I should be setting up Omaha with TBFN but instead I'm performing counter errata in the Gamebox.

Comment by Tom Stearns on February 1, 2012 at 9:36pm

ok but how about the old SPI and newer DG title The War Between the States?  That was a large 3-mapper with tons of counters....

I never played WiF but I cringe when I hear people refer to Civil War as a monster game. NOT!

Comment by Tom Stearns on February 1, 2012 at 9:20pm

I think old school WIF may not have fit the bill, but with all the additions including maps and counters, I think it now qualifies.  Never considered The Civil War one.

I like the way this is leaning. Got tired of hearing WiF/Civil War being called a monster.

Then again, WiF's gotten bigger since I played it.

Comment by Tom Stearns on January 24, 2012 at 7:26am

Since standard games come with 1 to 2 maps, anything over 2 is leaning toward monster status.  I'd put the counter count at 1,000+.  Some monsters are bigger than others.  Having the word "monster" in the game alone doesn't make it a monster game.... ;)

How many maps make a monster or is it number of counters?..or both?..I guess player aid coverage would count too...for example does 'Proud Monster Deluxe' classify?

I see lots of Battle for Normandy talk from last year.  I am all over this game at the moment.  Looking for ftf games via vassal. 4-player games with this could be very good.

I'm playing the ultimate monster game. Guderian's Blitzkreig / Case Blue combo. theres 6 of us. We are 15 turns into it so far. playing on vassal with full fog of War. Probably the coolest wargaming experience I've had in my 40+ years of wargaming.

I am looking for any Siege of Jerusalem players...
