I've been looking for a copy of this so I check back occasionally here and I keep getting tricked by your post. I see "$33.00/very good" and I think I finally found a copy. Stop teasing me, dude!

On another note, I wanted to give you thanks. I put a lot of stock into your opinions regarding war games and being a newbie, they're extremely helpful. I picked up Washington's War and Wilderness War based on your videos. I'm glad to see GMT is putting mounted maps in their boxes. I remember being rather put off with the paper maps a few years ago. I guess that comes from finding the hobby through euro games.

Off the top of your head, could you recommend some good war games for a noob like me that play in 3 hours or less?

Happy New Year!

Some of my favorites for that time are Twilight Struggle, D-Day at Omaha Beach, and Conflict of Heroes.

  1. Labyrinth is really good too, especially if you decide that you like CDGs.

    Another quick tactical system worth looking into is Lock N Load's "World at War"/"Nations at War" games. World at War started with Eisenbach Gap and now has several games out covering a 1980's WWIII. Nations at War has one game out so far White Star Rising and covers WWII. Both settings run on basically the same rules.
