This is a list of games that I am thinking of buying this year. Some of these are carry overs from my previous lists, but there are some new additions. I meant to post this earlier, but waited until after consim expo to see what new goodies were there.

A CDG covering the Pacific War. I'm enjoying the CDGs I have and the Pacific War has always been an interest of mine.

I'm thinking of getting a game on the 1940 campaign. I'm also thinking about getting into the OCS series. This game checks both boxes.

A monster game of the American Civil War. I've heard mixed reviews, but if I can find a copy for a reasonable amount, I might give it a try and kitbash the rules a little bit.

I'm a fan of the Gamers Civil War Brigade series rules. I saw this game at Consim expo flea market tables and was thinking about buying it. However, I had it bought out from under me. Now I'm thinking I should had snapped it up while I could.

Thought about buying this while I was at Consim Expo in Tempe. However, I was flying back and worried about having enough space in my luggage.
