No.
I actually remember now what I was thinking when I asked that. I was thinking of something like Heroscape which has fantasy and myth and WW2 all mixed in as opposed to ASL which is purely WW2, hence one 'genre'. Poor question really. :|

It is a wargame.
It is a game in Doug's collection.
It begins with a letter between A-G.
It was published over 2 years ago.
It is strategic in design and not tactical.


Hang on a sec, It is not WW2 and it is not based on something pre WW2 so that means it is post WW2 or not based on anything 'real word'.

Is it set in post WW2 era?

Is it based on a real conflict?

Well, I'm just tracking with my usual analysis and taking the occasional stab in the dark :p

Does its title start with a letter between A-D (inclusive)?

Is it Battleships?

Does its title start with a letter between A-B (inclusive)?

Does it have the word "Battle" in its title?

dougadams answered "Maybe" to "Is it based on WW2?". By that, he might mean that it is not based on WW2 as a world-wide conflict, but based on a specific battle or specific type of battle that happened during WW2.

So, is it based on a specific battle that happened during WW2?

Is it based on a specific type of battle that happened during WW2?
