I've loved schematics, charts, graphs and maps since I was little.  I used to pin them up on my walls.  I know... weird for a girl!  But, my Dad has a similar "systems" fascination, so I'm sure I got it form him.  I used to break down old computers in the 1980's and 1990's and follow the circuitry, looking at all the resistors, etc.   

Wargaming is a new love for me.  I've really only just begun getting into the hobby.  I also play Euro boardgames.  I just bought  Battle for Moscow, and "Spies!"  Anyone know of a good WG group in the Houston area that wouldn't mind having a person of the female persuasion sit in?    Thanks to all for the warm welcome to ConsimWorld!

I got into cartography when I was younger, partly because of wargaming.  And I love tracking what historical commanders did over maps--wargaming was a natural extension of "participatory" military history.  Well, you've picked quite a series of games to get started with.  RISE AND DECLINE OF THE THIRD REICH is one of the more complex titles out there. AMBUSH is great fun but is more like a comic book--one of my favorite experiences.  I'm sure the readership would love to know what other games you are playing, what you like and/or dislike about them, and why....

I've not played 3R in quite some time.  I want to try the Avalanche Press edition of JOHN PRADOS'S THIRD REICH if I can get my head around the "buckets 'o dice"  and initiative combat system.  I play a lot of tactical level games but strategic simulations are something I really do enjoy.  

You'll have no shortage of titles or opponents.  Glad to see the BGG steered you here!

Welcome Kimberly!  Lots of great people and discussions on CSW.  And thank you again for your game purchase.  Did you receive it today?

Welcome Kimberly!  Hope you find some interesting groups for the games you play.  Sounds like you are a 4th Ed AH Third Reich player.  I wax pretty nostalgic over that one...
