Hopefully I will review it soon.

A quick scan looks goid. Though I do wish it had a campaign systematic actual names crew etc. Maybe a future expansion will do it. More tanks included than I imagined which is cool.

Price isn't too bad when you consider what you get. Also when the likes of Combat by Compass Games just came out with a £130 price tag then TD is a bargain.

Really???? Bummer, I will remember next time

Question
I went to NWS, what do they mean by a Ready Shelf Game? What's it missing?


Wow, NWS is cheap on everything
Thanks

'Ready Shelf' seems to be another way of saying 'in stock'.

I checked a couple of games and when I used the pull down menu for 'Ready Shelf' it gave a total of how many were left in stock.

I have to keep NWS in mind; I had forgot about them selling board games. Nice prices and he will try to match or beat other offers.


I found a game I was looking for $25 cheaper than the usual places I buy my games.


Edit: I changed 'Shelf Ready' to 'Ready Shelf' because I entered it wrong.

Yes but the game will last a life time if you take care of it, unlike computer games.

Again think of the production costs and Tank Duel weighs a ton as it's full of goodies.

Just read and played through the tutorial and it's one hell of a game.

Solo system is rock solid aswell. Very exciting stuff indeed. Immersive and tense.

Hope a campaign system is designed as a future expansion.

Not at all. You are best playing both sides a few times then move onto the solo game.

It's all played using cards, no endless dice rolls no masses of charts either.

Just reading the tutorial playthrough was exciting stuff.

The solo bot Robota looks solid and well designed.

This should become a classic, esp as a solo game. Designer has said Campaign system coming out in future if it sells well which I believe it is, would be a crime if it didn't.

Add a campaign and we definitely have an all time classic on our hands. Currently one of the best solo wargame experience I've had.

I will try it and see how it goes. I must have at least 10 games never opened from the coin system, dvg and GMT. The darn computer just makes things easier

Shipping weight was seven pounds. Then I found not one, but two Elefants inside. Seriously though, what a well put together game.
The tutorial is very detailed and I love the artwork and hard stock. Lot's of fun to be had.

I still haven't opened it and watched a video yesterday. I have to try it this weekend. For some reason, I buy the games and I don't open them. I just bought Fire in the Lake as well. I wanted to do a video on the unboxing but didn't have a device to keep the camera steady.

What is the best device for filming a game on a table?
