I bought bulge for $11 on eBay today.  I had to do a double take but still not sure why some one would sell it so cheap.  The seller said it was played twice and was complete so I got it for a friend.  Shame that the shipping was more then the game ($12)

It was like a puppy in the window. I had to take that runt of a game home and $23 was just to sad to leave behind.  Maybe I'll find AA50 for $19.

Play it slowly, as the supply rules coupled with movement make getting used to them quite hard. We played it wrong so many times before we got it right.
Enjoy it.

Yea. It's a fun game. You must "unlearn" all you know about traditional AA games.

And it comes with nice little trucks, the German models of which sell for a pretty penny on the secondary market.

I lost one quite quickly, which is a pain!
My own fault for vacuuming the house twice a day, I suppose.

That was the equivalent of vacuuming up $2.50 US in loose change:

That is ridiculous.
I would pay that for a Tiger. Or a Ferdinand. (Kursk, please Larry!)

Rarity, I presume.  Each game box contains about twice as many US trucks as German ones, which (I assume) explains why HBG sells the German truks for a dollar more apiece than the US ones (which are $1.50).  And trucks are a very uncommon A&A unit compared to the tons of (let's say) Sherman tanks that have appeared over the years, so that boosts the price of both the US and German ones.

If you don't like them I suggest vacuuming as often as me.
Actually,  I can see a crumb by one of my new Tigers...

If you can find the game for $30 or less then it's worth it just for the trucks. It's the samething with Hellcats and the Italian units from AA50 the Italians are so rare you can't even find them for sale.
