I did a list a few years back on card driven wargames but in the last few years a ton of new titles featuring Mark Herman's now extremely popular system have emerged. In the last few months I've seen a couple of threads from folks who have played Twilight Struggle and have enjoyed it so much that they're looking for another game using the system. Thus my thinking is that a list showing all the games under one roof would be useful to someone like that.

I have tried to get every game that uses the system on the list thus the use of the word "comprehensive" in the title. I am sure there are going to be a few I've missed either because they're new upcoming games that I haven't heard of or simply I forgot them. Feel free to add a game to the list as long as it is based on Mark Herman's system. See my rules for definition below.

Definition: Ok, before we get to the games let get this out of the way. Yes, we know that other wargames use cards and that some people have a problem with the term card driven wargame. There is some validity to that argument and maybe the term HSG (Herman System Game) or something of that nature might be a better term. However if you want to debate that please make a separate thread where you can debate it to your heart's content and where people who want to discuss it with you I am sure will take part. This list is about games based on the system created by Mark Herman for his game We The People. So no adding Kingmaker or Memoir '44 to the list so you can use it as an excuse to hijack it and turn it into a soapbox for you to complain about the term. So no beating the poor dead horse.
