Tim Stone from Rock Paper Shotgun wrote about Comrades and Barons in his wargaming column The Flare Path: Infinite Patience. I new about Tim's articles, but in the marketing period I decided not to send him the game because Comrades and Barons in not a wargame at all. But he discovered the game himself, providing a pleasant surprise to me.
Not that I’d want to imply Comrades and Barons is a game of great depth. Behind the stylish visuals and well-chosen soundtrack, this is a fairly mechanical, luck-dominated solo card game – albeit a fairly mechanical, luck-dominated solo card game that can consume lunch-hours with ease, and surreptitiously slip books about Spartacists and the Latvian War of Independence onto your nightstand.
I agree about the depth. Yet I have to add that I doubt Tim had books about our Independence War - they would have to be written and translated to English first, but for some reason in Latvia that just doesn't happen.
