Your introduction to consim gaming:
I'm very new to wargaming. No Retreat! is the little gem that hooked me into "hex and counter" wargames. I play mainly eurogames with my friends, but I like to try very different kind of games. The thing I like most about wargaming is that the more I play wargames, the more I want to know about history and the more I know about history, the more I want to play...

Command & Color: Ancients, No Retreat!, Paths of Glory, Combat Commander: Europe

Personal Interests (favorite activities, movies, shows, books, music, etc.)
I love music and I'm a bass player. I play bass in a dadaist punk rock band named "Momenti di Forte Imabrazzo". I like very different styles and genres of music. My favorite bass player is Mike Watt.
I read a lot of comic books, but recently focused my attention mainly in Bonelli comics and italian popular series. My favourite comics authors are Andrea Pazienza, Stefano Tamburini, Gipi, Guido Nolitta, Tiziano Sclavi, Alan More, Grant Morrison, Jack Kirby, Hirohiko Araki, Go Nagai, Naoki Urasawa, Osamu Tezuka.
I love New German Cinema, Herzog and Fassbinder above all.

Leuthen!

After four plays, I think Leuthen from Victory Point Games is a great little gem. With little space, very few units and few and easy rules you get everything you need from a wargame: fog of war, different units with different strenghts/weaknesses against other units and terrain, morale and cohesion, very clever tactical cards system, hard decisions to take, manoeuvring and good historical flavour. It has a very good replayability. In my four plays I have faced very different situations, with…

Warriors of God: my thoughts

Yesterday I managed to play a complete game of Warriors of God with my wargame-buddy Luca.

Actually, we played two times before, in a game club, but we could not get to the last turn before the closing time...

I played the English, Luca played the French. I won on points (four or five, I don't rememeber exactly).

We had a very good time. Probably WoG is the most enjoyable wargame I have ever played.

There's a lot of narrative, a lot of twists. The leader death phase is…

How I learned to stop worrying and love wargaming

Probably the game that helped me more in getting into wargaming was Victory at Midway, from Command Magazine #14. 
I played VaM solo, but I think it's better face to face. Anyway I was very satisfied of the game, just because of the rules: they're clearly written, well organized and...…

A House Divided: second game

Second game for my friend Luca and me.
I play the North he plays the South.
June 1862: Washington falls, the South wins.


I lost in a very stupid way.
I was very aggressive and tried to push through Cairo: I conquered Memphis and Nashville, but I didn't manage to go beyond and seriuosly threaten the South.
In the last three turn, Luca used very wisely a couple of crack units and conquered Baltimore. Then he finished Washington…
