Something is definitely wrong in Kansas.

Did you know that the bags of minis, per power, are going for $25, $30 and $35 on eBay. The chips are also a hot ticket.

The game just came out and between Historical Boardgaming and cannibalizing copies oneself, this has become a business opportunity.

As far as I'm concerned, it's a disgrace that others are taking advantage over the short comings created by the company that made this game. It costs very little to make the little plastic components of this game. There is no need for individuals to be marking up the cost by at least 1000 percent.

I kind of agree with that sentiment, however if they are selling for that then the people paying those prices are justifying the high prices with their purchase.

It seems lamentable to me than AH edit a game and that from the turn 1 you miss chips and pieces of game (primarily infantry). This game does not deserve something so miserable.

Based on the OP seems like I got a bargain by purchasing a second copy of the game.

... I redid the game with Event Cards, a streamlined sequence of play, RR Moves and many other features...At least the map and some of the game mechanics are at least slightly OK so that there is something to build on....

If interested e-mail me at JBisio@msn.com for my historical variant.


Would you mind to put your variants in the file section? Or do you plan to sell it?

So are the British because everyone needs a few infantry to play the game.

This is always the smart thing to do- sad that it seems it is almost a "must do" in this case.
