Yep, use to get the SPI magazine with game.
Also own Dark December - actually a pretty good game.
Biggest problems I had with all the board games was of course finding a place to set it up and leave it and most of all, had to do most of my playing solitare due to lack of opponenents and a work/time schedule that made it near impossible to finish games with anyone.
I can still recall the excitement or ordering a game, getting it in the mail, and spending time setting it up and appreciating the map, counters, rules etc. Even though it was hard to "surprise" yourself with unexpected strategies playing solitare, it was still plenty enjoyable to play. And if you played as "unbiased" as you could, you would find that the other sides last move, left them more vulnerable then you expected when you made the move, and then you could launch a great counter.
I still think for some of us, faithful computer reproductions of many of the classic board war games, would be must buys for "old grognards" like me.
Have to agree here.
