Yup, there is no getting around it. The board game is exactly the same.

What's really sad about this is that a publisher of quality games, and a well know designer can turn out such a very poor product. I'd be tempted to say that they lost interest in it and never really finished it off and didn't ever really play test it.

What's worse is the number of 'gamers' on BGG who sing the games praises even though it is so evidently flawed.

Takes all sorts, I guess.

However, I am vindicated, my integrity remains intact and my reputation relatively untarnished.

I rest my case - thank you, Vance. :notworthy:

It was ratings and posts that made me buy it. In the end, regardless of historical accuracy, it was far too simple for me. I enjoyed my first playthrough, but after that, it was just not holding my interest.

I think that's the first Bulge boardgame I've ever played

I've no problem with simple, easy to play games, which this obviously is, and maybe pitched as an entry level game, but I think its a great pity that a game so distorts history to the point that it does not reflect that historical event in any meaningful way.

Again, I stress that this is my view and other may well disagree, which is fine.
