Hi Reef Wargamer from Denmark here. Just wanted to write that I really like the way and the pace that you do these reviews in. You have a very fair way of rating and describing games in a manner so even players who have no prior history with the games get something good out of it. Great great work so far.

Thank you Stephen. Finally a great Dane on the site! Im really glad you and some others feel that way. I simply can't play wargames as if they are anything other than GAMES. Im not a military historical genius. Just love the fun and the friendships these games create.

Reef, You're certainly right that Avalanche uses too many pieces of paper to present their charts. Like you, I've created a one-page chart which works much better. I notice that you have the 2nd edition rules (the one with the German infantry on the cover). You might download the 3rd edition rules which are available on Avalanche Press's site. The rules are a little easier to follow. One thing I might suggest on your video presentation is to do closeups with a different camera setup--you can't really see the counters. But if you do the counters separately (perhaps laying them on the table and pointing to them with a finger or pencil), you could get better images. Then stitch the closeups into your video at the place where you want them.

Cheers Kent... I do need to look at trialling new video ideas. My production values leave a lot to be desired!! Due to the videos being shot from my phone, no editing equipment seems to work.... hmm Ill have a think about it.

Hey Reef, just a quick line from an Italian follower concerning the whole "surrender-pose" on the counters. I think you gotta take it with a bit of humor, I mean, honestly we're not that good of an army, we did fairly well in WWI managing to hold ground with equipment that was almost half a century old and when we got to WW2 and having basically the same equipment we lasted very little, in retrospect I think we played a great role in axis defeat in WW2 and the world should thank the incompetence of our army. :)

Daniele,

Either you are a fake name (which in all likely you are not Italian) or you are just merely ignorant of actual history, perhaps your sunday morning reading is lacking. Stick with your bias by reading only propganda, the Italians gave as good as they got and genral Alexander of the British army stated as did the ghurka regiment that even despite the lack of weaponry the italians fought harder than their panzer reliant German allies. But I take your comment with a wry smile because you are ignorant, possibly merely a very simple minded uneducated armchair hero.

The Italian San Marco and Bersaglieri divisions fought harder than their German counterparts, in Rommels diaries he clearly states the reason he incorporated the Italian divisions in his panzer groups because of their ability to add punch, the Italian divisons fought a whoel day longer than the Germans, thye Germans surrendered 24hrs before the italians and only after the italians were completely surrounded and ordered by Mussolini to stop, did they cease. But I am sure you didnt know that, coz it was never in the comic books or crap revisionist literature you grew up reading.
