*******************************************************************

13 Sept. 2019, just added to my wishlist:
Road of Dust and Rust
https://store.steampowered.com/app/804070/Road_of_Dust_and_Rust/
"Planned Release Date: Arriving in a few years"
-- ha, ha, that's a great release date.

*******************************************************************

Wishlist notes:
1) A lot of games on my Steam Wishlist are there in case they are heavily discounted (80-90% off), as I wouldn't bother buying them otherwise.
I don't want to pay top dollar for a game which I am likely to discard after an hour or two of playing.
2) Some are free games, which I have put on my Wishlist as a reminder for me to try them sometime.
3) The only games I particularly want (but am in no rush to get) are:
Age of Empires 4
Postal 4
Tropico 6

A guide for playing Fallout Shelter. It is somewhat lengthy, but there are a lot of tips and tactics included. A summary of tips is provided; but to get the most out of the guide, it would be best to read it through in its entirety.

Review Showcase
Vedelem: The Golden Horde is a fun real time strategy (RTS) game where you and your peasant army fight off the Mongol hordes.

You need to gather as much of the limited local resources as you can, to build up your military and your keep.

Also, you should level up your military academy to get better units (because, let's face it, my half-trained peasant army just wasn't very good, and needed to be replaced by some professional soldiers).
A good tactic is to put up some walls around your keep to protect it; if your keep falls, you lose the game. (C'mon, let's build that wall!)

So far, I've done well in the easier games, but have come a cropper in the harder games, so I need to start developing some better strategies.
The Asian hordes overran my puny empire easily (following which I was beheaded in the market square - it was not a fun event; I was hoping for some more time with my peasant dancing girls - but, sadly, that was not to be).

If you like RTS games, then I suggest that you give this one a try.
Lord knows, I need all the allies I can get, to help fight the Golden Horde (or, at least, to avenge my much-lamented death).

Oh, and did I mention that it's free?
So, what's stopping you? Get in there and try it out.



Update:
I think the "Hard" game mode should be re-named "Nearly Freaking Impossible" mode.
However, it can be done (although not by myself, as yet).

Here's a video of a guy beating Vedelem on "Hard":
