I think it's just about close enough to the end of the year to start this list! The title says it all ... what are you most played miniatures games of 2012?

To keep it short and sweet (and simple), I suggest listing your top three games only.

This might give me some new ideas for games in 2013!

In the past year and a bit, this has been a breath of fresh air for Dark Ages skirmishing. Pretty popular with all who I've played against.

Well, it's my own game so little wonder I've been playing it a lot. More Dark Ages gaming.

I don't seem to tire of refighting tank battles in the desert using these rules. I play in 1/300 but aspire to a collection in a larger scale...

This. I've been painting up some warbands for it. A highly enjoyable, simple and easy to get into skirmish game.

Or possibly Basic Impetus... well, actually some sort of weird mutant offspring of the two. I like the faster play & shorter play time of basic (along with the smaller, cheaper, easier prepared armies), but I like a lot of the extra rules in the full game. So I'm making modifications to basic with rules from the full game. I've also played games with one or other set of rules as published.

Although I haven't played a lot of this in terms of complete games, I have done a lot of 'trial runs' and individual fights, and spent a lot of time earlier this year preparing miniatures (if you can call the Brachiosaurus a 'miniature' at over 6" tall...) and terrain. So maybe not 'most played', but certainly one of my 'most time on table'...

1:600 scale battle of Britain mostly. The simple rules & low bookkeeping requirements still allow enough detail to individualise aircraft types, while allowing quite a sizeable combat to be controlled.

Twit, I have only played Flames of war twice this year (I looked at total played). I have played War at sea more. As I said some unpublished games (our SELWG WW2 zombie game) have been played as much.

My most played minis game (and most played game of any kind outside of pen-and-paper RPGs) during the year is, according to the BGG stats, is DBA. I've mostly been playing successive test versions of the new edition that's in the works. Also played a tournament using the old/current edition at LinCon this spring, which I won with my Medieval Germans.

The runner up is DBA's bigger younger brother, DBMM, which has also been the primary target of my painting efforts over the year.

Well on the non-collectible side I'd have to go with this one. A bit pricey to get into but worth it on the fun factor scale. With the new expansions it's getting better with each release.

On the collectible side I'd got with this one. Chalk it up to my "cult of the new" for the year but as simple air combat games go, this one is tops.

I was a bit of an evangelist for this game this year. Every play was against a different person as I tried to spread my live for this game. I am still looking for a regular opponent.

I admit that I haven't played much in the way of miniatures this year, in spite of buying way too many pre-painted ancient miniatures on eBay. I have played in a couple of C&C Ancient games played with minis however. I have some ambition to playing BattleLore with minis.

Well, Heroscape continues to be my number one.

However, even though this one has only been out a few months, it has seen a lot of play. And this weekend is the FFG Kessel Run e net - Wave 2 is being previewed. This will add the Falcon, Slave I, A-Wing and the Tie Interceptor...

Probably 70% of my miniatures gaming this year has been Flames of War. The updated version 3 of the rules has cleaned up a lot of the bits that really bugged me but along the way there are a couple of new things that are starting to annoy. Still a great miniatures game and when played on good terrain it is a visual feast.

Probably 25% of my gaming has been FoG:Ancients. It is still a good game and I like to play every so often to keep my hand in.

Other than FoW and FoG:AM I have dabbled in and rejected Impetus and dabbled in and decided to play more FoG:Renaissance

On the cards for exploration in 2013 are Bolt Action and Dystopian Wars
