Hoping to try "A Victory Denied" tonight

I've had it for a few days but have not gotten down to playing it. Reviews have been good. I'm looking forward to it.

It's very interesting. I'm in turn 2 right now. I'm still working through all the rules. I'm sure I've made mistakes. I let a PVO unit retreat until I found they could not retreat after attack. Still going to take a while to get this one down. I'm still figuring out the activations. The overall game play lends itself to good solitaire play as well as good repeat play.

This is quite an engrossing game. I can't go back to PANZERGRUPPE GUDERIAN now, because of this title! Won't even pretend I've cracked this thing. Going to take me a while. I find it even better than A VICTORY LOST, although I suspect I'm in the minority on that.

I got it fully set up last night. It took longer than I expected because I was still resolving some rules issues. I'm off today so I hope to try a couple of turns at least to get a feel for the flow and form of the game.

It looks great. And only one errata problem with one of the counters. But since there are two styles, you still have a complete set of counters that are error-free. The reviews on BGG are really interesting, especially the negative ones, where they complain about "design for effect". I wonder what a game would be like that was not designed for effect?
