Last weekend I headed over to my buddy Keith’s gaming mecca for another great Mark Simonitch ‘XX game. Ardennes ’44 certainly lived up to its reputation as one of the best Battle of the Bulge wargames.
I should temper my enthusiasm as we only made it through most, but not all, of the six turn scenario. We were learning our way around the map I felt. I left with the same feelings I had after playing France ’40, (relatively) low overhead and smooth gameplay.
Certainly we played enough to see its potential and I’m looking forward to playing it again.
