Review "I think this might be one of the most gorgeous board games ever published. The vectors of escape and little touches encountered will vary due to cards drawn and situations in play.
It makes for an exciting story as you scale down a couple of walls and gun it full speed with guards in hot pursuit. Its beautifully portrayed and it offers genuine atmosphere steeped in a chilling experience. I think Osprey Games hit it out of the park with redoing this.

The Colditz Myth: British and Commonwealth Prisoners of War in Nazi Germany
Start your review of Colditz: The Full Story. Dec 30, Tracey Wilde rated it it was amazing. If this had been billed as fiction I would have thought it was far fetched. Absolutely fascinating and highly recommended.
