Panzer Gruppe Guderian- i understand this game has a stellar reputation. i know about the russian untried units and that the game concerns the 41' battle of smolensk (a under represented action in all mediums,not just games).but could someone tell me why it's so great-it's in my top 5 to get at all times so i'm "sold". just interested in what warrants the "glow"....

Brian, the Six Angles Desert Fox Edition have a very nice countersheet, very nice maps, and probably a very nice rulebook and articles, its quality is impressive, BUT, its all in Japanese :( So, IMHO, maps and counters from Six Angles and rules from SPI is the best combination for a Desert Fox game.

The Legend Begins is on my radar, too, but there are so many games I want that I don't know when/if it will be purchased.

my other top games on my radar to get are The Last Days of the Grande Armee, The Emperor Returns, The Legend Begins.....

For a tactical game, purely hex and counter, I'm now playing ATS (have many modules) - IMHO a very good game, have 10 modules of ASL (haven't played it in years) - IMHO a very good game, too, and am about to try Lock 'n Load - Heroes of the Blitzkrieg - Looks very good, but can't really say. A good choice, specially for those with a low budget, is Valor & Victory (free game).

For CDG, I have but still didn't played CC:Europe & Mediterranean, Frontline D-Day and am going to buy Frontline General: Spearpoint 1943.

For North Africa, I have to agree with Bill, the old SPI Desert Fox, with the counters of the Six Angles Edition. I have Afrika II but haven't played it although it seems a very good game. Lets not forget AH Afrika Korps, a light game, but still a good game.
