But, never did?....I always liked the American Heritage games when I was a kid, Broadsides, Dogfight and Battle Cry. Those were some of my greatest memories playing against my friend with them. Broadsides and Dogfight especially.

What game(s) would you like to see come to the PC?

Weeeeeeeell If it was just a matter of putting the board game onto a computer so as to eliminate the usual "where to put it to play it."

The Longest Day.

With the understanding it would have no AI, no AI would ever be coming, and multi player only if you could find people willing to realize the interaction would not alter from the board game at all.

And Up Front done the way they do Hearthstone ie an online game interface between too people. With no collectible aspect though.

I think Columbia Games has a number of games that would be fun as a live experience design too.

A hex based game on the American Civil War and the Korean War.(There were a couple good ones in the days of DOS but today's technology would really be a vast improvement).

I agree..

A Commander series Civil War (CTCW) hex style, none of all auto resolve battles like in wego Ageoad stuff, let the player get the action...

Flattop! I think that is its name. It would need AI so I could finally play it. I owned it as a kid with no one to play it against.

Warbirds:Canvas Falcons (Designer on the look out for someone to convert to PC) Highly detailed and complex game totally suited for a PC conversion. Would make a great companion game to Bloody April.

Wings of Glory (again lots of failed attempts but designer wants to see it on the PC)

Streets of Stalingrad. Expect to see a review of the new edition, which is due to launch early next year, over at the blog (I do know they'd like to see a PC conversion)

NUTS! with Clash of Titans and Stalingrad expansions by Two Hour Wargames. (Designer on the look out for someone to convert to PC) This would be the greatest man vs man wargame to be developed onto the PC.

Car Wars and expansions. Using the last decent set of rules that came in the deluxe version.


One of the games I wanted to see was Bloody April and thankfully that's going to happen! Now to see those above converted.

Hmm they vassaled The Longest Day eh, had thought maybe, was not sure. Thanks 'E' :) not much of a name to point at hehe.

You have not heard of Hearthstone eh. That's like saying "what's ASL?" :) Oh well, I don't imagine anyone on a Hearthstone forum has any clue what ASL means.

I might pursue looking into the Vassal module.

Would love to see a modern version of this game, and also Avalon Hill's Midway.

Was this the game with Persian, Carthiginian and maybe Roman?

If so, I think that was the game that introduced me to this hobby. My wife and I picked it up in a Krochs and Brentano's book store in the chicago northwest suburbs.

Love the combat\driving mechanics in Darkwind. I'd like to see a WW1 air combat game using similar mechanics but adding a Z axis.

Do wish though Darkwind had a proper offline single player game.

' The Conquerors' by SPI, was actually three games in one
It was about Alexander's invasion of the Persian empire, along
With the Roman wars against Phillip V and Antiochus the Great.

I liked a little board game called 'Source of the Nile'. I made a little ANSI computer game of it long ago. A graphical computer game might be fun. But this was many years ago so it might not be in today's tastes.

That was great little Exploration-Strategy game! I certainly have a taste for a game like that and were probably not alone...it would be a good graphical conversion!

Carrier Strike was nearly same game for Atari nd Commodore, also played on my IBM PC...Nowadays, suggest you try WITP or WITP AE...Same concept on a much larger scale but smaller scenarios will work nicely.

Just for the helluvit..."Crush,Crumble and Chomp" offered several major cities, (Tokyo, NYC, London, Frisco...and even Sheboygan, LOL..

Player could creat one of maybe 20 famous old movie monsters (Godzilla, Rodan, King Kong, etc...and went about tearing stuff up...Lotta fun and ya got points for survivng the attempts from puny humans trying to avoid being eaten, (Oh, yeah...the great sound effects of people screaming and then slow chewing noises.) LOL....

Another game was something like Treausre Conquest where you went into a town...bought treasure maps and "clues" from shady characters and then financed a team to go deep sea or SCUBA diving for treasure in the oceans.

An earlier attempt with "dot" graphics was Mare Tesoro....Same concept as above.


Scads of ideas for "Beer and Pretzel" type games which might yield a quick buck for a game company...games like Railroad Tycoon, but involving building an empire of MISSISSIPI RIVERBOATS...There are several rivers which were navigable running off that great river and the history and importance of the bats was monumental.

Heck, I would even volunteer to do the historic research on that one!!!

They made a game simular to this for the Amiga 500 if I remember correctly called "Waterloo" it was a command and control game where you sent messages only to your commanders and they tried to carry them out. But, it had block units with these types of graphics. I liked it at the time. I really do like command and control games where I am just the commander and can't exploit he ai so easily if I play all the units. It's on the PC now as well so you can probably get a DoxBox version to work.

Been there, done that, got the tee shirt... Carrier Force, Carriers at War, Carrier Strike, etc, etc. (although I've been too lazy to fix my copy when Vassal 2.6'ish broke it, there is a Vassal module for Flattop... you might actually find someone to play it against!)
