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.

Mailing Lists

In the early days of the internet and the years just prior to the internet, war game players used mailing lists to find other players. On-line forums and interactive player platforms, like VASSAL, Aide-de-Camp, and Steam, have replaced these mailing lists. The Grognard Archive pages list many of the now defunct mailing lists that were active then.
