  1. You missed «Heroes of the Great War – Limanowa 1914» (http://HeroesOfTheGreatWar.com/en/, http://www.facebook.com/HeroesOfTheGreatWar/) by Gladiator Games (http://GladiatorGamesLtd.com).

    It is a game about a decisive battle on the Eastern Front of World War I, where no trenches brought the advancement to a stalemate. This allows for flanking manoeuvres and other sly tactics to outwit your opponent. In fact, it were the Hungarian Hussars, who in their red and blue uniforms … well, maybe I should not reveal spoilers here.

    The game can be played in three modes:
    – solo against the game system (AI)
    – competitively against 2-4 players.
    – cooperatively, i.e. 1-4 friends against the game system (AI).

    Game materials in four languages have already been confirmed, to unlock Estonian, Polish and Spanish there are some 40 guys missing, which should be feasible over the next two weeks, bringing the total to 6 or 7 languages.

    I am not associated with Gladiator Games and do not receive any form of compensation, but this well-produced title has received a lot of positive reviews (see http://BoardGameGeek.com/boardgame/210417/Heroes-Great-War-Limanowa-1914) and taking a look at it cannot hurt:
