With more and more games returning to game shelves courtesy of revised editions (Hannibal: Rome vs. Carthage, Blackbeard and Talisman (Revised 4th Edition) are all recent examples), it seems that more and more companies and game players are looking back at old favorites to come back to the table.

So, I ask...what game or games, that are NOT ALREADY being planned to be reprinted, would you like to see come back in new editions?

This game is a personal favorite of mine. I own both a Metagaming edition (in title image) and an Avalon Hill copy (pictured below) of this great space empire building game. No offense to Twilight Imperium (Third Edition), but I like the older style and pace of this game.


Old-school computer gamers would recognize this game as Armada 2525, the board game.

A new edition would be really cool, with all of the bells and whistles. Nice cards, a mix of plastic figures and counters for the fleets...there's promise in this one.

A "Euro" treatment of this wargame (and sister-game G.E.V., image below) would also be pretty cool.


I'm not talking about the Ogre Miniatures game. But rather, small, 1" plastic vehicle miniatures (maybe a 2" or 3" ogre) on a 22" x 34" map.

I liked the idea of the miniatures game. But I'd much rather get a 3-dimensional copy of Ogre where everything is purchased at once.

With respect to They Shall Not Pass: The Battle of Verdun 1916 (image below), I'd like to see a revamping of this John Hill classic.


New map graphics would be a MUST. I liked the generic approach of the original design, but if someone wanted to put in the time to make variable strength units based on historical performances, I wouldn't have too much of a problem with it.

...and Patrol. We need some good man-to-man games in the flavor of the old SPI titles. No minis/plastic people please. Lots and lots of geomorphic maps, all weapons classes and terrain types. Nice multicolored counters.

I like the idea of a huge sandbox with infinite re-playability.

Despite my occasional grumbles about rules QA with this game, and the fact that this suggestion works against my fiscal interests (since I own the now-OOP edition), I'd be very happy to see Hasbro or another publisher put out a second edition of this game, incorporating errata to date. It needs to find a wider audience, and the successes of Arkham Horror and Last Night on Earth demonstrate that there is a market for "horror-themed" board games with lots of chrome--one that hasn't come close to being saturated yet. Hint, hint.

I think that Circus Maximus would be an excellent candidate for an update.

I would definitely like to see an new release of Blue Max. The success of the Wings of War series and the YouPlayIt website show there is definitely an audience for the game.
