Current Gaps in War Gaming Topics

Post by DonCzirr » Wed Jul 13, 2016 4:30 pm

What areas of interest have not been covered or covered well for you?

For me, I believe the Crimean War needs some attention.

Wide-ranging, with a lot of different land and sea elements - set in a transitional age of warfare ....


I would like to see a strategic "Commander : Crimean War" style game and then also a separate game series of small operational battles on the level of Tiller's First World War / Panzer Campaign series ....


What would you like to see come to digital ?

Vietnam. I want to use Super Sabres to unleash hell on everything.

More good Dark Ages (ie. 476-1066) type stuff would also be good. I would have bought Great Invasions if it didn't have that silly you-command-10-different-nations-nowhere-near-each-other thing.

Good choice on Vietnam.

The only game that I have on that war is John Tiller's Quang Tri 72 on the iPAD - very interesting environment for warfare and some unique challenges for both sides.

I'm also thinking - Stalingrad.

Granted - there's a number of titles out there already and one enterprising fellow in these forums is making a BA 2 mod for it but ....

There is little available to mimic the grim, brutal atmosphere that was portrayed in the book, War of the Rats.

There was one Combat Mission BB scenario years ago that had the building to building fighting, molotovs thrown by militia onto German StuGs, Luftwaffe strafing Soviet troops as they crossed the Volga on ferries ... etc

But since then the BFC guys are going with limited period releases like Red Thunder - so no recent translations exist of the CMBB scenario I mentioned above.

Most definitely a gap ....

1919-1921 Polish-Soviet War is open to numerous interesting scenarios and what-ifs...; hasn't been covered at all, to the best of my knowledge; hoping AGEOD will do it one day...

Good one - I'd take that in Tiller's First World War format or Decisive Campaigns style as well.
