I can't seem to pull this one off my table. Great story, tactically challenging, looks amazing and creates great narratives... one of my strongest units was shredded after an event calling for a scourge to attack all units on hill hexes.. changed everything... great fun. Light rules, but just right. can't wait for heart of darkness.

Bloody awesome. I love the World at War games/system from LnL, this is just as good but not just with a Modern theme, it has a Modern/WW2 and Horror/Sci-fi/Fantasy theme as well!!!! Components are some of the best I have seen, rulebook is a bit hard to read thanks to the dark background on the pages, but very, very impressed with this. Highly recommended to anyone into Modern/WW2/Sci-Fi/Fantasy/Horror gaming LOL.

Great solo romp, fair amount of random and imbalance. Plays quick, great for when I only have an hour or so.

Excellent, fast playing light wargame. Great components! If you love the alternative history theme, get it!

I would have given it a 9 if only it had a Player Aid included (which you can download separately now).

个人觉得这款游戏在主题构思上非常棒,游戏的配件也很好。E-100和T-64的登场也为游戏增色不少,只要不是铁杆历史忠的话,买来玩玩还不错。

All solo plays thus far and I have really enjoyed them. I haven't had much time to explore this; certainly not as much as I'd have liked by now. But here are my thoughts:

Positive

d10-1 The theme is great. That's not an uncommon sentence from those on BGG who own this game, but here it is from me. Alternate WWII ending with a sci-fi and occult twist. An alliance between the USSR & NATO versus mutants and Nazis who have lived underground for 20+ years!

d10-2 Three factions give the game more personality and replayability. They are all unique from one another, though the Black Hand is the most different in it's units and play style.

d10-3 The components are great. Very nice looking art. The counters are very thick. I like the dark colors on the map and rulebook, contrary to what many others prefer.

d10-4 As a solitaire experience, each game I played (only a few at that) turned out different from the game before. The chit pull activation method adds variability and tension. I like this better than the traditional I Go/You Go method. This should help to breathe replayability into the scenarios.

d10-5 The random events table is a great addition. Most of the events, and the most likely to occur, will benefit the Black Hand to the detriment of the other factions. The event table definitely has the ability to unbalance or change the flow of the game.

d10-6 Combat seems very deadly. It's fun to roll for your armor attack using OPFIRE against an advancing enemy armor unit and blow it up with a good shot. The artillery seems very deadly as well. I haven't had any time to try the aviation rules.

d10-7 The designer is very active, polite, and helpful on the BGG forums. He asks for input, answers questions quickly, and is a pleasure to communicate with (over the BGG forums). His enthusiasm for his game is evident and his support another great reason to appreciate this game.

d10-8 15 scenarios with the base game! And a campaign you can play through with any of the factions! Awesome!

d10-9 While not designed specifically for solitaire play, you can enjoy the game this way. I have done so already. The chit pull activation makes it easier to do so.

Negatives

d10-1 The counters are too cluttered. Information is printed right on the edge, which makes clipping counters challenging.

d10-2 The mines/sandbags/smoke rules need some work. As currently written, it makes entrenched and supported infantry hard to impossible to dislodge from certain hexes. At least this is the case in Scenario 1 & 2. Either a modification of the scenario to allow more attackers or a modification of the rules would help. Personally, I'd prefer to see the minelaying/sandbagging abilities of infantry reduced or changed. There has already been a lot of discussion regarding this topic on the NW68 forums here. The designer seems to be working on a modification from what I gather. I believe it may be addressed with the new expansion.

d10-3 The original rulebook was vague on certain rules. See the forums here for clarification on many rules questions. The designer has promptly addressed any questions that arise and had already released an updated rulebook (PDF) as well as player aids. Hopefully this will not be a problem in a second addition or with the new expansion.

d10-4 The first couple scenarios are all I have experience with. They seem unbalanced. This may have more to do with sandbag/mines rules as mentioned above. I don't mind scenarios being slightly unbalanced, but those two seem to be too extreme.

Summary

I think this is a great product that is made even better with the enthusiastic and humble support if the designer. I am leery of expansions because they drain my wallet, but I am excited to see what products are developed in the future that support the core game. I'm sure I'll be picking them up. I highly recommend this to war gamers who want something different, Ameritrashers who want something different, and those who enjoy playing games solitaire/solo.
