The Mighty Macrons will rise again!
Unbelievable, finished the big Hoplite battle - Platea. Took around 17-18 hours for my buddy and me to finish it. OK, we do a little BS-ing while we play so that time estimate is rough. Both sides went over the Rout point after 13 turns. The Greeks went 16 RPs over vs. the Persians 17 RPs over. So Greece won by one RP! The Persian player routed all but 2 Spartan units. Whew! I'd call it even. It was a blast.
Two solitaire missions in Warfighter, which arrived last week. Both Jungle missions, both failed. Going to have to work on this one some more.
Finished a Vassal game of Gettysburg 150. Game is simple but an interesting Action Point command system. Liked it.
4 player Merchant of Venus from 1988. Very entertaining.
Flying Circus Deluxe campaign, Messines 1917. After 5 missions the Germans were 3-1-1, way ahead on points. Mission 6 the British cleared the sky of Albatroses (Albatri?) in a "vital" photo recon mission, scored 34 VPs to bring the campaign to a German Marginal Victory.
Two Hoplite battles. This game is so much fun. It's fast - we played both Tanagra and Delium in less than 4 hours, including setup. Both sides broke after three turns in Tanagra, but Athens had a 2 RP edge over the Spartans. Delium ended with the Thebans hitting the Athenians on the downhill slope, Athen broke by 13 RPs, or about the TQ value of one hoplite phalanx. Great hoplite action.
Another fun-time three-player Eclipse. Came in third. Need to go after those other races . . .
Finished a Manoeuvre (GMT) Vassal game 8-4 Prussians vs. Austrians. This works good on Vassal. Also another Hoplite, we played the Mycale Meeting Engagement, very hard fought action, the Persians routed but the Athenian-Spartan army only had 5 Route Points left. Very close.
