This is meant as a repository of wargame suggestions on a variety of historical conflicts.
I'll start the list with a few requests of my own, and feel free to do the same: essentially, the entry will be the conflict itself, and the comments will contain the wargame suggestions.
(If you specify the conflit dates in your entry, I promise to try and figure out how to rearrange the entries chronologically.)

The best card-driven wargame I have played. I like how the card play to resolve battles excels rolling the dice play, with the maneuver cards, general rating, and bluffing all combine for a tense experience.
