The old Avalon Hill produced a string of quality wargames. Now that its walls have turned to dust, and its fields sown with salt, and ... (okay, okay... you get the idea) perhaps it is time to reminisce about all those great games we grew up with.

An absolute gem if you are a wargamer (and not to hung up about frivolous things like hexagons).

Card-driven wargame. Although not the first, it is certainly the best one in Avalon Hill's list of 3(?) games of this series.

This game has a cult following, and has evolved beyond a game to a lifestyle, a religion almost!

This one has a unique system. If I am not mistaken, only one other game (War at Sea) has a similar system. VITP plays much better!

I must admit I was ambivalent about this one when it came out. Read about it in the General, and skeptically gave it a try. Did not have cause to regret the choice.

I liked this one because it captures the flavour of the period. Infantry screening artillery while the cavalry makes a sweep around the flanks to cut off retreat.

Never actually played this monster game. Handled the single copy on the store's shelves lovingly as a kid, but never saved enough to buy it before it got sold.

Great love! An alternate turns air combat game is quite absurd (the enemy plane goes to your tail, shhots and then freezes in the air waiting for you to do the same), but this title made me love WWI air duels simulations.

Far more realistic than "Richthofen's War". This is the game that teached me how to simulate air combat.
