Can't remember a time I didn't play these games. The earliest memories include plane-to-plane combat in Richthofen's War as well as ship-to-ship combat in Wooden Ships and Iron Men - both usually over lunch while in school. Over time played quite a few AH and SPI games and still remember fondly "The Guards Counterattack" as the first scenario in the original Squad Leader. Left ASL when it became oppressive and unwieldy and left gaming for a time as well. Playing the first scenario of Combat Commander when it was released brought back those fond memories of "The Guards Counterattack" is a very manageable package.

Combat Commander System (Europe, Mediterranean, Pacific)
Street Soccer (nice mix of luck and skill with a nice theme around it)
