My favorite wargame. Simple rules blend strategy and dice rolling. It pays to be aggressive and games move very quickly. Best for fans of wargames ala Risk and Axis & Allies. Components offer a lot of versatility for personal modification of the rules.

The game is fast and the rules are simple to understand. With the variations of the board you won't tire of the game, and if you think you can master the rules think again. Viktory but only for one.

Low on simulation value but high on replayability and speed of play. Surprisingly deep strategy for a very simple (5 page) rules set. Requires thinking more like an abstract Euro game than a grognard's wargame.

Fast, playable, simple, dramatic and fun. Bad decisions early on WILL come back to haunt you later, and anyone who just tries to sit there dies.

It's a fun, short, light wargame. If you like the Risk/ A&A style games and only want to play for about an hour, this is a good game for you.

After two plays, I am impressed. Every single turn feels like the one that will make or break the game. There are dice, but it is not a Risk-style dicefest. Quick playing but still strategically satisfying.

It's a bit too easy to get an overwhelming advantage, and leaving one or more players playing on without hope of winning. Still fun if you're winning :-)

Nice game with solid components, especially for a self-published game. Plays pretty quickly and we learned that there's no real penalty for being on the offensive every round....

Fast fun wargame. Well balanced but not terribly heavy.

Have one play under my belt, 2 player against my dad. Felt a little like Civ and risk, with some Tikal'ian hex building mixed in. We're pretty sure we were slaughtering the rulebook, so we have to try again.

High randomless with heavily amplified swings of ownership. Nearly lossless attacks promote pointless events.

Winning was total unrewarding as was, from what I'm told, the associated defeat.

Good production quality for a self-published game. Rules look interesting on paper, but fell flat when played. Probably won't play again.

Didn't want to rate this so low, but I checked BGG's rating guidelines and "wouldn't play again" means a 3, so there you go. Not terrible as these conquer-the-world things go, but nothing to make me want to play again, and the endgame is torturous. Some clever stuff, and will appeal to a niche, but greatly oversold by the website.
