Using BGG's Advanced Search, I filtered for Richard H. Berg as designer, chit-pull activations as a mechanic, and wargames as the domain.

You can, too.

EDIT: Oh, heck, here's the list.

Glory III (2007)
Chariots of Fire (2010)
The Three Days of Gettysburg (third edition) (2004)
Dead of Winter (second edition) (2009)
The Battles of Waterloo (1994)
Gringo! (2004)
Red Badge of Courage (2001)
The Battle for North Africa (1996)
Glory II: Across the Rappahannock (2002)
Glory (1995)
The Three Days of Gettysburg (second edition) (2000)
River of Death: Battle of Chickamauga, September 19-20, 1863 (1999)
Twin Peaks (2014)
June 6 (1999)
Chickamauga (1986)
A Famous Victory (1995)
Battles with the Gringos, Mexico 1846-62 (2008)
Fields of Glory: Oudenarde & Malplaquet (1996)
The Guns of Cedar Creek (1989)
Battle of Churubusco (2005)

They are not "his" chit-pull... - this mechanic was invented by the great Eric Lee Smith (1st in Panzer Command and a nice simplified version in Across 5 Aprils) - suggest you check out some of HIS games if you like it...

Thanks! Have most of these. Don't see Risorgimento 1859. The two set during the War of Spanish Succession don't seem very well supported unfortunetly.

The utility of the search, like the rest of the site, is dependant on the proper info being put in. If Risorgimento uses chit-pull, it can be added to its mechanics listing from the game page.

Men of Iron and other games in that series are pretty similar to Glory.

Men of Iron is not a chit pull activation system by the way...

Men of Iron and Glory have similar combat and morale mechanisms. In each game, only one command is active at a time (Glory by chit pull, MOI has players alternate activations with the possibility of an opponent going twice in a row if they "steal" an activiation).

Overall, I felt that I was playing very similar games.

I also felt that Simple GBoH played like Glory and MOI.

No, he just can't get over his Berg fetish.

Just want to make sure the right credit was given to the right person. There was the potential for confusion the way it was phrased. Berg doesn't need external praise, he "Trumps" himself up enough on FB... He even tried to take credit for Dunnigan's great Panzergruppe Guderian.

No, there was no chance of confusion. I would recommend staying on the topic at hand: Recommendations for games designed by Richard Berg. Commentary beyond that is unnecessary.

If you like the Glory series, I'd recommend checking out Stonewall's Sword: The Battle of Cedar Mountain and Thunder in the Ozarks. They're regimental scale games, instead of brigade scale, but they're relatively simple, elegant designs that capture the feel of Civil War battle very well.

VPG's Sign of the Pagan is chit-pull, too. It was going out of print, I'm not sure if it's in stock.

I happen to have a copy for sale, though.

Unless I already got rid of it. I should really check on these things before posting.

Agreed! Across 5 Aprils was my first experience with the chit pull. I had a colleague who, whenever the chit pulls weren't coming out like he wanted, called such games, "chit-picking" games with an East L.A. (Cheech & Chong) accent. Not sure I know what he meant--chuckle.
