No the video just shows you how to play the game. Which is a regular board wargame.

Board games?  They still make those?  

I was under the impression that they'd gone the way of cassette tapes and vinyl LP's.

Thought only the pre-Internet generation still played board games.

Hi

I do play boardgames :)
This is a nice one from GMT, the entire eastern front: "Illusions of Glory".
This one (also from GMT): "Reds!" is the Russian civil war 1918 - 1921.
The murder of Nicholas II and family is in the game, and might NOT happend actually.
The outcome of this does ofc have an influence on the game...
"Europe in Turmoil" is a new game (from Compass Games)  that is more a political game,
rather than a war game. The theme is the political struggle in Euriope in the years
before the war (Monarchsts, Liberals, Socialists etc. struggling for control).

Cheers!

Nice to see that there is still a place for these games in the world of the Internet.

I played board games, but, of course, I grew up in the pre-Internet generation.
