Not definitive, no such thing, and, depending on my mood, I can prefer the designer's other strategic-level games (Napoleonic Wars, Wellington, Kutusov),  but I call it classic without hesitation.


I think that at the time, it was "the" grand-scope end-to-end game though, wasn't it?

...Concerned it didn't make the minimum there and hope the KS gets this done.

I'm gonna help out with that.

I gotta say, those counters look a lot more like Soldier Kings than War & Peace

Yep, backed.

I actually don't really like games.

Insofar as "EiA" is three years younger, yes.

Although, and I feel like I'm running down a game I love, it must again be said that the defects in the GC were found pretty quickly.

KS is just not my thing. I'm glad I backed the WaW 85 kickstarter, but I am not mentally predisposed to waiting 6-8 months to get my game after I paid for it.

Being able to Google shit better than your clients is a legit career skill.

They're great for me. The wife says, "when did you buy that?!?" and I say, "oh, like 6 to 8 months ago!".  :hehe:

Not all different. I also don't do p500s.

My marshal's hat, then, is doffed to your self-restraint.  I have that highly irrational fear of "but, but, what if I don't get one" with things I really want.

And some I only think I want.
