This geeklist provides an umbrella for a suite of more tightly-categorized WWI lists that I did a while back.

Not too many games manage representations of the whole war very well. DG's recent "Storm of Steel" is a good effort at the monster scale whilst Peter Schutze's "Death in the Trenches" does a fine job with a much-reduced counter inventory.

My first wargame. Lots of attention to those first frantic months of the war.

The much more mobile war in the east.

Games on the battles of Verdun and The Somme predominate here with a fair handful of notable efforts elsewhere. Cambrai fits the dates and was a precursor to the combined-arms and armor-supported approaches that led to the "endings" of 1918.

Quite a few options for the 1918 battles - around the world.

DTP publishers seem to predominate here with many games for the war in Africa and the Mid-East. S&T has done a few. GMT is soon to expand Paths of Glory to the Mideast as well.

The biggest sublist of this suite... everyone likes those biplanes!

Throw in a few Zeppelins and you've got a busy gaming mix for an element of the war the import of which is debatable.

Ah Jutland - my second wargame and the closest I ever came to "minis" with its lack of a gameboard (I remember looking through the box for one!).

Once again - an element of the war which had questionable impact (at least at the level gamed - the British blockade and German U-Boats had a big impact but are hardly gamed at all).

Even spawned an entire game series from Avalanche Press.

Gamed at the smallest level; where counters sometimes represent individual units and counter movement options include things like "jump" or "run". The WWII tactical Panzer Grenadier folks are promising a WWI game in 2008.
