GMT Posts List of Best Sellers

GMT games has put up a list of it's all-time 15 best selling games.  It's pretty interesting!

One thing to notice is that 3 non-war games (Battle Line, Formula Motor Racing, and Ivanhoe) made the list (I've not tried any of them, unfortunately).  Also, one expansion is on there: C&C Ancients Expansion #1 (also, never tried it).

Despite the fact I love wargames, I have played VERY few of these.  Twilight Struggle I've played, and love.  Combat Commander: Europe is something I've also played and enjoyed (some battle reports are posted on this blog, even).  SPQR and Great Battles of Alexander are games I own, and would love to play, but haven't had the opportunity.

Sadly, that's all.  Despite GMT's popularity, there are so many of their most popular games I've not even tried, nor own.  It's a shame, really.  Something to work on fixing over the upcoming years, no doubt.

There's also a list of their best sellers for the current year.

Upcoming...

So yeah, I know, I've been neglectful.

Like all my other blogs, I just haven't had time for this, which is unfortunate, since board wargames are a major love of mine.  But, given that I'm making the effort for all of my blogs, I'm going to extend the same effort here, and try to (slowly) get it moving again.

To start, I'm hoping to have an unboxing of Collins Epic Wargames' new product, Spearpoint 1943: Village and Defensive Line Map Expansion, followed by a review of the actual product, once I get it on the table and try it out.

I also have read a few great military history books, for which I'll attempt to get some reviews up here.

After that, I have some ideas of articles to add, so with luck, you'll finally start seeing some posts from me.

I'm also really back into miniature gaming- for posts on that, head over to my blog, Boisterous Exuberance.
