<t>We were there on Thursday and did not leave until late Saturday afternoon and NONE of the up escalators were working the whole time. But otherwise I would mostly concur with your review. We definitely enjoyed the convention, lots to do and lots to spend our money on.<br/> I played in one of the S...

I would love to read some of those but prices of paperbacks have gone thru the roof.
I do have the Chandler one and wouldn't you know it, it's one of the cheapies.

My favorite module for the original game was the Crusades period so it sounds like that is getting close then. That one I will invest in.

<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.
