Here I Stand, Twilight Struggling through the Great Campaigns of the Next War For the People.

Profile Information

Your introduction to consim gaming:
The first semi-serious boardgames came when I was in my early teens - my good friend Jay has a family of gamers, and his mom made a habit of using the Admiral and well-placed secret armies to punish all of us at Castle Risk (which is, of course, vastly superior to regular risk).

I had brushes with Dungeons and Dragons and the usual role playing games in high school.

But it was the advent of PBEM aids and the Internet that turned me into a serious gamer. First I found games that I had seen on shelves as a kid - discovering Great Campaigns of the American Civil War, along with VASSAL and a few opponents willing to show me the ropes, led me to places like consimworld.com.

From there, I was on to more war games, euros, and card-driven games
Your favorite game(s):
Depends on the mood ...

New Year's Eve with the non-gaming family: Apples to Apples.

Euro: Puerto Rico

Hex-and-counter wargame: Great Campaigns of the American Civil War

Card-driven multi-player: Here I Stand. No questions asked.

Card-driven wargame: For the People.

Card-driven, but not a wargame: Twilight Struggle.

World War II grand strategic simulation (because EVERYONE should have a favorite of these!): World in Flames.

My kingdom for some plexi!

I need plexi. A lot of plexi.

A lot of plexi.


Now I've bought the usual piece of plexi from Lowes to cover a mapsheet or two.

But this is a 9 by 7 table. What would be great is two sheets - one 7 by 4, one 7 by 5.

Who's got a good idea ...?

How I spent my Sunday ...





War in Europe was under the Christmas tree this year .... but I've needed a table big enough to hold all nine maps!



Now - if only I could talk someone into driving to Fredericksburg once a week for the next two or three years ...…

Soviet surprise attack catches NATO off guard



FRANKFURT--Soviet-led armored Warsaw Pact columns have advanced across the West German border in a broad assault from Hamburg in the north to the American-held Fulda gap just east of Frankfurt.



The surprise attack was preceeded by a massive air battle, as wave after wave of Warsaw Pact Mig-21 fought for control of the skies over northern and central Germany.



In the town of Fulda, a small border hamlet guarded by the… Continue

Oh the darkness cometh... :) Worry not, next draft of TVQ will be dainty and lighthearted. Best comparison: Candyland.

Did a goose hunting show many years ago near Laurel (if I remember correctly) Maryland. Guide's name was Bobby Ewing. Brought home a couple of geese to cook!

Justin - Awesome stiper! Looks like one anyway! Where were you fishing? I used to be a TV producer doing hunting and fishing shows for ESPN, ESPN2, Outdoor Life and FOX Sports Net. Shows I worked on were Suzuki Great Outdoors, Wal-Mart Great Outdoors, Yamaha's American Expeditions, Suzuki's On The Pole and Pull: A Tour of America's Shooting Clubs

Justin,

Nope. Just SJW and that a long time ago. Was a fav for about 18 months and then my opponent moved and I've had no one to play against since. Ed has tempted me to pick the game back up but with all my other duties HIS, Combat Commander, Shifting Sands, and now FAB I've yet to do so.

Hey, Justin ... that is one big fish in your photo. Hope to see you at an HIS game in late April or so.
