I have the following games that I can remember, some I have in storage and may have forgotten.

Panzerblitz, Panzerleader, Arab Israeli Wars, Luftwaffe, Battle of the Bulge all by AH

Campaign for North Africa (another monster), Panzerarmee Afrika, NATO, Red Star White Star, Ardennes Offensive, Spitfire, all by SPI

DAK II, Tunisia by MMP

Zitadelle and another two-three dozen games by 3W

So I have everything from the beer and pretzel afternoon games to the long marathon games.

Of the games I own my vote for the best researched would have to be Parkers Hitlers Last Gamble, very enjoyable. Panzerarmee Afrika is very simple, inaccurate but very fun and fast paced.
Thank you Mark. Nice to hear. Not sure how many will be interested, but we plan to reissue Hitler's Last Gamble with all sort of improvements-- all of the nifty historical details to remain, adding an important and simple rating of morale (Napoleon was right to say morale was to the physical as three is to one, but perhaps exaggerated in WWII), and streamlined rules that are well organized. First quality charts and player aids, not to mention an end to that horrid box art!

Those having played the game are welcome to make suggestions while we are making decisions for the next few months.

Thank you Mr. Parker!!! That is great news! I had recently seen a posting on consimworld that you were working on an updated game and I have been very anxious to hear more. I cant wait to get my hands on the new edition when it comes out!!! Where should we be looking for updates or offering our suggestions?

Sincerely

Mark

I am really enjoying the PC game Men of War: Assault Squad 2..https://youtu.be/LPuxDBotyjU
Don't fight a battle if you don't gain anything by winning. :D
