Great game both as an initiation and as a base for expansion. It adds that the adversaries are quantitatively different and have differing objectives and terrain positions. Builds tension during the game in a thrilling manner.

A good game on a quite unknown battle outside Catalonia. Tense and rewarding gameplay, full of low-level tactical decisions, especially for the Catalan player (the most interesting side to play). Great components. Its downsides are sometimes the lack of tension in the first or 2 first and 2 last turns and a slightly unbalanced victory conditions (and a bad distribution policy by the publisher), but nothing to worry about.

Very nicely done. The game played well with the English rules and card manifest, and we found only a few minor ambiguities not already covered in the Q&A. The system is mostly snips and pieces cobbled from elsewhere, but some bits, such as how salvo fire is handled, are really quite clever. There was plenty of atmosphere and narrative, and it looks simply splendid on the table--even the pictures don't do it justice. Recommended.

Playing time was about 3 hours excluding set-up (and be warned, the stickering is a project in its own right--don't expect to do it the first time you sit down with the game).

Excellent game. You can really LIVE the very brave assault and heroic defense from both sides...

A great siege game with a bit of the 3D "toy" aspect, all based on a relatively obscure battle. A bit hard to track down a copy but worth it. It's like besieging Minas Tirith but without all the fantasy units.

Dice festival with some overpowered cards*, but with nice graphics and good historical background. The historical setup is very, very, very, long. T_T ( but you can do it shorter if you only check numbers and not names)

I had a good time playing the game and is a good introductory wargame but probably i will never play it again.

* the one that say that you can't enter in a empty square is terrible for the catalan in the reinforcement turn.

Good and playable recreation of the final assault to Barcelona city in 9/11/1714. Some 5.000 defenders (most militia and volonteers, some army) defends the ruins of the wall of Barcelona after a 14 month siege against the assault of some 30.000 attackers (spanish and french armies). You know how probably will the situation end, but the challenge is: Barcelona will resist for some hours, or some days more?
