Thinking of ordering Nuklear Winter '68 for my introduction but figured I'd make a post and see what else is out there.

Will be playing it mosty solitaire but would like the option for 2+ player

Price is not really an issue but size/complexity are. I'm playing on a coffee table so things like The Devil's Cauldron: The Battles for Arnhem and Nijmegen are (unfortunately) out. Ideally I'd like it to be in print

But would love to hear some titles that have impressed some of you.

Thank you, in advance!

Forgive the bias but I make a lot of games that are chit pull...a few of mine I would recommend in this order:

Bravery in the Sand
A Victory Lost
No Question of Surrender (if you want to try Devil's Cauldron out on a table top)
A Most Dangerous Time if you want out of WWII


Across 5 Aprils is excellent too.

The Victory Point Games series of Market Garden games uses a chit pull system, and they are simple and have a small footprint to boot.

Like the other poster said, there are lots of games out there that use this mechanism...

Another vote for Across 5 Aprils.
The World at War series, e.g. World at War: Eisenbach Gap also uses chit pull activation.

Case Yellow doesn't activate formations on chit pulls tho'. It limits player choices based on chit pull.

games in the series Jours de Gloire (Days of glory) use a very cool chit pull system to activate formations. I just discovered them, and I love the system!! In a moment of shamelesse self-promotion, I'll point out that in a day or two I am releasing a video review for Fuentes de Onoro 1811, where I illustrate the system in general, in case you want to get a sense of how it works. Most of these games come with English rules.

Also, Nations at War: White Star Rising, which is a lot of fun.

Worthington's Guns of August is a good one still in print, and both it and the upcoming Guns of Galicia use the chit-pull mechanism.

The new version of 3rd Reich uses a chit pull. It's a neat idea, but the game as a whole is chrome overload.

Thank you everyone for the very helpful recomendations.

I went with, No Question of Surrender, a title I had never heard of before this list and sounded very interesting based on the one review on it's page here.

Bravery in the Sand, also sounded like something I'd enjoy but doesn't seem too readily avalable. Same with, Across 5 Aprils which has been on my wishlist for a little while.

The Victory Lost/Denied games have also been on my radar but I'm going to make myself really give, No Retreat: The Russian Front a full chance before moving on to a different East Front game.

Same goes for the WWI titles, which also sound fun but I am still only scratching the surface with, Paths of Glory. A game I fell in love with but sadly hardly ever get to play.

The LockNLoad titles always look/sound so great to me and I feel forever right on the verge of buying any of them. NW68 just has such an unique story to go along with it. I'm pretty sure once America Conquered drops I won't be able to talk myself out of one anymore.

And Marco, I will await your, Days of Honor video, as I do all of your excellent reviews.

Nobody's mentioned Panzer Command? Its system was used in The Devil's Cauldron.

It's a one-mapper with several scenarios, a DYO scenario option, with good solitaire playability (although the focus on opportunity fire lessens this slightly.)

I know I'm a little late here but I can recommend 'Salla' and 'Kastenga' from Pacific Rim games - very small quick play games but very good. And with an interesting twist in the movement and combat system.
