    Looks interesting, BBG has a review and some other pics.  Any thoughts from anyone who has played it?

    I find it so funny that it is of such high quality and looks entirely professionally done and that nobody ever heard of this!

    Not to mention it is basically out for sale…

    I contacted them



  • looks very good


  • Customizer

    Yeah, I contacted them as well, no reply yet.  I was wondering if I should even post it because I figured such a game was probably already covered somewhere here… but I just couldn’t find anything.  So no one here has tried it out (or was able to purchase a copy before it became out of stock)?  It does look of high quality… never heard of the company or designer(s) though.
    :?

    ADD: Found out a little more, but not much  :-(.  The infantry are the same size as A&A, the japanese Chi Ha tanks are slightly larger, much like M44, the british carrier is smaller than AnA tanks, but “by the look of it” (according to the person who owns a copy) it should be in scale as AnA tanks.  Wanting to get some other impression about the game’s dynamic though - the above info is from the person who wrote a very favourable review… but I always like to get alternate views ya know?  Again read the review of the game on BGG, I’m intrigued - they really didn’t publish much in regard to when it will again be in stock…



  • If and when you get more info please post it here as I am very interested.

    I ordered 3 copies



  • If I read that right this game shipped to the US would cost $142.90 ($84.50+$58.00).
    If this is true I will wait for a review from someone.

    Hey BD - yeah, that’s the way I understood it as well (about the same price to ship to London)… I was thinking the same.  I have a closet full of lame games, I’ve become more selective over the years.  Hey IL, throw up a review (or three of them, one for each copy - eh eh eh) once you get your shipment.


  • 2017 '16 '15 Organizer '14 Customizer '13 '12 '11 '10

    I paid 308.00 USD for 3 copies including shipping to USA.



  • That sounds about right with the discount and waived shipping cost.

    Well, what about the three reviews since you pointed out that you promptly ordered three copies… when are you posting those?  C’mon, get on it.
