I believe I first read about it here on the Itinerant Gamer and then here on Tabletop Diversions.
I don't believe I'll bother with posting it to Board Game Geek, or worry about getting 100 games in over the next five months, but just try to select games that I want to play and play them. So while I was lying down and trying not to have a back spasm, I came up with the following list:
- Battle Cry
- Death Angel
- Roman Seas
- Armor Grid
- Warhammer Fantasy Battle 3rd Ed.
- Squad Leader
- King Maker
Table top games:
X-Wing, Machinas, WFB 3rd Ed, and Swordplay all fall into this. Roman Seas and Armor Grid could also fall into this category or be their own category since they are both print and play.
Although Kingmaker and Squad Leader are what I would call "War Games" they are from the subset of games that were played on solid game boards with cardboard chits. As opposed to other games that had folded paper maps. Battle Cry has more of a parlor game feel to it, like Risk but is still fairly nuanced.
Death Angel was, surprisingly, the only card game on the list. We have played a fair amount of Munchkin around the house, so that may be why I didn't think to include it.
So I'm hoping to play some new games and break out some old ones that haven't seen the light of day in a long time.
And if you think to try this out for yourself, let me know how it goes.
I'll try to get the ball rolling this week.
