I played this game for the first time today with Leslie. For a two player game it has enough depth in tactics and a simple enough game mechanic to provide a great couple of hours entertainment. It's slotted into my "will have to buy this" category.
In the early war I as Russia won the Korean conflict, the Arab-Israeli War and the Vietnam conflict, So I was racing away in the early war game, then Leslie started to come back in the Mid-War period. I was still making inroads around the world, but Leslie was playing the victory point win, rather than a territory match.
Slotted for a game next Tuesday. Hopefully I may have read the rules by then and learnt from my mistakes.
