Case Blue is the ultimate boardgame. It is "bigger then the box", takes years to master, and has many rules for enjoyable reading. Why need other game when Case Blue in house? Takes lifetime to play, not need other games! No more argument on game night — we play Case Blue! Same as always!

Case Blue requires deep thinking, strategy, and all pieces stacked up are impressive to display. The whole family can enjoy. Even old people can clip counters, giving them new purpose in life. Also, keeps them from walking outside in their underwear, offending the neighbors.

Case Blue is very inclusive. No matter what your country of origin, or politics, you can play! It has resource management for people who like economics, railroads for fans of 18xx, and a map of the world for people who like geography. Something for everyone! Even Liberal Arts major can play!

Case Blue is very ecomonical. Although the box costs a few days pay, it replaces all other games in your house. Want to play with railroads? Case Blue! Want to play with airplanes? Case Blue! Want a deep economic model, with many meaningful decisions? Case Blue!

So, why are you not playing Case Blue right now? It's the ultimate boardgame!

It doesn't interest me in the slightest.

And Commands and Colors: Ancients does much more (among many others).

"Untrue"?

Really: Case Blue doesn't interest me in the slightest. And CC:A does. Take that to the bank. CC:A interests me much more (and it's not the only one). Take that with you when you go.

Truly the only way I'd ever look at Case Blue was if you had a gun to my head and had shown me it was actually loaded.

Even then you'd still have to cock it first.

"(It is to laugh but politely and no angriness is my intentions.)'

No 'angriness' here either but I take it English isn't your native language.

I would if I could. I certainly have the inclination but I lack the time, the space ... oh yeah, and the game. Reprint it MMP, I'm all yours.

:innocent look:

Aside from the OOP part...

I'm waiting for the GMT East Front equivalent.

Runs, ducks and covers.

Or - now isn't the time to start getting into series with games that sometimes cost multiple hundreds of dollars before they went OOP.


And -I have no idea what the diceroll thing was -- of course since it was an option - I had to add one. I think I may have removed one of those tags from a mattress once too. :eek:

"Why are not everyone playing Case Blue?"

I don't understand the question.

If you had asked, "Why isn't everyone playing Case Blue?", I may have been able to answer

Typical case of 'because it's big, it's better'.

In wargames, as in many other things in life, size does not matter. It's what you do with it. And what I did with case Blue was to trade for a bunch of other games I actually enjoy playing. Don't regret it in the slightest.
