As Maxim 168 says: "L'espérance, toute trompeuse qu'elle est, sert au moins à nous mener à la fin de la vie par un chemin agréable."
"I'm not allowed to say how many planes joined the raid, but I counted them all out and I counted them all back." Brian Hanrahan
Compared to its MMP clone, the map and counters seem small--are small. Yet the Japanese always outdo MMP when it comes to the quality of the components. MMP is not afraid to let others do the high class work and then cheapen such work with its IOS clones. With respect to Mark, I prefer this version's map design. It looks tighter and cleaner, though the dimensions are clearly small.
