Wow, what a game. Very tense and thematic. This was only the first mission and pretty tame compared to the others. I did get the expansion so overall there are 72 missions total with 3 situations briefings. No one mission will ever play out the same way. I could go into a lot more detail about the mission.... but not enough space here.


Testing iPad with user made maps of the original.

I purchased and played this this game almost 30 years ago.

Seriously considering grabbing a new copy (as rats ate the old one that was stored in a closet in my garage).

they may be in short supply after Bill Gibbs passed away 4-5 years ago

Ordered my copy New, with redone components and expansion.  Received in about 1 week.  http://www.omegagames.com/omega/do/home/home

Still going strong from the post at BGG and my experience.  Doubt there will be any further development, but who knows.

Ordered a new one from Omega about a year or two ago.  Although it took about 3-4 weeks to show up.

I wonder when the current stock will run out.
