Played: w@w 17, "Leningrad '41" Germans won on last turn. Not bad.
Played: Decision Games "RAF" intro twice. Brits hung on. Good game.
Nuts! Publishing game "Fitna" intro on the Syrian Civil War with Vassal. A multi-player CDG game on the Middle East of today. Our group will try a 4 or 5 player of this soon, FTF. Was lots of fun.
Played: S&T 324, "After the Fall". Two Battles on the last years of the Western Roman Empire. Tried the Faesulae 405 scenario. Has possibilities but needs more play.
SPI's Victory in the West system. Played "Patton's 3rd Army". Ami's did not go far. An "oldie but goodie".
Our group played the 4 player scenario(Kurds Independence) from Nuts! Publishing's game "Fitna". Everyone liked the system and will play again.
Have got AVALANCHE: THE SALERNO LANDINGS by GDW on the wargame table and have it--at last--set up. Got the game on BGG Marketplace for a song, but there were a few missing pieces that I had to fabricate and the setup took a while given my eyes had trouble seeing the unit IDs. Am playing with none of the optional rules and using the Panther and Tiger tank company combat values, even though the most recent research on the battle reveals neither tank was present in significant quantities. No matter. I don't want to screw up the balance in trying this out.
Am bouncing back and forth between my home in Central Virginia and the Carolinas as I've got some family health issues to help with, so I don't expect to get the game finished until the New Year. Then I'll decide whether to play it again with the optionals.
This is a game I have long wanted and I'm eager to get into it. The system is fairly straightforward but a bit unusual. The only bad thing--if one can say this--are the high stacks that can occasionally occur, from what I read of the stacking rules. We'll see if they actually happen in the game.
