    Scratch scratch. One I got fairly well along, and another concept that I also got pretty far but got stuck.

    First was an abstract midieval game with units of 10. Each unit could be equipped from weapons ranging from lances to bows, had varying levels of training from recruit to veteran, and could be mounted or dismounted. No fantasy stuff, just raw midieval warfare.

    Cities produced men, material, and supplies, and I had rules for shipbuilding and siege weapons.

    Only found one person willing to delve into such details and play it with me . We played during our high school math class, which bugged the heck out of the teacher, but we both aced the tests anyways so she didn't stop us.

    The second was a space system which was detailed down to the location each ship systems was located. You would build your ship on a grid, and depending on which direction your ship was hit from, grid locations for that side were threatened. The outer shell of a battleship would usually be a few layers of armor, but if pummeled enough you can start hitting vital ship systems.

    The problem was the complexity of trying to randomly determine which grid locations were hit from the many directions your ship could get hit from, a problem I never quite solved, so the system was never actually playtested. I did build several ships using the model and weapons I designed.

    Do either of these systems have names? I know they weren't something I could lookup, but both sound interesting and a name to go with the ideals would be nice

    The midieval one was called the Battle for Colain or something like that. It's been 10 years...

    I don't think I ever gave the 2nd one a name.

    If there is interest, it may be interesting to bring one or both back from the dead. This would be a good place to do that.

    Indeed. Might be worth consideration

    Nuff said if you want realism and detail in a 2ww game. Hellish expensive and difficult to get hold of. Counter based/Hex board game.

    In fact, most of the Avalon Hill stuff was good.
