Summary: I've finally beat the AI on the easy level in the campaign game. It took about four plays. But I love the game, it reminds me of the old school board games of the 80's when you took over the kitchen table for a month and your girlfriend sulked about it.

Summary: Als langjähriger Spieler von Hex-Games bin ich total begeistert von dem Spiel. Allerdings sind einige Sachen nicht selbsterklärend und man sollte wirklich das Handbuch lesen. Bei youtube gibt es einige Videos als Anleitung, die einem auch weiter helfen können und genügend Foren, wo man Fragen...
Summary: Das das Spiel rundenbasiert ist, für einige 'staubtrocken' möchte ich an dieser Stelle nicht wiederholen. Was mich stört, ist, dass mind. 2 'Vorredner' dieses Spiel mit 'Hearts of Iron' verglichen haben! Also bitte: Das ist wie Apfelstrudel mit Ketchup zu essen...
