I keep fiddling with the Stand At Mortain game--way fun for such a little package. Would rather play this than any reissue of the old Strike Force One (sorry Alan).

Haven't done the Poles Apart game...

Or Showtime: Hanoi game yet....

Which ones do you like?

If you like Stand at Mortain, Eric, make sure you spend some time with my Gazala 1942, the bonus game in the 2008 Annual. I took the basic play mechanics of SaM and applied it to what is probably my favorite WW2 battle. The resulting game is nice and tight, and a lot of fun.
I definitely agree with Chris. He put together a nice game with Gazala Line 1942. I had a lot of fun play testing it.

And to stay on topic, I would have to say that Stand at Mortain is still my favorite of the 3 out so far. Just that WWII theme.

Also, keep in mind that optional rules for these 3 postcard games were released in the current issue (#23) of ATO magazine.
What kind of optional rules? I just renewed my subscription with #24 (bed timing I guess) :)

I haven't played any of them yet, but I got my mounted version of Some Poles Apart with my sub, so I'll be trying that one very soon. I scanned and enlarged the map and rules to fit on a regular sheet of paper. The card just seems so small...
whar do players think about the two newer Post Card Games "Morgan's A'Comin" and the Jubilee special?
