When it is your turn to send a VASSAL move, the wait is excruciating. When it's my turn, well, I've been busy.

Hi, I'm looking for a suggestion on a game which would cover the campaigns in southern Russia/Ukraine in 1942-43. The game should have at least 9 mapsheets, possibly 9 1/2, and approximately 3,000 counters/markers. It should also include two dice.

Any ideas?

Ooh there are some good suggestions there, especially the game with the little forceps and the guy with the red nose. Looks a lot like von Manstein. Oh, and that Case Blue one looks a bit like what I am looking for, does it work solo? Just in case my wife doesn't like it.

I vividly recall seeing this game on the table in the Company Commander's office when I checked in to my first duty station.

Having grown up playing Battle-Cry, Broadside and Dogfight, I was very curious about the game, to the point where I, a lowly PFC, dared to ask the exalted and lofty Captain about it during my check-in interview.

"Oh, that? I got it for the great Marine Corps picture...never played it."

I was smart enough not to point out that it was from a painting of the 24th Infantry Division, US Army, landing on Leyte.

Always wanted to play this one, even though it looks kind of like CandyLand re-themed to WWII. I wonder what happened to the Captain's copy?

Oh, and to the OP, I recommend Panzer Memo

Some could suggest Total War, but that may be more myth than real game.

Given that the OP specifies 9 1/2 maps he's deliberately describing Case Blue. In every other 'suggestion' thread we say 'case blue', whatever the requirements. I think it's only fair that we suggest anything but, in this instance.
