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.


Hope your purchases don't include any turkeys.

for doing all the heavy lifting.


After going through the box, I discovered a copy of S&T's Korea: The Mobile War hanging out.

So.. 2 games arrived. One expected. One surprise. Thank you!

Finally picked up the last of the big box sets for this game system. I also have some individual models coming to round out the forces on both sides (German and Russian). Additional plans include adding more British models at a later date, to expand the forces from the Blitzkrieg set.

One disappointing thing about this game system that I found out only belatedly, is that Zvezda decided not to include the game unit card with the individual models they sell, starting in 2014, I think. They do provide P-n-P cards, but it's just not the same. I was a sad Panda after learning that. cry

Of course, I am Johnny-Come-Lately in this case, I should have found this game system about five years ago. Oh well, se la vie!

It's an expansion, and not a proper game, but I just had to get this:



My wife and I have fallen hard for Federation and Empire and I couldn't resist adding an entire major power.

Not sure when we'll actually get around to playing it, though.

Just got it in the mail



My daughter immediately popped all the bubble wrap and I got a bookmark which I am excited about. Although I don't know what kind of rule book needs a bookmark?

I just got these from MMP's sale over the weekend:

Korea: The Forgotten War


I want to try out the OCS system and this I heard is pretty good for beginners

and

VCS Salerno


The system looks interesting and the Italian front is one of my interests.

I technically got them last week, but I was busy and I could not sort and catalog them so I told myself that they arrived today. whistle

I got this one for a really sane price, it was punched but I could say that other than that unplayed.



And these ones in a different package:



And this with a new 3" box to store it with the original game:



Still in the box since I haven't have had time to sort everything:



And a second copy of:



It was really really cheap and I like this game so much, and my original box suffered a "small" accident because my wife almost burned it with wax. laugh

Got these 3:





The command systems of these two have intrigued me for a while so decided to give them a go.



This one I've wanted since it came out but it sold out too fast, finally managed to get a copy of the geek

Got my first new game in a while the other day.



I really enjoyed the original Red Dragon Rising, but lost the map for it. I watched the talk of a two-map sequel adding the Indian Ocean for a few years but obviously stopped before it was announced as Modern War #1.

Thankfully catosulla's recent session report brought it to my attention just in time to grab the last reasonably-priced copy online.

Looking forward to playing it, and it feels pretty cool to have basically the entire air/naval OOB for everyone from Yemen to Japan at your fingertips.

Really intrigued by this one. kind of a pandemic meets twilight struggle. I tend not to like co-op games though so on the fence about buying it

    Worth buying just for the cover art. Really a unique look on that one.
