What wargame or wargames have you just obtained?

Summertime's approaching. Fire up the grill and set up the monster wargames!

I'll be getting the following four games over the next two weeks.

Andean Abyss


Arrived today. I had this in my cart on the GMT website during their recent sale but due to a death in the family I never finished the purchase. I was fortunate to make a trade for it though this weekend with a very nice gentleman.

Cuba Libre


Will arrive on Monday. The game is out of print at GMT. It's sister game A Distant Plain is out of print as well and copies are starting to climb on Ebay so I decided to snag Cuba Libre before it started to do the same. This will be the first of the two to hit the table.

Kremlin


The new Jolly Rogers version is shipping as we speak! Plan to have a communist party for our first play.

Thunder Alley


Shipping in the next few weeks. Now some may say this is not a wargame. I must assume they have never seen a NASCAR short track race.

In general I don't buy sports games. I actually don't own any. This one however is getting raves from those who played the PNP available and it's Jeff Horger so it's worth picking up.

Just got my order from Noble Knight games;

Where There Is Discord: War in the South Atlantic



and

The Guns of Gettysburg




Decided I better pick them both up before they become hard to come by.

Oh gods. This last week I just added about 30 games.

CSWExpo is so damned dangerous.

Just The Dark Valley. I couldn't resist after all of the session reports that came out after its release.

I blame this one on Calandale. Nice job with the vids.



Just got this today from my FLGS. Time to see if I can get my son to try this one.

Smart move. I did the same with ADP last month. Love the COIN series and so far Cuba Libre is my favorite (play time and map size). Can't wait for Fire in the Lake, hopefully it will be on next month's list. Volko AND Mark Herman!

My most anticipated reprint in quite a while. Chilling the vodka now.

Buy Hearts and Minds: Vietnam 1965-1975! I've been considering it for the past couple of months and it sounds awesome. The only thing stopping me is that my opponents already have copies of the game so I don't "need" it.

I'll probably pick it up this month anyways

Reluctant Enemies, which I was pleased to hear from one of the UK's biggest distributors has been selling very well!

More recruits to the OCS brotherhood

Continuing my Northern Europe obsession, picked up:



My bride is having mixed emotions; she's proud of the Norwegian aspect, not so pleased on the financial expenditure.

It's an investment. You are not playing frivolous games. You are LEARNING history so you're not DOOMED to repeat it. You are only purchasing these games out of your deep love for her, and your desire to keep her safe from the vagaries of possible world warfare.

Just snatched this one, in shrink, off Ebay for a pretty nice price. Really looking forward to restarting my GBACW career after a looooooong hiatus.



What I *really* want to get hold of is a copy of Red Badge of Courage, and Three Days of Gettysburg, but those are pricey propositions. Must... bide... time...

YES! This! I knew you'd understand! I'll let you know how this rationale plays out. If you don't hear back from me, you can have my game collection.

In that case, your wife needs to take immediate corrective action.

I didn't ask. Having spent nearly £200 on games over the weekend and only just talking myself out of getting 1944: Race to the Rhine, I don't think I wanted to know the answer to that question

Atlantic Wall: D-Day to Falaise, I'm looking forward to it. I have to say I like this grand-tactical scale system. With the game is released in June, VASSAL module is expected as well.

I currently have Hurtgen: Hell's Forest and Wacht Am Rhein 2012 version.

I also bought recently Reluctant Enemies. I'm currently learning OCS system using the Starter Guide as a learning tool

One I've been wanting to get for a while, as it's one of those classics that belongs on every wargamer's "to play" list - unpunched on eBay for $40...
