^thanks for the suggestion, phantom. In fact, I have considered board games. Just this week I posted a question in the tabletop wargaming forum about Twilight Imperium 4th edition. The biggest problem with board games for me is a lack of willing players. There really are no other gamers in my life or social circles. Itís a big limiting factor. :(

Space empires looks like a nice solo option, but might be a bit dry for me...itís affordable though, so maybe Iíll take a closer look.

Also consider playing Space Empire IV Deluxe solo (hotseat) if you have it.

Got it. Although it has many details and options lacking in other games...it always struck me as ďhollowĒ or soulless, if that makes sense. It never grabbed me.

Jh - have you looked for a club locally?

No one is more antisocial than me and my biggest dread was finding a room full of nerds - the no other life type ones - but it turns out it's a room full of like minded people, they go to work, and come and play games afterwards

We started work on a new scenario about the Russo-Japanese War. Events will take place in a remote and now forgotten theater of military operations on Sakhalin, the Kuril Islands and Kamchatka in 1904.

I watched the spelk posted video...very intriguing game.  Is it turn based, and if so how many years is a turn?

It advances in pulses of time, as little as 5 seconds to as much as 30 days. You can advance time manually, or in auto pulses which will stop upon the occurrence of an event.

Jarhead, have you looked at Endless Space 2?

Yup. Got it. Very interesting and sharp looking game, but still not the ultimate.

I dunno about this one. I'm also keeping an eye on it.

regarding CM, guess there expecting a lot of releases this year

Wishful thinking: I really wish we'd see a game engine upgrade. Same engine since Shock Force, but with some polish on it. Wish we had something that was capable of handling physics and larger scale maps much better.
