Scott H introduced me to this Battle Command series. I've played the entire series on weeknights with a friend who has returned to gaming. Although the game features a simple system, it's fun and playable in a night. The other two games include Market Garden/Crete and the latest one is on El Alamein.

If it's June, then I start thinking Waterloo games!

Dan mentioned he'd like a go at this with me; I remember a few years ago Scott H and I had a great time with a double-blind game of this as we both had copies of this 4th edition. The conventional block version is great as well and is one of my favorite treatments of the 100 Days' Campaign.

Dan, you ready to meet on the muddy fields south of Brussels? Vive L'Empereur!

I'd really like to get this to the table. Who's interested?

I'm back... almost... but I can make June's SNEW. Anybody interested in a one-year scenario of EotS?

In the meantime, greetings from Europe!

This arrived on my doorstep yesterday. I've already finished reading the rules. Looks pretty cool...a deck building empire builder set during the late Roman Empire. My pile of new games that haven't been played yet grows!

Does anyone have a copy of this game? I had a copy for years, and in my madness, I must've given it away. Of course, I'm kicking myself. War at Sea, several versions of it, has been a big favorite of mine. A friend of mine got me interested in VITP. Worthington Games supposedly is going to release its Holdfast versions of War at Sea and Victory in the Pacific. Worthington claims the games are comparable to Avalon Hill predecessors.

If I get it stickered in time I will bring this. Even though I doubt I will get to play.

10. Board Game: Dune [Average Rating:7.62 Overall Rank:215]

Sorry about scrambling things at the last minute as I don't want to mess up either Pericles or High Frontier which both look like they have devoted fans. I guess the easiest solution would be to steal one of the High Frontier players if one is willing to play me in a two-player game. Or I could join High Frontier, but it seems like it has a steep learning curve and five players doesn't sound optimum.
I'll bring an assortment. If anyone's interested in a two-player game, let me know. Or we can try Dune again.
War at Sea/VITP
Midway (yes the ancient AH game!)
Washington's War
Hannibal
For the People
Titan
Storm Over Stalingrad/Normandy/Dien Bien Phu
Twilight Struggle

Let me know! I don't plan on bringing them all.
