Very good games in their day, all of them, a little bit dated by today standards, but good games, even today.

Have all five of them, AK, Bulge and Stalingrad were played until the components almost fell apart. D-Day 77 just wasn't liked by my group (me included), and NaW was overlooked by newer games.
i would amend my list to d-dday65-have 77 but prefer the 65 rules
Damn brian,only 5 to name.10 would be hard enough but 5!


Might have to make these Series games for each

1.SPI's Napoleon at Waterloo + Expansion(could include Borodino ,Austerlitz,Nap At War,Eylau from The Wargamer)
I played NAP to death when I bought it and still play from time to time

2 Any SPI Quad game/Folio
Still the best Beer & Pretzel games around

3. AH Classics and Jedko games
Great games for a evening or a weekend afternoon.

4. Any game by Victory Point Games

5 Alexander the Great(Guidon/AH)
Just a pure game players game.It also has a great ancients feel to it also
If I can have a number 6 it would be any of the Conflict Games.By Conflict or the Conflict/GDW editions


Kasserine Pass is a classic Beer & Pretzel game for certain.

Overlord,Yalu,Verdun,Fall of Tobruk,Iliad might take londer but they had short rules and played quickly
Original Bar Lev would be in the 2nd group if you didn't add in the air rules

I guess you better add in any GDW 120 Series game for 7th spot.
i wish i knew more aboutKasserine Pass and the gdw 120's ,but yea, what ive heard has been good. i'm glad you mentioned Alexander the Great, will have to get a copy of this-would like a game from this time period. any opinions on guadacanal/AH? not great reviews-would like to hear from somebody who likes it for info. Victory Point @ Conflict Games i know little to nothing will check those out as well.....
updating my list@ combining to cover more era's
1 NAW/WATERLOO
2.AK
3. STALINGRAD
4 PANZERBLITZ
5D-DAY-i think the world is still waiting for the perfectstrategic invasion/western front game...
