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.

Wings for the Baron - (Innovation and Profiteering Among the German Aircraft Industries During World War I):An unusual topic, but our group enjoyed our first playing. The Halberstadt firm was able to squirrel away enough gold to win, as the German economy collapsed into hyper-inflation when the war ended. Pfalz and Fokker fielded better performing fighters, but lost too many paper Marks though inflation! Interesting and fun.

Platoon Commander: Korea 1950 - Task Force Lynch. The American breakout from the Pusan Perimeter. After neutralizing the NKPA force blocking the river crossing, the American player thought he could drive straight though the village of "Suchon". A T34 platoon and infantry platoon (above) stalled the advance long enough to prevent an American victory.

First game of 2017! Played a Christmas present game of Star Wars:Rebellion with my son. In the last turn, the Empire massed ground forces and space forces (including a Death Star) under Admiral Piett at Geonosis for an assault on Ryloth (suspected Rebel base-upper right in photo). The Rebel fleet took a pasting but after the first Space Combat round, a surviving X-wing fighter unit,  commanded by Wedge Antilles, playing the Death Star Plans objective card, destroyed the Death Star. Game over - Rebel victory! Just like in the movies. What more could you want?
