Canvas Temple Publishing

It's been a while since I logged into the CSW Social site. Thought I'd take this opportunity to post about my new endeavor, Canvas Temple Publishing. Essentially it's a low-key vanity press for me and some friends to publish games we want to publish (rather than what anyone else wants :-). A number of friends have signed up and given me designs, and so far we've run 3 successful Kickstarter campaigns, with another running right now.

Our first game, which is now shipping, is…

Guadalajara SCS game

Hi All,

A while ago I thought it might be fun to take all the SCS games I have on Vassal and play them as one continuous campaign.

I will play every scenario, starting with those in Guadalajara and continue in chronological order right up to the last scenario of Bastogne. All scenario results will be kept, keeping a sort of "running score" of Axis and Allied progress up to the end of WW2.

Each scenario will also be posted on this blog as a "War Diary", taking the form of…

Aegean Strike

Ieri sera, seconda sessione dedicata al titolo Aegean strike - Victory Games; titolo datato ma sempre una chicca per ogni grognards!

Sono riuscito a piazzarlo grazie all'amico Luigi F., che ama come me le simulazioni dedicate agli anni '80, Nato vs Patto di Varsavia.

La simulazione è complessa; complessa specie nella sequenza di gioco che obbliga, perlomeno affrontando il gioco per la prima volta, a continue letture delle varie parti del regolamento.

Difficile capire, al…

La Bataille d'Albuera

Despite the old counters, La Bataille d'Albuera has the potential to serve as a good introduction to the La Bataille series.

Here's the full video of my recent playthrough:



There are only a small number of specific rules, and they're easy to implement. It's also a relatively easy battle to manage, consisting of just the…
