Some solo games here, and a contingent of multiplayer played 'both sides'.
Don't think I've yet played a multi-player game that uses a bot, but then my memory isn't what is was.....

Discovered this via Hamtag (one of Judd's picks), and may be my most played solo to date.
Oh, also haven't won yet....

Naval combat.
Air combat.
WW2.
Pacific.
Only thing that'd make this better is being able to play Japan.

Picked off from Mark Johnsons Wargames to Go podcast on the subject, I wondered how a game would handle such a 'peculiar' scenario, but this works great, theres the usual fighting of course, but it's how it handles the retreating and evacuating decision making that makes the game.
Sometimes played as a group game following a watch of Dunkirk (modern or John Mills versions) or the excellent BBC 'drama/documentary'.

Nostalgia here, as this was one of the first 3 Wargames I had, and also one of the first solo's (playing both sides) that I got to work. As the Soviets have obvious attack lines, and Natos options for any decent moves are limited it made paying both sides easier than would otherwise be the case.

Feels less thematic than 'We must tell' and 'Nimitz' on this list, which is surprising as this is the tactical one of the 3 on the subject. But running out of planes and fragile carriers make for a fun game. The rules aren't written well, and I bling'd my version up my making bigger counters with decent plane images on and little carrier 'boards' to put them on.

I've a list of States of Siege games to play, but so far I've played this, Israeli Independence and We must tell the Emperor. We must tell the Emperor is far and away the best, but this is decent.
To be clear I favour the John Wayne version, the remake was ok but never going to match the grandeur of the original.

Simplest of the Sates of Siege, and the least satisfying, none the less I now know a lot more about this particular piece of history.

So wanted to play this game.
So beyond my tolerance (capability?) for complexity.....
