I was born at a very young age. I plan on living forever. So far, so good.

    I think it is worth mentioning there is a really nice sample of a gameplay with the rules nicely explained, available for download for free in “Download” section of the Radio Dishdash website – well done, guys!

    Game looks nice, very realistic and intuitive and packed full of action at the same time. My only concern is the number of modifiers to keep in mind, can slow down the game or cause weird situations like “I forgot about a modifier, you shouldn’t have hit me!”

    Hi YoungOlo thanks for the nice comments, we really appreciate that you took the time to write this.

    RE: your concern, we have found that after playing a few times most of our players have the modifiers in there heads and we play the game that if you make a mistake you stick to your result until the next game.

    Best of luck playing Skirmish Sangin, do let us know how you get on.
