Ghost in the house

On the table is Ghost Division, a Joseph Miranda game design from World at War magazine #38 published by Decision Games. This is a solitaire game where you take Rommel’s place as commander of the 7th Panzer Division in the 1940 opening blitzkrieg in the west.

I have laid out the map, cut the counters, and read the setup instructions. Unfortunately, the rules are not as good as they should be – and are hindered by some incorrect printing on the counters – so I have had to spend time on ConsimWorld to find out how you are supposed to setup the game, and how you are supposed to play it. That’s never a great start. However, I’m going to give the game the benefit of the doubt, to see whether it is any good. I like the concept, the situation, and the focus. But how does it actually play?
