Fast, simple, not expensive, little errata, but only reasonably fun. (War game Review)

In his review on BoardGameGeek, Brendan Whyte first turns a critical eye towards the components and rules and lists their shortcomings. Game play fares better: “…the game is fast and quite fun”. Whyte then goes into comprehensive details covering game mechanics and spares no criticism for the game opponent (AI). His discussion concerning solitaire board games vs solitaire computer games is very interesting.

Really good review/replay. Hiew Chok Sien takes us through an overview of the game and then recounts a short scenario played by him and his gaming buddy Allen. Gives a nice feel for the game, and it's good to see 'Wilderness War' getting some renewed attention.
