I have played wargames since the mid-1960s, starting with many of the Avalon Hill games. As Strategy & Tactics started up, I began playing thoise games as well. After a multi-year drought, I have gone back to wargaming, owning many of the Lock n' Load WWII games and on World at War. I have become very interested in Victory Point games, lately, and, as I am a solitaire player, own a number of that company's games.
I have always played solo, as there haven't been many folks who I've known who enjoy war games.
Your favorite game(s):
Lock n' Load WWII series
What game(s) are you currently playing (solitaire, FTF, PBEM, etc.) or wish to play next?
Victory Point PBEM and solitaire
What game(s) have you played recently?
Lock n load, nations at war
In general, how much time do you spend gaming?
How big is your game collection?
Your local game club(s) and/or where you reside (let's network!)
Don't know - Fort Worth area
I have recently retired, so have the time to devote to my hobbies, including war gaming.
Personal Interests (favorite activities, movies, shows, books, music, etc.)
I am an artist, enjot Amateur Astronomy, Model Railroading, Geneaology and war gaming

Hi Jim, sorry about the delay. I have never Pbem either, but it would be fun to try. I only have a few VPG games, and I have none of the ones you mention...ha ha ha...but VPG do allow downloads of their rules, so I can easily get a copy and we could play on Vassal or CB.
It would be good for both of us newbies to try it out, as I am sure it will be fun and exciting.
Jim: I think Star Borders would be OK for solitaire play if you wanted a quick little spaceship battle game. Players have options to purchase "development cards" that give them special abilities. You are supposed to keep the development cards secret until the special ability is used. So that could be a problem since you would know what special ability the other side has, the element of "surprise" would be lost. But you could work around that.
