[The original list met with some success, and I thought it would be interesting to repeat the experience in 2013.]

I know, I know, we all have a stack this high.
But what are the few wargames that you really want to play in the coming year?

and I are re-reading the rules, and we're just trying to find a date that would suit the both of us.
(But man, those riverine rules are dense.)

Another one that was on my list for last year.
Unfortunately, I don't see this in my near future. But the year is still young!

I managed to get my hands on a copy of this last years.
I just hope I also manage to get my hands on an opponent before 2013 goes out the window.

I know, it seems less and less likely that this game will be reprinted -- ever. But I've been meaning to give it a shot for a long time now. Maybe I'll get to play someone else's copy somewhere down the road.

i played big brother Andean Abyss just once and i liked it. Cuba Libre seems shorter play time than the big brother and low complex. and it's about one of my favorite historical event and people. Commandante and El Jefe. Hasta La Victoria Siempre!

This would have to be a multi-session game at JR's, and it's a two-mapper to boot. But it... would... be... GLORIOUS.

I would like to surely buy and play this year. CC family is just great. I have CC: E and before buy other expansions i need this one. Generally out of print. a few web shops selling it but it's a big game and shipping cost to Turkey is horrible! I'm waiting for a friend to go and come back to America.

Got this last month and all I've read about it says it is one of the best 2 player games, period. Not sure when we will get it to the table, but 2013 for sure.

One more I would like to add, I have this for a year and still haven't played it yet. I really would like to see more American Revolutionary War games (played all the GMT ones, and Columbia Games Liberty).

Not released yet, but I've got my eye on this one. I already enjoy the Hold the Line system, but with an ACW setting, this should be pretty sweet (and simple!).
A campaign game in three hours? Can't say no to that.
