This is a great Topic... went on and on for 2 years! Looking back... how much we learned to read the "signs" of the next upcoming games.

D-Day...
then... Battle of the Bulge...
now... Guadalcanal...

and next...? Stalingrad? Alamein?...

One follow up in the pacific series might be Leyte Gulf but until that one, whats to come first?

If Stalingrad, what can we expect? A substitute fot russian artillery is a "must" I suppose...Katyusha? Probably a new halftrack piece. This game would envolve supplies and transportation. Italian or Romanian units I dont think so, they were much coordinated by German forces so no need for that.

If Alamein, logistics also present and new Italian units are a must. The halftrack can make its appearence as well. The british tank must change to something more correct... Matilda or Churchill maybe.

For me a North African Campaign would be my vote. Italian pieces and great strategy and logistic issues. Who doesn't want to command the Afrika Korps or beat them back as the Desert Rats?

...how about a Meditarrian Game, includes North Africa, Malta, Gibraltar, Sicly and Southern Italy; Nustro Mar for sea and air action. Bypass Greece as being the end of the Balkans (we'll skip with the Italians on the verge of being defeated in N. Africa, Churchill sent the army onto a adventure in Greece and Crete).

Also bypass the Allied invasion of Southern France. Thanks, Pellulo

PS The timeline would be from 1939-1943.

I would like a med game. That would be good. We could have Italy winning by getting X victory points. These would come from distroying Brittish Battleship, capturing important cities such as Ciro and, of corse, oil felids.

England has to hold them off for X turns.

Of course you can look at the flip side of things, quantity of games DOES NOT mean quality(rather see a good game every other year, than mediocre one every six months ), thanks, Pellulo
