There are 4 other series in the same title though none play as fast as this: Battle Cry: 150th Civil War Anniversary Edition, BattleLore, Commands & Colors: Ancients, and Commands & Colors: Napoleonics.

What else do you like about it besides the quickness? 2-player? WWII theme? War theme?

Well, Sirocco is considered the "Daddy" of all the Memoir games - very similar card play, two player, WW2 theme, etc.

It is not a bad little game- I own it, and have found it fun.

You can find it for sale here on BGG or on Ebay - it is an older game, and most likely it will be a used copy. But I think you would like it.

I like the game play, I like the war theme but I'm not looking for a war game so much just like this type of game mechanic, any theme would work any other type of simple war game would intrest me as well

I 44 the fasted of this type of game. I know that it can be played in a 1/2 hr. a game that can be played that fast so people can get in other games is fun, the option to play longer isn't bad thing, I just like faster games, not into 2 hr. + games

I think the names mentioned cover most of your options. A lot of M44 gamers also play another light game, Tide of Iron. However, ToI, although light, is not as light as M44.

Never tried Tide of Iron myself but I can recommend Band of Brothers and Conflict of Heroes if you want fast play but more depth. That said, the Commands and Colors system is unique and any comparison to games out side of the C&C family is probably misleading.

Edit: to provide links

Any simple war game would be cool, I tried monsterpoc, and liked it so I guess I'm looking for light war games

I agree. I like m44 because it is low-level quasi-operational.
