Age of Rifles which I still have and still play. Then 'twas Steel Panthers and Steel Panthers 2. Those are the games which led me to hack oobs and do scenarios.

I think the first one that I bought was Avalon Hill's Gulf Strike in 1984, but it never ran properly. About 10 years later I purchased SSI's Panzer General and played until my last computer running DOS went down.

There was "the perfect general" which was a simplistic hex-based wargame that played well against the AI, and was even better when I hooked up my Atari ST to my friend's Amiga via a serial cable. Wiki says that was 1991 my how time flies!.

Apparently still available - http://killerbeesoftware.com/kbsgames/pgnew/

Something to download and try again!

I remember going to a local store for a decade, seeing the box of the perfect general (and the sequel) and never buying it because....reasons?
It never made any sense why I didn't pick it up.
I kick myself for it.

[quote=Mobhack;836507]Midway on the TRS-80 in '81 or so, Hunt the Bismark, plus B-1 bomber as well and also some sort of combined hex-sheet wargame that used manually shifted counters instead of a computer map (a sort of panzerblitz clone). All by Avalon Hill I think. may have been '82, it was just before and alongside when the Falklands war was happening. QUOTE]

I had the same history. I can't think of the name of the WWII tank game that used the hex board though. I remember I was a beta tester for Avalon Hill then for some of their later games (VC was one I recall). It's a long time since then, and what advances in gaming!

I guess this is why I like this game so much. I played to many solitaire games of Squad Leader!
