Started to play the boardgame Barbarossa: Kiev to Rostov by GMT Games with Richard today. More information on the game which is part of their Eastern Front Series can be found here: http://www.gmtgames.com/p-137-barbarossa-kiev-to-rostov.aspx. While it is certainly complex, it plays well. The introductory material on this website, http://www.wargalley.com/efs/index.php, was very helpful and a good way to introduce a game to new players.
I had grown up with SPI’s War in the East and Panzer Group Guderian, so while this was familiar territory, the game mechanics and detail was refreshing and interesting.
