Playing Field Commander: Rommel & Hornet Leader

I've been playing a lot of FC: Rommel lately. I purchased it along with FC: Alexander, but I am focusing on Rommel for now. I've really enjoyed it so far. I've played the first campaign quite a few times now, and I've really gotten a feel for it.



In my last game, I only managed to score 19 points, but I'm getting a little better every time. I'm really digging this series, and I am pleased to hear that more FC games are on the way.



My boys in Hornet Leader made it through… Continue

Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more

I've dallied with war gaming before, but now I am going off the deep end. I have just ordered Field Commander: Alexander, Field Commander: Rommel, Fields of Fire, Silent War, and a pack of GMT counter trays from wargamedepot.com. I think I'm off to a good start.



There's not many war gamers in our group, so I'm going heavy into the solitaire games. I've always enjoyed solitaire gaming any how. I think I picked some damned fine ones to start with. I'm also on the lookout for the… Continue
