The game that I have wanted, but had not pulled the trigger on. I have it on the way and now have all of the Combat Commander stuff. (Like host Nick!)

On sale, then 50 % off, I thought a lighter Middle Age war game would be handy to have around.

Those blocks sure look nice.

I ordered this. This is a great game that isn't getting enough play. So, I figured it's chances of getting played would go up if it was always handy at SNEW. I really like the asset system as it adds a lot of interesting decisions as you plan out your turn with what you have available. Both sides are interesting to play. You really need to push very hard as the Germans, stretching as far as you can, while the Americans have difficult work filling gaps with limited resources.

The wargameroom.com implementation of this is really nice, too.

At $12.50 ($25 on sale, plus 50% off) this was a no brainer. I also own Saratoga, the first game in the series, and like it. It is a fairly basic game system, as well, and easy to get into. I also have hopes of playing these games with the boys when they get older and are studying US History in more depth.

I also convinced a friend at work to buy one. I occasionally play euros with him at lunch, but knew he was into battle games and the history of the American Revolution. Hopefully he'll enjoy the game and we'll have a convert!

After really getting into CDG's in a big way the past few years, I've developed a craving for hex-and-counter. This game covers an interesting topic using a simplified version of the system found in the very popular Ardennes '44. It's just the kind of game I've been hankering for!

Sword of Rome is an excellent game the we've enjoyed quite a few times at SNEW. It plays great with 3, 4, or 5 (with the expansion, which will be included in the reprint), which is perfect as we need more quality games that work well with odd numbers. It needed to be in my collection...and so it was pre-ordered! Hopefully it won't be too long before it is reprinted.

Almost bought this from Thoughthammer a couple of months ago, it would have been in the same order as Taktika but I held off. Now I'm glad I did. Jay is interested in this as well so it may be the hook to get him to SNEW sometime.

Pretty cheap and maybe this will pull it off the P500 list. If not no big loss.
