Mark E. Owens replied to Eric Walters's discussion Best Western Front Early War wargames in the group WW2 West Front Games
"I have raved about STORM OVER SCANDINAVIA though not usually over the historical Invasion of Norway.   The WHAT IF scenarios for Swedish involvement and the OB for Sweden as they hastily rearm are, for me, the 'core' of the…"

Mark E. Owens replied to Jim Werbaneth's discussion Bodyguard Overlord in the group WW2 West Front Games
"I have Bodyguard/Overlord, and does appear brilliant. Never got anyone to play it, though I have some Hope as my son has grown to a teenager and, as part of his Homework, he wrote about the Fall of France, 1940.  Naturally, I made my library…"

"Are you still around, Ola? Do you still pull these AP operational maneuver titles out? I've been thinking about using that fine fellow's variant of starting the campaign from First Alamein. The other thing I've suggested, somewhere,…"

"Ditching the Family..... They keep "pulling me back in"! God alone knows why, but they seem to want me around... .....and unfortunately keep me busy with house, finances, relatives, and the Joy of raising a teenager (now), everything but…"

Mark E. Owens replied to Larry Myers's discussion Central Front Series
"Although a battalion level series like "Dawn's Early Light" might be competition, The THIRD WORLD WAR and the "Assault" series are actually at different scales, with the former strategic in nature and the latter platoon…"

Mark E. Owens replied to Brett W Avants's discussion Persuade me to buy Alamein! in the group Avalanche press´s operational level wargames
"I see no one has answered you on this subject.  Okay, here we go! You will seldom find North Africa at this kind of scale and level of detail. Though the maps have understandably gotten some criticism, I do believe they're functional…"

Profile Information

Your introduction to consim gaming:
My brother brought home the AH "AFRIKA KORPS" that his friend Carlos had just gotten. A tutored play-through of that one (why was Carlos helping my Brother more than me when HE had the big units and all I had were the dinky 1-1-6 British brigades?) rapidly led to my own purchase of D-DAY ....and thence to AH ANZIO.
The rest, as they say, is History. :--)
Your favorite game(s):
The inventory spread sheet of my closet scares people, containing as it does over 250 of g*mes of all sizes, eras, scope, and detail. :--)
I have some favorites to which I would happily return, though there are sufficiently large numbers unplayed that I put on the table when I can.
What game(s) are you currently playing (solitaire, FTF, PBEM, etc.) or wish to play next?
Command Perspectives' ROAD TO WASHINGTON (several scenarios), L.A. Lawless (from F&M long ago)
What game(s) have you played recently?
Command Perspectives' "Road To Washington" (Second Manassas/Bull Run), L.A. LAWLESS (Miranda from F&M long ago), ALAMEIN:HTP (Scenario 1), RED PARACHUTES (Scenario 1)
In general, how much time do you spend gaming?
Too little...
How big is your game collection?
See above: non-g*mers blanch and run away.
