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...

<t>I agree about Compass Games, quality products. I recently bought Red Star White Eagle and it's excellent. I used to own the original too and always thought it was a fun game but this version is superb. Larger hexes for big fingers and older eyes, ditto for print on the counters, easy enough rules...
