Yes Todd - we're finding it most excellent so far (looks great, too). Just having trouble with The Devil Came Down to Georgia scenario as the British are very hard-pressed.

Very captivating game (a 9 out of 10 so far)!

This is a really awesome game. The map and counter artwork is fantasic. The scenarios are pretty cool looking also. We decided to play Top Malo House first. It's a small quick scenario. There is an interesting rule that the house can burn. The first time we played it the house burned almost completely but Lt. Mendez and his men remained unscathed. On the second try the house never did catch on fire but Lt. Mendez lost one half squad to sniper fire and another to a wounded hero. He and his last half squad survived a melee round by one point on the last roll of the game to earn another draw. What fun that was.

Tonight I am setting up Suprise Party. The Argees are dug in pretty well. It looks like it could be a rough time for the Brits.

Excellent,

I have played three scenarios. In Unexpected Drop the air cover killed the British. Yet the Argees could not take the houses. The British won, but they lost some tanks and men. I have stopped playing and will start up again when I am finished play testing a game. Surprise Party will be next. I will have to watch for the Argees being dug in. The art work and flow of the scenarios are very good. Excellent.
