I started wargaming in the 70s with Empire II and Angriff (miniatures-based) and also played many of the more complicated wargames (boardgames) from AH and SPI. I enjoyed the hell out of all of them. Keep in mind that it often took all day, if not a weekend, to play the game.

However, today, as an adult who works more than full time, has a family, and is active in my church, time is an issue. I need a game that can be set up and played in 3-4 hours and cannot be complex.

When I retire, I'll probably go back to also playing more complicated games, but these days, if I see too many complicated tables, I set the rules down.

That's the reality.
