"We ought to give thanks for all fortune: if it is good, because it is good, if bad, because it works in us patience, humility and the contempt of this world and the hope of our eternal country." -C.S. Lewis

Was reminded of just how much I enjoy racing games with some recent plays of Race! Formula 90. The passing mechanics are excellent, and every turn is full of tension and decision points. The robot cars mean that two-player racing is just as exciting and tense as a six-player table. While there's certainly luck involved in the card draws, it didn't feel like the determining factor. This game is a close second to Speed Circuit for me, and I think the mechanics would be perfect for a stock car game.

Outside of that, my focus remains wargaming, and a lot of Napoleonic titles are building up on the shelves. GMT's Fading Glory grabbed me right away with low counter density and deeper-than-expected game play. From there, I traded for or purchased a number of other Napoleonic games, including Waterloo 200. Throw in some naval games like Wooden Ships & Iron Men and Flying Colors, and I can get more use out of all those Sails of Glory models.

And it doesn't stop there. ACW has also been a recent topic of interest, thanks to The Civil War Trilogy (Jeff and Michael Shaara). Lots of new games on the period, and I'm slowly working them in alongside the aforementioned Napoleonic titles and old standbys like Combat Commander and X-Wing. At least I have plenty of options.
