What wargame or wargames have you just obtained? Please post your wargames that are newly in-hand.

That is...

HOLD OFF UNTIL THEY ARE PHYSICALLY IN YOUR POSSESSION.


We know that money is burning a hole in your pockets...it's hotter than the summer heat!

But well worth it (Napoleon's Triumph at least; I don't own Conflict of Heroes Pacific).

I've been on a narrative game kick recently. To my knowledge, there is only one wargame that really uses narrative passages, so I added:



to my collection. Working through the rules now.

Worth every penny, truly. If my game collection burned to ashes NT would be one of the first I'd replace even at the current rate and I'd sleep well at night.

But yeah, I told my wife that if I die not to sell anything until a trusted gaming buddy came by.

I told mine to chuck it. I'm not going to need it and she isn't going to want the hassle of selling it.

At least give it to friends instead of chucking it!

I've had my eye on this for a long time and after having recently read Arrian I decided to pull the trigger on an affordable, unpunched copy. Some unusual mechanisms (particularly naval combat), no community activity here or at Consimworld and no recent showing from the designer means I'll be flying by the seat of my pants.....but it looks really interesting. I've set up the naval learning scenario and am ready to start pushing some counters around.

If I ever make a will, it will specifically state who gets the wargames.

The above sentence is a blatant attempt to get my wargame friends to try to bribe me with beer and cookies for the foreseeable future.

Just got this yesterday (FINALLY) and set up the first scenario. This is quite the package, with gorgeous maps and overlays (and yes the hex sides are hard to see in the jungle terrain).

02Aug2016: Exciting month so far!!!! Lot's of "OLD SCHOOL" goodness...

U-Boat Leader (New)
Old School Tactical (New)
1989: Dawn of Freedom (New)
Up Front (Punched VG)
MechWar 2 (Unpunched)
Tac Air (Unpunched)



*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Update - 18Aug2016: My FAB: Golan '73 pre-order finally arrived and I also found a new copy of Pursuit of Glory on the Geek Market for a lot less than most eBay listings were going for. Finally found a clean "Like New" copy of Andean Abyss to round out my COIN games (in the process of learning those). Gato Leader was recently released so that's in house now and finally, I picked up a couple of old SPI titles that were going for reasonably cheap prices on eBay. Fulda Gap is in almost "New" condition other than being punched. I haven't seen a SPI flat tray game this pristine since the 80s! Kasserine is a game I've had my eye on for awhile and when a saw a Geek Market copy going for $30.00, I snagged it.

FAB: Golan '73 (New)
Seelöwe (Very Good}
Pursuit of Glory (New)
Andean Abyss (Like New)
Fulda Gap {Very Good)
Gato Leader (New)
Kasserine (Like New)

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Update - 27Aug2016: Picked up 1 more to round out a pretty good month for aquisitions.

Richard III: The Wars of the Roses

My copy just arrived from California this afternoon.

Typical High Quality game with top notch components from GMT.

I love the P500 system. You save a ton of cash & you help to get these games published or reprinted as is the case with this classic gem.

Getting to this one ASAP!
