Russian Campaign is tough to beat, but Storm Over Arnhem, War at Sea, Victory in the Pacific, Starship Troopers, and many others still provide enjoyment for me to this day.

1982-ish Battle of the Bulge and War at Sea. Though Third Reich probably got the most actual gameplay.

Jutland, although it was maybe more of a miniatures game with cardboard counters.

cfielitz10 Aug 2017 8:59 a.m. PST

Midway, Panzer Leader, and Panzer Blitz.

Personal logo Patrick R Supporting Member of TMP10 Aug 2017 9:03 a.m. PST

So many to choose from.

Anzio, D-Day, Civilisation, Jutland, Third Reich, Air Force …

Third Reich

pvernon10 Aug 2017 9:23 a.m. PST

I hate to say it, but YES. I truly enjoyed all of the above.

Personal logo piper909 Supporting Member of TMP Inactive Member10 Aug 2017 9:50 a.m. PST

That's a toughie. I probably played their edition of Kingmaker more than any of the others, though.

Midway. It was like a miniature's game. I also love source of the Nile but the original version not the Avalon Hills version.

Timmo uk10 Aug 2017 10:44 a.m. PST


always wanted to get Midway or Flat Top but never did.

Caesar at Alesia, Alexander, Fortress Europa and France 1940.

goragrad10 Aug 2017 12:33 p.m. PST

Tobruk, Wooden Ships & Iron Men.

Although the original Gettysburg was the first board game I ever played. Neighbor owned it and his son and I tried playing it several times – we missed the part about moving more than on unit per turn and it took forever to get anything accomplished…

Then my parents bought my brother who had little interest in them Blitzkrieg which I think I got him to play twice. Had to wait for my younger brothers to reach high school age to get in any more games.

Bill Rosser Supporting Member of TMP10 Aug 2017 1:07 p.m. PST

Stalingrad was played the most. I liked them all though.
