Design never happens in a bubble, so I thought it might be illustrative to share a few of the miniatures games that I've played a lot.
Some will probably not be surprises at all.
I am using "A lot" to mean "10 or more games". There's a lot of systems we played 3-5 times and would play again, but they never became standard.
So if there's really obvious omissions on the list (like Chain of Command) that's why :-)
I am also omitting anything I wrote myself. That'd be kind of self-serving wouldn't it?
Warhammer 40.000 (principally RT, 2nd, 3rd and 8th)
Warzone (1st and 2nd edition)
Battletech (I'll count it as a mini's game)
5150 (original version)
Nuts (original and 2nd edition, mostly the original)
Command Decision (1 and 3)
Red Poppy White Feather
Face of Battle (ww2)

There, that's about it I think.
If we were including games that we played 5 times or more the list would be enormously long, so we won't be doing that.
Any surprises on the list?
What would yours look like? Go ahead and share it below.
