Guerilla War Struggle Is A New Entertainment!
If you're looking for a quiet game in the spirit of Christmas Peace and Goodwill, you won't find it here!GUERILLA was published by the (old) Avalon Hill Game Company in 1994, when guerilla warfare was among other things very prominently featured on evening TV news. Unfortunately board games rarely tackle contemporary political or social topics, so this alone makes the game something special.

No, it is not based on an Ed Wood movie.

Successors 3rd Edition Review
Given that I love card-driven wargames, and that I love multi-player wargames and that I find Here I Stand difficult to get to the table due to the length and number of players, it’s natural that I should eventually gravitate toward what’s usually labelled as the most approachable of the multi-player CDG’s, Successors, re-released by GMT last year in a spanking reprint with new art and a mounted board. This was an interesting game for me to try because it was the first time ever that I’d played a historical game entirely on the basis of mechanical appeal rather...
