I still like CEAW as a favourite. Still has a few flaws but still challenging.

I know this is not what you meant, but Gary Grigsby's War In The East was new to me in 2014. Does that Count?

Massive game that I fully expect to last me years. It's a lot to learn but I've found that games that you learn quickly tend not to be very enduring. I can fully recommend it to anyone who likes HUGE hex war games. And have patience.

In a burst of over confidence I also bought War In The West as it was on sale and Slitherine gave me an extra 21% discount. Nice one Slitherine! Too good to miss.

I have to mention the sad loss of David Bowie, he was a genuine talent.

The best for me it's probabily Commander: Modern Air/Naval Operation (C:MANO). September 2014. It's a Worth successor of Harpoon. If you like modern naval warfare, it's a must.
Also War in the West and Operaton Torch expansion (late 2014 and mid 2015). I am not a big fan of Western Front but it's a very good wargame. The expansion offers some Norther Africa scenarios, very interesting.

Bye.

I've spent a large portion of recent months on Civ 4 (yeah, I realise it's old and not Slitherine-made).

Other than that Order of Battle. For some reason I still haven't finished the US campaign yet :oops: (maybe because there is another, more distracting one)

Undoubtedly Order of Battle: Pacific for me. As I've already written some time ago Aritstocrat's work should be taken as an example for most of wargamer dev studios in my opinion. :)

What came out in 2015? I have so many games I can't keep up with when they were released.

I definitely didn't play many new games this year, but the one that stood out for me was Churchill

Let's see.

Late 2014:
Warhammer 40,000: Armageddon - I finished the original campaign. Enjoyed It at first, got bored in the end. (Campaign starts as really challenging, then you get spacemarine equipment and the challenge ends)
Ultimate General: Gettysburg - Great game. Finished the campaign for both sides and got historical results. Good AI, great variety of strategical and tactical decisions.

2015:
Pike and Shot: Campaigns - Great wargame. Really good AI, many historical scenarios and Campaigns. Now I'm playing Great Turkish War Campaign as Ottomans - so much fun.
Ravenmark: Scourge of Estellion - good fantasy wargame. WeGo rules. Interesting story.
Spirit of War - nice little WWI wargame. Nothing special.
Warhammer Quest - TBS fantasy warhammer. Dungeons, monsters, nothing special.
Invisible, Inc. - very good, really challenging TBS. Cyberpunk style.

So, favorite - Ultimate General: Gettysburg OR Pike and Shot: Campaigns.
Make love, not war.

Churchill- cool game, but it is not a wargame. three player excursion into power politics: a political conflict of cooperation and competition.

So far - (guess 2016 could be considered now too):

Commander: Modern Air/Naval Operation (C:MANO) - even a Modern Warfare novice (like me) can pick this up and have fun with it - but is challenging enough to be very interesting and educational.

Pike and Shot - The whole feel of the game is great. I slow the animations down to the slowest levels and enjoy the atmosphere. I love trying to plan a strategy where I must also factor in blood thirsty commanders who will ignore / disobey orders - forcing me to counter and attempt to leverage such situations in a dynamic way ....

Good games there ...

Even though the spotting rules are off-base - HOS earns massive points for having the sensitive Wehrmacht save little girls from the Red Horde ;)
