You have 5 Arab nations (Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Jordan, and Egypt) with their own separate 4-space tracks leading to Jerusalem. The game begins with the counter for each nation on the furthest track. Each turn, you draw one card from an event deck. That card will tell you which counter(s) to advance or retreat. If a counter ever reaches Jerusalem, you lose. The card then tells you the number of offensive actions you can take, along with any die roll modifiers. An offensive action is simply selecting one of the counters and rolling a die. If you roll an adjusted number greater than the number printed on the counter, you get to push it back one space. Keep drawing cards until you either lose (a counter advances to Jerusalem), or until the deck runs out. You win the game if you go through the entire deck.

Although extremely simple, this game is more addicting than eating potato chips. I even placed an order for Levee en Masse.
I've looked at this series as well. I may try this one once my self-imposed game embargo is over.
I've never been a historical wargamer, as I much prefer fantasy/sci-fi settings, but I'll vouch for Victory Point Games. I thoroughly enjoy Legions of Darkness, which is their fantasy-themed State of Siege game.

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

Well, you'd know better than I, for sure. The people who I know observing Lent have given up sweets, or just soda, and that sort of thing. I do know one lady who claimed to give up her New Year's Resolution ("Be a better person"), but I think that was a joke.

How dare you. These types of war game are my Achilles' Heel because they are so dang hard to find, solitare or not; most of them are too complex for my tastes. Now that I have seen this, I want it really bad, but I have no money!


EDIT: $15+5 with the expansion? Hmm.... I will be picking that up sometime, so I'll bookmark the site. But I've got to pay off this new laptop first...

So..., anyone interested in a Chromebook? It's for sale! PM me for details.

EDIT 2: O_O There's a Trench Warfare 2-player on the site,

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

This weekend I picked up the last 3 Force Packs I needed in the Hoth cycle for Star Wars LCG. I tinkered around and built a deck for each of the 4 main factions. Today I got to actually play them. We only played a best 2 out of 3 with me on the lightside. I picked my Rebel deck that was focused on Hoth objectives and cheap speeder/fighter vehicles. Darkside drops Vader turn 1. This was a serious uphill battle that came down to the very last turn. The sith have TONS of removal which was making it very hard to keep anything out. Surprisingly though I was able to come with enough damage to seal my victory the turn before the Deathstar reached 12. The next game was another struggle that ended with Darkside winning. Our last game was very quick. He got out the Executor along with Palpatine and had every bit of removal he needed. I had a plan and thought Id be able to pull it off but Palpatine really changed how the rest of the game played out. Once all your units are focused and your facing down an unopposed Palpatine its very difficult to get back in game, especially if theres any Protect characters in play. We are really enjoying this game!! Cant wait to try out the newest Force Pack. From what Ive read the new cycle really changes how the Force struggle plays out.

Oh also I hope we get an official announcement soon but saw this on cool stuff:

Legendary: Villains
Description:
Expected Release: June 25, 2014. Date subject to change.

The Legendary universe gets flipped upside down! Play as Villains trying to take out the Heroes protecting the city!

15 playable Villains! 7 Hero groups! 4 Head Honchos! 4 Bodyguards! 8 new Schemes! New Agent, Trooper and Officer cards! New unique Bystanders!

The game will feature some of Marvel's greatest Villains, including Venom, Magneto and Thanos, as they go to battle against some of the most heroic characters in the Marvel Universe, including the X-Men, the Avengers and Spider-Friends!

Each Core Set comes with 500 playable cards featuring all original art

Peace is a lie, there is only passion. Through passion, I gain strength. Through strength, I gain power. Through power, I gain victory. Through victory, my chains are broken. The Force shall free me.

You and me both! But you've seen my collection of old Avalon Hill games.
I got rid of my games back during the Purge of 199x when I realized I would never get any play out of them. What I never considered back then was that playing solo can be quite fun.

The one game I played the most because other folks found it fun was Gladiator. I also enjoyed Air Force, Flight Leader, and the first two scenarios of Squad Leader (never made it to the armor rules). And Tactics II was the game that served as the gateway for me, and that was fun to play as well.

And I loved the solitaire B-17. To show you how pathetic I can be, I'd staff the bomber with girls I had a crush on over the years. Then I'd watch them die in numerous ways, which is pretty indicative of my love life. Ok, TMI...

@chas: I do consider Memoir 44 an introductory wargame. One of these days, I should write an apologia and post it to the Geek explaining why I think some of the criticisms (esp. the "I have no cards!" complaint) fail to consider aspects where the design actually makes more sense than folks realize.

Did you see those counters for Trenches of Valor? They have the ranged die results printed on the counters! Awwww, that's so cuuuuute! I haven't played it.

And I gave D-Day another go and tried to incorporate more close combat. That worked much better for the Canadians, but they still lost 3-9.

I'm trying to get rid of 5 things a day. Call it giving up hoarding.

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

Nah, just things in general. Could be as small as a piece of paper (though when going through pieces of paper, I've never stopped at five). I'm hoping to move in December, so I want to condense as much as I can.

Haven't gotten rid of any games yet, though!

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

Right now it's looking like Montgomery, Alabama. Still a bit up in the air, though.
