About to sit down with Nemo's War ...a solitaire game -- which is fine, but could anyone direct me to a thread where I might find an opponent to play online (ie Vassal)? I've become proficient over the years playing solo (who hasn't?), but there's no better AI than another's mind.
Maybe I'll download 20,000 League's Under the Sea when I'm done ...
Just starting Great War in Europe (GMT) . Never played yet but it looks like it might be fun what with all of the fronts depicted in a manageable format. I love Der Weltkrieg but the maps are so huge that its hard to leave them set up for the length of time that you need to play the game.
I just finished Advanced European Theatre of Operations but shut it down after May 1940 as I lost interest in the period.
Cedar Mountain (SPI) think this may well be my first ever foray in to GBACW. Just suffered nineteen 6s (of 41 rolls) as my opponent conducts defensive fire :-(
Also playing Halls of Montezuma (GMT) covers a period I know nothing of (other than the fact I've watched a couple of Alamo films - does that count?). I have to say for the first few turns I had no real idea what my strategy should be. We're now on Turn 6 and whilst I'm still a little unsure I'm finding a 'rhythm'.
The third game underway is Hell's Highway (VG). 1st Airborne are holding on tenaciously as XXX Corps finally seems to be making a bit of headway.
Enjoying all three games greatly.
Have just submitted my CSW Expo selections:
Veracruz is a very good game! Played it for the first time just a few years ago.
It was the first issue of S&T that I purchased, and convinced me to subscribe.
