I have Hannibal coming.
I own Here I Stand.
Got WWII: Barbarossa to Berlin.
My order of Triumph of Chaos is imminent (with player guide).
Do I really need Wilderness War, too?

Al, I'd say "yes." The Schenectady Wargaming Association ( www.swa-gaming.org ) is thinking of having a yearly tournament of Wilderness War for its Council of Five Nations gaming convention the first weekend in Oct. Not sure if it will happen this year, but then the game still needs to go up the P500 charts. I own it, and think it is a cool game to play/look at as the battles were fought over the NE region where we live.

Wilderness War is an excellent game. Of course you should preorder. The only problem, of course, is that it is unlikely to be printed anytime soon, since GMT has so many games in their backlog. More preorders help.

I've only played once, but found it very good, and darned exciting. Course I'm partial to the single deck, WtP style CDGs...

I think so if it's a historical conflict that interests you. It's somewhat lighter than the others you list as well.

Why ask us? You've already made up your mind to buy it. Just do it.

It's a reprint, so it will be published without the 500 orders required for new games - it will be out a lot quicker than you imagine.

This is my favourite CDG. The AM scenario, at 6 turns (2-3 hours) makes it an easy choice when you want a fast, but satisfying, CDG fix. It will get more play than your other CDGs and it works incredibly well on ACTS. Buy it.

My only reservation in recommending it is some wargamers don't like the one deck or the limited strategic options to the game - it's not about hand management and open fronts such as PoG, it's about bluffing and double guessing and hoping for that Highlander card + Wolfe if you're the British.

Damn! I pre-ordered the re-print and the totals seem to be going down and not up.

I knew I shouldn't have written that review.
