Description A regimental-level simulation of the British/French siege of the Russian city of Sevastopol during the Crimean War of 1854-1855. The Japanese drive to India had to go through Imphal. It was a time of trouble, which gave birth to the most daring warriors, to strategists of unrivaled cunning, to many a legendary rogue — all household figures throughout Asia. Now, with 117 cards and one d6, it is your turn to rise to the highest challenge! 100 counters 20 x 22 map, 8 pages of rules.

Good gaming value for the money. Game. Anyway, this game provides excellent education about the body's circulatory system and is fun to boot. Especially if You will try a scenario, You have to buy more cards or collect a long time.

Description There are two versions of this game: The game includes 36 cards that teach the players about different artwork. Discover the new Chromino edition, the refreshing variant of Dominoes. From the rules: At the beginning of the game, a three colored chromino "cameleon" (with a special center) is placed on the table. Moments later the townfolk find Sheriff Take Noble face down in the dust. Shot in the back. But beware: it always has to touch. This continues until all four players have placed an accusation marker, with each player not being to look at the suspect just accused.
Comments
I really like sports games but this one is very dated.
A Domino variant.
Have only tried the basic rules so far.

Description Modern Fast Attack Craft Rules. The first in a series of detailed handbooks for ATS players filled with illustrated examples of play and instruction articles.
Comments
One of the more bizarre game themes; a mask making competition betwen two tribes.
Very deep and advanced for such a light-looking little card game. Very good with three players. Haven't played this yet. Once you understand the rulebook, this is quite a game for its size and affordability. Could have done without the bonus for getting a mouse to the end (runaway problems) but at least it makes the game go faster.

Description Shove ha'penny is a traditional British pub (tavern) game of dexterity and skill dating from the the mid 19th Century, with earlier variants in existence as early as the 15th Century. We salute you. You can play either of those two words on either of the two words that are currently displayed on the deck (like "Drink" / "Angel"). There are four types of cards: Heroes (forces of the men, elves, or dwarves), Hordes (forces of the goblins, undead, and dragons), Traits, and Events.
Comments
A scenario that allows you to build special structures. I did not find any obvious balancing issues.
Light, fun game that my parents enjoy.

Description Quintessence is an 2-5 player abstract game probably best known as one of the early entries in the "Games 100." A game combining response and memorization skills, Crok Crok Crok is an amusing introduction to the eating habits of familiar animals. There's never a dull moment with Picture Link, as every player is involved on every move. The Hexbearer is for any faction and considered an Uncommon type. 1 Titanic (Tin)

Rating for children.
My son likes it for now but I don't think it's going to last.

Description River Of Heroes follows Hammer and Sickle and focuses on the Soviet units carrying out the final phase of Operation Bagration, the final assaults across the Vistula River led by the tank spearheads racing towards Warsaw along with the specialised assault engineers and supporting self-propelled artillery regiments.
Comments
Game play is solid and interesting but fairly abstract (in a typical Colovini way).
Very tactical game. My daughter just loves this one, chasing the little balls around.

Description From the publisher: NFL Armchair Quarterback lets everybody play along with the action of a football game, on TV or at the stadium. CEW pays us in Lempira for everything we bring in plus bonuses for completing certain contracts. The rules use sub-systems that show the wild fluctuations of fortune that affected the forces of both sides, from heroic last stands to blunders that led to some of the more infamous military actions of the century. ATS is a tactical level wargame system with each turn representing about 90 seconds of real time and each hex representing 50 yards of terrain.
Comments
No files present - 2/11/08 I lost the first and won the second game.
Gift to Eva. Spin is very much derivative of the original Sorry!
Goony sales promotion. Spin is very much derivative of the original Sorry! Copying the moves of your opponent is sufficient for a long time to keep the game close. Taking away any strategy from Sorry isn't that easy to do, but they managed it.

Description Two players race counter-clockwise around a wooden board, trying to eliminate their opponent's pegs by landing on them.
Comments
Fun but the electronics leave a little to be desired sometimes, like giving someone a steal opportunity on the first round. The supply system is totally unrealistic and pretty much kills the game for me. While still trying to play the highest total card values to win (what's left of) the pot. It's otherwise not a bad D&D-themed pub game. This keeps it short and fun. A game with a lot of depth to it! For these reasons, I'm downgrading the published product to an 9 until the living rules are fixed properly. The base design is a clear 10, however. 40 pages seem a lot but honestly the core system is very easy and intuitive. How much one pays to buy cards can be a huge factor and is totally determined by luck and seems a bit much.

Description Horton Hears a Who! They're all hidden inside, along with the most popular characters from the best-selling Where Are They? Gustav Adolph has been in his grave for four years and the Swedish aura of invincibility has been shattered at Nordigen in 1634. 6 scenarios. Four pawns. The strip is still in syndication today (and currently drawn by Guy Gilchrist), but McCloud insists that only panels from Bushmiller's peak years on the strip -- 1946 and later -- are suitable for use in a 5 Card Nancy deck.
Comments
A neat little card game that plays out quite quickly.

("Atilla or Aetius?") is a card-based strategy game that simulates the famous Battle of the Catalaunian Plains. The optimum number of players will depend on how much chaos you can take - more than 4 players and elbows definitely become a factor! The rules also cover Detection, Ammo depletion, Medical Care, Repairs, Morale, Psionic Abilities, and Neohuman Races.
Comments
Found this on sale at the local Wal-Mart for 4 bucks, so I picked it up.
Little more than a Yatzee rip-off.
Grand strategy in the Star Fleet Battles Universe. The dice are a high Quality and the game comes in a great tin case.
A slight improvement on the original.
