This War of Mine (board game)

I was fortunate enough to get in a game of THIS WAR OF MINE ... board-game. One of the guys at the meetup recently got his Kickstarter copy (with all of the upgrades!). We played a 4 player game and two of the players didn't like it, but I and the guy who owned it LOVED it!

I have to say that the Kickstarter was really nicely done, but what made it good was the mechanics and the overall atmosphere of the game. Some people have said the game is depressing (it's about a war from the perspective of noncombatants) but I didn't take things so seriously (which might say a lot about me :shock: ).

The game has the ability to be played solo and and seems like it would hold a lot of its play/replay strength. I would recommend this game!
