Need help with deciding on which war/strategy game i want to get next. I do like fantasy/sci-fi types. The world history, non-fiction types don't interest me like twilight struggle or any of the Risk games. The game has to be light to medium in weight for difficulty, fun and engaging.

I do have some games already in mind, seen some reviews and videos and leaning towards Cry Havoc. Let me know what you guys think or have any other good suggestions.

Battlelore
Runwars
Cry Havoc

If you don't already own any of these, consider...

The Battle of Five Armies
War of the Ring (Second Edition)
Star Wars: Rebellion

I own them all and they are all quite entertaining.

BattleLore is wonderful.

For an intriguing different angle look at Neuroshima Hex!.

I really like Cthulhu Wars. The second print run should be coming out early in 2017. It's expensive, but a really neat game. Complexity comes from the asymmetric factions, but the core rules are pretty simple.

Axis & Allies Miniatures could be a possibility.

Of those three, I'd lean towards BattleLore.
