"Yesterday I attended the funeral of my great uncle, (Capt.) Lauri Koski, USAAF, who flew 51 missions (copilot and pilot, I believe) in a B-17 with the 49th Bomb Squadron, 2nd Bomb Group, 5th Bomb Wing, 15th Air Force, receiving two DFCs along the…"
"Not exactly--he's revisited a lot of the same battles (although I'm not sure about Ardennes, which was the very first), but they would probably be a lot bigger. I don't believe there were 11 full Talonsoft Battleground series games,…"
"I've only ever played the actual Talonsoft versions of the Battleground series, not the remakes/refurbished versions Matrix has put out. They were good for their day, although generally smaller than the versions of the game John Tiller's…"
thank you Scott, and glad to see you on CSW. Right now I am editing my video for Thunderstone: Dragonspire for BGG, but after this fantasy break I'll be back to historical wargames. Next down the pipeline is the video for an obscure French game about Richard III... I hope I can help giving it some more visibility!! Best,
Went to Spring Maneuvers in Lawrence, KS yesterday (only made the morning session--was feeling a bit rocky in the afternoon/evening). Played in a game of DVG's Modern Naval Battles--think we messed up some rules, but had a good time. Watched in amazement as the Soviets/Russians delivered a massive Backfire strike on the American fleet (I was Taiwan, hoping they wouldn't notice me!) in the first Russian turn, wiping out all but one ship. (Needless to say, the Russkies won the game, more than tripling my score).
Next is a one-on-one Saturday playing through as many of the rest of the Conflict of Heroes firefights as we can get through, then hopefully a beginner's game of ASKSK at March Madness in KC.
I had access to this social site up until a week ago, then lost it. Figure some overachiever killed access.
Dan Best and I have copies of the rule book and SK's, so before you go ordering and paying shipping etc. Check with us and maybe we'll have it at a price you like. I try to keep ASLSK's on hand for newcomers since MMP can't seem to keep them in stock.
Seeing Panzer Blitz in a "men's gifts" section at a department store and thinking it was full of little tanks it was so heavy, and then finally getting either Ogre or StarForce Alpha Centauri (can't remember which I got first)
