I don't think I own any Stalingrad games, which is why I'm happy Simonitch is designing Stalingrad '42.

I don't own any Stalingrad specific games, but 50% of my wargame collection is Cold War and later, and most of the rest is age of gunpowder stuff.


My WW2 inventory, not counting some stray magazine games, are Spearpoint 1943, a couple of LNLT games, Bulge 20, FAB Sicily, the original SL, Tank on Tank, Rommel at Gazala (LNL), and The Pacific War: Pearl Harbor to the Philippines


WW2 just isn't a big area of interest for me.


I had the ATO Berlin game, but sent it to BC a while ago

Don't you have the Carcassonne version - 'Armoured Wheat Gatherers on the Volga'?

Have you got table space though; that's the main question.

Yep, that should do it - its even big enough to get Mirth's new Ardennes game on!

Not wishing to be rude or anything, but............are your arms long enough to reach those pesky counters in the middle of the table?  ::)

I've got the Stalingrad expansion for Tide of Iron.  I think that's the only Stalingrad specific board game I own.
