I'm going to qualify my family's geekdom right now, in a photo
That is my husbands Christmas gift. It's a 6 foot by 3 foot vinyl map for the game Axis & Allies. And yes, I can post that because he's not a regular here.
I'm not going to post a photo of our game closet, because it's a mess. But, along with Axis & Allies we have Battleship, Risk and at least 4 different chess boards.
We LOVE strategic play.
Unfortunately, I did not walk away from ChiTAG with my own Quartermaster General game. In my defense, it was my first year attending and I didn't know that there would be games for sale. (Noted for next year, though).
But, we chatted with the Griggling Games guys for quite a bit. Specifically about Quartermaster General.
The good -
- Easy, quick play with minimal set up and pieces.
- 2-6 players, with a game length of about 120 minutes, tops
- Awesome illustrated cards with amazing factual tidbits.
The bad -
- For me, price. At $49.95 for the game, that's a hefty price tag for a board game. BUT, if I view it as an investment it's not that bad. It's just something that I have to save up for.
The details -

Given that we are fans of these types of games, this is really a no brainer to me as far as future purchase goes.
I also think that because this game is card driven and re-playable, it's a good first choice instead of something like Axis & Allies. The quick set up helps greatly as well.
