To punch or not to punch?

I received Bloody Kasserine & Race for Tunis today (yes, another copy of Race for Tunis, got it at a good deal when I bought Bloody Kasserine), and both games are in absolute mint condition and unpunched.
The dilemma is that I want to play Bloody Kasserine on it's own and combine it to the Race for Tunis game to make one big campaign, but this means punching out the counters etc.

I am playing Race for Tunis at the moment, as it is a game I bought from ebay, and I find it a fantastic game to play.

Shipping Charges are a disgrace

I went on the Avalanche Press website and I was looking to buy Bitter Victory which is one of their quick play games, similar to Alsace 1945 which I bought off ebay.


The game itself cost $19.99, but to ship it to the UK, they want $24.95!!!!!!


I maybe missing some point here (and if I am please let me know), but I have had games shipped to me (from ebay sellers)vfrom the US that are bigger and heavier than this game and it cost half the price for…

New games arrived

I have just taken delivery of Alsace 1945 (Avalanche press) and The Last Blitzkrieg (3W) from an ebay seller. Both games are in excellent condition and look to be be great addition to my ever growing games collection.

Has anyone ever played these games, if so, what was your verdict on them?
