Played GMT'S "Successors III". Played the 4 player version. Never played the earlier editions. I was Ptolemy and Lysimachus. If familiar with the game, I'm in Egypt and Thrace(Bulgaria). Pretty far from each other. Everyone else were closer to their leaders than me. The luck of the draw. No one had played this game before, so we were slow going at first. We went to the middle of turn 2; when the Antipater/Antigonus player achieved a Auto-Win. It took us about 5 hours to go this far. Each turn has 5 strategy phases. These are mini-turns. We were going much faster by the time the game ended. I liked this game and would play it again and again. Oh, I came in last. Good job GMT.
Last night Jim, Katie and I played Last Night on Earth, a Zombie vs. Humans game. Rather tense and fun. The rules at several sections are vague and need some attention - this is from Jim and my wargaming perspective. Not looking for loopholes but some critical items were left "vague". Still we hada hoot and found that at a basic level it is alos a bit of a wargame as well.
Spending time, when I get some, to read & play Island War Deluxe by Lock 'n Load Publishing and also Clash for a Continent by Worthington games. The British are fighting their way to Bunker Hill-bit of a slaughter though in the centre with both their flanks doing much better. Great game with Action Points mechanism. Really like these action points which are throwing plenty of chaos to both sides.
Played "Warriors of God" by MMP FTF. Its a very good game but lousy on History of the period. The name was a misnomer, for me, because I thought it was referring to the Christian counter-crusades against the muslim crusades. It's on the wars among the Franco-Norman aristocracy for control of France/England from 1135-1453. Played 4 times.
Also, played VPG's "D-Day Juno". A good little game on the Canucks D-day landings. I have all the other games in this series but this is the only one played so far. I will have to play all the others just based on the one FTF playing of this one.
