Jim Eliason commented on Andreas Ludwig's group Fire in the Sky

Jim Eliason commented on Andreas Ludwig's group Fire in the Sky
"I recently finished a PBEM game of this.  I beat a newbie as the Japanese.  I'm in turn 6 of another game where my Japanese have gotten terrible dice.  Rangoon never fell, and I've given up on it.  Surabaya survived…"

Jim Eliason commented on Herr Dr.'s group WBC Sand Plaquers

Hi Jim! I think we met a few years ago.. Hope things are going well for you! For the record, the Mage group is still active in Sioux City and Sioux Falls, though not a lot of boardgaming anymore, alas. I'm mostly residing in NY now, BTW.
