Play "The desert fox" but mini game.
This game is a "sixangles" version.It is a game attached for the introduction.
The scenario is "Operation Crusader".
It is completely defeated though it is seen a very easy game if making a mistake by one.
It is certain like the mini game for the expert game player.…Continue

Well, it's the end of January and I'm working on my resolutions. The two that affect my wargaming life are as follows:
1. New podcast each month (check! - Episode 43 of Point 2 Point is available at point2point.libsyn.com) - And I'm well along in working on ep 44 for February - a good news segment, some good feedback, playing some games...
2. Learn a new game each month - And I've learned TWO! Caesar XL, which I'll talk about after I finish my PBEM game with…Continue

This weekend's edition of WSJ had this article that I simply had to share--you can read it online here.
One of the more interesting segments of the piece--which is really aimed at videogamers--was something I thought applied to board wargames as well. The article argues that gaming provides four major experiences that, according to author Jane…Continue

I am really enjoying this game, certainly more on the "squad" level than Battalion, but I am still learning but I have passed the steep curve and I am on the home straight!
And I may be wrong on this, but there are over 170 scenarios to play. The campaigns must be massive!
While the time and venue of WINTER OFFENSIVE this year was much as previous ones, this event was just a little bit different. For one, while this convention/tournament was always predominately about ADVANCED SQUAD LEADER (ASL for ALS fundraising), this year it seemed that ASL dominated even more than usual. Last year there were a lot of non ASL games going on, but this year there weren't quite as many. That…Continue

At the moment I am learning John Tillers Campaign Series computer game and I seriously want to have a crack at Hearts of Iron, but I do want to start up a new board game too. Since I play solo, i have to decide myself what to play, and this can be a very long and agonising process....lol.
How do you decide what game to play next, board or computer (assuming it is not a new one, and one from your existing stash), and does anything influence you, like films, documentaries, books…Continue

It is certain that it is a game that can be called a present starting point though this game is a very old game.However, obtaining this game is impossible, and it is aspiring the resale now.
The rule of this game holds some faults.It might be a feature of a certain meaning and this game.
I am surprised at the game system more than expecting that the fighting chance is installed there are a lot of game players who do not know this game at all either.
Jason flies solo for this new episode of P2P. He talks about a number of games including: Hellenes, Hearts and Minds, Command and Colors Ancients, Combat Commander Pacific, and Asia Engulfed, among others. He also gives his current top ten list and his hot ten list. He introduces some new segments, including a pre-order of the month. This month he focuses on GMT's first design in the Fighting Formations series, a game focused on the Grossdeutschland Division. After the credits, you are…Continue
I posted this as I am curious to find out if anyone is willing to say what their other hobbies/pastimes are, if they have any.
Wargaming is a hobby to me, even though there are some who see it as way of life, but I also have other interests, most of which I never seem to have enough hours in the day to do them.
Board Wargaming - I love to play board games, but wargames are definitely the type I always want to play.
started STALINGRAD as the axis
may? have another waiting in the wings
afrika korps to start soon
battle for germany scenario once i learn the rules
Since the New year, i have spent more time playing computer games rather than board games. This is something that was not intentional, I just happen to come across my copy of Axis and Allies on my hard drive, and decided once and for all i would play it. And I must admit, I did enjoy it, even though it is simplistic in nature and reminds me of Risk, but with air and sea power added to it, it is a very fun strategy game to play.
After a few games, i thought it would be good to play…Continue

I've seen a recurring thread in some postings, both here and elsewhere, over the years about how wargaming seems to be migrating further and further towards these kinds of games. I can't recall where I first read it, but some grognard appended the label of "history lite" to these designs. Is it an accurate appellation?
I like a lot of these kinds of games, but then again I don't expect the same depth of insight from them as I do games using more traditional design methods. But…Continue
Okay...I'm working on it.
A couple of updates:
1. I've edited through my top ten list and my hot ten (had a fairly significant mistake in that one, but I'm leaving it).
2. Still some significant updating to do:
a. I have a pre-order of the month, but, after I recorded, I learned some signficant things about that pre-order game. I need to re-record a significant portion of that preview.
b. The "Extra Point" segment is a go, but I'm…Continue
