Well, the topic to start with.

They both use the same game system, so once you learn one you'll be up and running with the other one very fast.
Some more things about the basic system are better explained in the 1914 rules, IMHO. And the layout of the rules is improved.

They both contain leaders which you need to activate in order to move their respective units and both games have an initiative disc that allows players to perform some events. These events have been expanded a lot for 1914. Now there is a lot more incentive to use the disc. But be aware, once you use it, it goes to your opponent.

Dear Daniel,

Oh dearie, dearie, me... The obvious answer is to buy both.

However, after looking at the games that you already own, I would respectfully suggest that you buy Waterloo 200 as it may at some time in the near future go out of print. Then if you enjoy that one, and I think you will, you can go on to purchase 1914: Germany at War.

Whatever you decide, you will not be disappointed.

With warmest regards,


Jim

Est. 1949
