Review of Shining Path at

Thanks to the author, Vance Strickland!

It’s apropos that he should say near the end of the review, “It’s akin to a smaller scale version of GMT ‘s popular COIN series.”

Vance may not know, but many of our Constant Readers do, that Shining Path was designed in 1995, and that in 1999 I designed a game on the 1954-62 Algerian War using a development of the Shining Path system. Volko Ruhnke was introduced to the Algerian game later by a colleague of his, and it was part of his inspiration in creating the GMT COIN system in 2011 with Andean Abyss (another Latin American situation).
