  • West Front (2nd Edition) Game Review

    A fog of war awaits the unwary in this game simulating the European campaigns of World War II from 1943 onward - dare you risk all?... Full Article
    Imagine a ball of iron, the size of the sun. And once a year a tiny sparrow brushes its surface with the tip of its wing. And when that ball of iron, the size of the sun, is worn away to nothing, your punishment will barely have begun.

    Nice review, the review missed only one critical aspect of this otherwise superior game.

    Solo play, literally zero. Entirely no way to play this game solo. Zip zero nil.

    I've owned them, I held on to them for the longest time, lovingly gave them prized positions on the shelf. Then one day I had to finally get real and accept it. They require FTF opponents or forget it.

    These games also can't be played via a program like vassal or cyberboard. Let's be realistic, unless you can manage to NEVER see the other guys blocks, it can't be done. So forget pretending you can leave the game set up like you can a conventional board game normally.

    But otherwise, the design is great.
    Life is change. Built models for decades.
    Not sure anyone here actually knows the real me.
    I didn't for a long time either.
