Why continue to review over priced, not well done, not played at tournaments, Avalanche Press games? By the way, in te USA they have been known to sue you if you publish a bad review of their games.

Hey Mike, good to hear from you. In answer to your question I would say - Freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of thought.... to name but a few things. When they start handing the games out for free then I would concur but whilst it's still my own hard earned cash that's going on them then I believe "honest reviews" not "bad reviews" are in order. I take your point though about Avalanche press having been covered unfavourably on a number of occasions by myself. I wouldnt change the reviews but perhaps more contemporary games in the future. Which though, of the following should I have withheld from a prospective purchaser -

A) Missing charts/turn marker
B) Map gets creased each time you put it in the box.
C) Data on weather track/impulse chart had to be completely changed and scenarios are almost impossible without errata tables.

Ive always come from the viewpoint of "gamer/purchaser" and it's to them my loyalty stands. Were I to be reviewing films should I only speak positively about them? Should Sex in the city be regarded along the same lines as "The Godfather or Shawshank Redemption?" It's With that in mind I believe I owe the companies nothing... apart from my personal feedback. I actually own about a dozen or more Avalanche Press titles which given the specialization of their consumer base makes me a pretty darn loyal customer given the production problems they seem to have on occasion.

Possibly with your comments in mind I'll review Washingtons war next. The problem is though that Washingtons war for example has NINE videos on BGG, twilight struggle is similar. The games I have done try to reflect both contemporary and unexplored. As for the litigous culture we live in... You are right and realistic but it is tragic that in a world where men and women genuinly put their lives on the line on a daily basis in combat for other peoples freedoms that companies can sue over people views on their paper and cardboard games! But I appreciate your concern if it is genuine Mike. Thanks for your feedback mate. Ill give it some thought in the future. I'm afraid I have to call a spade a spade but perhaps there is a more subtle way around the problem.

Reef, my point is why bother with them at all? Why not stick to companies that seem to care more like GMT, MMP, etc?

Yes, Had to think about that for a while... You're probably right. I think the reason I consume a reasonable portion of my time with AP is that theyve never really gone into multiplayers, CDGs or block games to much extent. And with that in mind they probably lend themselves to being solitaire friendly. Sadly I spend at least half of my time playing these games solitaire. Let's see what the future holds, I have a plethora of GMT games. Later!
