Has anyone manged to stay close to 1941 German historical advances? Take Kaunas on turn 2 in AGN? Break the Soviets in AGS and cross the Dnepr on or around when the Germans did?

Hoping this series gets more interest--I just started learning it and decided to make videos chronicling my progress, teaching as I go.

Campaign Questions.

I now have in my possession the entire EFS series....why I dont know. It just happened.

I've read the designer notes, skimmed the CSW folders seeing various issues here and there.

I have a couple of higher level questions after seeing the linking notes for AGC/S, I wonder if any others have done any linking work on AGN/C, and the other titles?

IF one were to include Typhoon & KtR/Crimea, the current scenarios really only run for between 28 and 47 turns, which would lead close to the beginning of Typhoon, from what I recall. 

Would one simply continue with Supply feeds and counter mix thru to say Dec 31st? to play a linked campaign?

KtR/Crimea kicks off later in '41, I imagine that there are units cross represented there as well? So some homework on reinforcement cards would be required.

Unit transfers across AGB would be either self researched or play as is past the published scenario dates?

Do any aficionados have a view on how to create a manageable campaign for all the titles and VC's? 

I understand there is talk of a reprint/republish of this series, would that include linking rules, transfers and play thru end of 41/early '42?

Afternoon all I just received my copy of Barbarossa: Crimea.  It is up to the usual high standards of GMT I have not started breaking apart the pieces and playing but it does look real good.

Any impressions of BARBAROSSA: KIEV TO ROSTOV now that it's been out for a while? Haven't seen anybody really talk about it.

Hi there,
My name is David Lubin, I have been a game Grognard for most of my life. I am looking for opponents I would prefer Face-to-Face gaming, but will consider PBEM. I am mostly into WWII games though I do enjoy and have several ACW and Ancients (in fact one of my favorite games is Siege of Jerusalem Avalon Hill). I also enjoy Monster Games. I have a good collection from GDW’s “Drang Nach Osten!” and “Unentschieden!” Through the Gamer’s “Bloody Omaha” to the most recent Decision Game’s remake of SPI’s (I actually have both versions) “War in the Pacific!” Though I really enjoy all types and sizes of War Games!

I also enjoy board games like “Space Hulk”, “Descent: Journeys in the Dark”, “Tide of Iron”, “Memoir ‘44”, and many others. I also enjoy a limited number of RPGs, CCGs, and Miniature games. I am handicapped and traveling is difficult for me but I can host and I can leave a game up on the table rather indefinitely! So if you are close enough to drive here drop me a note and let’s play a game, my collection is over 300 games.

Thanks

Dave

Wonder how close are the other games of Vance van Borries to the EFS system ?
- Roads to Leningrad
- Kasserine / Decision at Kasserine / Battle of Kasserine Pass
- Invasion Sicily

Skip Franklin hit me up for the mass CB game, and if I did not have 4 ASL PBEM games in progress on top of the two playtests on my table at home I'd be in. Have always wanted to play this bad boy....I'm sorry that I'm going to miss it. Well that and that I don't use CB..Not smart enough to move past ADC 2.0 and VASSAL yet.

Please beat me with a piece of liquorice if this is out of line, but I'm looking for copies of the playbook and scenario set-up cards from AGC. I bought the maps and counters off eBay ( to complete my EFS collection), but need the other two items. Will pay for copies/ scans etc.
Cheers,
Neil
