Prussians decide to conquer the world again

Albeit, with much heavy sighs and shaking of heads....

I had an opportunity today to leaf through Dystopian Wars 2.0, and it appears Spartan addressed my primary concern -- the indecipherable "to hit" determinations.  Yay.  However, judging from my flip-through, it appears that what gains they made in streamlining the target numbers, they lost two-fold in complexity in other areas, particularly boarding rules.  

But at the end of the day, while the rules are far from elegant, they are no worse a brain-burner than Warhammer Fantasy or Malifaux, two games I do enjoy, despite their daunting learning curves.  The learning investment is worth the net enjoyment of the models, the scope/scale of the game, the aesthetic, the diversity, and the support/community.

I now have my copy of Dystopian Wars 2.0, and I can once again seek world domination.
