I have become increasing interested in these older board games, especially the solitaire ones that I either have a historical or theme interest in. I am listing them here with notes for my own reference.

I just bought this because for some reason this terribly ugly game, along with its description, completely ran away with my imagination.

This was the first of these little wargames that I read up on and thought 'I think I could enjoy that'.

This is up there on priority. It sounds like the perfect solo game to me, some decision with a lot of theme, story and dice rolling.

I had almost bought Ogre a couple of times, though I dislike the new huge addition. This game looks very similar, with maybe a few innovations.

This one looks pretty cool. More of a medieval/fantasy guy but I like the Aliens theme.

Same reason why I was interested in Hunters, though in theory I prefer the Uboat theme and limited decision making of Hunters.

I think this expands Melee so possibly after melee.

I would like to get my hands on this... Maybe is a little too complicated and I will never find anyone to play with. The First Crusades and Italo Norman history is my favorite subject so this will sit well besides my copy of the Gesta Francorum.

This sort of game is getting dangerously close to something a little too complex for me and what I want out of gaming. I love the fog of war idea and the theme.
