Today on Bring Your A-Game we speak with Jeff Billings about the Kickstarter for Red Devils, a set for the SMG game from Lost Battalion.

Do you play the SMG game?

When I first read about it, it sounded pretty good. Just the kind of easy-going game – sort of rules-light – that makes it easy to include kids. It just seemed that the components were pretty expensive. Was that initial impression wrong? Are they good value for the money?

Thanks in advance.

Dale, I own the game. I think the components are very good. The concept and mechanics are really nice. The main issue is that the rules are all over the place. Finding a rule for clarification is very tough. It's not logical in it's layout.

Still, I like the design and I know that Jeff is working on the rules so that they are more user friendly.

Dale, I do not own a copy but I have played and been very impressed. The LBG guys work hard for this game. I'll likely be backing Red Devils myself.
