Continuing to document my gaming obsession . . .
Another great Hoplite battle - Cunaxa. Although Artaxerxes (Persian) is heavily favored over Cyrus (Rebel), the Persians only won by 28 RPs. Very interesting scenario with lots of different unit types: HI, LI, PH, HC, LC, MI, CH, PL, just about every type in the countermix.
My third Warfighter solitaire mission and third failure! It was a short Hostage Rescue by my two-man team, which didn't make it to the objective before time ran out. So I guess the Insurgents beheaded the hostages.
Solitaire 8-mission campaign of Hunters Over Korea, a print-n-play air campaign from Berserker Games. You can fly F-51s, F-80s, F-86s, F9F, F4Us or A-1s in airstrike, CAP, MiGCap & B-29 escort missions 1950-1953. My first campaign (flying F-80s) was a failure, but I had fun. Even got to attack a red Chinese airfield across the Yalu! Will try this again.
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.
