I spent some time this morning going through the game collection and have marked ONLY 50 games as "Want To Play". This is to get a reasonable (?!?!) expectation of getting some of them played.

Make comments as you wish but I would like some prodding from you to get me to make a priority list. I'm looking for games that are fun to play against another gamer, face-to-face, using CyberBoard, Aide de Camp2, VASSAL or even solo.

Please thumb the games that you like.

I have played this once while at a training class in the Washington D.C. area against a live opponent. He ran the British in a good manner but this just made me enjoy the game better.

A solo game that seems to beg to be played but the length of the rules is a tad daunting.

One of my two Czechoslovakia games. I want to see what the defenders could have done to give the invaders a bloody nose since I already know the historical results.

I wanted to like this when it came out but the crumbled shopping bag mountains and the convoluted combat system sort of kept me away after the first try.

I had the older edition and enjoyed it except for the big slingshots and Risk-like balance, (i.e. after you get the advantage the game is a run away). I'm hoping that the newer rules will be fun and challenging.

I can't help myself. I saw it three years in a row being played by the same two wargamers, (God bless the soul of the lost one and his family), at the ConsimWorld Expo in Tempe, Arizona. A very intriguing game.

Possibly my favorite WWII Desert game. The Allied position will get your panties into a wad as you see the Axis forces enter the map on two edges. Probably my most played game on this list but it has been a long time since the last game.

I had this ages ago and reacquired it but missing pieces. This means that CyberBoard will have to suffice.

I would like to play a good game on Guadalcanal that won't take as long as the original campaign. I played many games of Bloody Ridge on HexWars.com and would like to see something a little more strategic.
