"Osprey is a good start, but as for a book with a Polish perspective, now that could be quite a challenge. I will have a look in some places for you."

Need Help Finding Books on Poland 1939

I am looking for reading material on the invasion of Poland in 1939. So far, I have read Blitzkrieg Unleashed and Poland Betrayed (both Stackpole books). They are both predominantly written from the German perspective and only give the broad strokes of the campaign with a few personal anecdotes and journal entries to give the "personal feel". What I am after are more detailed accounts of the battles, hopefully with a map or two, and I'd like to get a Polish perspective for a change. I am…See More

Off the Rails with TK2

Totaler Krieg! was my first wargame back in 2000. I knew the basics of WWII, but did not know any Operation in great depth and certainly had no clue how to run the war from a commander's perspective. Gradually, over the years, I built up my knowledge of the timeline, the events, their impact, etc. My grasp of the game improved and I enjoyed playing it from both sides, although I have a better time as the Allies as they start the war on a reactionary footing and not…

An Appeal to the Shutterbugs

There are a lot of great and interesting photos posted on this site. I am cursed with a healthy sense of curiosity so I check out a lot of these pictures. And I usually end up learning NOTHING as there is no caption to tell me what the heck I am looking at. You took the time to take the picture, you took more time to post the picture. Could you please take a few more seconds to add a caption to your lovely picture?



I am sure I am not the only one thinking this. There are great… Continue

How Do You Do It?

No, not that "it"...



When playtesting, how do you forget the "old" rules and only remember the new changes? I've been working at this for several years now and have decided maybe I need to hear what other tips and tricks you guys have for dumping old outdated material from the gray matter dustbin and keeping just the new material in your head.



It's not such a problem for me during play, but in post-session discussions on possible changes, updates,… Continue

How Deep is the Crossover?

During a discussion on gaming in general, I wondered what percentage of wargamers also willingly play Euros. And, of course, everyone had a completely different guess with their attendant theory on how that number came to them.



Based on comments overhead at CSW Expo, the games I saw being played in the Annex at the Expo, what gets talked about in the "On The Table" and "Out of the Wrapper" folders on CSW, my guess was that 50% or more of the wargamers also play Euros. The other… Continue

Super Fantastic Gaming Hour.

A local game group. Occasionally I get to play something that is almost a wargame.

Thanks! How have you been?

While based in Amsterdam for a week, took the trains to see Alkmaar (Cheese Market), Den Haag (cousin), Arnhem (aunt) and other sites in Holland. After that, capped off the trip with a few days in Brugge (Belgium) and a day in Brussels before heading home again. And for all the history there (Waterloo, Arnhem, Bastogne, etc), family just wasn't up to stepping through the various locales....guess I have to go back again soon. (But think I will avoid next year with the Olympics being "in town" as it were.)

Indeed - the meetings went quite well I think :-)  That said, you and Chad are always such friendly and inviting people I hated to cut our game short.

Hello Kai,

Thanks for the birthday greetings - you are so thoughtful for posting.  It is such a treat for me that you and Chad are always so welcoming.  Sorry I had to cut our game of Through the Ages short but dinner and conversation were a highlight of the weekend.  It really means a lot to have such fine people as friends.  I look forward to seeing in Tempe next month!

Take care and thanks again,

John

Thanks for the birthday greets; turned out to be a much better day than I expected.  It was so good in fact that I feel hungover today and only had one drink!  What a riot.
