My reaction during the first rules go-thru was an emphatic OMGIF(!).
This is not your usual card driven game, and it sure as hell isn’t anything like a hex and counter game. It’s well….different.
The point here is that if I wasn’t playing FTF, I’d probably scan the rules, admire the beautiful components and put it back on the shelf. Maybe, I wouldn’t have bought it at all.
That’s a good thing about having an opponent, it encourages you to play something different. Sure, many times Tim and I will play an old favorite. I guess that’s the wargaming version of comfort food. But, it is nice to try something different, no matter how much it bends your brain.
I’ll be putting together the usual AAR next week, along with Tim’s comments. Have a lot of studying to do this week!
