Really did set up a longer scenario. All those counters on an absurdly small play-aide. Really started playing. Initial German losses, rubble placement…But it was no use.
Thunder At Cassino just doesn’t work for me as a solo game. Too much of a shell game. Wait, Shoot, Move, Wait? Unless the game has a unique form of compartmentalization (for the lack of a better word – example might be actions that must be performed by one side, etc), you have to be Schizoid or suffering from Alzheimer’s to play two-player games solo. It can work…..done it all my playing days. But with this game, everything depends on the other side’s action or anticipated intent. And, you just can’t hide intent from yourself.
So, down it will come. Maybe shipped off to E-Bay at some point. Someone else will enjoy it. I know Tim won’t. Not his cup of tea.
But, I really, really did start. See.
