Tim Allen replied to John Kranz's discussion What are you playing?
"I liked Villainous Vikings too.  Were you playing the original or the second version? I made up a larger version of the Villainous Vikings map, because I wanted room for the cards.  You can downloaded it off BGG if you like."

"I am afraid I dont know how you would do that in GIMP, but in Photoshop you would do it by taking a basic round brush and changing its attrubutles so it scatters.  then add a pattern"

About Me
I've been gaming since around 1977. The first real wargame I owned was PanzerBlitz. The first game I bought was Fortress Europa. These days I play mostly light wargames or Euros. Plus I've started doing a bit of map design for Vicotory Point Games.
Personal Interests (favorite activities, movies, shows, books, music, etc.)
My other hobby is building paper card models. Its taking up a fair amount of my "game" time these days.

Favorite movies (in no particular order): The Right Stuff. Casablanca. The Rock. Con Air.

Most Expensive Game

I have seen this question before but I am still curious to see what people say:

 

What is the most $ you have ever payed for a game?

 

For me, I think it was for the 4th ed. of The Russian Campaign.  I got it from a brick-and-mortor store shortly after it came out, and IIRC it totalled after taxes to about $120 CDN.  Not a huge amount by todays standards, but that was around 6 years ago or so.  But based on the number of times I have played it, it was worth every…
