So pursuing several game sites, I came across this Compass game offering. Anyone have it and had a chance to play it?

The opportunity to play a low complexity, strategic/operational level Napoleonic game is tempting. It seems to be a good introductory level game. Initial reading of the rules and certain sections seem a little open for interpretation.

I honestly looked kinda hard at that one at Gamers Armory the other day before I picked up Iron Curtain instead.

Yeah, Coalition from Compass, Coalitions from Phalanx. I am not sure they are my cup of tea, but I would surely like to try them.

Meet me on Twitter, BoardGameGeek, YouTube and Twitch!

Et vive citoyen général Bonaparte!

for me, Iron Curtain was more in my usual milieu, so I was sticking with what I know :)

By this time, the Titanic's deck chairs are in exactly the right spots.
