ScottH recently confessed that he has no interest in seeing new games. I immediately thumbed his entry. I have been feeling the same way lately. I have plenty of games, some of which I have never played. While I will happily try something new, what I really want to do is to dig deep into the games I already have. In light of that, I'd really like to play Guns of Gettysburg again this month. I know...that's the same thing I played in August! I don't care. I'm starting to "get it" and I want to keep playing before I lose it.

...and yes, I know, I see the irony here. GoG is essentially a new game. But it demonstrates my point perfectly. I don't want to hop from game to game to game anymore. I want to dig into a small number of really interesting games.

Here's another that stands in for all of Mark Simonitch's similar games. I really enjoyed playing Normany '44 at SNEWfest and would love to continue to explore it or it's relations. Mike had mentioned wanting to play this one, and it's one that I have played a couple of times, but would like to play a lot more.

6. Board Game: Baptism at Bull Run [Average Rating:7.91 Unranked]

A game that is derived from Bonaparte at Marengo only at The Battle of First Bull Run. Rules are here online and it really is very similar to BaM with just a few twists to bring it in line with the American Civil War era tactics.
I now have a beautiful 3' x 4' map printed on a waterproof canvas. It looks very nice. All we need is to borrow the blocks from BaM or NT.

Any interest? It is much shorter than a Napoleon's Triumph or The Guns of Gettysburg game.
