  •  NERDS!!! (0+ / 0-)

    Just kidding. Nerds are great, I'm a nerd too.

    But luckily I'm a nerd who has computers. If I wanted to play any of those games you're describing it would take about a minute to load on a computer :)

    The joy of technology.

      there is something about spreading out that hardcopy board and moving the units around that has a special charm, like reading a physical book rather than reading the same text on the computer.  Also, the board games allow you to see all the systems that set up the simulation, including rules and charts, which unlock the "magic" of the system.
