CityFight AAR
« on: March 05, 2012, 08:47:31 AM »
A very good AAR of a recent playing of the old SPI CityFight game is posted over at

It's a good read, but there are occasional spelling errors you need to puzzle through.

the wrap-up

Final thoughts
SPI's CityFight is a tense game. In this game, there was very little contact between the opposing sides, yet their presence was felt at all times.
This game seems to be a pretty accurate simulation of the uncertainty and fog-of-war that would be present in a modern urban conflict. Unlike most wargames that give players omniscience over the battlefield, CityFight leaves you almost completely in the dark. Turns can be deadly quiet, almost boring, and all of a sudden, a firefight breaks out. This sounds a lot like reports from actual veterans.
I really enjoyed this game and I'm looking forward to get a chance to play again and experiment with some of the more advanced rules.

I've always had an eye on this one.  Is it solitaire friendly?  I'll have to go pull it up on BGG and see what is being said over there (after I read this AAR which may shed some light on my question I'm sure!).
