This past Saturday our group played "Spheres of Influence" by Little Nuke Games. The East Asia faction came from behind to win, dominating Japan, China, Russia and India. A quick-playing world war game in a Euro format.
Finished World War I (S&T 294). There's a lot more to this updated game than the older 1975 original. Takes a while to play, but by the end of 1917 we agreed it would pretty much end with an "Exhaustive Victory" for the Allies. That's WWI for you. The Brits overran the Middle East, the Ottomans were teetering on surrender, Russia was ready to collapse and the Limeys landed a tank army in the Balkans. Italy stayed neutral! Pretty good experience!
2017 CSW Expo:
Played Fall of the Third Reich a couple of times. Trying to figure out why the Allies always seem to be able to bring down the Reich (above) before 1945. Also a Blue Cross White Ensign battle. About four Wing Leader scenarios. And a couple Villiainous Vikings! I actually shot down five guys in Down in Flames. Bought Horse & Musket and won a copy of Battle of the Atlantic (solitaire) as a quarter-finalist in the Strike Force tournament. Finally, my two room mates and I all won breakfast door prizes on the same day! Mine was Gem Rush - which we also actually played. Fun time.
Four-player Genesis. We didn't have time to finish the final turn, but when we had to break it up, the Hittites were barely hanging on to the lead by a point, after surviving assaults from the Egyptian-Babylonian alliance. Plagues, greedy priests, rebellions, good time!
The end of Gauntlet, from S&T 190. The Chicoms didn't make it to Pyong'yang, but got close. Pretty much outflanked the UN on the right. A hard-fought draw.
Flying Colors - Cape Henry 1781. Some ships got dismasted, some got set on fire. Boom.
Annual Game Weekend in Cedar Rapids. From the top:
Silver Bayonet - Battle of LZ Mary (Broken Arrow)
Star Trek Ascendency - Romulans on the move.
Wing Leader - B24s pounding Wewak.
Wing Leader - B17s.
Milton Bradley day for our game group! Re-visited some of the old classic wargames from our youth. Dogfight (1963) top. Carrier Strike (1987) 2nd. Screaming Eagles (1987) 3rd. Hit the Beach (1965) last. I had never played Hit the Beach before or even seen it, and I was impressed by the concept: up to 4 players compete as US Army, Marine and supporting forces to reach the Japanese HQ at the center of the island. Lots of fun.
Enjoyed our play of Wings for the Baron. As head of Fokker, I appreciate that your (Pfalz) and our planes were of much better quality than Halberstadt. I tried to tell Bill (err... I mean Kaiser Wilhelm) that he ought to have bought more of ours and less of Joe's.
