Thanks for all the suggestions given by Consimers (That should be a word, right?).  We had another student game night the other week and I brought with me a pile of games. (I had just sold a house and had to downsize my collection by getting rid of the duplicate games.)

The most sought after and coveted game?  Can anyone guess? (Keeping in mind that these kids are 15/16 y.o. boys....)   Got it it your mind? I'll hit the return a few times; you just scroll down the page.

As a filler I just have to tell you about one of the parents wondering into the cafeteria to "see what his kids are up to" and flipping out over a copy of Metagaming's "Warp War."  He, too, was once a gamer....  He held the tiny box with such reverence that I gave it to him.

And now the answer:

Yes, that's right, it was AH's Panzerblitz.  Is it the box art? Is it that it has pictures of tanks on the back?    I had some newer games there (brand new, unpunched, etc...), but they "lusted" after the orange and black box. Is that comforting?   Hard to say, but it's interesting to note that what attracted us years ago, still works.
