (Fog of War). In regards to defensive cards you can choose to play in as an area defense or keep it in your hand to stop a specific attack.

Super game for six players.

It serves its function perfectly - it is a great game to introduce non-wargamers to wargaming. Its beauty is that there are only small forces for each side so it is easy for new-comers to deal with a smaller-than-normal number of decisions-per-turn for this type of game.

For a quite old game this plays great. There is tension due to the victory conditions - a draw is a possibility.

This is a beautiful deck of cards - but how does it deserve a separate entry. It is not a game - it is a deck of cards.

As a follow up, the more I use this deck the more that I like it.

Never-the-less, read my review http://www.boardgamegeek.com/article/2005699#2005699 for more details.

Even now, I am working on a session report for this game.

This is a super game. It has elements of Backgammon in the strategy as you try to position your space ships in such a way as to restrict the movment and production of the opponent while, at the same time, trying to maximise your own production.
