I have it on good authority that Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il really liked World in Flames. They designed it, even.

This not entirely serious geeklist has more details.

This is a decent team game if you have all day and night and love hard core war games. 3x4 or 3x3 or I'm not sure the other combos allowed.

The second game that came to mind.

This game is the perfect simulation of a Grand Strategic Game in WWII. The economic decisions are not abstracted like in many games and they force you to plan in advance. You want to build an aircraft carrier? Fine, but it is going to take you a couple of years.

BUT, this game has received A LOT of expansions. Each expansion has enlarge the picture. In this way, each plane counter represented less planes, each infantry unit counter less soldiers and each ship counter 1 individual ship.

You even got to track Pilots! (not individually mind you).

But, for me the definitive jumping of the shark in WiF's expansions are Italian Frogmen.

2-3 men! A grand strategic game has counters to represent 2-3 men! You've jumped the shark here.

Nevertheless, playing WiF with everything in is one of my all times dreams.

Technically, an off weekend, but four of us from the gaming group restarted the Guadalcanal scenario to help get the naval rules to sink in. I had to leave at 9:00 but it looked like advantage IJN when I left.

I bought this on an auction here. Got it for a nice price. 60 pages of rules. And its big. I told myself "When I retire, this is getting played."
Problem is, Im not the greatest at reading rules. And I think this set of rules will blow my mind.

I could also put Empire of the Sun here too. I P500ed it. But Im thinking of dropping out. I think the complexity will be too much for me.

But what else will I do when I retire but play games?

Edition: 5th Edition

Condition: NO MAPS! I got this second hand and discovered to my dismay everything included, sans maps. So it's essentially a parts copy, but in excellent condition

Reserve: Make me a reasonable offer

A silly one to mess around with, but it's a rule that helped speed up things and we were not a bit disturbed about the change.

£3.99, BHF Penrith. 5th Edition, looks in great condition but I need to do a full audit. Previous owner included a nice sorting tray, which should help with the audit.

I go in this charity shop almost every time I pass - which is often - and my beaming face at this purchase provoked comment from the shop assistant. She now has my work phone number to alert me of any wargames in stock in future. So stay out of the Penrith BHF, bargain hunters! It's locked down.

Edit: Still not got round to counting the counters, but I did find that the box contains a two part map from the Napoleonic game La Bataille d'Albuera: Espagnol.

My big game news: I finished my World in Flames game on Saturday. Our first play was 19 January 2013 - so just about two years exactly, playing by vassal and skype, ideally once a week (though there were times where Real Life meant we missed 3-4 weeks in a row), average about three hours per session. I always feel bereft after finishing a huge and pleasurable project - a big game like WIF, a very long but excellent book, a great TV series, etc.

Friday night I had a game of Warriors of God, in which I suffered my worst defeat ever. My position fell apart mid-game and I couldn't recover. At least I then won the next game, Thunder Alley.

PBEM moving right along on 1989: Dawn of Freedom, Pax Porfiriana, Fire in the Lake, Cuba Libre, and A Distant Plain...

I also read a fascinating book - Edward Baptist’s The Half Has Never Been Told: Slavery and the Making of American Capitalism, a study of slavery in the United States from 1790 to 1860 (focusing on the expansion of cotton slavery and the booming inter-state slave trade that fed bodies into that sector). It is an outstanding and thought-provoking work.

No happy slaves here, definitely not part of the family (unless you believe people would normally torture, rape, and sell off members of the family). Baptist uses “enslavers” instead of "masters", and “slave labor camps” rather than "plantations". Baptist includes some graphic descriptions of the violence, rape, and torture that characterized slavery in the United States. He also makes an important observation – slavery for the production of cotton - the world’s most valuable commodity in the 19th century - was NOT economically inefficient. Brutal, but not inefficient. And therefore, unlikely to have "withered away" in the near or medium term had the Civil War not been fought.

Recommended.

Surprised?

I joined BGG in 2007 and immediately began to record plays. WIF is the only one without a zero.

Warriors of God does well though - I bought it when it came out in 2008, and the only zero was 2013.

Oh and Small World - got it in 2009, and like Warriors of God, its only zero was 2013.

WORLD IN FLAMES

Times played in 2014: 27*

Sage Comments: I kind of like this game. Not for everybody.

*Almost certainly an under-count. Also, for WIF I count sessions, not full games. Nobody could play 27 full games of WIF in a year and live to tell the tale.
