At the moment I am learning John Tillers Campaign Series computer game and I seriously want to have a crack at Hearts of Iron, but I do want to start up a new board game too. Since I play solo, i have to decide myself what to play, and this can be a very long and agonising process....lol.

How do you decide what game to play next, board or computer (assuming it is not a new one, and one from your existing stash), and does anything influence you, like films, documentaries, books etc.

Because the computer game I am playing is based on WW2, I would like to steer away from a WW2 board game, and maybe try Lee vs Grant, or something from WW1. Maybe I should put the name of games in a hat and pick one out...lmao.

I have not tried Vassal or ZunTzu, but both are on my hit list to try. If I were to play against someone, I would need to find a game that I want to play and someone else wants to play too, and that at least one of us has the rules to share!

I might try a small game that I know the rules to and try it solo just to get the hang of the interface on these superb engines

Sometimes I'm motivated by something I'm reading or...a game I'm playing motivates me to read about it. That is for games I'm playing at home. With vassal, I tend to over commit and have too many games going on at the same time.

 

Roger, do you ever do Vassal...or one of the other internet gaming platforms?

Films, like Last Of The Mohecans gets me interested in FIW, so then I look for games about the films

John Tiller’s Battleground Civil War  from http://matrixgames.com/ suprised me how good it is, you get all the games in one bundle. I used graphic icons they look great, plus all the battlefields are hand drawn fantastic

 

boardgames try "The Hunt for Red October" modern naval battles, its my fav. but Im going to get a printer and try DTP games http://cryhavocgames.net/Outlaws.html) , seems to be how games are now,I bought Napolions Last battles , from my local game shop then they stopped selling wargames, just as I was getting interested
