Looking for something else, this video popped up on my 'suggested videos' sidebar

Oh, I can.

Did one "on stage" for years.

I tend towards the cut-glass Oxford, though.

As to the merits, DVG needs to knock off its extras.  They're absolutely no good at it.  The bullet dice are -- I mean this -- the worst extra ever provided in a game and the brass nick-knacks are no better.

Card quality?  Yeah, not great.

Board layout?  The real design flaw here is convincing people this game works at 125 points.  That number is crazy.  Eleven location card?  No thanks.

Not enough dice?  Probably true for the simple boxed set, but, if memory serves, the big box came with extra dice.  Generally, though, I think it's a fair criticism of the game that not enough comes in the small box.

I've got the ammo box version and really, really like this game for what it is.
