Fast, simple, not expensive, little errata, but only reasonably fun. (War game Review)

In his review on BoardGameGeek, Brendan Whyte first turns a critical eye towards the components and rules and lists their shortcomings. Game play fares better: “…the game is fast and quite fun”. Whyte then goes into comprehensive details covering game mechanics and spares no criticism for the game opponent (AI). His discussion concerning solitaire board games vs solitaire computer games is very interesting.

Game: Bloody Monday: Napoleon at the Gates of Moscow



(b10043)
 
 




Publisher: VentoNuovo Games
Game Type: Board
Designer(s): Emanuele Santandrea
Search for this game with VentoNuovo Games


Description:


Using the game engine from Moscow '41 (and not VNG's "Waterloo 200") the game provides action and challenges, plus the joy of die rolling. Unlike other VNG products, Bloody Monday uses large 20mm blocks, and includes over 110, to provide enough detail and different unit types but still keep the game playable in one sitting. Colorful PVC stickers and "fog of war" give players everything they need in an easy mechanic.

The Tuesday Interview – Bloody Monday with Ventonuovo

"For his second run into the 19th Century, designer Emanuele Santandrea has chosen to have a go at Borodino, the climactic struggle between Napoleon and the Emperor of Russia that in many ways ended the First Empire. The game, Bloody Monday, Napoleon at the Gates of Moscow, has already hit its Kickstarter funding goal, so it was particularly nice of him to answer a few questions about his design philosophy, why Borodino, and the difference between Goretex and Magnatex."
