"Some memories flooding back after looking at these photos.  I auctioned off this game for FAB BULGE which plays somewhat similarly as a area movement game but faster.  This is a good game, however!"

"You can use the older Hannibal module, which is the AH version.  But you have to be in agreement with your opponent and you can't change horses in mid-stream."

Board Wargames ongoing online................

Just a few screenshots from several (ie too many !) Vassal (and one Cyberboard) PBEM games I have going at present.Vassal has really helped rejuvenate my interest in Board Wargames however to the detriment of my figure painting and bank balance !!This is Paths Of Glory (Cyberboard version) with Western Front situation in 1915 with Germans mounting an assault on my British…See More

Gary Barr commented on Gary Barr's blog post More Combat Commander
"Hi Kev Now that a tough question as there are dozens of scns but not sure if any others would class as starter ? Best idea might be to use the RSG and select Platoon sized forces on a map without hills and not too open (ie a bit like the Fat Lipki…"

More Combat Commander

Played three more scenarios from Combat Commander last night this time three from the Mediterranean supplement.First was Fallschirmjager versus New Zealanders near Maleme airfield Crete.This one saw NZ triumphant as I was able to get sufficient units off-board (double victory points) to build a good lead when sudden death kicked in.Second scenario was set in Poland in 1939…See More

Sorry for the late "friend" acceptance Gary. I have been traveling and, to be honest, not on CSWS of late.  :(

Hi Gary, totally know the feeling... and frankly, I hope to get more of them out on the table than play via Vassal or the like. After all, who needs more time in front of a screen?
