1. Empire of the Sun

A classic here, but one that I had never tried until this year. A revelation for me. Only soloed, but even that was great fun. So many clever things going on in the game, and each and every card has to be considered very carefully before being played. Really looking forward to playing this again, as there are so many strategies to be pursued, and of course the card draw makes for near endless replayability. Those epic carrier battles were really tense affairs.

2. Battles of the Bulge: Celles

Having enjoyed the two 1066 titles from Revolution Games, I thought I'd take the plunge with their Bulge game. Very taken with this simple system and the narrative it can provide with such a small footprint and small number of counters. Some new-to-me mechanics such as movement and combat rolled into one, and the ability to use layered activations to dislodge the enemy make this game fresh and enjoyable. Chit-pull makes it solo-friendly which is a big plus for me.

3. Sicily II

I have enjoyed everything OCS that I had played so far, and this was no exception. It may be a small map for OCS, but there's a lot going on. The air war is a game in itself, and that combined with the naval component and the invasion with amphibious landings makes for a real brain-burner. Thoroughly enjoyed this one. Tunisia II is on the horizon next year.

4. Desert Fox Deluxe

This mini-monster ticked a lot of boxes for me. It gives you the ability to play out the entire North African Campaign, including Tunisia in a manageable(ish) format. Or you can play one of the several scenarios. The rules were not the easiest to digest, but the sheer scope of the game made up for this in my book. Some nice mechanics going on in terms of supply (felt like proto-OCS) and the combat. Will definitely give it another spin.

5. Battle of the Little Bighorn

I liked some of the mechanics in this one, and the narrative that they produced. I know nothing about this historical event other than what Hollywood has shown me! A nice solo experience, but I'm not sure how well it would play 2-player as it doesn't appear that Custer has much of a chance.

6. The Guns of Gettysburg

A Gettysburg game that can be played in day! Normally games on this battle involved 4 maps and squillions of counters. Nice to see such an innovative take on the battle (as you would expect from Simmons). I enjoy the aesthetics of this game as much as anything, it really feels like you are a commander looking at a map about to send a courier with a message to your various regiments. The way artillery is handled is also nice, and the random arrivals give the game a lot of replay value.

7. Gazala: The Cauldron

Celles' sister game, and has all the signs of being just as good. Haven't ranked it as highly yet as I haven't played it quite as much as Celles. The system seems to stand up to a move to a different theatre. This battle is wide open, and I mean wide open. At times you can feel there are too many choices, and that leaves you with some agonizing choices. That's my kind of game!

8. La Bataille des Quatre Bras

My first foray into La Bat, and so far I like what I have found. I have played some BAR and love that system. There are some similarities in terms of granularity and the procedural nature of the games. One thing I'm still not sure of is which rules to use? At the moment I'm using the rules which came in the box. But there are two (at least two perhaps) standard system sets of rules (Regs and Marie Louise) which can be used. The maps and counters are very evocative of the period; and the various phases of the game give you a lot of interesting choices. You also have to be aware of the Command rules which can restrict what you are able to do. I enjoy the frustration this can cause as your units sit there unable to move as you would want them to, very realistic! I'm not sure if I would have the stamina to set up one of the bigger battles for a solo run-through, but you never know...

9. Festung Europa: The Campaign for Western Europe, 1943-1945

I have only played this twice solo, so I need to explore the game more, and undoubtedly I'm losing a lot by playing solo. That said, I saw enough here to show me that the game could be a very enjoyable game opposed. Like so many Card Assisted/Driven Games this one throws up a lot of difficult choices. Seems to simulate the theatre well, and keeps the rules overhead fairly low. The only slight negative was that at times I felt that I was playing replacement ping-pong as the Germans could use cards to replace step losses making for quite a bit of stagnation in the front lines. Very historical of course, but as a game mechanic it felt a bit dull at times. That could be down to me not using my imagination enough with the cards though, and not having played the game enough.

10. No Retreat 4! Italian Front: 1943-45

Another very enjoyable Card Assisted Wargame. More of a traditional hex and counter game, but the cards are vital. Lots of knacky little mechanics in this one to simulate what is a very difficult campaign to simulate and game. The landings work well, and Carl has succeeded in depicting the attritional nature of the campaign very well. I really enjoyed my game of this, and I'll definitely be returning to it in the new year.

In the end, apart from Empire of the Sun, I could have placed the rest of the games in almost any order. They are all great games which I really enjoyed, and many of them were so different in their mechanics and rules that they were difficult to compare.

also some counters - ship counter fixes from c3i22

and some extra counters/markers from c3i 26

and some articles, a strategy article and a "bots in the pacific" article

Place 60:
(Revealed 10/22)

In "Empire of the Sun" hat Mark Herman das Kartenaktivierungssystem aus seinem früheren "We the People" (Platz 76) übernommen und für den Krieg im Pazifik ausgebaut. Dieser Konflikt mit seinen zahlreichen amphibischen Landungen und Flugzeugträgerschlachten erfordert von den beiden Spielern ein immenses Maß an operationaler Planung. Dieses Spiel ist echt anstrengend, aber wegen seines eleganten Designs und seiner Historizität auch sehr befriedigend.

Vassal via email or drop-box.

I've played a few vassal matches and studied a lot solo against the bot included in the second printing.

Teach: Heck no. That'd be a real chore. The rules are available online and there are excellent youtube instructional videos on how the game and vassal module works if you'd rather see that, which are a better teacher, anyway, than I would be.


OPPONENTS FOUND! THANKS!

As I wrote above, Scythe is a decent engine builder (with some combat aspects, but those are somewhat discouraged). But it's lost most of its appeal already to me; though I'll give it another shot with a bigger group. And when B. wants to pull it out again...

Schlock Mercenary: Capital Offensive was one of our freebies from last year's BGG.con. Much more fun than it looked; it's essentially a simple 2p combat game with silly take-that effects. We played the intro scenario, which has countless legal drones trying to hold off a crack team of 3 mercenaries. The legal team failed .

Empire of the Sun was good fun. We got about 2 turns done (out of 3) in the 1942 scenario. Japan managed to overrun India; and that was (essentially) that. Curious as to what kind of long-term strategy the allies should pursue.

Fight for Olympus is a nice little 2p cardgame. Though one has to be a bit more aggressive than we were; I won handily by having 6 units in play. One of them being immune to its opponent did help .

Carrying this over from July. Ended turn 4. Made some rule errors that I wasn't able to go back and correct, but that's the name of this game with a vast majority of the rulebook being needed each turn.

Mandates have been liberated by the Allies and the South will be where the fall of Japan will begin. The CBI is getting crowded. It's going to get interesting in the north during 1943.

WIE is as far up as it can get.

Battle for the Mandates

C.A.T. Offensive (Card 9C)

So it's been a week since I came home from game night and saw EotS NOT on the table, but nicely put away into it's box (and everything placed in it's correct place).

I asked my wife what happened and she told me it was the C.A.T. Offensive. This is the 4th game that I've lost from the C.A.T Offensive. The hardest one was 3 months of Silent War when the C.A.T Offensive took place.

I hate that cat. Onto something else.

Still trying to cross this off my "Games I need to play in 2016" list. Please help me! I've read the rules and pushed some counters around.

We can pick a short scenario, set a time limit if need be, play Plan Orange instead, whatever. I'm flexible.

At LT Thursday eve, Fri, and Sat.
