Back to News Listing Crown of Glory wins CSR Award, Matrix Games Sweeps Charles S. Roberts Category

Posted: Friday, August 18, 2006 by Matrix Support

Type: News

Crown of Glory has taken home another award.  This time it is Best Pre-20th Century Era Wargame.  Once again Crown of Glory and the Western Civilization team has been recognized by the industry and by all of our fans for their excellent product.  On behalf of Matrix Games and Western Civilization we extend a huge thank-you to those people who believed in this product.  Be sure to congratulate them on the Crown of Glory Forums and don’t forget stay up to date on their next Civil War game, Forge of Freedom.

However, there was no winner this year in the 20th Century Era Wargame category of the Charles S. Roberts awards.  Why?  It just so happens Matrix Games secured all three nominations and all three were too close to call.  The result: All three games received an official honorable mention- but in our eyes all three deserve credit for a victory!

 

So congratulations to Gary Grigsby’s World at War, War Plan Orange: Dreadnoughts of the Pacific 1922-1930, and Flashpoint Germany for their wonderful achievement.

 

Finally, I wouldn’t want to leave out Tin Soldiers: Julius Caesar, which was nominated along side Crown of Glory for Best Pre-20th Century Era Wargame.  It couldn’t have lost to a more deserving game and Tin Soldiers: Julius Caesar certainly deserved the nomination.

 

So we would like to thank our developers for making great games, but most of all we’d like to thank our fans for nominating and supporting us each year.

Pike & Shot is now available!

Thursday, October 16, 2014

"Not only strike while the iron is hot, but make it hot by striking.” (Oliver Cromwell – English military and political leader)

In the age of Pike and Shot, mighty struggles erupted across Europe for religious, political or dynastic causes. The greatest powers of that period were regularly involved in conflicts and struggles to increase their dominance over the continent. Some countries have also to deal with inner tensions and are torn apart between factions. War is in the air. But war has changed. Due to the development of new technologies, traditional medieval tactics have been substituted with a totally different approach to effectively utilise the new formations and weapons.
