GOSS Rules Overview – Part 1

And so it begins…

This is the first post in a series of posts introducing Decision GamesGrand Operational Simulation Series (GOSS). I picked for this purpose Hurtgen: Hell’s Forest, the second game in the series. I have never played this game nor do I have any particular GOSS experience.

Wait…what?

As mentioned in my last post I would like to cover the steps between unboxing a game and reviewing a game. I want to focus on questions like: What is the game about and what does it try to achieve? How well are the rules written? What does it take to learn the game? How much time and effort do you have to invest to get the game to your table? What can you expect from your first game? Was it worth it? etc.

I hope that if you don’t know GOSS or if you are not sure if this particular game is for you, my posts might be of some help. Also, let me know if you have a particular question that you think I should try to answer.
