Nemo's War: 2nd Edition by The Scret Cabal Gaming Podcast
Thematically this game is freakin' awesome...I've played this game four and a half times now, [and it] is quickly becoming, I believe, one of my favorite games of all time...It's just awesome in every single way. ... Those motives are probably the most genius way of changing a gameplay kind of style that I've ever seen in any board game ever.
Nemo's War 2nd Edition by Elemeeple
Wonderful game. Very thematic. Lots of moving pieces and yet it's not fiddly...and even though you are rolling a lot of dice, by gods you have so many ways to mitigate everything that comes at you. I highly recommend it, this is a keeper for sure.
Preview of Nemo's War 2nd Edition by Roger's Reviews
This second edition of Nemo's War is simply a great game. It may even be the best solitaire game VPG has made.
An Early Look at Nemo's War 2nd Edition by Erik Dewey (Indie Cardboard)
I was very impressed with the depth and variety included in this game, to say nothing of how much fun Nemo's War is to play. This is a great solo game, and one that does a solid job of capturing the feel of its source material. If you are a fan of classic literature, engaging single-player experiences, or just want to go on a thrilling adventure, I highly recommend checking out this second edition of Nemo’s War.
