Looking at my games, it appears I have 20 24 Charles S. Roberts Award winners in my collection.

The Charles S. Roberts Awards (or CSR Awards) was an annual award for excellence in the historical wargaming hobby. It was named in honor of Charles S. Roberts the "Father of Wargaming" who founded Avalon Hill. The award was informally called a "Charlie" and officially called a "Charles S. Roberts Award." It was awarded from 1975 to 2012.

My challenge is to play all of them by the end of 2019.

Interesting morale rules. Stats on counter backs make for a bit of a “fiddly” game. Used VASSAL for play.
