878 - Vikings Invasion of England  - another excellent title from Academy Games.  I will admit that I am not a fan of the miniatures and am seriously considering replacing them with cubes like 1775 and other games in this lineup.

Unconditional Surrender - Reprint category.  Not sure why no mounted board but I hope to drop the $ to buy the upgrade kit.

Holland 44 looks great but have not gotten past reading the rulebook.

Reading rules and watching play through videos occasionally is about all I have time for these days, but I've had the opportunity to play a few games also.

I nominate LnL's A Wing and a Prayer, looks awesome  :bd:

I am not very good at this, I notice I only bought one 2017 game in LnL's Battles on Demand series. I did stock up on some rarities though, and just found Suez'73 for two tenners so order placed it was  :smitten:
