  1. I think that a good hand management game is Empire of The Sun. You have to determine if to play a card on your opponents turn or play the card as the OC or EC when it is your turn.

    I enjoyed the talk but wish you had talked about more war games like the above, Paths of Glory, Combat Commander, and even the new Civil War game by GMT.
