As we haven't released it yet, it's very doubtful you'll have anyone respond in the positive... (We will be playing this in the Mayfair event area at Gen Con, though!)

PS Yes, I know I didn't say when it WOULD be released. Stay tuned...

They sent us review copies.

I wasn't expecting this game, I didn't want to like it. The topic doesn't interest me.

It's just not my kind of game - on paper.

I've played it a couple times, and it is a very light game that impressed me enough that it's gone from "get rid of quickly" to "Keep for the foreseeable future". It definitely filled a hole in my collection.

I understand why some folks might not like it though, the depth comes from the decision making, not the rules. How do I cost my opponent moves or invalidate his tactics? What is the best way to gain ground and what are the fewest number of troops I can use to do it?

Yeah, it's chaotic and random, but it works for me.
