There are some games I play with old tattered copies, that I enjoy quite a bit. You can pick at different problems such as balance or realism, but they still provide me with hours of good gaming.

Don't tell me about Winning Moves remake of Priceless. That game had more bugs than an outhouse in July. The original game was excellent.

There are still websites and legions of fans for this game. In my opinion the best proprietary abstract game of all time.

Yes, more detailed an more realistic air combat games are available. This was a very playable and enjoyable contest.

A cheap paper map and all sealed in a plastic bag. Avalon Hill remade the game. They renamed and completely ruined it. I haven't played another fantasy wargame like this.

Simple fantasy game that would spread off the table and on to the floor.

I know, it was long and unbalanced. I still loved the simplicity and cutthroat diplomacy.

Game Line: The Fantasy Trip
(Which combines Melee and Wizard in one book and box...)

This is the best of the tactical character scale war games of the early 1980's, IMO. It's not a bad Roleplaying game, either.

It includes the rules of both Melee and Wizard, plus some of the talent rules from In The Labyrinth. It's "Just enough TFT" to run all of the solos, and any of the group-play modules, plus a tactical battle game, and fairly realistic.
