Older member just coming back. Son off to school, and once again searching for a FTF opponent now that I have more time. I have had a hard time learning to use internet play from a lack of ability to learn to master enough of the game to get a start without aggravating Internet opponent. Especially looking to see if I can find a FTF player on just about any topic in the Panama City Florida area
Your favorite game(s):
Big Monster Game Fan. War in Europe, World at War, GMT's East Front Series, Advanced Tobruk, Rising Sun, Gamers East Front Series. Like WWII subjects best, however will have games spanning all eras. Have not had a chance to play many newer games and would love to have a chance to try some out.. Have played
What game(s) are you currently playing (solitaire, FTF, PBEM, etc.) or wish to play next?
Advanced Tobruk, Anzio, Next War Solitare, Want any FTF on Anygame
What game(s) have you played recently?
Advanced Tobruk, Squad Leader, PanzerBlitz. Next War. All Solitare. Air Assault on Crete. Have opened the box and looked at so many new games, and lack of an opponent is killing me. Many of them appear to have interesting features, such as event cards, something not really present before. The graphics, rules, and counters seem much better. Although the golden age of gaming was supposed to be in the 70's, especially since the games were FTF and a large social occasion, it appears that the larger variety of companies and topic areas would provide a better gaming experience if the computer interface could get mastered by us old fogies.
In general, how much time do you spend gaming?
2 hours a week. Would play much more if I had an opponent
How big is your game collection?
Your local game club(s) and/or where you reside (let's network!)
No local club as far as I know. Reside in Panama City Florida on the Gulf Coast
Started playing wargames after discovering a copy of Panzerblitz on a friends shelf in the late 1970's. Had a small group of friends that became interested. Played almost any game we could afford to buy. Avalon Hill and SPI were pretty much all that was available where I lived then. No Internet, remember. Best Experience, Multi Month War In Europe by SPI. Lost opponents after going off to college, and have never found any looking for regular play since I have lived here in Panama City.
Personal Interests (favorite activities, movies, shows, books, music, etc.)
Have a home shop I enjoy building things in, collect military history books and albums. Have a house that is the usual consumer of time. Son off at college, so now have more time than I used to. Love the outdoors, fishing and diving, but now limited in what I can do. Always enjoyed reading and watching military history.

Bob, you have a taste in games that parallels my own. I can't wait until I finally retire for good; at least I've got lots of opponents up here in Central Virginia, so I'm never lacking for that, just lacking in time! Glad to see someone else loves the old AH AIR ASSAULT ON CRETE--I still do. Am deep in to Grand Tactical Series and looking forward to the Bastogne title when it comes out! In the meantime, I've been dipping my toes into the Compass Games Company System Series (CSS) titles on the Marianas Island battles!
