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: Nevsky, Teutons and Rus in Collision, 1240-1242



(n10026)
 
 




Publisher: GMT Games
Series: Levy & Campaign Series
Game Type: Board
Designer(s): Volko Ruhnke

Description:


Nevsky is a board wargame about the storied clash between Latin Teutonic and Orthodox Russian powers along the Baltic frontier of the mid-13th-Century. It is the first volume in GMT Games’ Levy & Campaign Series portraying military operations in a variety of pre-industrial conflicts. In Nevsky, players raise and equip their armies, then provision and maneuver them to ravage or conquer enemy territory or defeat enemy forces in battle. Feudal politics obligate an array of lords and vassals to serve on campaign—but only for limited periods. Players must keep an eye on the calendar and reward lords to keep their armies in the field. Nevsky is solitaire friendly or can add a rules option with screens that hide what the two players’ lords levy. A second option adds detail regarding vassal forces’ terms of service.

The Beautiful Boards of Wargaming! – Nevsky: Teutons and Rus in Collision, 1240-1242 from GMT Games

"...this touch is my favorite design choice as it wreaks of antiquity and the passage of time." Grant Kleinhenz, in The Players' Aid, considers the board for this GMT Games title in his ongoing survey of what he considers the best board designs. Check out the feature that he feels makes for an elegant tie of map and mechanics: "These highlights on the board make it clear that this is a game about supply and transportation as much as it is a game about sieges and pitched battles."
