Board Games 1862
Classic, but takes too long for the amount of fun
(Updated: July 28, 2008)
Was my first real WWII game. It's fun, but usually takes way too long to end. It really drags on if the allies start to win. Has really cool bits, which is nice. It was the game that got me interested in more complex games. I haven't played it in forever (and I never feel like playing it) because I have other war games I enjoy more.



The most effective strategies make the game feel scripted, which isn't good. Also, heavy bombers are a bit broken. It's totally random if you get them or not, and they are just SO good, they usually decide the game.
