Thanks for checking, Barry. Now back to your regularly-scheduled gaming session.

Looks like I'm missing G2 and G10 - from the Germans, go figure. That's assuming each side has 10 cards

Oh, Baaarrrryyyyyy... you gonna reply to my April 2nd message to you regarding the 1914 cards you are looking for? Hmmmmm?

oh oh; I knew there was something I needed to be doing. Sounds like an incentive to me for sure.

Hi, Barry. I just checked with my brother and he does have those game variation (option) cards for 1914. Do you happen to know which ones you are missing?

Barry, would you send me back your address? I know i brought it back, but it's not in the game I thought it was.

I figure if Woody comes to Montreal, everybody should ;-)

I work in finance, great anglo-saxon capitalistic tradition. I work when I want ;-) Off course, I'm not paid when i don't work but that is a different story lol

Perhaps, but it's only for a few days around the weekend. CSW Expo will kill most of my summer time days off. We don't have that great French vacation ethic!

Getting your French mags ready to ship... So Montreal Jazz Fest, is it? ;-)

Even Woody Allen will show up for the event.

Oh the system is really something. I do lots of playtests CBs these days - in fact that is usually the lion's share of my work. I have another update to do for PQ-17 soon, like within the next couple of weeks. Could certainly get you in the playtest if you like.

My CB work really jump started Here I Stand and Triumph of Chaos. I suspect it did the same for Shifting Sands, but I don't follow that community. Now I did get Decision Games to warm up to CB stuff when I did the "Nine Navies" CB kit. Maybe "the company that shall remain nameless" could be brought along as well. There stuff would do well in CB format. Now I have a French kit of one of their naval games (GWAS - Med) that is real nice.

The reminds me - I will have to show you an idea I had about doing away with those hit record charts. Since I don't play the WW2 versions of WAS, I have no idea what records come with planes and such, but my idea seems to work well with GWAS. One of the problems with CB implementations of GWAS would be the large number of records that need to be kept. I think I figured out how to do it. Since CB is not supported, I've not really done much with my idea except file it away. Well, that and no around me plays naval games. This CSW social net may have opened a new world :)

I took a look at PQ-17. Should be interesting to see how the system works. We should talk when you have time. GMT's lucky to have you developing their CB gamebox. Seems such play aids are becoming the norm and a necessary ingredient to a game's long-term success. Too bad a certain publisher we know of still hesitates to embrace this truth. R

Yes, must have been some time in the 2006's.

I still have a copy of the old AH Miday. The piece for the IJN cruiser Tone still has tooth marks in it from a high school opponent who got a bit frustrated during one of our games.
If you like naval games and aren't familiar with the double-blind search spreadsheet I prototyped and my friend Jim Stear programmed, we should talk some time. It allows players to have a non-umpired game in which you've got true limited intelligence. It supports air searches, coast watchers, etc. And sometimes a fleet may be spotted and not even know.

Hi Barry. Didn't know you liked naval games too. You might recall that I helped you with card scans for your excellent Shifting Sands Cyberboard gamebox.
Best, Russ

Actually, my brother owns 1914 and he lives in Jacksonville, FL. I will ask him, though, if I could get a copy of the cards you are interested in.

Go for it !!! Montreal is a big festival party from the Jazz Fest till the film fest (end of August)... So many things to see... Old city is worth it too... Anyways, I'll help you around for sure ;-)
