This game had been on my wish list forever, well years at least. I finally bought it last month and it's totally worth it!
Seriously, what better way to get into the holiday spirit than leading your squad of fellow reindeer into battle, blowing up elves with grenades, and kicking back some egg nog for extra power?
I'm a sucker for cartoon-y artwork and anything Christmas, so that might explain my enthusiasm in part. The fact that it's designed to be played solo is a big plus, since that's my preferred way to wargame.
Best of all though, it's a good little tactical game. The scenario design is good and use a couple of mechanisms to keep the solitaire player on their toes including giving the enemy near endless reinforcements, constraints on player movement (in the first scenario), and turn limits. There's even an Out of Ammo rule.
My only question/concern is why the M1 gets needs a 4+ at a range of 1 hex, a 3+ at 2-3 hexes, and goes up again to 4+ at 4-10 hexes.
