AH "Afrika Korps" 1964. Bought after seeing an advertisment in "Boys Life" magazine. Thought those German desert uniforms bore an uncanny resemblance to our own Boy Scout uniforms.

Is historical board-gaming dead in the Triad? I sure hope not! My dilemma is that I recently obtained a 2nd edition copy of GMT’s Triumph and Tragedy game that requires 3 players. I am seeking some interested gamers in the Triad area who might be willing to get together once or twice monthly to explore this title along with other games that we could enjoy together. I am willing to host and to provide a meal and beverages. Please let me know if you are interested, and I will contact you with further details. – Allen Joslyn (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Ray, that is great, I think you have racked up more languages than countries that most people even get to visit!
Well I am still playing ASL in spurts and fits here in Pittsburgh-haven't been to Oil City. With small kids my game time is a bit sparse...except of course to play the likes of 'Hey thats my fish!'...next might be Warhammer...yikes.
Hello Ray- Its Armando Signore, we gamed briefly in 1994-5. I attended Bowman Gray School Medicine as a grad student. I ran across a flyer in my old pile of gamin 'stuff' for a con called ASL Winds of War 95! I see you still travel, great. I have a good group of gamers here in Pittsburgh, and I usually attend Origins (wife and kids in tow!). Hope to run into you someday...ciao. Armando
