This is a list that lists different wargame series and systems. Please comment on existing ones or add any that is missing.

Do you like any of the series or systems, why? If you don't, why? Let us hear your comments.

Please add the unit level in the game description if you're adding a new series or system to the list. Please only state game facts in the game descriptions, keep opinions to the comments.

To qualify, there should be some sort of base rules for every game or module in the series or system. So, magazine series does not qualify by itself for example.

Tactical Combat Series (TCS)

"The Tactical Combat Series (TCS) brings the detail of small unit combat to the gaming table. Taking the role of Battalion or Company commander, TCS requires players to skillfully plan their assaults and their defenses through written Operations Sheets (Op Sheets). Units must follow orders as outlined on their Op Sheets. Unexpected circumstances can require split second decisions. Making these decisions is the easy part. Getting the orders to your troops, however, is another matter entirely."

Platoon level.

Bloody 110 is the first game in the series.

Commands & Colors: Ancients (C&C:A)

"The scale of the game fluctuates from battle to battle. For some scenarios, an infantry unit may represent a legion of fighters, while in other scenarios a unit may represent just a few brave warriors. But the tactics you need to execute conform remarkably well to the advantages and limitations inherent to the various units, their weapons, terrain and time."

Greatest one shot panel ever! The Amazing Spider Man Number 33

Great Campaigns of the American Civil War (GCACW).
This is an excellent operational level Civl War game series. The movement rules are based on commander ability augmented with a die roll and reflect the ability of commanders to get or keep their troops moving. The combat system is also very well done and the game shows how hard it was to co-ordinate Civil War armies into massive attacks(just wait unitl the first time you move three corps into position only to see your opponent slip away! angry shake ). I like Joe Balkoski designs in general and this is, IMO, his finest.

The Fleet Series

Speaking of Joe Balkoski....

The Fleet Series is an operational examination of naval warfare during the Cold War Era. Units represent individual ships and subs and aircraft as well. The game has standard rules for all types of combat (ASW, SSM, CM, etc...) as well as detection and movement. They system is then transposed onto various important geopolitical areas of the world (Sixth Fleet, the Med., 7th Fleet the Far East, 5th Fleet the Persian Gulf/South Asia, 2nd Fleet the North Atlantic, and 3rd Fleet the North Pacific, Western Atlantic, and Caribbean). If you learn one you can easily learn the others the only variation coming in specific reinforcement rules, although later games refined the system more and more. The only other significant difference to note is that Sixth Fleet uses a 1 while the other games use a d10-1 This is one of my favorite systems and the only one I enjoy more than the GCACW.

The Civil War Campaign Series from Clash of Arms
This is another operational level Civil War era game that uses area movement instead of hexes. Units clash and lose strenght points which are recorded on paper(which is annoying) but there is ample oppotunity for hidden movement as sides get dummy units to place in areas with only the flag side of their counters showing. There are standard rules covering all the movement and combat of each side and each game has its own exclusive rules. Games in the series include, Lee Takes Command (with a Grant Takes Command expansion available, but it must be purchased individually), Autumn of Glory, Marching Through Georgia, The GreatInvasion, Mississippi Fortress. I may have missed one, these are the ones I know about.
I wanted to like this series and it is good so long as you have someone willing to play. Adjustments for solitaire just don't work. shake
BTW, the maps in these games are beautiful.

A light tactical series at platoon level from lock and load publishing, covering a theoretical WWIII, where Russia invades west.

It is simple (only a few pages of rules) and reasonably fast playing, oh and very popular. There are only a few games in the series, but more are planned, as well as a WWII version.

Sadly another one I want to play, but haven't. The series features brigade level simulations of many battles and actions of the ACW. I understand it places emphasis on command and control and like all games from the gamers attempts to put the player in the commander's chair. Help me out here people if I am way off the mark

An extension of the CWBS, this uses a similar base rules set, with some changes, so that you can play the battles at Regimental level. Some of these definitely qualify as monsters, like This Hallowed Ground. The most recent game in the series is South Mountain, which is only one map.

then came this

Then came the WW2 games
