I should have this arrived tomorrow via 2-day!! Can't wait!! Very solid and fun set of mechanics based on "Lock N Load: Forgotten Heroes". Graphics look 100% better too- even considering the graphics in "Forgotten Heroes" were excellent.

Hammer of the Scots is currently one of my favorite games overall and is definitely my favorite wargame, just surpassing Rommel in the Desert (my second favorite). Since I am rapidly becoming a blockhead, I am eagerly anticipating the release of Hellas.

We love Louis and his court so much, we haven't put it away in a week and a half. It has remained set up and ready to play in the family room - 'cause you just never know!

Had a great weekend teaching my parents and sister how to play this one. We also played their newly purchased copy of Ticket to Ride (after they became hooked on TTR: Europe thanks to me!).

I'm a huge fan of games where the mechanics of a game matches its real-world theme. Nuclear War is one of the best examples I've played.

Two great examples: You have to plan moves two turns in advance (when the world situations changes, it takes time for the government to shift course) and a lot of the time there are no winners (Mutually Assured Destruction).

It's makes a great political statement and has a valid moral while still being an engaging game (especially when you combine all of the various incarnations together).

Been playing this one quite a bit lately. Am angry that I did not discover what the hype was about a few years ago. Most excellent game.

I donated Friday morning while at work and read thru the expansion rules Friday night. I played with my 9 year old twins Labor day afternoon. I'm sure we missed a rule or 2 or 3.
