    Yeah, Dean Essig's stuff all seems pretty awesome. I'm starting with OCS as I understand it has the most refined rule set out of GTS, BCS and OCS. Tunisia 2 and Sicily are on their way, and we have plans to try and get DAK 2 to a (very big) table mid next year.

    The Greatest Day, covers the first week following the D-Day landings in the British and Canadian beaches, just playing through some of the scenarios now. Superb stuff. I've played OCS, TCS and SCS. OCS is my favourite out of the 3, followed by SCS and TCS is a distant third.

    OCS is fun,

    I have played and own Hube's Pocket, Baltic Gap, Tunisia II & Sicilly II, I must also get hold of 'The Greatest Day' (GTS) it is a MUST buy I feel from what I have heard.

    Iam just starting my first SCS game...


    I also have GD-42 (TCS), and The Mighty Endeavor (SCS) on the shelf. Tunisia II (OCS) is on my list and overall I like the systems that MMP put out. I would also like to get/try one of the two BCS system games. Someone mentioned "Downtown", I have Elusive Victory which I love, and one of the GMT´s "Next War" will end up on my shelf too.

    I recently picked up on BGG Avalon Hill´s "Firepower" and West End Games "West Front Tank Leader", both have neat systems, I have a urge to try out for Firepower! Another fav is Avalons 1st. edition MBT and Tac-Air.

    I think I like all my games, and future ones too :)

    We are just getting into the Next War series. We started with India Pakistan and have so far played 4 scenarios, well, the first 2 scenarios twice, in reality. Neat system, particularly the built up area clearing rule. We used the optional supply rules to add a little bit more tension and to make us really think about how and where we moved. I thin the game will really come into its own with the advanced rules, but one step at a time for now.

    Had a major splurge on eBay over Christmas following the news that I wasn't losing my job after all :)

    MMP- A Victory Lost, A Victory Denied
    Legion Games- Demyansk Shield

    Except for the Decision games pair all are unpunched :)

    Cheers
