Continuing to document my gaming obsession . . .
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.
Liftoff (Task Force Games) a 1989 classic that I played a lot over 20 years ago. Played it for the 45th anniversary of the first moon landing. Many astronaut casualties on all sides caused us to quit after only getting to 1963. It was just taking to long.
Brawling Battleships - fun little card game with some WWI color. You play three sorties, winner is the player with the most VPs.
Hoplite (GMT) - Ephesus 498 BC - Greeks routed in three turns. Marathon 490 BC - Persians routed in three turns. Nice edition to the GBOH series.
Days of Battle:Golan Heights - This is a very clever Chadwick design. Different types of units have different combat sequences based on whether its a day or night turn. And Israel goes first in day turns, Syria in night turns. Add to that a handful of event cards that that can affect either player.
