OMG. Tactics 11 was my first war board game back in 1980 when I was 12 years old. This game was what got me into war gaming. Thanks for sharing this.

Tactics II was actually my 3rd or 4th game from Avalon Hill, I got Stalingrad first and then Battle of the Bulge, Waterloo and then I think Tactics II.

In the old days we had to make our own wargames. We used salt shakers for counters and rolled the family dog in lieu of a die.

I have that game in the desk drawer. Plus, the first game I bought was Tobruk in the 70's. I am still mad about what happened to it? I think I let someone borrow it in the eighties and it disappeared forever. I still own air assault on Crete and single player Ambush.

However, I computer games, no opponent needed.

Sadly I wasn't aware of Avalon Hill's existence until a few years before the company was purchased by Hasbro Games on 4 August 1998. By then I was no longer in the market for box games, but I did buy a number of their DOS games: Cavewars, Wooden Ships & Iron Men, Stalingrad, 1830: Railroads & Robber Barons, Advanced Civilization, D-Day: America Invades, Kingmaker, 5th Fleet, and Third Reich.

I also had Guderian but never had someone to play against. I sold it online and stayed with computer games.

In a way both are different worlds in there own right (PC vs Board). Each have there pros and cons, but back to the nostalgia thing, having a game like Tactics II in your collection is like having "Blues from Laurel Canyon" (John Mayall/Peter Green) on LP (Decca) in your record collection, you might not play it alot but it made history, and it´s so cool to have, look at!

The first wargame I ever played was the old SSI Panzer General from 1994. It was that year or the following year when I played it, pretty soon after it came out.

Much more simplistic than the games that interest me today, but it got me into wargaming.
