My daughter (and newbie wargamer) expressed an interest in this topic so I purchased it. Nice game. Not complex . Played the Fredericksburg scenario.

I'm slowing down tremendously, now that I've collected most
of my 'want list' of older games.

Very happy with this one. Played it a couple times (intro scenario -
first crusade - only). Looking forward to playing the rest of the
crusades out.

Grabbed a handful of old GDW series 200 games.

This is the only one I've tried out of this new batch.
Interesting game - manages to cleverly handle a lot detail
with very few rules and actions. Still, it's not terribly
much fun to play.

Picked this (and Med) up recently. Really looking forward
to getting some more playing in on them. Tried the pacific
version a year or so ago, and enjoyed. Think it will go
well as a game with the wife. She's got her sights on
Accursed Civil War though - so probably not this weekend.

Picked this up a week ago, my first monster. Reading through the rules now and taking it all in. Also bought the AH General issues 19-1 and 19-2, there is a two part overview by Jim Burnett that contains good information. Hoping to begin the Mortain scenario this weekend.

I got this shipped from Germany in August, took forever but worth it. This is a lot of fun and my whole family enjoys it. The components are outstanding and it's easy to learn and play.

Bloody April, 1917: Air War Over Arras, France and Andean Abyss. Very excited about both of these. I've been looking for a step-up-from-plastic-men-multi-player game that I could get a few of my ameritrash buddies into. I have a feeling that Andean Abyss is going to be a hit with us.

At the same time, I enjoy reading heavy-ish rulebooks almost as much as I enjoy playing sometimes. Bloody April has a ton of stuff to read and a ton and a half of counters to clip. Awesome.

Just arrived in the post this morning, one very used second hand copy of Dark Emperor. Funny enough, only the rulebook looks especially worn, the maps look like they were never opened... Need to do a full counter inventory though.
