A very interesting and quick playing Waterloo simulation arrived in the mail the other day. This is from an outfit in Finland, U&P Games, and comes highly recommended by Phil Sabin. Besides looking rather pretty, the game ships to Japan for a very reasonable price.
(Edit, see here for a review of the game by Steven M on his blog).
And while we're talking boardgames, I've just finished prepping a solitaire print-and-play game called "Roman Conqueror" from Berserker Games. It took quite a while to do; I put the counters (and there is a decent number!) onto the cardboard I use for my miniatures bases. Next time I think I'll follow the designer's instructions instead of trying to produce materials fit to survive a nuclear war!
Anyway, more on these in due course.
