I also got this recently and played it once so far. TwoGeneralsGames.com
I am personally interested in low luck strategy boardgames, where you have to maneuver different units over a map and for this it fits.
It is kind of a chesslike game with a theme and a bit dull yes.
But sometimes I like games where I can sit down on a sunday afternoon and play 2 hours without too many things to keep track of. Here I just have my 15 action points and spend them on any unit I want. Combat rules are pretty simple except the capturing mechanic. But yeah you definately can't not notice the age of the game.
