That was the Christmas present to myself last year.  Unfortunately, it hasn't yet made it to the table.  Nightfighter Ace got in the way.

IT'S NOT CHRISTMAS YET! You put that present back under the tree and re-wrap it young man.  >:(  And then clean your room.

Well...I've given it to my wife to wrap. I was tempted though to keep the rule book out  :))

at the very first glimpse only seeing the chits  i thought you had finally found a affordable copy of  "Where There Is Discord: War in the South Atlantic" with the Falkland thematic

but I like to read your AAR of this one also  O0

Enjoy  the upcoming  holidays :)

I really would like Where There is Discord...but I'm holding off with the optimistic view that a 3rd reprint will be created.

Hell damn yeah, JD!   <:-)

I got this one as part of this series' 3-pack White Dog had on offer, along with N: The Napoleonic Wars, and Don't Tread On Me.


Haven't punched them yet, much less read the rules.  Fortunately both of those undertakings don't appear to be too lengthy. 

Have heard good things about these solitaire games.   O0  If you beat me to playing it, which is likely due to all the sales hauls I've recently picked up, then let us know how it went!

Ben Madison does a great job with these games. Gorbachev: The Fall of Communism is his latest one that still need to pick up.

Any game that has Breznev and Sinatra's faces in it, has to be good.
