Proper frother gaming in its purest form, without the stupid miniatures. Prepare to receive Boarders!

It really is more gaming fun than you can shake a stick at.

My copy finally arrived. Glad to see we APO addresses were left almost to the last. Looks like the next few nights will be spent punching out counters and assembling Ogres.

Spent about 5 hours punching counters and assembling 3D Ogres and buildings. The quality of the KS game is just incredible. I've been buying board wargames since about 1975 (AH Afrika Korps) and this is without a doubt the most impressive game in a box I've ever seen. A huge amount of thought has gone into the components and layout, just beautifully designed overall. It was a year late on the delivery, but I really don't care.

Fuck off you miserable git (and I still have my first edition copy), besides, you play Tom Wham games. The beauty of Ogre/GEV is that it was designed from the ground up to be a balanced game, that's why people still play it 35 years later. Unlike a lot of board wargames, there is no single "killer" strategy to win. The game is very finely balanced, has lots of different unit types, and lots of terrain (when using the GEV boards). Also, it's a 1950's style odds CRT by the way from Tactics II (which was itself partly derived from Kriegspiel).

Fair-dos about the Tom Wham game... but its a classic, and it's not as if we super-sized it out of all proportion did we...

(whoops, yea might have done)

Balance is all important in a game, its what make Snits so good, its down to the wire 9 times out of 10.
