Europe Engulfed

Quick look by Moritz Eggert

One of the best ETO WWII wargames in recent years, large in scope but still potentially accessible to the light fare A&A crowd (as some rule mechanics actually have some similarities). The Special Action system works especially well, and gives the game an interesting unpredictability without cumbersome rules. All in all the game is much more complicated than many think, and some special rules exceptions are well hidden in the rules (which are otherwise well edited) and the end game may drag into an endless dicefest if the axis player simply hoards all his units in a few well defended spaces. But still this is an excellent game that will satisfy many a gamer for years to come.
