Because I'm a big fan of the game and would love to see more discussion of it here, I've posted reviews and battle reports from several Barbarossa games over the last couple of months.

These aren't perfect games, but they're good games and have enormous potential. I hope folks give them a try and decide for themselves. What I hope to avoid is people who would really like them, never trying them at all for lack of information. I hope my reviews will help a bit with this.

This is also a game that benefits enormously from watching over someone else's shoulder as they play, just to get the hang of the rules and how they work together as a system. Until there's that critical mass of players this is hard to find; so hopefully my battle reports fill in that gap a bit.

You can find my posts here:

Let me know what you think! And I hope to join in discussions with others who are veterans, or just discovering these games.

Next up is Blitzkrieg 1940. Summer is almost upon us so I may fall victim to distractions, but I've got the models painted and play is underway so it wont' be that long.
