I am looking for wargamers in my local area (Burke VA) and am sending notes to a few people who appear close on CONSIM.

I used to play wargames a lot in the glory days of SPI-Avalon Hill… but work and family forced me to put further playing off for a few decades (57 years old now).  I am looking for two things.

-          I teach at the Marine Corps War College and I plan to use a few games in the classroom.  I need some folks who will help explain some of the new games that I am not yet familiar with (Polis, For the People, Washington’s War, Fire in the Lake, Churchill, and a few others)


-          Persons interested in getting together on a regular or semi-regular basis for friendly games.


It would be great to link up with folks who would also enjoy having a football game on in the background (once in awhile) .

If anyone is part of a regular group and is looking for a new member (I will bring cupcakes) please let me know.  Also, if anyone is interested in forming a group (rotating play between homes) I am also interested.

I can be contacted at

Thank you for your time and attention.

Rich -- besides MailSteward, what's that other email utility program you use alongside Apple Mail? I recall you showing me two different applications, but I can't remember the second one. I'm trying to find a better way to manage/archive emails.

Okay, what changed this time?

Ooops! I blogged all over the place on my page.

Feel free to bitch about it over there!

What are you doing in Homestead AFB?

Please pick an answer that the District Attorney can't use!

Rich, are you still over at The Pentagon? I'm assuming so given the stature of the engagement.

I would have loved it. Wish I could have been there. Am still waiting for MY COPY of DEVIL'S CAULDRON to make it's way here. Last I saw on the Forum in Consimworld, some copies have been spotted on doorstoops in Seattle, even in Sushi restaurants, while the rest of us hold our collective breaths...sigh.

Rich -- how does Devil's Cauldron look? I read that you picked it up at Prezcon. You've got a great gaming area to set it up!

I had a moment of weakness and joined the Avalanche Press GOld Club at a local Con last weekend. I picked up PG Desert Rats, then went home and saw that I have two Afrika Corps on the shelf! I think the second is from a 'black box' sale. I also got the Malaya game, pricey, but looks really cool and an interesting topic to me. For my freebie (but two get one) I got Queen of the Celts - with the good cover. Two hours later I went back and bought the GWAS Zeppelins book that has rules, articles, and counters.

Oh, I also played defiant russia, which is as advertised, basic rules and fast playing.

18 players for DIF for PrezCon? I sure wish I had been there...sigh. Ah, well...there's always next year!

Thanks for the invite Rich! This looks like it will be a good place, still have to figure it out though, never was a big "myspace" fan, but I can deal with that sort of thing amongst a bunch of fellow consimers. Now to find a suitable pic.

I'm still no good at PANZER GRENADIER!

Rich, you da man. Is that your one consim victory you keep reminiscing about?
At 12:09pm on February 27, 2008, John Kranz said…
aha...tricked you on that intro to gaming question, did I? Yup, you may want to update your profile.

Looks like Prezcon was a blast, Rich. Glad you got to take a break from work-duties!
