Terence Turnovsky 10 8 8 A good system, once I understood the combat rules. I will buy more.

Gary Cole 9 8 8 Nice and simple game on a battle I did not know. Will download the others in the series.
Mo Caraher 10 6 7 Good, but not great. Liked the chit-pull to learn the combat strength bit but that, combined with the infantry & cavalry units using different facing rules, led to a a very crowded situation on the map. My advice to users: print the map larger.
Ken Filewood 7 6 4 Good value for a free game. Rules are clear and components simple and attractive. Mechanics are mostly vanilla hex & counter. There is a twist in leader activation makes little difference in practice. Usual problems apply.
john conner 8 8 8 Good game of the period. Easy to learn and fun to play!
Alan Ray 9 6 7

Roger Deal 9 7 8 A simple, fast playing game that's fun and well balanced. Counter art could be better
Allan Rothberg 10 5 7
Robert Zmaczynski 9 9 9 Rules need another edit and the counter colors need to match map. Otherwise the game played fine.
john conner 7 6 7 Simple and quick... maybe too simple. I like the initiative determination... makes every game different.
Jack Smith 5 5 5 Sorry, just read rules and inspected components, not a game I originally hoping for, so have not played. Thk u for the free offer though, for I could try before buying and buy what I like!
Fabrizio Davi 10 8 9 Nice system, intersting subject
Paul Kantro 10 8 8 A free introductory game is a great way to introduce a new series. Easy to recognize pieces, uncluttered map, and simple yet thorough rules.
Björn Söderlund 10 8 8
Elijah Lau 4 5 4 The individual combat counters are fine in theory but fiddly in practice.
