Red Storm air war Central Europe 1987. Complex game, builds on Downtown and Elusive Victory. Lots of detail, lots of air to air.

Not for novice wargamers even Grognards will need a grounding in modern air warfare principles before attempting this one. Precise, technical and strangely addictive.

As ever the VASSAL module makes online play less admin heavy than a face to face game. Game crafter has an excellent set of cards available for the planes and SAMS that eases the chart flipping extravaganza that is part and parcel of the game.

Warming up for a game of Bitter End, Budapest Compass games. Played a couple of turns to get back into the mechanics. The real game starts next week. A hidden gem of a game that highlights the problems and challenges faced by both sides during the siege and relief attempts.

Undaunted Normandy. Had my first victory today against my 11 year old son in eight or nine playings so far, he's annoyingly tactically astute :D. We can't wait for Undaunted North Africa to arrive.

Aeon’s End Legacy

Been playing a lot of co-op games with my son as my regular groups of 4-5 players are out due to Covid. Really enjoy the talking strategy with him. Co-ops I’ve gotten off the shelf or next in line after we finish Aeon’s End Legacy.
