Excellent review on Tanks. I bought this just before Christmas for about £16. It is a fantastic game and as you correctly pointed out it’s a game not a simulation. The rules are easy to explain and play. My regular opponent, is my five year old son, and he has picked up the basics of moving and shooting.
The game package is a great deal, I couldn’t believe how much stuff came in the box, cards, dice and 2D terrain. The only thing I was disappointed with was there was no tank card for Stug’s as I have a few of these already. I guess that will be a blister pack I buy in the future.
All in all, it’s a great dads and lads game, with great replay value and can be played on a small table in under an hour.
