I found that I enjoyed it quite a bit. There is some tension as things get busy on the map and then Soviet bombers get closer to their targets. It is awesome to see your streams of B-52s making for their Soviet cities. -- Eric Lai (gamer)

"A 10! ...Simply one of the best games and most fun I have had in some time. It is nicely set at a simple level for the period as the two sides imagined it might be - this is pre- ICBM period. If the US sub survives to get off 3 missiles, the Soviets are in trouble. Just enough strategy to not make it feel like you're just moving stuff - but not so much that it degrades the joyful aspect of this game...The negatives - gee, I didn't really see any. The designers intent was met as they designed a game around what the perceptions were - and not the reality per se of the era. As such one can only but conclude this is an overwhelming success in terms of game design, playability and fun." The Verdict on RED MENACE by White Dog Games is WOWSER!" -- Robert Smith, Panzer Digest

"...can provide an interesting narrative...a game (play) to remember."

Scot Krol, Grogheads


"Good times. I love this game- it's simple, which usually isn't my thing, but it's light and I love classic aviation hardware.  Jeff Dougherty, Designer of Persian Incursion"
