computerwargames: A place to discuss PC/Mac/Console/Mobile Wargames without miniatures
A computer based wargaming community for the appreciation of historical wargames. The miniatures are virtual, rulesets/opponents are often handled by the AI! Touching history with digital Hex and chits.
I absolutely love Pike and Shot, but even though the game mechanics are really cool, I was wondering if there's anything in ng out there with a little more substance in regard to campaigns.
The individual battles are great, but there's not much going on outside of them.
Gog.com has just added Panzer Corp, Fields of Glory 2 and the Order of Battle series to their store. The games and all their DLC are also currently on sale. Finally picked up some of my missing DLC's.
Wargames are best enjoyed with a thinking opponent. Interested in finding an opponent for your newest game interest? Post a thread here with the particulars! Be sure to include the name of the game in bold, wether your looking for PBEM or Live, and your timezone offset if live.

Still learning but wow what a deep complex game. Any other similar games that anyone can recommend? New to the genre but I am hooked.
