"We ought to give thanks for all fortune: if it is good, because it is good, if bad, because it works in us patience, humility and the contempt of this world and the hope of our eternal country." -C.S. Lewis

Star Wars: X-Wing has made it back into my Top 10, in large part thanks to a great Squadron Builder tool. When the points are kept to ~100 per side, the pace feels like a dogfight, and with so many customizable ships, there's a lot of replay value. Still looking for a similar fleet builder app for Star Trek: Attack Wing, essentially the same game with vessels and crew from the various Star Trek series. The miniatures from these games can also be used with other titles, including Federation Commander and Silent Death.

The Fast Action Battles Series (FAB) has also been a recent highlight, particularly since both games had been collecting dust on my shelf. I had a lackluster play of the Nuts! intro scenario a few years back, but after reading a positive review, I opted to try a longer FAB: The Bulge scenario. With a better understanding of the core mechanics, the game was (predictably) much more enjoyable. Both Bulge and Sicily have innovative mechanics, are loaded with tension, and build a nice narrative. While no longer new, these are probably my favorites for 2015 so far.
