After looking over all the posts I find that my old friend, the "Grand Dame" of WWII, WRG 1925-1950, seems oddly absent from discussion. Do any of you play WRG?

In a word, no. Too clunky by my standards, other systems are a better simulation (the way I view more modern games). IIRC it was designed to play "points" games with army lists. I am a scenario player, give my organizations and missions.

Again,IIRC, Tank Charts played beter and faster.

WRG 6 & 7 ancients. Plus DBA, DBM, and DBR. Not the WW2. What do you think of it?

"Do any of you play WRG?"

Not for 25 years or more. Only played the modern versions not the WW2 version.

WRG 6th

Loved 6th. Hated everything since.

Love Gush's rules! Best rules ever written - period! :-)

Certainly used to. At one time used to compete in tournaments. I now mainly play skirmish though.

How did the ancients variants get into this WWII discussion? Lack of reading comprehension (see below)?

Anyway, regarding the question of whether anybody plays WRG 1925-1950, yes I do occasionally. They are an excellent set.

But WARNING (should be on the packet, kids): you need to be able to read and comprehend more than 10 pages of rules in smallish font with no pictures to distract you... :o)

Nope, I've never played WRG in any variant. This is honestly the first I've heard it referenced to WWII. I thought it was solely an Ancients set.

I have been miniature gaming since the mid 80's but didn't start into WWII gaming until around '97 or '98. I've tried Battleground, Spearhead, Command Decision, and FoW since then. I own a few other sets like Crossfire and Face of Battle. I'm more of a skirmish player, like 28mm, prefer scenarios and I'm working on my own rules.
