Crush the Kaiser – Buy both the rules and org. charts together
If you buy both the fast play rule set and the organisation and equipment charts together, its works out cheaper for you.
Remember to look at the EWM WW1 equipment lists as well.
Here?s what the reviews said about the Crush the Kaiser rules:
Miniature Wargames October 2012
?My first reaction on reading through was here is another laudable set which goes to show that Two Fat Lardies don?t have a monopoly on well researched and (I can well imagine) enjoyable to use rules?
?Closer reading soon followed whereupon it became apparent just what a well devised and I imagine heavily play-tested set this is. It would suit newcomers to the period or indeed wargaming as, though complete, the set is very clearly laid out. Also suitable for those more steeped in trench warfare lore who want rules which distinguish between creeping, static, lifting, whirlwind or drumfire barrages and who would consider a set of rules incomplete without rules covering the use of pigeons or dogs.?
Battlegames Issue 28
?These rules, although fast play, are not simplistic, so would ideally suit those players who already have some knowledge of wargames concepts and could sort out worthwhile scenarios and victory conditions. I suspect those who clicked with Rapid Fire could take very well to these rules and might find the change of period refreshing?
?Although the rules are designed for any size of figure…the accent on smaller units means they would be ideal for 28mm. Those with 20mm WW1 forces will find these rules ideal.?
?The mechanisms are quite straightforward as you expect from fast play rules and give a quick yet bloody game?
Wargames Illustrated on-line Feb 2012
?These rules slip neatly into the gap between rules like Through the Mud and the Blood and the Great War on the one hand, and Great War Spearhead and Squarebashing on the other.?
?In a test game the rules were easy to follow, the game seemed to flow and a decision was quickly reached. More artillery was needed to cut the wire, suppress the defenders and to cut off re-inforcements next time I think ? just like the real war thinking in fact!?
Wargames Soldiers and Strategy Issue 59:
?The Crush the Kaiser series is recommended if you want to play large fast play WW1 battles. The rules will provide a great basis for recreating the decisive battles of the Western Front.?
