Reviews

“Remember the name ‘Valentin Lievre‘. If this relatively young (21), inexperienced* French coder can produce a WW2 TBS as compendious and competent as Operation Citadel in under a year then heaven knows what wonders he’ll produce in the decades to come.”
RockPaperShotgun

“Overall, I’m pleasantly surprised with Operation Citadel. There’s a lot to like here if you’re in the mood for a light, simple Panzer General-like. The inclusion of the gigantic scenarios offers something unique and interesting, and the potential of the building tools is almost unlimited.”

“Hex of Steel will undoubtedly stay one of the marking title of the beginning of this 21st century”

With a failed Kickstarter campaign and 53 euros in our pocket, my brother and I decided to get the game done even with all odds against us !

Why should you be getting HoS and not the other wargames out there ? I'm glad you asked !
