Compiled this list from ATO and S&T (2001 onward) games.

Magazine games are a mixed bunch. Average rating for all ATO & S&T wargames is 6.2 with a weight of 2.6 (so much lighter than the average wargame fare). On average, they have 101 owners and have only 21 ratings, with about 5 wanting the game and trading the game.

Out of 32 ATO games listed, 15 deal with WWII (the usual 50/50 WWII and all other wargame topic split), with a pretty equal distribution of other wargame topics.

In contrast, out of the 52 S&T games listed, only 8 dealt with the WWII topic, 10 modern, 7 WWI, 10 Gunpowder, 5 Medieval and a scattering of a wide range of other topics.

Only 6 WWII titles on this list of Top 25 ranked magazine wargames.

A small spreadsheet containing all the topics is available here:

Only a few ratings so far... 8.00 average. Refinement of the Clash of Arms ACW operational series I believe.

7.58... ATO ..and also only a few ratings. Newest issue #23, which a number of us are waiting to receive in the post cry

ATO excels at covering off the beaten track strategic level conflicts; the very early vote says this may be a good one.

7.54... I believe this one won the Charles S Roberts Award. Big lust factor (22 want, only 7 trading). Saw it played at WBC and it looks very good.

7.23 S&T... The first WWII title shows up. One of the reasons I dig S&T games is that they don't cover WWII that often.

7.05 S&T. The 2nd WWII game to make the list. Haven't played this one. Wonder how it stacks up against the classic Breakout Normandy. The book Cobra II is a great read.
