"One of my ASL friends in Alaska is also a big Combat Commander nut. In fact, he wants me to design some scenarios for the game for him. The terrain seems straightforward enough. Looks like I will actually need to purchase some of the C/C modules so…"
"The ASL rulebook and Beyond Valor are where everyone needs to start. These include the information counters you will need to play any of the scenarios, plus the Russian and German counters. There is a lot you can play with just these components.…"
"My Russians were not doing to well at this late point in the game. About 75% of the blazing and wrecked AFV's on the map are mine. Those German tanks/SP guns with the 75L and 88L guns at long range just picked off my hapless Soviet-made tanks…"
Been a while since I last checked in to CSW and just saw your question. Since I have two sets of CoB perhaps I can try to answer.
CoB came with Chapter G rules sections 1-10 (Animal Packs). Rules sections 11 - 18 came with GH. The original…"
"Shane - gonna have to disappoint you. You will need both CoB and GH, plus FKaK or WoA, and Yanks to play most of the scenz. To play them all you will also need Doomed Battalions and Armies of Oblivion, Croix de Guerre, and Partisan. A vast majority…"
"Joe - the original plan for Blood and Jungle was to have it ready for release at ASLOK. AFAIK that is still Chas' plan. Only 1 or 2 scenarios left getting their final tweeks Counters are almost complete and being pre-proofed even now. Some of…"
Attended several ConsimWorld Expos since 1999. Sought a venue to play some of the games I seldom got to play due to size and space limits and lack of opponents.
Your favorite game(s):
ASL, MBT, Siege of Jerusalem, Flight Leader, Guadacanal, Breakout Normandy, PB, PL, Advanced Third Reich, Catan, Gettysburg, others.
What game(s) are you currently playing (solitaire, FTF, PBEM, etc.) or wish to play next?
What game(s) have you played recently?
Played a solo game of Breakout Normandy recently. Got my butt whipped as the Allies. Those Flak units were a lot tougher on the defense than I hoped. They stood up time and again to whatever I could throw at them...and the German armor kept pluggin the holes I was able to create. Never did achieve a "breakout" from Omaha Beach, and that sealed my fate.
In general, how much time do you spend gaming?
10-15 hours weekly.
How big is your game collection?
Enough to keep me busy for a long time.
Your local game club(s) and/or where you reside (let's network!)
Arizona, Phoenix area
I want to find someone to teach me how to play the boardgame "Achtung-Spitfire" by Clash of Arms Games. Counters are great, scenarios look fun, but I'm challenged on understanding the flight rules...of course I have that same problem with most "flight" games. Left-right-forward-back I comprehend. Add in UP-DOWN and I get lost. Any tutors out there?
Personal Interests (favorite activities, movies, shows, books, music, etc.)
Almost any history book or magazine, especially if it is about WWII. Reading about history is what got me interested in gaming about history.
