Recently got back to a weekly (more or less) game night at my house having gotten my game room partially put back together after 'an incident'  :-)

We played the original AH We The People by Mark Herman for our first game.  I was the rebels.  We both thought the Redcoats were cruising to a strong victory, until the war ended and we added up the provinces - suddenly the rebels had pulled out a victory.  It was a great fast playing game to get us back in the habit.

The next week we played the AH Napoleon black game in the gray box.  This time I was the French aggressor.  I drove up the left flank, and running out of time brought a combined Brit/Prussian force to battle.  Both of us wee able to add reinforcements for about three turns and it became a great grinding away of forces.  The center was a large artiellery duel, with an infantry slugfest on my left flank and cavalry skirmish on the right flank.  Eventually the Brit's killed enough french for victory (I had taken a few losses in a diversionary attack gone bad earlier in the game...)  Another fast playing game!!  

We think up next is GMT Reds - then maybe some ASL!!

Played: AH's "Civilization" with 5 players. Never played this game before. A great game, will have to play it again.

My latest game was a GHQ: Modern miniatures game, some middle east action.

I'm trying to get some friends to play the game as regularly as possible, so far  they like the game. 

Played: Flying Pigs game "'65". A tac game on Vietnam but with cards. It is OK as a game but had trouble drawing the "right" cards as in Poker. The system did not "grab me".

"Summit" by Hasbro. A cold war game capable of playing up to 6 players. It is fairly quick and lots of fun, surprisingly.

Played: "An Infamous Traffic" by Hollandspiele. A game on the opium smuggling by the Brits and others into Manchu China. It is a economic game for up to 5 players who try to get rich. Unusual system that is not always clear. Had 5 players and half were not to "into" this system, me included. Some did like it.

"Battle for Germany" by SPI. A classic game and lots of fun. We played the 3 player version. A close game where the Soviets won but only by 2 points and the German player almost held Berlin for a win.

Played: "Vietnam 1965-1975" by Victory Games. Played the Tet Scenario. Took a long time but commies won. Interesting system but too much depth.
