Hey guys and gals , I am in need of help on this one.
One of my best friends is an old school war gamer and I have finally convinced him to try some of the newer board games , but here is the catch.

I need some suggestions for a euro style game that has medium or heavy amounts of direct combat in it ( otherwise he wont be interested )

any info would help tremendously.

Thanks for reading

Conquest of Planet Earth: The Space Alien Game is a combat oriented area control game with dice rolling. It is also very take that style conflict against players with battles taking place against the game and players if desired.

Small World might be a good one if he is OK with the fantasy theme. A new game I've been impressed with is 1775: Rebellion which is a wargame, but with the elegance and fast play of a euro.

1775: Rebellion or 1812: The Invasion of Canada may do the trick.
