This really captures the complexity of Afghanistan. Very similar to Andean Abyss, of course, but the victory conditions for each faction are so intertwined that the game is more tense overall. Lots of decision points, great components, excellent theme.

Another great game in the COIN series. Great theme and victory conditions capture the politics of the area. Seems well balanced.

love the game, love the factions. Solo play appears to be quite difficult to de-construct. I may buy one day.

I believe this will prove to be the best of the series. It has a "let's set it up and play it again" quality.

Slightly better than AA simply because the setting is more accessible. Game does a great job of creating the same sort of dynamics we see in the real world, with the Gov and Coalition falling easily into bickering, the Taliban being the obvious target, and the Warlords being easily overlooked. Can't say enough good things about the game. I wish I could play it more...

The best in a great series--so far. Having a second COIN faction really changes the dynamics of the game, especially since they share the resources that can be spent and the US can move the Government's troops along with its own troops. It really highlights the differences between the two factions' objectives.

06/11/2013: Purchased during GMT's 2014 Fall Sale

09/01/2014: Played through the playbook scenario once, and am in the middle of my solo introductory session outside of the playbook. I have no qualms rating this game full marks because of the myriad options available for each faction.

I am blown away by the level of interaction between the factions which result from gameplay decisions. This clearly shows the incredible amount of thinking that has gone into the game to ensure that the game perpetually remains in a tug-of-war state until it is time for final scoring, so kudos to the game designers for an amazing game and experience.

My second COIN game, and number three in the series. It's a step up from Cuba Libre in terms of complexity. I love that you have two COIN factions and the way they interact. I usually play my COIN games against the bots and absolutely love it. The AI can be a bit perplexing at first, but will of course play more smoothly once you are properly familiarized with it. I do have some minor grapes about the ruleset and player aids which I think could be improved. As usual the designers are doing a great job answering any questions that users might have here on the Geek.

I can't imagine a richer and more intriguing setting and theme for a political wargame. Gameplay creates a unique story, an alternative history of stuff that actually went down. Before seeing it in action, I hated the idea of missing Hand Management, but the Card Drafting mechanic of COIN is simply brilliant. This is the best effort of multiplayer wargame with Variable Player Powers and unique victory conditions I have seen. Some factions are natural allies, some not so much, but their goals aren't necessarily diametrically opposite. Every decision in the chaotic insurgency/counterinsurgency situation takes all the brainpower a player has in this easy to learn but difficult to win epic system.

Simply an awesome game, and one that keeps getting better each time I play it. I find myself thinking about it even when I'm not playing it, lots of strategy and the 4 factions are quite distinct but all interact with each other in a way that means you need to help someone to achieve your victory conditions. Just means the person you're helping may not always help you back!
Hats off to Brian Train and Volko Ruhnke for this game.
Well played sirs!
