I'm surprised by the rather primitive nature of the components. See my review for details: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/442581

The MMP edition takes the rating from a 9 to a 10.

Initially this seems to improve Bloodbowl - but with repeated plays Bloodbowl is actually a better game without the expansion.

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.

Surprisingly tense bidding game - it doesn't take many points to win - you have to be careful not to spend too much and it is quite difficult to work out the real value of the cards as you are bidding.

This is an exciting and tense game. You can win as the Soviet and feel as though you have been slaughtered or lose and the German and feel quite dominant.

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.

If I am going to play with blocks (and I really enjoy some block games) I want area movement or point-to-point movement - hexes just don't seem to work.

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.

My initial impression is that it may be quite difficult for the US to do well.

This has been confirmed upon repeated plays - but the US can win, it is just hard work.
