Dave and I had great fun yesterday evening trying out Clash of Giants. We ran through the first five turns of the Tannenburg game in less than two hours, reading the rules as we went along (the whole thing is 15 turns). The game is beautifully produced, with large, good-looking counters and an attractive map. It took me back to wargaming's golden age in the 70s, games that I cut my teeth on like Napoleon at Waterloo or Winter War with low counter densities, simple rules, and absorbing gameplay with loads of replay value.
