Late last year, after wrapping up work on Fall Blau, I dove into the Ardennes... I posted my Iron Tide AAR over in its folder. Then I tried Bastogne or Bust and wasn't impressed. I know Ardennes '44 is good... played it when it came out with Mark S. himself. Gamers' Ardennes is too German biased if you give them time to plan their moves. A few years ago I tried DBW... not impressed by the gamey feel. So, still my favorite Bulge game is Iron Tide. :-)
Greg, I haven't played Iron Tide. I have Ardennes (The Gamers) also. Used to be my favorite. After getting heavily into Wacht am Rhein 2 last year I began reading more about the campaign. Things about Ardennes started to bother me and I realized, though it may be a good game, it wasn't very accurate. I really like WaR2, but it is a monster and continues to be in perpetual development. It will definetly get pulled out again. Ardennes'44 just seems to be the best combination of playability and accuracy. Besides I like Mark S's zoc system.
You've played A44 a couple of times since January. What do you think of it now?
I'm priming up to play TiTM solo using CB. I like TiTM for a game.
