The VP total was passed a little while ago but all in all a fun game that requires some significant thinking ahead for good play by both sides.2013-12-20 12.49.572013-12-20 12.50.13Reflecting on this game I think it has a lot of merit to it and provides you with excellent decision points, excellent theme, and captures a lot of the historical  elements. While this particular play did not follow in the footsteps of history on this front, I felt that the Germans were very lucky and the early heavy losses for the Soviets really hurt them.

This might be a problem with the game or possibly how I played. In hindsight in this play thru it was possible for the Soviets to have done better with better choices of Chit actions and more effective use of the forces available.
