Very fine simulation Having read (and re-read) Beevor's book on Crete, I thoroughly enjoyed this game. It can be pretty frustrating in the early stages, when you have paratroops encircled and unable to reconstitute units, and (paradoxically) gets rather anticlimactic towards the end because by then you're just mopping up and you don't need 2/3 of your troops, but it's still a challenge. The only feature I'd like to see added is a "cancel last move" button because, especially on a phone, it's easy to tap the wrong unit.
Not his best While still better than 99.9% of the games out there, this is not Joni's best. The beginning is a nail biter: the arriving paratroops struggle in the face of overwhelming forces to expand their drop zones, to capture airfields, and to simply survive. Once the German forces build up, the rest of the game is a snooze: the player is simply pushing pieces around and making overwhelming attacks. Excellent beginning, but too much tedious mop up. I have to subtract a star from Joni's usual 5 stars.
Great game. Very challenging. Only thing I would like to see added is Partisan activity in captured territory forcing the Germans to commit forces to put uprisings down. This really happened.
Probably the best JN game so far.
Crete 41 Against the grain on this one. PATIENCE required early on. So outnumbered. Hang in there pays off. Must say unique campaign. Joni dosnt make easy games/ simulations. Guess a balanced game would be too easy.Excellent update
Great one. I really enjoyed it. Keep up the good work.
