What are you doing to prep games?
Clipping counters? P'n'P? Building expansions to your house to fit Case Blue?
Not really. I don't enjoy the smaller scenarios. Red Barricades was fun though
ASL has never appealed to me.PB/PL/PG is the smallest I will go, anything smaller and i would be as well playing Call of Duty on the PC or Playstation (now that comment could open up and good debate...or not)
Sorting Conquistador (starting today)
Boxes sitting on the stupid AH version, trying to flatten the board.
Clipping a nice used copy of Clash of Giants II. Considering my recent total ignorance of the Galicia campaign of 1914, I am looking forward to a another take on it. My previous experience was with Worthington's Guns of Galicia.
Well I am pretty happy to say, that I squeezed Flying Colors (2nd Ed), Serpents of the Seas and Ship of the Line into 2 boxes. I just started playing this and wanted to organize things better. All the counters barely fit into 3 GMT counter trays in one box (SoS) with just enough real estate to sort and group, while the rules, maps, charts and extra printed material fit in the second box (FC).
I have started rounding the counters too with my 2mm Oregon Rounder.
Just received DAK2 - my first foray into OCS and I must say she's a beautiful beast! Anyway I'm clipping all the counters for the Operation Compass scenario and will hopefully get to push some cardboard around today, it being ANZAC Day so kind of appropriate to be playing DAK2.
Getting to the very end of the pile. Actually clipped Dragon Pass, which I wasn't sure I'd ever do.
Doing Tuniisia (how'd that not get clipped), and I have one OSG title from the recent sale left.
Otherwise, pending any more discoveries, I'm out.
Meanwhile, slogging through the Red Sash rules. Slow going, mainly because I'm playing a video game
in order to avoid the effort. :P
I just finished clipping a bunch of Panzer Grenadier stuff I won in an auction a couple months ago. Battle of the Bulge, Sinister Forces, Afrika Korps, and Road to Berlin. All said, a ton of counters in those things, only had one come apart that I had to glue back together and one sheet that was slightly misaligned, so overall not too bad all things considered.
Reading the rules to "Summer Storm : The Battle of Gettysburg" Clash of Arms 1998...I will never have the time play the entire 3 day scenario, but the command/control system and off battle site map movement are very interesting concepts. Haven't punched/clipped the counters yet but did spray them with clear kote.
Making expansion naval counters for Siege of Constantinople.
Clipping Air Assault on Crete/Invasion of Malta to boot.
