Easter at Tobruk is a campaign game for Platoon Leader, Critical Hit’s rules system for ASL-compatible campaign games. It is basically a re-done version of the 1941 Australian-German Platoon Leader campaign game of the same published with the original Platoon Leader rules (i.e., for free), with a duplicate set of some Afrika Korps counters added (not needed to play this product), quickly cobbled together to be released at the same time as a new edition of the Platoon Leader rules. It is played on two desert geomorphic mapboards, not a historical map.
What is more, at $29.95, this product is perhaps the most outrageously expensive product in the history of Critical Hit. For nearly $30 one gets two sheets of cardstock, a sheet with an overlay (although this sheet was missing from the review copy), and a small countersheet that was not even designed for this product (but rather for another product).
Categorically, Easter at Tobruk is not even remotely close to being worth $29.95. It would be somewhat expensive at $14.95.
For only $15.95, a representative from Desperation Morale will come to your house and kick you in the balls–and it will still be a better value than purchasing Easter at Tobruk.
