Description Very simple spin and move game based on the comic strip. Ages 9 and up. The race starts just with the start tile on the table. The counters represent the military units that took part in the campaign. The Italian 10th Army and 5th Army, Rommel's Afrika Korps, and the British 9th Army and 8th Army (containing troops of many nationalities) are deployed as individual battalions, regiments, brigades and divisions - each with its historical strengths and capabilities.
Comments
Good art in this grisly little game. The mixture of what seems (to me anyway) to be operational elements, like the air and supply game, with strategic elements just did not seem right at this scale. Afrika and Desert Fox are still the kings. Won't give it a bad rating, because it seems to me a matter of taste.
Fast play.
09 Very High Quality. Es muy ligerito y muy sencillo. Won't give it a bad rating, because it seems to me a matter of taste. Chadwick got it right with this one. И битвы непохожи на Nexus Ops. The illustrations are great, so as the "cards", as they are of thick cardboard.
Fast play. Would love to play it, but would hate to punch it.

Description Auto-Scooter at a fair: Each player moves his auto-scooter around the track. The game is played in a style somewhat similar to Clue with players moving to various cities trying to determine who the murderer is and where the murder happened. There is no room for mercy here. The publisher's description: Every village, every town has its own team. You and your fellow shutterbugs have been sent to Yellowstone National Park with only one day to get all the pictures for a twelve-month calendar.

Description French cycling game from the 1950's. Players try to march along the paw-print path to the finish by matching cards from their hands with the characters on the board. The most recognizable and unforgettable characters in the video game industry have teamed up to bring you the Nintendo Collector’s Edition of the world’s most popular board game, MONOPOLY. No controllers are necessary this time as you join forces with Mario, Luigi, Link, Zelda, Kirby and others on a quest to defeat your opponents and own it all.
Comments
Brillant.
Strong game. The rules are a bit non-intuitive, but not that difficult if you understand the scoring.
Very nice little game that is just on the cusp of getting good repeat play, but doesn't quite. It's a personal bias, but I find them bland and boring.
See Monopoly.

Description Poker is played with a standard deck of 52-cards, and sometimes Jokers are added as wild cards. The game contains a 30 minute video and 8 cards. Who will take the throne? When he stops at a upturned location card, it has to be opened. Joan of Arc or Marco Polo? One player controls the British forces, the other the German forces. They can use them to obtain useful items and NPC fellow travelers, to kelp with a quest, or to fight other players.
Comments
I know at least about ten better cardgames (with a traditional deck) This line was written before I discovered Stud Poker and especially Texas Hold'em. As a game, I don't find it very fun (I don't gamble either). Too much crap to remember, too.
Always play.

Description Snip from rules: Panzerblitz: Hill of Death. The description on the box cover states "Das lustige Wurfelspiel der bunten Welt im Jarheslauf". Die Tierschau has pictures of animals with a pair of dice with different totals on a board. The game is not intended to be competitive. Yet more horror was to come. Content: Yes, ANSWER KEY! 4 Character play pieces. He had been planning a tour of the gardens and his Artefacts as after-dinner entertainment. He rushed towards the oncoming fiends calling his friends to help.
Comments
I love the box and the armor type descriptions on the back, it keeps up with the old tradition. Rules are not as bad as some say.
A recent acquisition. Maybe once the errata sheet is out, I will get more enjoyment out of the game.
A great game marred by one of worst written rulebook I've seen.

Description From the Publisher's website: It addresses former Midgard RPG players, who don't find the time for role playing anymore, as well as fans of fantasy boardgames. A rectangle that doesn't have other stones or claimed territory in its interior can be claimed by a player. The winner crosses off one of the letters of "WALDO" on the score pad.
Comments
-Never played -This game looked intimidating -I really would like to have tried it out -Gone, but not forgotten. Great game!!! Here's hint--don't try to phyically spin the knob.
We only set it up yet. I try to find a gift for my wife...preferably a game! Midgard has a lot of text, and all in German, so that is a minus.
Herne charity.
Fun and annoying - just like the sport!

Description From publisher's website: The Fall of the Republic is at Hand! The object of the game is to arrive in Anchorage with the most money, which is found through panning for gold, visiting gold mines, and other events along the way. This is the target for the game round. Players combine their strategic skills and memory with a little bit of luck to keep all of the Magnetic Marbles on the game board each turn. Players choose secretly a card and then show them simultaneously.
Comments
Bluffing game. Fun game. The mechanic for moving the teacher around the classroom is innovative and the results are predictable and unpredictable depending on the location of the teacher and how many cards you've seen. Everything is better with fries. I like the turn order mechanic.
