Winterfest XV: 2012

I'm just back from another long week of playing big games with a gang of friends in Sandusky. This year we went back to the game series that brought us together, GDW's Europa. We used some made-up OBs to put together a combined East-West Front 1944 scenario. The West and South went pretty well, the East had a lot of problems with some players used to using their own home-brew rules and a wonky OB.

Other games on hand were: Downtown (I taught 2 rookies),…

Get Well Anthony Hicks - I wish you a speedy recovery

Through Facebook, I found out that Anthony has had a Stent implant.

I thought I would write this as a message of support for him, and hope he recover fully and quickly.

All the best mate.

WWII Supply Rules

I am toying with ideas for better supply rules for WWII divisonal level computer game.


The concept so far;

Units need supply points (SPs) to move or attack at full strength, or to use artillery in any capacity.

Armies have a limited pool of supply movement points (SPMs).

   e.g. a 100 SPMs could move 10 Sps 10 hexes or 5 twenty

   Option - SPMs suffer attrition depending on utilization rate.

Supplies are delivered at the instant of movemnt…

OCS vassal tutorial

Some of the guys asked me last night if I would be interested in doing a live vassal OCS tutorial.  I think it would be a blast and maybe even worth doing more than once.

How many of you would be interested?

Member location

I typically get a lot of requests of members asking where they can go to find members that may live near them. My answer is you can try a search under our MEMBERS tab area, which will work so long as the member entered their location in a way you are actively searching. Another option is to click on the MAP tab and see who shows up in your general vicinity.

If you all haven't had the chance yet, I highly recommend you spend a few seconds to click on the MAP tab and edit…

Blogs as best means of communicating here

Know what?

I think I'm sold on this as being the best feature here.

Yeah, it's not as segmented and focused as the groups - but I see blog posts as at least as

strong a means of communicating here as are the fora. Biggest bonus? they show up in the

'latest activity' stream - which is more accessible to my understanding than individual threads

for discussions.

Investigating Axis Empires

This one's been hell on me so far.

The rules are presented in such a different format from what I've seen, 

and though they seem complete (maybe?) are pared down to a minimum of

repetition (usually a good thing). But, without extensive cross referencing 

(nor even an index) it's very difficult to find out what links with what -

and the format makes them just not stick in my head, in terms of where

to bother looking.

Learning by campaigning (OCS GBII) - 1

After the discovery of the OCS system with Burma and following a very good experience with Baltic Gap, I decided to give a try at Guderian's Blitzkrieg II.

I picked the campaign scenario starting 1st October 1941, sorted the units, clipped them, built an extension to my gaming table so everything can fit and I started the setup.

Of course I am not trying to play the whole campaign. It will be mainly a solo experience, for a couple of turns, in an attempt to grasp the…

Stonewall’s Masterpiece – A Review of Shenandoah: Jackson’s Valley Campaign

My review of the latest Columbia fog of war block game, Shenandoah, is up over at The Gaming Gang. Overall, I really like the game but the pricing is a bit high IMO.

Warriors of God: my thoughts

Yesterday I managed to play a complete game of Warriors of God with my wargame-buddy Luca.

Actually, we played two times before, in a game club, but we could not get to the last turn before the closing time...

I played the English, Luca played the French. I won on points (four or five, I don't rememeber exactly).

We had a very good time. Probably WoG is the most enjoyable wargame I have ever played.

There's a lot of narrative, a lot of twists. The leader death phase is…
