Unboxing Gathering Storm from GMT Games

Brant Guillory, 23 July 2020 ~ #UnboxingDay

As discussed in this Spring’s podcast about alt-history games, the idea of rearranging the circumstances that got us to the start of a particular war have always been fascinating.  So when I got a chance to get ahold of Gathering Storm from GMT, I jumped at it, and looking forward to chance to give this one a play

THE BOX!

It’s a standard GMT box.  You know what you’re getting.

 

And it’s packed

 

There are 2 different maps: a large area-based one, and a smaller hex map of just Central Europe

 

There are a LOT of pages to go through here.  It’s not quite the reference-card-palooka that LNLP’s W@W’85 is, but there’s a lot here.

 

There are 5 countersheets, and not a ton of detail on the counters, which makes them attractive in their own right.

 

Cards, to drive the turn-by-turn action.

 

Let’s hope the plague subsides soon and we can get back to face-to-face gaming for 2-5 of your friends around this game on the table.


Thanks for joining the Armchair Dragoons for our monthly #UnboxingDay; we hope you get a kick out of checking out the regiment inspecting their new games.
You can always leave us your feedback in our discussion forum, or in the comment area below.
The regiment also occasionally musters on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube, and occasionally at a convention near you.
