The old country

Newly arrived and out of the wrapper, is the second edition of Mark Simonitch‘s Ukraine ’43 game, produced by GMT.


I have the first edition, but wanted to buy the new one because it is a complete redesign. Mark has used some of the successful techniques applied in his other recent designs (France ’40, for example) and taken a fresh look at the situation. As usual, the graphical look is crisp, clear, and attractive. A quick scan of the rules suggests it’s going to be fun to play as well.
