Nice design. Although I enjoy Twilight Struggle, I think 1960 solves a number of small issues I have with it.

1) Bad hands (CP-wise) are mitigated by Rest Cubes and Campaign Bag.
2) Bad hands (event-wise) are mitigated by Momentum.
3) More things to juggle (media, endorsements, issues, debates).
4) Scoring only happens at the end.

It's a simple system made complex by 91 unique events. Each card has 4 functions: event (for one or both players), campaign points (campaign, advertise, position), issue icon for debates, and state for election day. Each full game turn, you have either 6 or 7 cards. You need to decide which cards to play during the turn, and which you want to save for the debate/election day. For the debate, you generally want high-valued cards with your own icon and a symbol for the issue(s) you want to win. For election day, you want cards with states that have a chance of swinging your way with 3 support checks. In both these cases, you don't know exactly what you might need at the beginning of the turn (and less so in earlier turns), and you may even change your mind as the events play out.

---

I have changed my mind on this. After playing it a bit, I now understand why TS works the way it does, and I enjoy it more.

After playing a number of tactical wargames, there are 4 things that stand out as being required for me:

- Morale. At the tactical level, units simply do not constantly eliminate each other. They take cover, they run, they refuse to fight. You can order them to charge the heavy machine gun, but you can't force them to commit suicide.

- Defensive Fire. Over the course of a full turn, every unit gets to take its move/fire actions AND fire at enemy units, during and after movement. Many games make defensive fire more costly than any other action, and basically require the unit to give up everything for the possibility of a future shot.

- Choice. If I want a unit to fire because it's obvious/necessary, but it cannot because I don't have a Fire Attack card, then I am not playing a wargame. A deck of all possible wargame concepts DOES NOT simulate the chaos of war. If you want to simulate command problems, broken radios, or a general lack of information being available to every unit, then build that specifically into the game.

- Playable. Many people fear or criticize ASL because it has a reputation for being really complicated and full of chrome. That may be true, but I can teach and play an infantry scenario (granted, SK) to a wargame newbie in an evening. That says a lot about the system. You only need to know the rules for the parts of the system you are playing, and you can add new stuff as you go.

Just the right amount of detail and abstraction for tactical squad-level combat. If you haven't played other wargames before (M44 doesn't count), then you won't get it right away.

The Minnesota map is as good as, but different from, the basic maps (8). The Japan map turns the game into Agricola (5). Thus the 6.5 rating.

Like Ra, players bid for things that have different values for each of them. On top of that, you have 3 resources to manage (farmers, pyramids, cards) that affect your game position. Looks great and plays great.

Interesting physical issues: the huge box is almost empty, yet the board doesn't really fit into it. The game is really nice light fare. Card/action drafting, card-driven movement, low score wins. A little heavy on rules for such a light game, but pretty easy to teach.

Fantastic 2-player version of Carcassonne. I find the interaction is less direct than with the original or H&G. The wall tiles make the game a bit more random. The fact that you only need to match up road edges (as in The City) gives more choices for tile placement.

Very interesting and pretty abstract area influence game. The king moves around the circle of territories under player control. Each place he visits gets resolved. The winner places a tower and merges the territory with any neighboring territories with their towers. Very tense, but a bit chaotic at the end.

8 nasty critters battle it out until only 3 are left. Players place bets on them. Earlier bets are worth more, but are riskier since your favorite critters can be killed off. The player with the highest visible bet values of a given critter can use its special powers. Very good depth for such a simple game.

A thoroughly elegant design that incorporates many of the complicated tactical wargame concepts into a nice clean system. Each unit counter shows costs for movement and attack, firepower, range, front/flank defensive ratings, and a few other special things on certain units. This information, along with a small terrain effects chart, is all you need to make your decisions. There's no CRT, no other tables, no special rules for cross-unit combat. Players take turns taking actions/reactions until both pass. This handles the issues of simultaneity and defensive fire much better than other light wargames, and much cleaner than other heavy wargames.

Rating could go up or down depending on how stagnant play becomes. Does the initial setup and randomness of the cards allow for a nice variety, or does the game become repetetive? [04/06] Starting to feel like tug-of-war. Down a half point.

This game is retarded. There's no other word that describes it as well. Every part of this design is a joke: movement, tile draws, card draws, combat, encounters. I can't think of any age that I would have enjoyed this game at all.

The endgame is great. The beginning is hard to play, because it's difficult to know what moves will result in what positions at the end. Might as well setup the board randomly.

Not bad as a light version of Arkham, but yet another FFG failure of graphic design. They not only don't have a clue, they also don't have a clue that they don't have a clue. The card stock and cutting sucks. There are 10x more components than there needs to be.

Although I have enjoyed SFB in the past, Federation Commander pretty much fixes every issue I had with it, without creating more problems. In fact, the game is deeper and more fun because of the additional impulse tactics and speedier play.

Excellent design. A nice filler with elements of Carcassonne and Through the Desert. The tile placement rules keep the region from being too "stringy". It's amazing how frequent it occurs that a tile is unplayable, and must be set aside into the face up pile.

A lot of game for such a small package. This game is unique in that it has a two-tier "election" system. The bottom tier is area influence, and the winners of those 7 areas get to vote for the results of the top tier. There's a lot of potential for screwage and leader bashing, but is really a blast if you don't mind thinking.

Kind of an area influence game. You want the majority of bridges to an island in order to place a stone of your own upon it. However, bridges connect 2 islands, so they count for majority in 2 places. If an opponent "captures" an island, you lose all your bridges to that island. This can have a ripple effect. Nice little 2 player abstract.

Not your usual train game: 5 types of resources (4 of which are auctioned), all track counts as loss, passenger and cargo trains are only "rented", track may (in reality, must) be sold to bigger companies, large networks of your own track not important.

Leave it to Martin Wallace to turn area majority inside out. Players are NOT the 3 factions of the French Revolution; they can control all of them in various regions. Players seek to have the most control of the faction that ends up winning each election. Players can also win (even if behind in the VP race) through Revolution or Counter-Revolution.

Players are trying to maximize their party's political control in Germany. Elections are held in 7 regions. Each region resolves itself over 4 turns and is offset from the previous region by 1 turn. Regions are scored partly based on each party's popularity there. Popularity is a dynamic graph similar to a stock chart. Players attempt to cash in their "meetings" when the graph is high so as to score as many votes as possible. This is complicated by the fact that players can change their party's stand on the issues each turn, and by the fact that the stance of a region on the issues is only revealed one new issue per turn.

So you need to find a balance between your party's issues and the 7 constantly (but slowly) changing regional issue sets. If you max out the current region which is about the hold the election, then you may have almost no sway at all in the next one. But maybe it's worth it. Winning an election gives you a big boost on the national charts, and let's you sway opinions...
