All of a sudden I have a nice GMT Games Collection
As I’ve said before, 2012 was an interesting year of game purchasing for me.
Through normal collecting, auctions, gifts, and other methods I ended up with a lot. In particular, I now have what I consider to be a nice collection of GMT games. Slowly, GMT has grown into my favorite publisher. They put out quality product as most anyone knows. I shudder to think what my other favorite publishers like Academy Games could do if they had GMT’s weight in the marketplace.
My 2012 GMT purchases are highlighted by Bloody April, perhaps my favoirte wargame of all time(!). It has received a tone of play this year and I hope that only continues.
That contrats with my expericne with Andean Abyss. I had very high hopes for this one and even received it the same day as Bloody April via a P500 delivery. However, my experience with it has left a lot to be desired. I don’t blame the game so much (yet). It is just that every multi-player VASSAL game of it that I get into seems to break down from unresponsive players. I guess I need to try the solo variant or find some FtF players.
Most of my other GMT games are yet to be played (Red Winter, Downtown, Elusive Victory) or have taken a backseat to other games but are still great in their own right (Twilight Struggle, Labyrinth).
Either way, GMT games will alwyas have a place at my table and on my shelf.
