Here is a peek into what I hope to play next year + random add ons, extensions, and Pre Pubs that come my way!
2014 will hopefully be a busy gaming year , where I explore more titles than 2013, and perhaps invest a little less time in titles that I have played extensively.
That said GboH, OCS, SCS and TCS, as well as LNLP’s -WaW and LNL will still feature in my gaming.
1. Board Game: Aspern-Essling [Average Rating:6.78 Overall Rank: 3986 ]
This and 2 other titles to be played as a means of exploring the different rules systems for some of the titles I own, see list for the other titles. So far I like the NBS system at the tactical level the most.
The Jours de Glorie system squeaks in as tactical, but with large scale hexes. It joins the other two titles covering this battle.
This one is to play with my son. We will crack this open Jan 1st I hope!
4. Board Game: Case Blue [Average Rating:8.23 Overall Rank: 1154 ] [Average Rating:8.23 Unranked]
I’m on turn 3 of a play that will run Oct ’41 thru June/July 1942 (if it lasts that long and I can hack it) In Progress.
Play this with a view to writing a minor Review. I have to Grok this and understand why COIN system is so popular!!!
Either this or A Most Dangerous Time to use as a backdrop for a campaign that will have battle resolved on the GboH combat battlefield! yes I intend to try again!!!
This is for my ongoing
http://wp.me/p3euWn-75VBXR Walk thru WWII.
We recently played The Russian Campaign, this will make a nice contrast and perhaps a Side by Side comparison is in order?
The Aspern Essling Scenario as part of the multi title side by Side look at Tactical Napoleonics.
Campaign game, and likely at least 3 of the scenarios set in Libya. Whooot!
10. Board Game: Panzer (second edition) [Average Rating:8.00 Overall Rank: 1676 ] [Average Rating:8.00 Unranked]
I’d like to revisit this and play with Arty and Air. I wish there was a solution to the play sequence problem.
Finnish….doah Finish my campaign via VASSAL with Steve A!
The modules for this are begging to be played. This will start (when we get to it late 2014) the playing of all my WWIII titles, From Next War to Nato Division Commander, to NATO.
13. Board Game: Space Infantry: New Worlds [Average Rating:7.29 Unranked] [Average Rating:7.29 Unranked]
2 Scenarios or so more of this to finish of my story following Jugger the intrepid Squad commander and his adventures solving a mystery inside the USMEC with Colonel Graystain in the far flung future.
I’m going to start playing WaW in Chronological order! No rush, it will serve as the back drop to my Next War project, where we tackle all the biggies and many mid sized WWIII themed titles.
In addition to all of this goodness, I’d like to also get a learner game of Devils Cauldron in, and invest some time in Musket and Pike. M&P just deserves some love and focused attention as does about 100 other titles.
