The rules are simplistic and in no way capture the complexity and diversity of the units fighting in the SCW (Communists, Anarchists, International Brigades, etc, etc.). The map is ok but there is no terrain on the map, nor are airbases or cities part of the play. There are no naval units either. The rules speak of other/future version but this apparently did not materialize. The game has potential and if it was more like HBG 36.39 then it might be worth it but based on this version, I would say avoid. Trying to get a copy of GMT's Spanish Civil War instead. If one wants to add house rules to enhance the OOB rules, maybe...
