I'd like to see GDW's Third World War - expanded to cover the whole world, naval units and rules, and expanded politics.

Avalon Hill's Bismarck. Just imagine what they could do with that boardgame on computer....


I didn´t play it but I liked "Flat Top" which I also believe would be a decent computer game on a easier level then WitP for example.

I may have misunderstood this thread and previously posted kind of a wish list; If we are talking board-game re-makes for the PC...

I'd pay for

* Bloody April 1917 - Air War of Arras France. (Terry Simo)

* Empire of the Sun - the Pacific War 1941-1945 (Mark Herman)

* Downtown- Air war over Hanoi 1965-1972 (Lee Brimmicombe-Wood)

and maybe *Elusive Victory- Air War over the Suez Canal 1967 to 1973 (Terry Simo)

All are board-games by GMT. I'm surprised by the number of air combat games I picked but I think the PC FOW would really work as opposed to using dummy counters.

NWS's "Rule the Waves" with graphics fit for the 80s, or maybe even 90s.

A game in which the AI can handle a half decent attack (yet to see one); where you have to give realistic military style orders that take time to change (Ditto); where there is a proper command and control system that imposes real limits as to who you can give orders to (ditto); that imposes sensible limits to casualties before units call off suicidal attacks (ditto).
One can dream.

This is my first post on this forum, the above is definitely one I would love to see and play, there needs to be a good divisional level Third World War game.

-A modernized version of "Age of Rifles"

-A modernized version of Steel Panthers (someday we are going to see a pic from Steel Tigers )

-A modernized version of "Age of Sail II" (with luck we can see it in next years, part anounce of Age of Sail III and that i know a guy want work in a nap naval title after release his last ancient naval battles game hehehe).

-An operatinal-strategic game covering WWI air combat with research-production-creation of units-control over front use of air units, here i think in a mix of HPS "Defending the reich" with the turns like for RAF player, you give orders and turns are resolved in WEGO style but with level of detail of Gribsby air games.

I really want see the WWI title because the air operational-stragic wargames are rare for PC and if we talk about WWI...

Since we have a new Steel Panthers remake coming up my next wishes would be Tactical Naval and Tactical Air combat games

Age of Sail, Russo-WWI, WWII naval warfare...I cannot get enough and we have an ancient title now in Mare Nostrum, we need to keep it going. I still play Age of Sail to get my fix...would love a remake. Real time is fine...but...I sure would like a system that would allow PBEM. NWS has done a great job but they are limited to one man developers with limited resources and time. Matrix is just the company we need to make a nice looking, detailed series of tactical naval simulations.

Tactical air war of the WWI and WWII periods is even less represented than naval warfare! I would think that it would lend itself really well to a computer simulation (not a 3D simulator...we have those). There are plenty of great board games that could be ported. Again, I would really like to see them PBEM capable as well.

I bought it as a 12 year old and never got to play it. I think my mother threw it out when I left for college. She threw away a lot of my stuff.

A really large WiTp-AE type style game for D-Day. Something that is as big as that and takes as long to learn to play.

And a FUN Hundred Years War. I used to campaign for Ageod to build a HYW game, but I don't think their engine could do it. I don't know if any engine could do it. But that is what I want. It may be a pipe dream, but there you go.

The 'Starship Troopers' boardgame was quite popular 40 years ago (yes I'm THAT old and was just a callow youth back then), so maybe it could be re-done for modern computers?




PS- Here's a pic from the pre-home computer stone age, me (on right) and Gaz Newton with some of the boardgames we used to play in the 1970's/80's-

I would pay a good sum for war games that had really good supply rules. Make it important to defend supply routes such as sea convoys, Transit areas, Transit points, truck and rail routes. Be able to have real interdiction missions, TOAW comes close with interdiction of supplies, want more control not just theatre percentages. If units run out of supply they stop shooting or moving like in Panzer Corps. Don't like abstracted rules like out of supply, so units fight at half strength etc etc. I can vaguely recall in my reserve days in the early seventies being told for every soldier at the pointy end seven more are required to keep them there. I want to wage war on these guys, but not with abstract rules lets really shoot at them

Sadly neither. This is a war game that, by almost any measure, by any definition, by any standard, should be made. Sadly the one measure it fails on is that its not the Pacific, The Bulge, The East Front. Therefore it fails on economics and you can't get around that.

So a theatre of war that is one of the most interesting of WWII, a war that could have gone either way, a war that would appeal to land and naval war players alike, will never get made. Such a shame.

There's certainly a gap in the market (as far as I know) for a Prehistoric Wargame where tribes struggle to survive in combat against rival tribes and dinosaurs.
Victory points could be scored on a scale of how dangerous a beast is, for example a T Rex kill would rack up big points-

"Ugh...me no like you...ugh"

I'd like a Civ type game of that from the earliest time, but it would be much much more detailed than Civ and even having said that would be simple still like Civ 1. A tech tree that was 10 times as big as Civ 1's. But without all the added crap they added in later versions.

Strategy game overlay American Civil War game on top of Norbsoft's Civil War series. Where you move and play diplomacy on top and have real time battles with built units from the top in tactical battles around the map. Kinda like Total War but with Norb's combat engine and the American Civil War.

I second this idea pus a CW naval component
