Check this:




I bought a few board wargames:
Empire of the Sun ==> Pacific WW2
Unconditional Surrender ==> Europe WW2
Fire in the Lake ==> Vietnam

has anybody tried any of them? it will take me some time to read and check them, and
obviously 1st priority is Empire of the Sun;

what I liked about them (the 3 of them) is that they include "solitaire" rules, as you know it is very hard to find opponents and I hate "virtual tabletops"

You can still play against a real opponent with VASSAL, a Java platform that simulates the boardgame (maps and counters), the most famous wargames are all included.

I never played EotS but lot of players give me very positive feedbacks.

I think do you already have checked BGG?


Anyhow very good titles, congrats

Just looking at the picture makes me nostalgic for board games.

Yeah, a virgin sheet of counters is just lovely.

I have boxes and boxes of board games in a cabinet, including nearly mint copies of Pacific War and Empire of the Rising Sun. I used to buy games, thinking that I'd eventually meet somebody somewhere that enjoyed playing them. That never happened.

The last time I played a serious board wargame probably was early in my college years, when there was a group that occasionally played Avolon Hill's Third Reich.

In the summer of 1984, I lived in a small, un-airconditioned old mill house in Union Point, Georgia, while working for a timber company. I had no television and didn't know anybody in town. After work, at night, I listed to the Atlanta Braves on the radio and either read books or played solo matches of Gettysburg by Strategy Games. That was fun.

I used to play a few board games including Third Reich. One of my opponents lost Paris in 1939 . . .

It could happen if you weren't careful, or didn't have a good knowledge of the game.
