I'm on the fence on this one.
Please, talk me into/out of it...

Solo fiendly? Replayability? Difficult?

Seminal.

This is one of the few detailed games there are on insurgency.
Actually, there is almost too much detail; there are a lot of subsystems and moving parts in the game but with time you will get it all down.

Solo friendly, yes - there is no hidden information.
Replayable, yes - there are scenarios both in the game and in the Wargamer magazine later, and there are many different ways to play the game.
Difficult, not really but sometimes there is a lot to keep track of.

I recommend it.

I picked up Nicaragua in trade earlier this year. Would anyone reading this be able to post or send me a link for the Nicaragua scenario that appeared in the Wargamer magazine?

Thanks.

Well, Brian I just put in an order from Noble Knight. Unfortunately the shipping cost was more than two times the price of the actual game!

I too would be interested in those scans you talk about... If you would be so kind.


Best wishes
Håkan

I need more than your interest Hakan... I need an email address too!

Brian

PS: there are copies for sale here on BGG for reasonable prices... and I am sure the postage would be only one multiple of the purchase price.

Thanks... if the material were stored on a website I could just give a URL but I haven't done that.

Can't just post it to BGG files either, lest we invoke the Wrath of Octavian.
