World at War: A World Divided - the best grand-strategy simulation game I've ever played
http://www.matrixgames.com/products/330/details/Gary.Grigsby %27s.World.at.War:.A.World.Divided

Also, check out "1848" - a simple and fun game about the Hungarian Revolution

Rise of Nations is a nice one, too...

And many others...(including boardgames)

Wow! it's great to see so many of the games I enjoy being enjoyed by others as well. (It must mean I have good taste!!! Very Happy Very Happy )
I really enjoy Catan, Carcassonne, Axis & Allies, Fortress America, Shogun, Civilization, and, of course, Memoir; for board games.
For PC games I love Civilization 5, almost any Star Wars games, Lord of the Rings games, and many others.

My board games change a lot, but a couple of favorites:
Axis & Allies: Battle of the Bulge (really simple, elegant mechanic for simulating supply lines and the lines of "the bulge")
Puerto Rico
Agricola
Battle Cry! (still haven't bought the new one, but I hear good things)

Occasionally, if I'm feeling ambitious, I'll pull out Twilight Imperium.

I also enjoy some of the political games by Jason Matthews, although it's a lot harder to find opponents:
1960: The Making of the President (campaign as Nixon or Kennedy in the 1960 Presidential Elections)
Twilight Struggle (Cold War Game)
Founding Fathers (Writing the US Constitution)

I like this format, so I'll borrow it from Stig Morten:

Real Life - Football (soccer for Americans)

Wii - Mario Cart Wii

Computer - Memoir '44 Online

iPad - Small World for iPad, Angry Birds

Boardgames - Memoir '44 (obviously) and any other DoW title. My favorites these days are Cargo Noir, Small World, and Ticket to Ride: Europe. I also enjoy Robo Rally and Carcassonne.

I really like tide of iron, after a session i always feel very satisfied (even if i did lose, lots of debreifing going on after)
Over on BBG there are some posts comparing them both, I wont go into to much detail here.
But Toi is on a smaller scale (generaly) squad bases with figs represent a squad (10 - 12 men) vehicles represent 1 vehicle. the boards are very nice (thick and great artwork)
Componants are great. There are more rules to take in, although ToI is considered a light war game it still has a lot more rules compared to M44, I find there are more tactical and strategic options in ToI.
I must say that DoW's support for memoir is far better than FFG's of ToI, ToI has a few grey areas in its rules which can be annoying when learning although the Forums help with this.
ToI dosnt use cards as it main mechnic, it has cards but they are for assets and strategies available for the scenario.
ToI and M44 find the table as much as each other for me, it really depends who i have around and what im in the mood for.
I love both simplicity of M44 and the tactical options in ToI so love them both.
If you love M44 and dont mind learning a game with a thicker rule book i would recommend it.I find it easier to get people interested in playing M44 who dont play board games normally. I started with M44 and then got ToI, it took a little longer to grasp ToI but i love it now.
Check out ToI at BBG there are some vids and check out the forums, will give u a better idea

It looks that I'm different from most guys here Smile I grow up on computer games, played hell lot of them. I mostly like true RPG's like Baldur's gate, Deus Ex, Planescape Torment, The Witcher etc. then FPS and of course war and historical strategies. I played only few board games before M'44 - mostly social ones.

The other war games that I play besides Memoir 44 are

The Conflict of Heroes series games (e.g., Storms of Steel etc.) - these are fantastic - more detailed than Memoir, squad level and longer to play but great for when you want more realistic action

and simpler games like Risk, Broadside, Dogfight...

For a complete list of games I play see my BGG list at

http://boardgamegeek.com/collection/user/pisqueeter

I have two young kids so my family plays a wide variety of games. But my kids love some really great adult-level games. Here's a list of the best that we all love to play. These are the cream of crop as far as I am concerned:

Allhambra (my kids love it)
Carcassone + expansions
Cartegena
Chinatown (my kids love it)
Cyclades
Dominion +
The Downfall of Pompeii
Empire Builder (my kids love it)
Galaxy Trucker (my kids love it)
Ghost Stories +
Mr. Jack
Mystery of the Abbey (my kids love it)
Niagara
Pirate's Cove
Poison (my kids love it)
Railways of the World + (my kids love it)
Scotland Yard and or Ghost Chase (my kids love it)

Enthused by Memoir '44 I've recently started playing Richard Borg's Command & Colours: Napoleonics and Command & Colours: Ancients. The system really meets all my gaming needs.

I agree with OldBloodandGuts about A&A Battle of the Bulge: top game, very different to all the other A&A games.

Also play Ticket to Ride: Europe with the family.

I like to play the Axis & Allies games Bulge, D-Day and Guadalcanal. Battle Cry for ACW and I also enjoy the FoW Firestorm Campaign - Generals Wargame for Market Garden and Bagration.

I have experimented with the idea of using the A&A units along with GHQ 1/285 scale models for use in M44 games. I also use wooden blocks from an old Risk game to represent the infantry units.

I seem to like the look better on the M44 terrain and game boards/maps.

I only play a couple of games that I heard about, mostly because my money goes to other places right now, but here it goes:

Board games: Memoir (of course), monopoly, risk, sometimes battleship.

Online: memoir, world war online, maybe a few Facebook games here and there, but defiantly not "true" online games.

iPod Touch: world war, war 2 victory, battlezone3D (very nice tank vs tank game that takes place on the Russian Front), silent hunter, skies of glory, etc.
