It is good to know I'm not alone up (or down) here :)
I see you play Pax Romana, which seems another fine game, published during my 10 years wargaming gap (the good of it is that I see lots of news in one go, well maybe too many). Although the ancient, is not the period hot for me now (I'm inf full ACW at campaign level), this game looks so juicy that I've just downloaded the rules and the vassal module and I'm going to learn it in solo. Please keep me updated when your group of players meet in Brisbane. It will not be easy for me to come there (I've just moved here and I'm settling in), as Toowoomba is not just behind the corner, but I hope we could do it. Otherwise, we may meet on Vassal, if that would be fine with you.
Hi Hans. I noted your Down-Under location and wanted to give you a heads-up on one of my designs. My title MAORI WARS (the Settlement of New Zealand) is currently being developed by KhyberPass Games and should be released for preorder before the year is out. If you have any interest contact them and spread the word to your friends. You can learn more on the ConSimWorld MAORI WARS Blog as well as on my website. All the best.
