What do the Experts Say?
I could play this at least once a day, without EVER getting bored = 10
This is just a hell of a game. It packs a lot of options into a reasonable amount of rules. The game isn’t always straightforward to learn because of all the moving parts, but once you figure it out, it’s quite amazing. I like it’s ‘big picture’ approach rather than worrying too much that about unit details. Also, I learned very well that I am no Rommel. Thankfully for history, he lost in just about every game I played (solitaire).
Superb. My favorite North African game by far. A game of both strategy and nerve. The use of the supply cards create a game-within-a-game.
Best desert game ever, awesome war-game, and it can work out to be a fantastic historical simulation as well. There is real art to fighting in this masterpiece. Exemplary play balance. It can take a full evening to play if one side or the other doesn’t get smoked early, which is a real possibility.
Genuine knife edge stuff. Not a very forgiving game, but rewards supply chain management without book keeping which is genius. In the desert you have supply or you have nothing…
This is currently my favorite 2-player game. I love how you can wipe out enemy units just by out-maneuvering them, and how one slip can end the game.
The best block game and an excellent North Africa Game–clean, logical game system. You must be careful of the supply status of units and the potential for the cutoff of supply.
In my view, an almost flawless wargame and probably my all time favourite. Also the only game which really captures the feel of the Western Desert campaign.
