JU87 Stuka Jericho Trumpets
by Frederick E. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 07/27/2019 21:46:45

Originally bought this game on the strength of a couple other Lumaca games I have that I enjoy (and for 2 bucks it's hard to go wrong!). I have found it to be a fun little diversion. Simple, quick to play, engaging the imagination, it provides a fun narrative with the Stuka subject being great chrome. I look forward to the promised expansion; I want to do some East Front tank-busting!

Attacco a Malta
by ashley m. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 07/10/2019 16:40:56

this game is actually very good. I have it and it's companion game "Attacco a Suda', (Italian small craft attack on the Brits at Suda Bay, Crete, 26 march 1941.) This game concerns the ill-fated Italian attack on Malta by the Xª Flottiglia MAS on 25 and 26 July 1941. Xª Flottiglia MAS is considered the world's greatest underwater commando group ever assembled (these folks were tougher than the US Navy Seals of today. FYI - the Seals came from the USN UDT's which were formed after the USN found out about Xª Flottiglia MAS).

the game The print out was a little difficult, because US paper sizes are very different from European sizes. I had to go from European paper size to US by blowing up and shrinking the game and finally use 11"x17" to get the size of game map that I wanted. No big deal.

Once I had everthing printed out, then read the rules a couple of times and thank goodness I am learning Italian (thanks to Marco who has become a good friend), as I found a "portafortuna", or as known in English, a lucky charm, LOL!!!

I like this idea in Lumaca Games. And to be honest, the Xª Flottiglia MAS should have had 5 or 6 of these on those two fateful days. The game has search lights and a very good early warning detection for the British in the game that unfortunately got me. I have played the game 21 times and only won 5. Out of the 5 games won, 3 were because of the portafortuna. It is tough. But rightfully as it should be.

la fine della recensione The cost of the game is very resonable, VERY. It really isn't a very big download or prints out big, but I like my games HUGE (so I can see them), that's why I fiddled with the sizes. The game is not perfect, but there are NO perfect games. The game has a lot of very interesting ideas and concepts. For example, how Marco made the British searhlightes work in the game especially with the timing of the different areas.

It's a keeper and if you only play it a few times, it can be a real eye opener towards the Italian underwater commandos - Xª Flottiglia MAS was tough.

Thanks Marco for a very nice series of games.

SM79 Damned Hunchback PDF
by William G. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 01/08/2018 19:19:31

SM79 Damned Hunchback is a card game of low complexity. There are only a few rules to learn, and you can be playing a game in minutes of reading them. A game/mission takes a minute or two to complete, but the game is additctive. You will want to start another game/mission to try and get that torpedo hit after the last mission missed its target.

You're at the mercy of the shuffle of the deck, but knowing when to release the torpedo is key. You are not always gaurenteed a hit even when you make it to the target.I could see playing this game and tracking a group of aircraft attacking a target and seeing how many hits are scored.

The rules could use some clarity being that there are only a few rules. The cursive text on the "Damages" card is a bit hard to read for my eye sight. I could see combining the "Distance" and "Damages" cards into a single card and using a couple of tokens to track the respected values, but the two cards as is allows you to have a tokenless game to play.
