Terrible Swift Sword (1st Ed, SPI; 2nd Ed, TSR) has won the voting. Wasn't even close! TMP link

TSS (1st Ed. Flatpack) was my first acw boardgame. Still have it and still play it.

TSS was a great design but it is too much of a monster size game for the average board wargamer such as myself. Have played it maybe three times since it was released. Due to the size and over the top detail it provides I cannot concur in calling it Berg's best.

Allen: agreed, it is a monster.

As a wargamer from the 1960s, I was never into monster games. Too long to set up and too long to conduct a single turn.

I prefer the games he did with simple mechanics.
