One of my favorite solitaire wargames and my top DVG game as well. Clear rules and great production values make it a joy to learn and play. The tactical play stage of the game has more depth and complexity than the other "Leader" games which gives your AC more options and flexibility. Highly recommended.
The manual is somewhat confusing but there is a great sci-fi game in there if you put in the hours to learn it. It is a brutal exercise in survival as it seems that all the systems at the base were designed by the lowest bidder. All the more fun when you manage to win though.
As expected, this is a thick game mat, 5mm. Very good quality. Arrived in its own box, no folded. Very valuable for playing like on a game table. I bought a second one burgundy this time, just saying...
Great game, good replay value, and plays quick. What else could you ask for?
