I like Pandemic. My son's favorite is Castle Panic.

Been doing 7th Continent, but feel stuck on first curse, and may starve before finishing.

Tried to like Gloomhaven, but it feels too much like you have to get everything right. I don't like games where you can't recover from a mistake and have to play perfectly. Too stressful.

"Red Star/White Eagle" on the Russo-Polish War.

Published by GDW in 1979; recently re-issued in an updated version by Compass Games.

Very good presentation of an interesting period to game. RPW is a branch of the RCW. If you like one, you'll enjoy the other.

I would also suggest "1754" for those interested in the FIW.

Many of my old AH, SPI, Conflict, GDW, Jagdpanther, etc. board games. They were very good in many cases. Some real learning experiences with history, tactics and strategy …

@Bashytubits, delayed comment here, I'll also be miniaturising my Awful Green Things at some point!

Back in December, I got the bases all prepped to size, painted, and labelled. Likely sometime this summer I'll take a diversion from other projects and make Fimo figures
