It's too much trouble with the learning curve to play it right.

There is always something to learn from a new set. I buy them all.

I used to. I started out in the American Revolution with 1776. I liked them.

Then I bought Complete Brigadier. Then the British ones that had actual black and white photos! And more and more and others. Some I actually played. But it was always a matter of feverishly paging through rules I thought I understood to see if units could countercharge. Not much fun for the players. I usually got my ad hoc rulings wrong. Then I would try a new set.

Within the last few years, I have given up my mad quest for "the perfect set of rules" and have settled on what we know how to play. I now play exclusively Age of Reason where the units are regiments, and The Sword and the Flame when I want a small-battle skirmishy feel. The games have been much improved.
