Thought it would be nice to share any stories of games folks received over the Holiday season. Whether you treated yourself or bought from a loved one, share your story with us. I'll kick things off by stating I received one game this year to help bring our kids together for the holiday -- Ticket to Ride. Yup, not a consim title, per se, but something the kids really enjoyed. 

What new games are you now enjoying at your home? And are you getting any extra gaming time in as well?

GMT's "No Retreat: the Eastern Front".  I was delighted by Marco's review of his Top 10 for 2011 and this game hit his #1.  Also, GMT's "Nightfighter" , Combat Commander: Resistance, and a terrific oldie: Lee vs Grant.

Paradox Games Victoria II which I hope is something along the lines of Pax Britannica for the pc, and Philip Sabin's book Lost Battles, which contains some rules for ancients battles that he used for the book. I might spend some money I was giving on some software titles from HPS sims or John Tiller.

I did pretty well.  I got three from LnL Press: Blood and Bridges, Operation Garbo, and Heroes of the Gap, along with a Blood & Steel folio, Ponyri, from L2, and the S&T with Shiloh.  Finally, and not to be discounted at all, my girlfriend gave me a bottle of Pusser's Royal Navy rum.

For Christmas, between the two of us, Chad and I received Fortune & Glory, War of the Ring (2nd ed), Merkatur, Troyes, World Without End, Discworld, and Bios Megafauna and then Eclipse, High Frontier and Puerto Rico (Anniv ed) are all on their way, as well.

And my stack of reading material has also grown! I received Beevor's "D-Day: The Battle for Normandy", Timothy Snyder's "Bloodlands: Europe Between Hitler and Stalin" and China Mieville's "Iron Council" (a little lighter non-history reading). And Battles #7 showed up on Saturday. Apparently Santa thought I was VERY good this year!  :0)

I pre ordered Twilight Struggle from GMT many many months ago. My wife intercepted the package when GMT sent out the new Deluxe version. I guess pre-senility has its advantages! I didn't remember ordering the game, so it was a big surprise when I opened it up on Christmas Day!

OK, twas the season of military sim in my household. I (er, I mean my wife) took advantage of the MultiMan Black Friday sale and completed my collection of ASL modules and Action Packs. I also recieved the book and game version of They Shall Not Pass by Avalanche Press. I love the idea of a book and game together and can't wait to share with my sons.

I also got my 11 year old the Alsace 1945 by Avalanche Press so he would stop abusing my games. I have come to realize that though we are beginning his own game collection now, I STILL have to "share" my games with him.

Finally I went nostalgic and ordered the Strike Force One game from VPG. This was the game I learned wargaming on. I certainly have passed this by in my gaming complexity retention but could not resist having this title (and the expansion) in my library. I am thinking old gamers just keep going back to what they remember fondly (i.e Kharkov seems to be popular this week).

Happy holidays to all, and to all much gaming.
