Fill in the blank.

For me, it's games that bridge the complexity gap between historical themed games (typically before seen in wargaming circles) and medium weight family board games.

For example, I love what Academy Games, Inc. has done with 1775: Rebellion and Freedom: The Underground Railroad. I'd love to see more games that cover historical topics without being considered complex or long.

There needs to be more games that are suitable for our group and better or different than the ones we already play.
