Are there any left? How about Texas-New Mexico?

A naval game?

The Shenandoah. Two campaigns, '62 with Old Jack, and the '64 campaign from start to finish. That's really the last major campaign that offers the sort of freedom of movement that really works in these games. The Overland campaign is left too, but that one is more limited in maneuver, and I'd rather see the Valley.

I can certainly see one large, or maybe two smaller packages, coming out on the 1864/65 Grant/Lee campaign, loaded with all of the historical clashes and a lot of good "WhatIf" scenarios! HPS cannot come this far without ending it properly!

Overland and Shenandoah sound good. What about Red River?

Overland '64, Petersburg to Appomattox '64 and '65, Shenandoah '62 and '64, Sherman's march to Savannah + march to Bentonville, and Red River Campaign + other smaller battles and campaigns in the region. Will buy them all [8D]

As much as I'd like to see Texas New Mexico I don't think to many others would be interested.

Now, if they would computerize Yaquinto's old Ironclad game I'd definitely go for that.

Add in the expansion -and consider it seconded... I loved that scenario with the Richmond flotilla going for City Point down the James.

I'm actually kind of surprised that they haven't done a naval game using the basic engine that John already has in place.....

I would suggest the following:
1 - Combined Wilderness/Spotsylvania/Yellow Tavern
2 - Petersburg to Appomattox
3 - Shenandoah Campaigns
