This list is intended to be a repository of geeklists holding special interest for wargamers. Please add links to your wargame geeklists here, and add a few words of explanation to summarize their content.

Comments are welcome, but please don't add any items to the list that are not geeklists, and don't add geeklists simply because they contain a wargame or two. All new entries should specifically target some aspect of wargaming.

Subscribing to this list will result in notifications each time a new wargaming geeklist is added. Assuming we get good participation, there will be an initial flurry while older lists are added, but once that's done, it should prove useful to get a ping each time a new wargaming geeklist is added.

[edit] As the list is now well into the 7th page, I've taken the suggestion to sort alphabetically. That should make it easier to avoid duplicate entries. It was also suggested that people click 'Titles Only' when looking for a specific entry, and I find that very helpful.

[edit] If you're not finding your entry on its usual page, that may be because the bug that prevented 'sort by title' from working has just been fixed, and the list is now displayed in alphabetical order. If you're looking for something in particular, I repeat my recommendation that you use Titles Only (which you can find directly below this text) when searching.

A list I started in 2005 and I need to update soon.
This is a list of American Cival War game series.
The thought was to help people find a series of games they could enjoy on the ACW, cutting down on learning time as the basic rules are generally the same game to game.
There were and are more series than you would expect.

Let me plug this list here as a metalist for convenience. The point is, a while ago I was researching lists and discovered some OUTSTANDING geeklists on wargaming. Each is in my metalist, and are also copied below for your convenience.

The first two lists are from

Great read both as history and as a design diary for the game Red Winter.

Packed with a ton of maps, photos and historical analysis.

Both the game and these geeklists are obviously a labour of love by

For some reason Parts 2 and 3 received less attention than Part 1, though they're just as well-written.
