Description Cross is played on an hexagonal board with 2 to 10 hexagons per side (6 is the standard size). One "objective room" deck and one "Dungeon room" deck. The Guide also includes an index to Car Wars weapons and gadgets, hints on customizing vehicles, new rules for off-road combat, and new rules for three-wheeler vehicles. The Arab and Israeli units are mostly platoons. Two extra trucks are added for the game for two and bonus material is included for Aquaretto. Car Wars. Localized swings in initiative are common, and the situation presents many counterattack options for the Soviet player, even though he is on the operational defensive.

Variable Player Powers
Description Players play as individuals or teams. It is played on a large cloth playing field, with teams of players that are represented by miniature men mounted on smooth round bases. In keeping with the Advanced Tobruk approach you will receive a stack of small, fast-playing scenarios to get you on the maps right away, as well as monster-sized action across the entire map! Diplomacy inevitably fails and the missiles start flying! The game's unusual feature is that the deck of eighty-four character cards hides a series of puzzles.
Comments
The "Nuclear War" games tend to be unbalanced due to the wide spread of population cards. Change for 25 Million, anyone?
Solitaire. Better with 3 or 4 - complete chaos :) Really enjoyed the theme. It is basically a card game with odd scoring mechanisms (blowing up people...) Hopefully someone with a greater interest in counter-culture games will take this from me. Very deep in fact, and you can have a lot of contol if you take a little time to think.
Excellent system and good choice of operation.

Description Ever wonder what it would be like to have King David defend Jerusalem from a horde of Babylonian Chariots? Each player assumes a secret mask with hidden VP-bonus and sends out a "dancer" to fulfill various functions at 6 different "stages" (or rather "adventure places"). You'll find conservative blue chips like IBM (International Business Machines Corporation) and high risk high flyers like WOW (Wildcat Oil Western). Easy, right? This game has been redone as Gondoliere, which is very similar. If your BFFs can stop laughing long enough to guess what you are doing, you win!

Initial rating.
I've only played once so far. Underrated IMHO.
Superb and criminally underrated game. One of my personal favorites!
Homemade copy. This one is amazing for a game with just cards. Much artwork is too dark.

Played several times.
Sounds interesting.
Italian edition. I was given the game because I was in the 110th at the time.
Very good abstract game. I didn't make it a good game.

Description Cute little duck and the frog boy are swimming around the pond, trying to reach a large rock. They can be played separately or linked together for a "grand campaign" It is printed on a single postcard-sized piece of cardstock, with game map on front and rules on the back. The first one to reach big rock wins.
Comments
Nice rule system. Enjoyable. May not be strictly accurate as a historical situation, but I like that each force has unique special rules, as it provides more game to game variety.

Description Are You the Traitor?
Comments
I like it because it is another Russian battle that is ill-served by the gaming industry. Each player controls an airplane that is flying to various "airports". With magazine. Anyone who enjoys this game should also hunt down a copy of Holowczyn, a battle earlier in the campaign, published by Swedish Game Production and by the same designer.
Dice rolling game. Or maybe I have, but I don't remember.
Unplayed.
This looks like a fun game that can be played with my gaming group. Quite simple and not very balanced.

Description Your Own Private Idaho is an expansion module for the game Price of Freedom from West End Games which can be played either as a role-playing game or as a hex and counter wargame. Is a card game designed to be as simple as it is engaging. Bygg upp en organisation av lojala gängmedlemmar och alliera dig med andra spelare för att nå dina mål. On your turn you have to call a number, take a card from the stack and read the word next to the number you have called. On a turn, a player rolls the die; based on the die roll the player either chooses a colored droplet in the color of her choice from the pond and places it on her scoring disc or drops a wooden "pebble" into the pond two or three times.

Ett spel som, trots sitt namn, passar killar och tjejer i åldrarna 16 till 45.
If you roll a breakdown when trying to do a High-Energy-Turn (HET) then this will go flying off the table!

No.
It's a memory game of what's in and what's out of each of the 6 boxes, which is about at the limit of what you can do naturally so there's some work required. More of an annoying but easy math exercise than an actual game. Very interesting game.

The game ends after a fixed amount of time, which must be defined before the start. You win! The winner then leads a card from his hand. Can also be used instead of dice. All other players get one point for each trick they take.

Essen 2008 Little connection to actual flight manuevering.
I wanted to like this...but didn't! Unneeded (and afflicted by messy rules until the recent clarifications by the designer).
