It's been about two weeks since Consim Expo 2018 wrapped. A fun time was had and I am counting down the months/weeks/days to Consim Expo 2019.

In the meantime, here is a list of games I played at 2018

This was the first game I played. I underestimated the effect of the nuke rules and the willingness of the other players to use nukes. I was playing the Nato forces in Western Europe and I lost several stacks of units before the game finally ended due to global warming/nuclear winter. If I realized the effects the nukes would have in game terms, I would have spread my units out more. I enjoyed the game and look forward to playing it again knowing what the Nuke rules hold for the players.

Had an early copy of this game and we played it for a few turns. We may have misread the rules, but we concluded it was more efficient to try to subvert every enemy force we could as opposed to moving units and conducting campaigns. The MP cost to subvert enemy units/cities in the rules is 1 MP per die roll but the map says it is 2 MP per die roll. I think the 2 MP would make more sense as it would encourage doing more actions than just rolling dice trying to subvert the enemy cities/forces.

Played this four player game. I can see why it is highly rated. I considered buying a copy, but to be honest I was unsure if I could round up 4 players to play the game on a regular basis. This will definitely be a convention game.

Game about the Roman Civil War 235-284 AD. Good game. There are multiple paths to victory and the four players who played the game tried several of them. The path I chose was the winning path, however one of the other players had figured it out a couple of turns before I did and he was the one who won with it.

Played this game twice, after the main game of the day had been concluded. Each time I am pleased to say the plot against Hitler was successful.

Played this game. Exciting game that came down to a last turn amphibious assault by three US Marine Divisions.
