As some may know, Tom Shaw has blessed our 50th anniversary PBEM Stalingrad tournament and it would be better if at least one more experienced player joined. The tournament will start after I make the random pairings December 15. Tom will be issuing a certificate to all who play in the tournament and special certificates to the top four. I appeal to all of you out there to join either by posting to http://talk.consimworld.com/WebX?7@782.sb4KcaQQZLk.62@.ee6c970/2943 or emailing me at angiolillo_joseph@hotmail.com Currently we have 7 experienced players and 6 novices. The tournament rules are simple using a four round Swiss system then semi-finals and finals. Here is the link to the tournament rules: http://talk.consimworld.com/WebX?14@782.sb4KcaQQZLk.86@.ee6c970/2968 This link is gives you the rules as an attachment to post #2815. According to Tom Shaw, Charles Roberts initially designed the game before he left the company and Lindsey Schutz and Tom Shaw developed the game. I will also be posting the actual designers and developers of the early games as the internet is only about 90% correct and I want to set the record straight. Not only did I interview Tom, who had actual documents: I taped the interview as well. In the Stalingrad PBEM tournament, I will personally donate the money for a first place plaque. Join in. We need more players. Joe Angiolillo (developer Axis & Allies and designer of many SPI, Gameshop, Nova, GTD, and Coleco games)

Going to start a VASSAL PBEM game with 3-players campaign and I am assigned to be the UK/US.....the engine is most suitable for some rigid system like this with I-go-U-go system.  This is a game I haven't touched for more than 20 years, I believe.  I need time to refresh the rules before I can deploy the Poles!

Hi All,
I have been looking through my old boxes since I came back into the hobby and found my original design of Axis and Allies 1939. I had left my compnay Nova after design assistance and development of the original Axis and Allies and printed up a set of die cut counters for France and China. I made up rules and playtested the game a number of times myself. Maybe I should contact the designers of World At War because I designed the 1939 version first - in 1984. I'll try to remember to bring the prototype (no one else has ever seen it) to Lancaster next year.

Hi guys, I've searched the site carefully and I cannot find any mention of it for some reason. It's got to be here somewhere but the guys at www.the2halfsquads.com have an awesome podcast/radio show. The most recent episode features an interview with John Hill. A must for all you Squad Leader fans!

Thanks yes I have played one or two games via Vassel and Cyber-boards and other Play By E-mail ways, I am really hoping to find some one to play Face to Face. But thanks anyway

Hi Dave,

I'm an old Trentonian myself, but I moved out of the area many moons ago. Like you I started with AH in the early 70s. I am new to the Vassal solution. Have you used that for finding and playing an opponent?
Comment by David Lubin on March 6, 2010 at 12:43am
Evening all My name is Dave Lubin and I am an old guard player since the mid 70's. About the only time I was not active were my first few years at Monmouth University. I Have not look much into the recent products out out from AH.WoC. But I do actively buy from Decision, GMT, Critical Hit, and MMP/Gamers and some of the AH and SPI remakes.

I play a lot of Solo games as I am Handicapped and unable to work so on my good days I play my games - though a Opponent would be most welcome if anyone have Weekdays Free.

At the moment I have The Battle for Normandy (GMT) on the table though I can't help notice some of the differences between Battle for Normandy and Longest Day.

I would also love to see a reprint of Siege of Jerusalem or even a good up-date. GMT did a very good job of their version of Alesia... thought Cesar at Alesia will always be a favorite!

So if you are in the Trenton, NJ area drop me a note and lets play a game!

I think the first wargame I ever owned was Richthofen's War, which I received as a Christmas gift when I was probably still too young to comprehend the rules. Didn't matter; it was enough that it looked cool and it was about airplanes ...
