I'm drawn to two player games in an attempt or the excuse to claim more family time.

This game has a lot of elements that interest me. I love the alternate history aspect of it. That sparks my creativity. I enjoy playing wargames that recreate historical battles, but something like this is a little more up my alley. It's the story and setting that I love. To me, this game sounds like the first entry of many that could be set in this world.

The art and color palette on this game is really cool. I love playing a game that is beautiful to look at. That's what first drew my interest to it as an image of this game was the first thing I saw.

So envy. I envy anyone who has this game!

Wrath.

I'm drawn to Nuklear Winter '68 due to the theme of alternate history as well as the solo playing aspect.

Gluttony.

I love post-apocalyptic themes as well as weird world war II themes (Secrets of the Reich, Weird War II RPG, AE-WWII, etc.) and this seemed like a meshing of my two favorite themes!

If it has to be one aspect I'd have to go with the theme and atmosphere. I've been wanting to get into wargames but mostly for the mechanics and such rather than a desire for simulation so interesting or unique themes are a big draw.

Gluttony for more game if I have to pick.

The game is unlike anything I have in my collection currently. I don't have any alternate history wargames.

Alternate History, read many Harry Turtledove books (aliens invade in the middle of WW2, oh my!), as well as the Pseudo-Science stories/histories of the German "Wunderwaffe" at the end of the war.

Nick Cook's book "Hunt for Zero Point" made for an interesting read. How much of it is believable is a different point altogether...

So when I saw the German Saucer, it made me want the game as a lighter, not so serious take on the World War II theme.

Post-apocalyptic setting AND the possibility for 3 players?

Yes Please.

As in, "I'm envious of your superior artistic talent!" Seriously, this is one good-looking game. The theme is compelling and unique. It seems to be on the lighter side, accessible and quick-playing. It's a riff on a very well designed series of games. AND it's 3-player, so it fills a void in my collection.

Envy.

I just love the description that the Wehrmacht emerges from underground bunkers 22 YEARS after being nuked. That's a lot of time for some of those crazy leaders to plot (and envy) the world! They had a lot of time to create some crazy stuff...

Lust for an ever increasing dose of pure gaming goodness!

Pretty much everything I've seen has drawn my to this game. I LOVE the setting and the backstory, one aspect I find particularly interesting is that it's 1-3 players- that pretty much guarantees it will see lots of time on the table.

The post-apocalyptic theme is what drew my interest more than anything else.
