I really like this system, but Alamein pushes the limit when it comes to countercongestion. If you like the desert, go ahead. But if you like the system, stay to the smaller ones in the series.

Having played and loved Avalanche, red steel and red parachutes it was a must to get Alamein. The counters are beautiful and I do not agree with those who say the maps are ugly. They are quite nice. Case blue has much worse maps IMO. Game play is good. However, from a cost perspective you get all three above mentioned games on E-bay for less than Alamein costs. Buy them first.

I have changed my rating. Mechanics, found in other games, is quite good for ground units.
But the game is very, very, very long...nearly unplayable, even with scenarios.
Set-up is a nightmare...and there's a lot of mistakes about which the official errata is very light.
Air to air fighting rules are ridiculous with dozens of dice rolls.

Only played the intro scenario. Decent game, but to big to ever hit the table for anything longer.

Decent desert war campaign game with rules that are generally clear. Few issues.

Paid for this one & never received it. Rated according to what I got: air + a lesson in dodgy game companies.

Four full-sized maps and 2,100 game pieces. $200 for a retail copy...gee how come we have wargames, one after another, more and more expensive!?

One can think about this game whatever he / she wants. But for a company to announce "burning the rest when they don't get sold until x" is IMHO a clear sign what this company thinks about its own products.

I feel sorry for the designer of this game.

In fact it is not a bad one!

Like new counters are punched and stored in bags. All accounted for.
