PCGamer mag. help me find a game

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Online peoples! need some help while in my search!
Looking for anyone who subscribes to PCGamer magazine and has at least the last 4 issues.

thinking it was 1 or 2 before the "PC Builders guide" issue..

anywho somewhere in the last half of the magazine there was a small blip on an old but updated WW2 strategy game.
it's played top down and looks like a board game and has Civilization's hexagons (i think)

the article mentioned how you can get it for 10 bucks or so, that the update was very signifcant and it's a worthy buy. pretty sure it was turn based as well.
best as i can remember the acronym was something had 4 or 5 letters.

any one of might have an idea let me know

Gary Grigsby's World at War maybe? it's not hexagonal though, it's more like Risk.

Try this list:
