With so many games designed around aspects of WWI, I thought a few more-focused lists might be handy. I've added games that I own or have owned or have played.

My hope is to have additions made by folks with some similar knowledge of the game and something to say about it.

Lists in this set include:
WWI - Gaming the entire war: http://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist.php3?action=view&listid=13...
WWI - 1914 in the West: http://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist.php3?action=view&listid=12...
WWI - 1914 in the East: http://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist.php3?action=view&listid=12...
WWI - Deadlock (1915-1917): http://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist.php3?action=view&listid=13...
WWI - Endings - 1918: http://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist.php3?action=view&listid=13...
WWI - the rest of the world: http://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist.php3?action=view&listid=13...
WWI - War in the Air: http://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist.php3?action=view&listid=13...
WWI - War at Sea: http://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist.php3?action=view&listid=13...
WWI - Tactical sims: http://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist.php3?action=view&listid=13...
------------------------------------

From zeppelins and spotters, to fighters and bombers... the threat from on high did much to reinforce awareness of the growing role of technology in war.

An oldie to be sure (1963). Simplistic in many ways but some awfully cool 'bits'.

AH bookcase game I played a lot in the 1970's. Low counter-count. Nice maps.

S&T mag. Sounds fascinating although mixed reviews.


There are SO MANY games for this air war but I don't seem to have caught the bug... all you "Aces High" fans add here *****

Owned but not yet played. Supposedly better than Richtophens War... Came out late in the AH days, when the games were really starting to get good, but didn't benefit from many years of printing...

A blind action game. I just bought a copy and am looking forward to trying it out. I like the idea of having a segmented board as opposed to the way "wings of war" works.

Kind of like a first person shooter video game on paper. Fun game... Good travel game too, since there's really no board or cards or pieces. I won't bother to list all of the expansions....
