"In case it isn't clear, I am answering Bob's question, not Thomas' comment. Thomas and I agree on this - not much help there for the newer game system."

Russ Gifford commented on Brian Blad's group Great Battles of the American Civil War
"Well, not really. I mean, concepts are slightly there: facing, LOS, leadership in general, ranged fire, etc  - but the core of the game is the orders and commitment efforts, and that just is not there. I know, I should. But..."

Russ Gifford replied to Eric Walters's discussion Timeless Avalon Hill Games in the group All That is Avalon Hill
"This is the game that allowed me to survive the loss of SPI. When I went from the classics to SPI, it was a step into wonder. I could not go back to BB '65 and the others. (Only Anzio never lost its luster when I went to SPI - perhaps because…"

About Me
I've been gaming more than 30... hmmm, more than 35 years, hmmm, ok, I guess this is 40 years. OK. That's enough of that conversation!

I have created audio and video training videos for my favorite wargame series': ASL and GBACW. (http://www.russgifford.net/asl_training.htm)
Personal Interests (favorite activities, movies, shows, books, music, etc.)
Reading, programming, etc.

OK - back in Nebraska. I have the time to play most evenings starting in December, and occasional weekends. I will be available Mon-Thurs evenings in Council Bluffs, and Saturdays in Siouxland.... looking for players for or SPI games, or ASL, and I have the room to leave the games up and undisturbed. So let me know!

Sorry I just saw this. I hardly ever check CSW. I am going through a bit of a life transition as I am going to I retire soon, so that is my primary focus. I will get the itch to play again after I secure a follow on job.

count me in...please notice the downloads for old S and T's on various websites....free and good to notice to others. I actually worked alongside S and T staffers during the golden years at their east 23 rd street offices including Dunnigan...fascinating men all...

Hey Russ,

 

Do you know where I can find a list of all the GBACW counters that have been included in issues of C3i?

Thanks for the invite. Metro Wargamers in Brooklyn used to have TSS set up in their club. I recently heard someone tell me that Ed (big ACW gamer) had pasted away. Did you know any of those members? It would be nice to get a monster GMT ACW game going monthly. What does the summer look like for you? Dead of Winter possibly?
