John Tiller Software sale from July 1-15

This either will be (or should) front page news. Listed on the home page of JTS software so it's real. ALL titles except those released in the last 12 months are $29.95 No limit and you can keep going back to the trough. I plan on picking up a few Napoleonic titles since those will be upgraded to re...

Re: <t>Upcoming War Games 2020</t>

Count me in for Second Front, Grand Tactitian and Campaign series: Vietnam. Sadly, Panzer Corps leaves me cold- - I just don’t like tactically discernible models being portrayed on a strategic scale. Every time I pick up PC, I play part way through one scenario and think ‘nah, just can’t do this’. N...

Re: <t>The Best Ancients & Medieval War Games</t>

Pretty much hit the nail on the head. Field of Glory iI shows just how good a tabletop > computer game can be made. And I really want to like the HPS games but....those graphics are ungood.

Re: <t>The Best American Civil War Strategy Games</t>

ElCJoe - no problem. Just a wee case in point, Camapign Shenandoah was released about 6 weeks ago, more than a year after the original article. Back in 1985 one of my buddies had a real fixation with Squad Leader. He kept buying the game over and over again, made his own maps and set up a ping pong ...

Re: <t>The Best American Civil War Strategy Games</t>

This is recycled article, and what bothers me is this blurb near the bottom regarding the John Tiller ACW games and are considered pretty good ACW war games for what they are. Given that it’s been more than a year since you posted the original article and that ALL JTS ACW games have been updated I t...

Re: <t>We don't think we can wait till July for Thrustmaster's new F/A-18C Hornet Flight Stick</t>

Splunge. Originating from a Monty python, splunge is a way of saying that you have no worthy opinion and that an idea could or could not be good. It could also be a quick comeback if you do not have an answer for a question. Well, I don't play Sims or pretty much any first person game w/the exceptio...

Re: <t>Review: Japan ‘45</t>

This is a game I intend to pick up. Never thought I'd ever say this, but even with all the time in the world there are just too many good games for Tom to reasonably play w/o cutting into sleep. I jump back and forth between games, usually playing 1 o2 2 titles until something else shiny captures my...

Re: OMG: Panzer Corps 2

I've been aware of this for a while. I bought Panzer Corps 2 and all expansions/DLC when it was on sale and just.....never really liked it that much (at all actually). I'm not sure why; just that games such as The Operational Art of War IV, various Panzer Campaigns/Battles by Tiller software are mor...
