If you love wargames and you love games with a strong narrative, this is one of the best games out there. Clear well written rules with a beautiful hand management system.

Incredible game, incredible value. Get this, you won't regret it.

Also this is too good a line not to share:

Edit Feb 2012: that little electric tingle along my spine that something really exciting was about to happen is almost always there when I play. It's crossed the line from plain old great game to personal favorite whatever its flaws.

2015-01-17: in this thread, I said This is in great part why I like Combat "Why do I need a fire card to fire?" Commander so much. I can see those guys in the foxhole on the hill top with the mortar shooting at my guys. But the game is saying "yeah, you see them, Mr. Gamer Guy, but those poor SOBs in hex K4, they don't see sweet bugger all. And that's why I'm not giving you a fire card, because, well, f*** you!"

This expansion is a must. Three additional factions, updated RSG rules, and more maps.

More refined than CC:E in some ways. You can't go wrong with this series.

EastFront II is marvellous. The map is simply gorgeous, and the rules have been cleaned up where needed. However, unlike the original EastFront, this one takes up a lot more table space.

A 10 in the right context, in the right place, with the right people. I have seldom laughed so hard.

My favourite abstract - wish I were better at it, but I'd need to play almost nothing but to get really good at it... http://www.samarkand.net has not only great sets for sale, but also have a great description of the game for the uninitiated.

Two comments:

1. The team game is what makes this game the brilliant gem it is and it's the only way I want to play it.

2. It still hurts my brain, but it's coming more clear with every play.

This '9' rating is a synthesis of... 10 for the team game, 8 for the one on one game.

Who am I kidding. This is just a 10.

I had preconceived notions about this game that put me off playing it for a very long time. I'm sorry that I waited so long. This game is great. Fortunately I have friends who own and like this that I can play this with again.

How this game evolved for me...

[12 Jan 2008] Absolutely outstanding. Probably the most tense two-player wargame I've played in years. Might possibly improve to a 10.
[8 Sep 2008] Moved it from 9.5 to 10. I get cravings for this game. It keeps me up at night after getting a play in, thinking "if only I'd tried a coup before..." Tension.
[14 Nov 2008] Ok, for me, this game goes to 11.
[28 Nov 2008] Ok, I'm now hooked on playing this at http://www.wargameroom.com - and I've had crushing defeats, miraculous comebacks, and more.
[19 Aug 2009] "You're doing the lord's work promoting this game" - Jason Matthews to me in a chat at wargameroom.com
