I know a lot of you grogs don't peruse the Geeklists, so let this be your one-stop shopping for this month.

If you create (or know of) a wargame-centric Geeklist or one that has a lot of wargames, go ahead and add it here.

If it is worth adding to Sphere's all-time collection, here is the link to do so:

https://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/140571/wargamers-guide-wa...

I know not all of the ones here are worth being there (ex: games I played in 2014, Games I'm playing at WBC, etc, My Wargame 10 x 10, etc), so that is why I thought there as a need to create a separate list.

Also, you may want to subscribe to this thread, just because you may miss stuff after the first few days if you don't.

Why not open it up to recurring non-Geeklists, also?

Ongoing directories of interest:

Generosity Chains:
*BGG Wargame Chain of Generosity (USA)
*BGG Wargame Chain of Generosity (Europe)
*Wargamers Paying it Forward

Help the BGG Database of Wargames:
Check out this Geeklist and look through the list of war games that do not have a review. If you are willing and able, pick one out and get it on the table if need be, or write a review for it

Help a traveling wargamer find wargame stores:
Know a good store that sells wargames? Add it to the War Games FLGS Directory, so when others are there, they can support the store.

Feel free to add yours even if they were listed a few weeks ago -- since this is a new idea and so many Geeklists make it easy to miss.

Shameless self promotion to follow:

Wargames I Must Learn To Play And The Order In Which to Learn Them
As I purchase new games to keep myself focused on learning them I add them to this list so when I have one of those ADD moments all wargamers have when they are looking at their piles of unplayed wargames....I know which ones to choose.

Zigihogan's Games To Focus On Exclusively 2015
Since my 10x10 list last year was an experiment in fail I decided to do it a bit differently this year. After posting to the master list of these I went through a few and have no clue how these people can't get their games played. There was more sub one hour games on their list than I can imagine! I could kick out some of those lists in a weekend (and not a particularly long one!). They should try out being a wargamers someday.

Old Micro Games I MUST Have
I have a thing for micro-games (right, Judd?) and I only post this here if someone has one on this list I don't have yet and wants to get rid of (the list is getting very short nowadays).

My list isn't an all-time collection, nor is there any criterion for selection save that the list be one of interest to wargamers. It was suggested that I should screen entries, and I rejected that notion (see the comments at the bottom of the list). If anyone has a wargame-related geeklist, they're more than welcome to add it.

Just in case wargamers didn't know: At a wargamer's request (avoiding my own shameless self promotion??) the 10x10 Powers That Be have ruled that two hours of gaming can be counted as a "Play." Consequently spending 10 hours at a Monster game table equals FIVE PLAYS for the 10x10 list.
