Excellent, thanks for the work involved in setting that up

I'm amazed there's no totalhammer love - the dlc will get you this year

And backpats all round for kyzbp and the witp aar - I'm get a hankering for offering a rematch

I guess people really are reading my Order of Battle AARs and liking what the designers did.  Wow.

Nice work UCG!  I second the lack of Totalhammer love.  I'm not really sure about the rematch.  My family began referring to me as "That guy in the computer room".

Great choices all around.

I am really surprised that neither Airborne Rifles nor Banzai Cat made it into the AAR Top 3.  Those were some of my very favorites.

Digital RPG's are hardly RPG's.

I hope Star Wars: Rebellion didn't win by only one vote.  I haven't played a board game in 10 years plus and chose that one only because I enjoyed the computer game Rebellion back in the 90's.

I doubt it. Seems like half the forum has been play Rebellion.

I just hope you didn't buy it as a solo player game.
