<t>Another book which I loved for its detail and battle scenes was Imperial Governor by Shipway. That man was a British military officer and he makes the campaigning come alive. The outnumbered Romans are trying to stop Boudicca from the viewpoint of the Roman governor. One of my favorite fiction bo...

<t>While I am a WW1 fan and have read more than one book on the Gallipoli campaign plus a lot more on Turkish military history from Balkan Wars to the Caucasus campaigns, this game looks way too complicated to enjoy playing.<br/> I even question how much it has actually been played out? Did the revi...

I remember buying this game some years back and I never could figure out even the basics like moving units, etc. I got frustrated and never went back to it. Glad some folks liked it though.

Wonder if the society would consider PDFs for download, would eliminate the shipping then.

<t>Looks great. I am a gamer of this underplayed war but use a different rules set than yours (sorry, nothing against your set). I've read as much as I can on the war, though can't read German or Hungarian I will readily admit. <br/> However a couple of things I might bring up - I believe that the A...

<t>Nice review. You hit the nail on the head too about the price putting people off. While I am a WW1 fan and game 1914 a lot with minis, I won't be paying that much money(not even including postage) for a boardgame. Also a turnoff for me is the sheer size of the maps, taking up more space than I ha...

Thanks for the AAR, those huge games sound like a lot of fun the way you write about them. I confess the maps seem odd, the combat system confuses me but then I'm old school.

Good on the French for being able to work well as a team too.

<t>Kallistra has 12mm early war figures including Russians and AustroHungarians. It's a great range, I bought enough French and Germans to do a couple of divisions per side thus a corps for the rules we play. Not interested in trench war just the opening few months.<br/> We play grand tactical thoug...

<t>Our local gang of young (at the that time) wargamers had a place where we could keep it set up and we actually played the whole campaign with a player for each of the powers. We tried for one evening session per week and it took us all winter. But we finished it and it was a lot of fun.<br/> <br/...

<t>Like Bill I once owned the first edition and loved it but no longer had the copy so I bought this one when it came out. My best friend and I did the full campaign game and we had a blast! Both sides need to attack at various times, the ebb and flow is great and it's very fluid. <br/> <br/> I woul...
