Seven Days To The River Rhine -First Contact

Postby WingAttackPlan-R » Sat Jan 11, 2020 3:28 pm

Took these rules out for their first spin back in May 2019; `Seven Days to the River Rhine` from Great Escape games, and have been playing them ever since.
This first game saw an East German horde fall on the plucky British defenders of democracy and freedom.

The East German horde make their numbers count. Their losses are higher, but then they can afford to be.

The East Germans carry the day, but it`s the rules that are the real winner. The ability to react to an opponent`s move, seize initiative, and gamble all with your command token pool, keeps both players engaged all through the game, and right up to the end. No sitting watching the other player take an hour to make their tank park move, like you get with certain other rules systems.

Best Cold War rules I`ve played, and I`ve tried a few! :D
Your not constrained by TO&E, you can put a reasonable amount of models on the table without slowing things down, the games are usually well balanced, and both players are engaged for the whole game. Can be played in any scale, and the rule book is a one-stop shop with rules and stats, along with an online errata at the GEG website.
I`ve played eleven games now, and highly recommend these rules, especially if you have already forked-out for Battlefront models and have become disillusioned with Team Yankee. Fear not! The money was not wasted: 7DttRR is here to save the day!

It`s the end of The World as we know it, and I feel fine!!!! :twisted:
