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.

"La Bataille" Considered - by Jeff Capuano

Very interesting video produced by Jeff Capuano. Sure to be of great interest to fans of the La Bataille series. This is the first in a planned series of presentations on the La Bataille board wargame system. "These are not tutorials; more like a series of examinations of the system by an awful but thoughtful player."
