I'm a difficult person to shop for. While my interests are not completely random, they aren't static either and do shift from time to time. Added to that, there is no FLGS in my town so everything has to be done online. This leads to immense amounts of time spent researching games on the Geek (oh the horror) and Web-Grognards. Worse yet, much of what I want is that persnickety OOP stuff. So, for Santa, my wife, or anyone else taking the time to read this, here is what I hope to see under the tree. Come on Santa, I know you have a copy of Spartan in that bag somewhere.

I know this is under the tree for me because I bought it 6 months ago. I have to space my game buying into a rather tight budget. This can sometimes lead to my wife saying that I can have X game but that it has to be held for a birthday or Christmas present. I started to get into the ACW at the beginning of the summer and bought Gleam of Bayonets and this one. So after Christmas, I will have all of the GMT GBACW games.

I know that my wife got me this as well. However it's tied up in an order waiting to be completed at Thoughthammer. Blast you Thurn & Taxis. You alone are preventing me from Paratrooper goodness on Christmas Morn. There will be no air assault on the manger for me.

Ditto Combat Commander. I think I understand most of the rules to Deluxe Alexander. I am curious what the Simble GBoH system is like. I wouldn't even be looking at this if I didn't have Alexander & Tyrant, SPQR, Conquest of Gaul and Caratacus and Caesar the Civil Wars with all 3 of it's modules. But with that much sword and sandle goodness, why not?

Most of my gaming is solo play. I didn't even know about this game until it was too late and I haven't been able to work out a trade to save the life of me! This game just looks.....wow. Please Santa, can't you get one of the Elves to run me off a copy? Please? I've been good mostly.

I like ancients. The one itch I've got that I just can't scratch is the old school pre-Alexander Hoplite itch. From careful research and polling on the wargame forum, this game looks like it would take care of it. I'm just 32 years to late! Why must most of my interests be OOP? Cruel fates. Or is this just Santa Karma for the time I spend looking at BGG at work, therefore being alledgedly "bad"?

I also like pre-Napoleonic combat. I have the original PG. I'd like to add four more lace filled, German speaking, all comers whooping Freddy the Great battles. (We go way back, he lets me call him Freddy when the dice are hot).

And last but not least is a different PG. Panzer Grenadier will be my game collection coming full circle. I started wargaming at around the age of 9 with my dad thrashing me at PanzerBlitz. I see PG: East Front as a great update/replacement for the venerable PanzerBlitz. Same front, close enough to the same scale but sooooo much better. Come on Santa, even those nasty Panzer Grenadiers deserve some Christmas love on the cold Eastern Front.
