The second monster wargame I played was War in Europe. Back in the Seventies, that was the wargame to play. It had everything, production, the whole European continent, air power. strategic bombing. You could play WiE many times and still have fun. Then I remember playing Highway to the Riech. One British player sent the 30th armor through the German fortifications at the start of the highway and got through them in 3 or four turns. I am kinda rambling, War in the East 1st edtion I still have a copy. Ron

Ron, I have a great deal of nostalgia about the first edition. What an impact it had when it first came out. I had been playing the KURSK series of games (KURSK, FRANCE 1940, TURNING POINT: STALINGRAD, MOSCOW CAMPAIGN, and eventually DESTRUCTION OF ARMY GROUP CENTER and this game just scratched my itch. Sure, there were problems with the game. But the sheer scope and scale of it just fired the imagination....

War in the East first edition was what I started on Monster gaming. I remember a gaming friend bought it when it first came out, halfway through the game we found the rule about attacking out of supply. That sure changed things.

Ron, I remember WAR IN THE EAST. Are you talking about the 1st Edition or the 2nd? Either one filled the wargamer head with dreams of endless panzer pushing...I have waves of nostalgia for both editions. But I won't ever play them again. They were fun in their day, but there's too many other really awesome games now on the topic to go back. Sigh. But every time I see the map...see the counters...I remember....

Chuck Sutherland, making note of all the Monsters I own, told me that I CANNOT ever sell them.

So, Chuck, when you come over this weekend, maybe we can finally get that 4X10 HDPB table top over here and break one out.
