About Me
39 year old 25 year old. Enjoy games of WWI, WWII. I have to play A&A alot now because true gamers of the games from the "glorious past" are very hard to find.
Personal Interests (favorite activities, movies, shows, books, music, etc.)
I like to remake the boards that I play on... make em larger and more player friendly. I've just redid A&A Pac... its now a 3' x 5' board.

As far as I know, my uncle was serving on the heavy cruiser Prinz Eugen as well as various other battleships. The Prinz Eugen survived the war, although she was hit several times, and I don't know in which battle my uncle went overboard - only that it was somewhere near the Arctic sea and he spent much time in ice cold water before being rescued. My grandmother (on the mother's side) was quite vague about the story when she told me some years ago.

She's 86 now and started to talk much about the war latetely (she didn't when she was younger, the topic always seemed to be somewhat problematic to her), so maybe I will get an opportunity to learn more. My other grandma (who is dead for about 12 years now) always spoke about the war and answered all questions, even the most delicate ones, and I got the chance to read the letters my grandfather sent to her from various fronts.

I never knew how my maternal family branch experienced the war, but this is changing recently - thanks to my grandmother's awakened interest in telling her stories.

Why don't you join the All Things Avalon Hill group? It seems like a natural for you.

A&A was our "gateway drug" into the board wargaming world. We used to play tactical shooters and similar videogames until we stumbled over A&A some day. We really enjoyed playing A&A, WaW, Pacific and Europe.

Then we discovered Squad Leader and Totaler Krieg and other hex based games - and since then, we got addicted to learning more and more complex games. Without A&A, though, we never would have made our first steps into the wargaming universe, so we owe this game much dept.

You live in Wisconsin, that's really cool! My grand uncle (my grandma's brother) emigrated to Wisconsin during WWII after being sunk with his battle ship somewhere in the Atlantic and rescued by the US, so I still have relatives over there. They live in Wisconsin Dells.

Hi Jeff, welcome to CSW Social :) We enlarged some of our boards as well, especially A&A and World at War which tend to become somewhat crowded. In addition, we glued them to a wooden board and proctected them with beer-proof lamination ;) We don't play A&A anymore, but the maps are still a great underlayment for other games.

Here is a picture of our enlarged maps, using me as a rating scale:

Have a great day!
