I have seen this game on ebay and I have watched some YouTube vids about it. Before I take the plunge and scrape some funds up to pick it up, I figured I would pick the brains of the folks here that might have played the game or own it. Is it worth the bucks? BTW, any one know why PSC never added any other nations, such as US and France to the line? I thank you in advance for your help and comments.

Hi
I have the game and the tanks KS. Its a fun game but like most Memoire 44 game is dice driven.The plastic Infantry
weapons are fragile, but the tanks are nice.

I think it is worth the money, but I really like WW1 games.

I have played a good many games now, both with and without tanks. All have been fun as heck and all my opponents have agreed. Although it is indeed dice driven it also features a lot of cards so that there are still plenty of viable tactical choices.

I would say the reason they haven't released other nations is because they wouldn't change the game much, if at all, except for the visual aspect. It might not be worth the costs to manufacture everything for the potential limited return.

The game is based off Command&Colors which is quite abstract but extremely fun.

Be careful when assembling the figures, they are quite fragile.

Ditto on the figures !!

They can be fragile but there are nice videos on Youtube which show the best way to snip the figures off the sprues. I watched them and only broke off two bayonets, and that was on a double set of the figures.

Thanks for the info. nazrat, double figures? Is there a way just to purchase the figure sprues? I would love to get some plastic 15mm WW 1 figures.
