Undaunted: North Africa
45m - 60m
2 - 2 Players
Card drafting games are games in which players pick cards from a limited subset, such as a common pool, to gain some advantage (immediate or longterm) or to assemble hands of cards that are used to meet objectives within the game.
Really enjoyed this - thematically, the game punishes you for bad military tactics, like rushing out of cover. I liked the terrain, objectives, card art and the deckbuilding, with crap Fog of War clogging hands and sacrificing unit actions for initiative.
Vehicles add unneeded complexity to the standard undaunted game, and make the board hard to read. Scenarios seem very swingy, resulting in either very short games or endless dice rolling.
Yet to be played--no opponent available. Was hoping to pick up the Reinforcements box as well, but missed my chance.
