I have this game. I would *really* like to play it but I'm not sure I'm ready to invest the time to figure it out. But it was a great read and my excitement only grew about the game.

Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

Good review. Could follow the game play well. A fairly tight review too so it was an easy read with lots of good info.
My doctor wrote me a prescription for daily sex.

My wife insists that it says dyslexia but what does she know.

Definitely looks good. Has this game been VASSALized yet? Also, who was the guest reviewer? I see that he or she has a pretty extensive BGG presence.

Great review. Wish I had the money to pick it up and the time to learn it.

Wonder how he would compare it to Luftwaffe... My first real war game and still one of my favourites.

He made a rather complex game simple to understand. Very well done.

Good reviews and sounds like an interesting game.

Calling the place 'Grogheads' might not have been such a bad idea after all...

I picked this game up a few weeks ago but haven't had a chance to try it out yet.  Anyone interested in a PBEM game via VASSAL?
