I played 'Origins' and 'Thebes' yesterday, both of which were German games, not wargames. In the former, one primate type did almost manage a world empire while another type had kangaroo cavalry of some sort?
Hopefully, I will get to play Combat Commander next month.
A nasty game where you are confronted with the cold dehumanize money only world. I enjoyed the game very much though. It really tells you how the imperialist governments and greedy banker work together to thieve and enslave people.
Sorry, I am too emotional after the game.
Should go back to normal wargaming: Guelphs and Ghebillines. Cheerio!
The Marcher Lords. Playing the original Microgame Design Group version. I'm playing the Welsh. My opponent and I are playing via Cyberboard and doing around a turn every other day or so. Its a fun, light, little game. My Welsh are getting badly mauled. I keep waiting for my opponent to make a mistake, but so far he hasnt made enough. Games about halfway done and it looks like it will be a Norman victory.
As has been case for most of the 35 yrs since 14 - almost nothing. Have run hundreds of Diplomacy games ftf & online as can always get players. Have run acquire & executive decision as well online. Adapted Fighting Sail & Flying Circus for non-wargamers & ran a few online. Can solitaire Fred the Great & 1776 + have some folios to grab a newbie every once in a while. Thank god for the SSi Napoleons/Civil Wars (could care less on graphics not a Talonsoft fan). Can always enjoy them. Have 40-50 board wargames but little hope.
Playing AP "Bismarck" via Skype and e-mail with my son. He's the Admirality and I am sending reports and receiving orders and playing out the only copy we have of the game ! Recently played Triumph of Chaos, a blast, Silver Bayonet, less of a blast and looking forward to trying Blood and Bridges which just arrived in the post.
