What Does a Good Minis Game Need?

No.15451107 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
What are some mechanics you look for when deciding whether or not to play the latest minis game? What are some of your favorite mechanics from various games? What kind of mechanics would you like to see implemented in minis games and which ones thrown out completely?

I like Warmachine's concept of a central spellcaster powering different 'jacks in their army with a dice pool to give them a boost at different times.

I dig Infinity's turn structure that allows opposing players to be active during your turn, resulting in continuous participation at the game table. It reminded me of WH40K 2nd edition's "overwatch" which forced tactical sacrifices and careful movement.
