I had purchased this game some time ago, glued the counters together, and never got around to playing it.

Decided to give it a go today and noticed that only Operations 4-12 were in the box. I searched through my game collection for the missing scenarios only to check the geek site which informed me that there is in fact only nine scenarios. That's a relief.

I like Borg's The Great War, although it's a "game" rather than a "historical simulation." Due to the card driven mechanism, it's not ideal for solo play. Red Poppies didn't quite do it for me, although I should give it another go sometime. I hope In the Trenches will satisfy my criteria for a game with the period feel, a strong historical foundation, and clear game mechanics.
