Struggle for Europe and Asia being offered on HBG.com
« on: January 02, 2014, 02:49:39 PM »
Just noticed it is being offered on Historical Board Gaming website.

http://www.historicalboardgaming.com/The-Struggle-For-Europe_p_727.html

Kind of cool is all.  Of course noticed it is totally different from what I have, guess now called the first edition.  Will have to see if Dave Simmons has the 2nd edition for when go back to Alaska for "Davecon" .  :o

I just got some of HBG miniatures in Monday and have to say they are will worth it!  Just can't wait for the Russian pieces to get back into stock.

Yes - the update (second edition ) is a much better game and Consim (in my opinion) than the original game.  The map is a big improvement as well.  The only downside is that the game takes about 2x as long to play as the original game (1939 scenario is about 40-60 hours to play until 1945) - but it is a blast if you can leave it set up somewhere or play it over the course of 3 days.
