Worth far more than the $40 or so for the game. A game that has weathered time quite well.

Better than most games. I prefer the AH edition as opposed to the AH edition.

Pretty to look at. Simple to learn. Hours of replayability. Easy to store. Only 20 bucks. You can't beat the value.

Packs ALOT of game into one small card box. It fits in your pocket!

Plays best with 4 though. Also check out Varrater.

I paid less than $40 by going in with a buddy on a T-Hammer order. Now that I've played it, seen firsthand the beauty of the board and quality of the components, I'd have paid double and not felt robbed.

If you live in Europe, this will cost you about 25 euro. If you live in Germany, 20 euro at Toys'r us.

With the inclusion of Tactics Cards in the PS Games (Pro Ludo) version, this is almost the same game as Battle Line for half the price (€8.60 from online stores). Its also cheaper than any of the Kosmos 2 player games, though the components are not as good.
