This hasn't gotten nearly as much table time as it deserves. I want to get at least 2 games of this in.

EDIT: I did manage to get one Vassal game in, but that was it. I've put it on the marketplace. Just not enough interest.

It's been sitting around too long. Definitely need to get a couple of games of this in.

EDIT: The good news is that I've gotten a few FTF plays in already, and one nearly complete game via Vassal. So far it's been enjoyable, but I think the siege rules need a minor tweak. So far Sparta has not yet won a game.

I really want to get at least 1 game of this in this year.

EDIT: Sold it. Maybe I'll try to play this at BGG.CON next year.

My favorite Ameritrash game.

EDIT: Got one game in at BGG.CON but that was it. Just not a lot of love for this for some reason.

It's gone too long unplayed.

EDIT: I've tried getting it to the table but to no avail. Now on the marketplace.

After reading the rules, I'm definitely looking forward to this one.

UPDATE: I managed to get it to the table against Pete. It has some neat ideas, but overall it felt a bit underdeveloped. I posted some variants that we plan to use if we play again.

After the success of Republic of Rome I'm hoping this will have some appeal to the gaming group.

EDIT: Didn't make it to the table. Maybe next year.

A good, simple and short game on the Spanish Civil War.

EDIT: Didn't make it to the table this year but I think we'll get it to the table next year.

Recently acquired. Must play.

EDIT: After playing Storm over Stalingrad a couple of times instead, this just felt like it would be a bigger, longer version. It may have been more interesting, but I decided that Breakout: Normandy already scratches my WWII area-impulse itch.

It's been a while. I think we're due.

EDIT: Didn't make it to the table this year. I'm giving it one more year before it hits the marketplace.

I'd rather play this than Here I Stand again at this point.

EDIT: I did manage to get some F2F games in, and now I'm doing the PBEM thing. However, I decided to sell my copy because I know other people that own it, and I mostly play PBEM anyway.

I'm not sure which group I'll be able to get to play this, but I'm going to try.

EDIT: Well, I managed to con a group of gamers into playing. It did not go well. The random events were WAY too brutal and effectively ended the game for one player early on. Overall people felt that, although it had some interesting concepts, it was too clumsy and random in practice.
