Not a formal review or anything…but, I have played all the versions of the board game. That said, Revised seems the most fairly matched, evenly played, in my humble opinion. I absolutely LOVED the way it progressed.
Russia was an actual force for Germany. Not easily defeated and actually had a very decent ability with aggression. Very refreshing.
The overall lack of a good German navy created real issues that if not addressed early will haunt that player later in the game.
Britain was faced with an early decision (factory in India OR pound Germany). This was sort of normal…
America, similar to Britain, was fairly normal.
I guess the overall thought was that there wasn’t an overall clear winner after the first turn. It seems like most of the versions I have played seem more like prolonging the inevitable after the opening sequence. This one still had lots of possibilities and until the 5th or 6th round were still “anybody’s game”.
