Afrika Video Review

14 September 2012 2 Comments



Standard Combat Series game covering the campaign in North Africa from 1940 until 1942. This is the first edition of the Charles S. Roberts Best World War II game of 1993. Afrika  is a fast-paced game of mobile warfare at the operational level. The heart of the game is the supply system, which highlights the logistical aspect of desert warfare.

DAR (wrap and review at end of final video)


Recovering hobo, one-time actor and street corner philosopher, now trying to enjoy the less fine things in life (like everyone else does). One thing has been nearly constant in my life - gaming. Even before discovering wargames (at the tender age of 10 or so - purely fortuitous), I would play out family games (including the 3M series) solitaire. But, life situations interfered not too long ago, and I was largely without board gaming for the better part of a decade. The last couple of years have seen me devoting myself to the hobby again - and learning a lot of the newer designs - so, I'm looking from the eyes of an old grognard (ah, how I fought against THAT term when first used on me) but an open mind and willingness to see if newer games appeal.

    Isn’t this the same review you posted on Board Game Geek a year ago?

    Yep. Most of what I put up here is older stuff.
    New stuff makes it, when done, but my current epic
    undertaking has cut output.

    The advantage here is that things are coordinated into a
    single post.
