This is an incomplete list of games I want to play during next year. Some of them I have played a lot, others will be totally new for me. The scope will be as broad as possible from ancient to contemporary with no particular order.

I am fully aware that there are better games for reenacting these wars or periods but the list has been done with the games that are in my collection. Any comments are welcomed

The first entries will cover from Ancient times to the start of WWI. I will add new entries later on.

But using Simple GBoH. Yet to decide which battle to play; Magnesia, Illipa or Sentinum. I will leave Zama or Cannae for later, once I got used to the system

Not a perfect simulation but the idea is interesting. Europeans arrive somewhere and they have no idea of opposing forces, area wealth or whether the colonies will be successful or not

Three campaigns, Hohenlinden 1800, Austerlitz 1805 and Wagram 1809.
Moreau, one of the best Republican soldiers defeated the Austrians in December 1800. Twice more Napoleon opposed the Austrian army in the better known campaigns of 1805 and 1809

This is one of these games that for sure will be on my table after so many years of resting in the shelves, more than 10 years since I played it last time.
I have to find the moment, the time, the room...

A must in this list. Playing solitaire one can forget the possibility of a full German attack into Italy and wait for American reinforcements to push into Germany (21/10/2017)

Played during Easter 2018.
