A true classic. Strategy, tactics and tension in a relatively quick fun format.

It is the game that I play most often. What a pity is that the game is out of print now. I have to make my own replacement card because the original deck has been worn out due to frequent playing.

This "squad leader card game" is the best 2-player WWII game ever made; it will never be surpassed. Nothing comes close in terms of excitement level. If you can find it, buy it. Complexity is moderate to high (although you can play on a more basic level), but the time spent will be well worth it. I played more than 1,200 documented games of UF over 15 years, starting in 1983.

One of my favorite games of all time. A card game which manages to capture the fog of war, the terror of combat, and the "make-do" ability of commanders all at once. The rules can be a bit of a bear, but start off slowly and you'll be in for a treat. A must own.

Possibly my favorite game!
Obviously getting it to the table is a tad difficult.
I was so excited about this game when I first got it oh so many years ago because I thought it would give me a chance to play again without my infamously bad die rolls coming into play.
As it turns out I have a talent for drawing a red 6 at just the wrong time.

A great game. Takes a few playings to get the hang of it, but, not as complicated as some people have said. The rules are also not that bad in my opinion, considering they were written for programmed instruction. Recent playing resulted in raising rating to 10. Will play any time!!!

Simply the best WWII tactical simulation, easy to learn, fast to play. Fun with Germans, Americans and Russians. Needed expension for other armies of WWII to play every theater out. Innovative design.

Great card game with WW2 Theme ! I want to play it more often but the rules a quit complex so it is very difficult to teach them new players. If you only explain the basic rules you are limited to the first mission thats quit boring.

A ground breaking, genre defining game as it was one of the first card games when it came out in 1983. Spawned a host of card games off it. Exciting, realistic, playable and rewarding to play. An excellent translation of squad leader to cards. Slight luck aspect but not that significant as the game is so enjoyable. Played countless games and still holds up today. One of the AH classics and one of my top 10 of all time games, a must have.

I have played this one more than 120 times. It's a very tense game which many times requires agonizing decisions and the result is often decided at the last minute. It's also very immersive. Especially when infiltration happens and the possibility for hand to hand combat comes into the horizon!

Highly recommended.
Up Front is a proof that a simulation can be perfectly playable.

In fact, now that I am thinking about it, this is my favorite game of all times.

This is by far the best squad level combat simulations out there (I play Ambush/ASL/MeM 44/and Panzer Gren as well). Even at it age it still holds up very well. If you can find a copy of this snap it up you will not be disappointed. The rule book has a steap learning curve but there are some great rule summaries on this page which will greatly assist you getting right into a game.

I will play Up Front anywhere, at any time. A gem of a game that I picked up at a second-hand sale on a whim and been playing now for about six years along with the two expansions. An absolute blast of a card game, plugs right into my fascination with small unit tactics and skirmish gaming. I rate the two expansions the same as I see all three as the same game.

Up Front is the best Card Game ever published. It has endless possibilities and is never the same again. Because of its programmed instructions its easy to learn and it will be very difficult for every publisher to produce a better card game !!!

My favorite wargame (and its expansions). My win/loss ratio must be 25%/75%. I think the lack of complete control over your terrain and movement adds much to the game, as does the frustration that occurs when the enemy is moving so close, knowing you could wipe them out with one good Fire attack, and not having the right Fire cards.

By far my favorite wargame. A game you can play in an hour or so and replay every scenario and never have it go the same way twice.

I taught a friend to play not too long ago, so he tracked-down a good copy. But now he is starting to eye my Banzai, Desert War and Folgore! expansions. If I end up dead in a ditch somewhere, please contact the police and tell 'em he did it for the expansions!
