    Neuroshima Hex is a blast. It’s a bit of a puzzle to solve with all the initiatives, but the more you play it, the faster you get at resolving battles. Even though the playing area is only 19 hexes, the game makes you think quite a bit about placement. I would say this is a medium weight strategy game that works well with 2-4 players [4 players can be played all-for-one or as two teams].

    Z-man games has recently published an expansion pack for Neuroshima Hex called Babel 13 which allows players to use the entire board as well as terrain pieces which can obstruct long range firing and the like. The expansion also adds 2 new armies to the four that come in the base set.
