10 times the blocks, five times the complexity, and about five times in terms of increased playing time.

Really, thats encouraging. Thank you. So then, how does it compare to other Eastern front chit games, such as AH's TRC or Russian Front etc? Someone must know.

You might want to peruse this geeklist.

My take is that Eastfront provides a simple but effective model of the logistical differences between the two sides. Without going into the detail of OCS, it still makes you wonder whether you can afford to activate your troops for attack. The fog of war from the blocks at the very least prevents the factor-counting and number-crunching common in games like The Russian Campaign.

Thank you Sam, these remarks of yours have pushed the game much nearer to the top of my Eastern front "to do" list. Cheers!
