A not often gamed or written about part of WWII.
Eastern Afrika, had most of the combats receiving the short end of the equipment stick. Which can often make for an interest and innovative use of tactics. If the leadership was up to it!
Kim Kanger clocks in just 8 pages of rules with Designer notes. This feels more like a magazine game in size of map, number of counters and rules booklet. The map is tastefully done. The counter fonts are clear, and use NATO symbols. Setup data on them, # of stacking points they use and..wait… WTF. Shiny.. I mean laminated. Laminated I hear you say. Yep. After punching I am sorry to report that these skinny counters stick to your fingers as you brush past them or place them down. Hanging onto your skin until gravity does its work. Tragic.
So the bar for success with this game just shot up. AFter 1 turn I have had to reseat, reset or re-situated counters that have adhered, abducted or attached themselves to me.
A place for everyone and
