Hooked up for a game of Jena 20 on VASSAL last night. This is a small, tidy quick game published by Victory Point Games. Many of the Napoleonic 20 titles are being consolidated and released by GMT in a nice new format where you get 4 titles in the N20 series per box and GMT quality. Fading Glory is the first such title which I have pre ordered.

Today, the paper looks back at Canada's long war in the country, as the Canadian combat role comes to an end. The result is one of the best articles that…Continue

I have started another AAR on my blog this time dealing with Panzer Campaigns Salerno…Continue

Well, for those of you waiting for Episode 48 to come out, good news! I should have more material after this weekend!
Yep, it's time for that invasion of multiplayer gaming goodness that is known as Pseudocon. The few and the proud who have been able to make it to P-con know (and may have been disappointed to learn) that, honestly, it's more about the multiplayer than it is about the wargame. Lots of light gaming, some euros, more hybrids, but very few wargames actually make…Continue

^^ Vassal AAR
You can read the majority of this post at the link above since I do not want a lengthy post hogging the front page of ConSim Social. Major steps ahead for me as I learn and make some headway in the game I am playing. I have managed to destroy a good chunk of Soviet armor with well placed STUG shots and my infantry has for the most part rallied…Continue

whenever there is local military action in the arab world,i'm stunned to see the katyusha rocket seen in this photo from about 48 hours ago in Libya.
so the katusha and stg44-a late war model automatic weapon reborn as AK-47 in 1947 are incredibly long lasting designs. what weapons in any of today's "armies" are you suprised to still see in use?

At last i have finally secured a copy of this game. It is one of a few games which I am keen to own, and luckily this copy looks in pretty good condition (going by the image on Ebay).
My search continues for the remaining game on my "to get" list, but at least there is one less now.

Howdy everyone, I have been asked a few times if an introductory version of Outlaws: Adventures in the Old West could be created – well here it is: a new game board, four new characters and three new scenarios.
Find all you need here:
If you later decide to print and play the full game these components can be used to expand the core game.
