This year I decided to play in one game on Saturday which meant I had to buy a Saturday registration ($20). I played in one session of the six session Dien Bien Phu games. I first saw this layout back in 2002/2003 and was really impressed, but didn't get a chance at that time to try out the game. The terrain layout was great and the historic scenario's gave you a great understanding of the battle. I was lukewarm on the homegrown ruleset though, and it was a bit crowded at the 8 player game session. It was still enjoyable.
