Thanks for the video. A nice overview/review of the game. I think giving a historical overview prior to the review was an excellent idea. I preordered this game based on the Panzerblitzesque artwork, plus I like tactical games. I thought the game would be too complex for me, but I was pleasantly surprised. A lot of the complexity is baked into the data cards and charts, once you learn those the game plays quickly. Also, the advanced and optional rules are modular, so the game is customizable to one’s own taste. I agree with you about the paper map; it should have been mounted like No Retreat or Labyrinth, especially since I will probably play the game a lot.
