COMANCHERIA: THE RISE AND FALL OF THE COMANCHE EMPIRE (GMT Games, 1 player, ages 14 and up, 60-360 minutes; $60)
Games that simulate an event or concept have always appealed to me. I like the ability to experiment with the subject, to try out different strategies and ideas. I love the way simulation games can teach me new things. I find it fascinating that a period of history or a hypothetical idea can take shape and come to life on my dining room table with a few rules and some cardboard.
