Packer Big Lunch - Border War: Angola Raiders

Wed May 18, 2016 5:31 pm

Time to Ratel some sabres in Southern Africa, pongos. Timely as I am, it has taken thirty-two years to break out the physical chits and spread the map.

Someone had a good time!

Decision Games takes a bit of flak, but they've got some great titles, and their entry-level stuff is really good at paring back on a lot of weight and leaving you with meaningful decisions and their consequences. That's one good thing a lot of wargame companies remember; there are plenty of people out there to be converted, and Multi-Man Publishing, Victory Point etc all do very affordable games for the beginner.

I've got a copy of Yom Kippur (https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/3414/yom-kippur) knocking around somewhere if you ever fancy a Egypt vs Israel punch-up on VASSAL, Alex.
The beatings will continue until morale improves.

Yeah, now I've a taste for it, let's see if I can't bungle an Israeli armoured spearhead.

As we chatted elsewhere, I don't think I can speak to a game's quality beyond 'I like/understand/appreciate this' at the moment and defer to you, Dave Neumann, Kelsey and all the seasoned BG'ers out there. But it was entirely awesome, and theme/theatre can certainly go a long way.
