Suffice it to say that this new edition is very pretty; the plastic figures really are good, and the artwork is once again excellent. I thought I might be able to resist this, but having now seen it, it’s firmly on my ‘must have’ list.
Well, Target Earth is the essentials of this game distilled down into a board game. It’s even playable solo, so I’m looking forward to getting to grips with this when we on holiday over Easter.
The only down-side is that there are no nice figures with the game – everything is card counters. I’m looking at ‘pimping’ this game by adding 2mm dropships, tanks and fightes from Ground Zero Games, and 15mm troops from Critical Mass.
Unfortunately, a quick tot-up of what I would want for the game comes to over £50, so this will have to be one of those projects which will have to be added to the ‘nice to do, eventually’ list.
