Well, allow me to mention that I voted for several periods where I only play the aerial aspect of the war or where the aerial aspect was not there historically but gets included in some, not all, of my games (VSF for example in the 19th Century games.)

I suspect there are war gamers that only play naval games. I believe there was a poll "eons" ago on TMP and aerial and naval war gamers were just a blip compared to land on the overall numbers. I would like to know the break out on those aspects myself just for my own interest.

And I play a lot of games with other people's armies/rules where I don't have any plans to collect an army (7YW for example which was not in my top 50 for collecting armies.)

Gracias,

Glenn

Edit:

My votes (not in order) were:

17th Century (colonial Americas)

18th Century (colonial Americas with my figures/rules, other regions with friends minitures/rules)

19th Century (not Napoleonics) primarily VSF/Aeronef for my armies, historically based colonials with friends armies/rules

Post WW2 (aerial I collect, land I play with friends miniatures/rules)

Sci-Fi (which just edged out WW1 aerial only and that's based on more figures/armies as a tie breaker.)

Your top five favorite wargames "periods" to play: Most people that I know game several different historical periods. In fact, it's hard for many people to name their favorite. So I'm allowing you to pick a top five! I know, it's hard, but try to just pick five! After you name your top five, feel free to list a couple near misses.

The use of "period" is clearly a loose term, so I'll try to come up with general conflicts or times that are well defined and cover the majority of mini games.
