Ok have our wargaming group coming over for some gaming. We have several CPU's and x2 wall projectors. Curious what games would you recommend where we can work on turns SIMULTANEOUSLY either in 2 (or more) separate groups? We want to be completing our turns at the same time (within reason) and watching the results at the same time. No down time.....

Any wargame would do......prefer grand strategic ones.....Any recommendations?

True, very fun indeed. HOI3 though had some issues. Any Matrix games you might suggest?

All of the Ageod games are Wego. Frank Hunters games are Wego. Pandora can be played live head to head. As can all the Close Combat games.

Does Combat Mission series count?

If you are at all interested for something different, Artemis is great fun for small group. Cooperative multiplayer game, where all players operate one armed spaceship. Check it out.

Grand Strategic: World in Flames

Hands down the greatest game ever made.

Thanks Artemis was a blast. I would counter with a newer version LOST PULSAR. Even better.

Battle Academy. You'll all be processing turns as fast as you can play them which is generally in mere minutes on average, and everyone can watch to a point. You can alternate players on teams for added amusement.
