Some reviews make this game sound like it was originaly a bit half baked. But various post production play aids and rules amends appear to have cleared things up and make this a winner.

And the fact that Leisure games have a damaged one in stock for about £44. I don't know what the damage is yet but it sounds like the box has been squashed but the contents are fine. And as I don't expect to play with the box this should be OK

GMT P500 order shipping in July. I think the theme combined with the block game fog of war mechanic are a perfect match. Also high on my to aquire list are Combat Commander: Europe (which I am trying to trade for) and the new CDG Spartacus from Compass Games.

I've read the rules on this one and I really think I'd like it. I wish it wasn't quite so expensive--it's a high price for a ziploc game. I understand the reasons for it, and I'm sure it's a fair price, but I'm still struggling. If I don't pull the trigger on this, then my next game will be...

My FLGS is holding an embarrassing number (and value) of stuff for me, including

- and soon I expect Field Commander: Alexander and Archaeology: The Card Game to join them!

But Liberia is next, thanks to all the controversy it's attracted here on BGG. I like a game that inspires a bit of passion!

I think GMT is mailing this P500 expansion to Flying Colors this week if I am not mistaken.

I have an urge for some shoot 'em ups, so I was also thinking of either Wings of War: Famous Aces else Federation Commander: Klingon Border. Not sure. Hum...haw...

I would be extremely happy if this were my next purchase.

How many games cover such an early period of BC in a wargame instead of a Euro? I already have Assyrian Wars but this is even more ancient. How about someone doing a decent game on the wars of the Persian Empire?

I'm hoping that this will be my next purchase - I love Area-Impulse games and this one, by award winning A-I designer Mike Rinella promises to be a treat.

Combined arms during World War One's twilight, with landships, those proto tanks, and German shock troops in a seesaw battle where both sides have a chance to go on the offensive.

A-I games are so full of tense choices, I love them all and this one's unique scenario is very interguing.

There are so few Area Impulse games in print, they're all sold out - it amazes me that this one doesn't rocket up the preorder list. It's numbers are good though, very good this past month, so I'm hopeful it'll hit its goal soon.

If not Cambrai, then is beauty is next on my wishlist.

New titles in this series come out once a decade it seems - and this one looks gorgeous, with hand painted maps by the series' original artist Charles Kibler.

What can I say, I'm so excited that I've taken other titles in the series off the shelf and am renewing my love affair with the system.

I still enjoy it and look forward to this new title even more.

I like the mechanics in the series that make this game playable and fun while keeping things relatively balanced. This next one should round out lots of the missing NATO and Warsaw Pact units. If all goes well, this one should be out in May or June.
