I went back to my tried and true wargames: HPS's Panzer Campaigns. Close Combat was just too painfully slow for my liking. And it pales in comparison to Company of Heroes, obviously. So I am finishing up my AAR for MG44 I did 2 nights ago. I still enjoy the board game/counters look, even though it's on PC. I had MG44 back in 2005 but other games were calling me so it was mothballed for a long while.
Well, what's old is new, I…Continue

Little Round Top – 1700-1800 hours – ‘Race for the heights of Little Round Top!!!
This continues from my earlier report of the 1600-1700 turn (see here: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/985670/little-round-top-... ). As I noted there, a lot is happening on a tactical level so I’m writing this up based on hourly turns (which take me a week of…

My quest to have have the complete set of the Royalist & Roundheads system took another step closer today, making it 50% complete.
I doubt I will ever reach 100%, as some of the games in the system are VERY hard to come by, and what is available is very expensive: CRUSADES QUAD, CROSSBOWS AND CANON II & SWORD & SHIELD.
Have you any HOLY GRAILS that you are trying to complete?

I will raise a glass in memory of my Dad who took part in D-Day, serving on HMS Scylla, on this day 69 years ago.
And I will raise a glass to all the other brave people who took part in this operation, and to those who fell.
Little Round Top – 1600-1700 hours – ‘The devil’s work at The Devil’s Den’
I’ve begun my third scenario of GBACW – Three Days of Gettysburg. This time I’ve stepped it up a little more and am taking on the Little Round Top scenario. This scenario focuses on the Confederate attempt to roll up the Union left (southern flank) on 2 July, 1863, the second day of the Battle of Gettysburg.
Looking over the field, the CSA begins strong, but they have no reinforcements. They need to…
Played another game of this with my Dad.
I really like this game so much so I have bought another copy cheap…
As may be able to surmise from the photos I posted last night, I've rec'd, unpacked, punched, and played White Dog Games' "Red Menace" all in one evening.
The components are excellent; are those counters made out of wood? They're certainly thick enough. The play aids are printed on nice resume style card stock, although you'll quickly be copying/printing new ones since you need to write on them (although I simply used page protectors and dry-erase…Continue

I recently added a new article to the Line of Departure Online Features site. This is another military history project, and a pretty extensive one, dealing with Patton's campaign in Brittany immediately after the Normandy breakout. Long-planned, it was supposed to secure the port capacity of the…Continue

this is a new one for me:
Whilst I guess I was not contributing content to the actual discussion at hand and responding to the off topic (now deleted by poster) in the thread...7 days? niiice.
I get the message.
This year as an optional assignment for my political science class on peacebuilding and civil conflict, I gave my students the option of writing an interactive story rather than the usual research papers using Inklewriter. Four groups decided to do so, and the result is four online…Continue
