Hi, Eric,

Thanks for the compliment on my games!  Care to play anything via Vassal ?   Steve Dworschak

Eric

Thanks for the welcome. Sorry I could not reply sooner but the fact the MCEN network blocks this site it turning into quite a problem. Regarding my previous life as a wargamer, I played most of the Avalon Hill games (Afrika Korps, D-Day, Stalingrad, Anzio, Wooden Ships & Iron Men, Squad Leader, Panzerblitz, Jutland & even Tactics II), many SPI games (such as War in the East, a really outstanding post-WWII fighter combat game that I can't remember the name of, PRESTAGS series etc.) and even LaQuinta Games, whose "Ironclad" game was outstanding. There was a Napoleonic game you could play on the floor using counters provided or miniatures. I frequently had to play solitaire because it was so hard to find opponents and even harder to leave games set up over any period of time. I never got into computer games, however. I still have a few SPI games that I have not played in a long and time and have not inventoried so I can't give you a list yet.

I am looking forward to being a part of this community.

Thanks for the welcome Eric. I do hope to be able to find some people up here around DC to play ASL with. If I don't find people for some F2F games, I'll definitely be looking for some Vassal opponents.

Thanks for the welcome, Eric!  Must be interesting teaching there.  I was an NCO, so I've never been to there.  I started in the regular Army, but later transferred to the National Guard.  I was working on a Ph.D. in Soviet History at Georgetown, but after September 2001, the Guard had other things for me to do.

Thanks for the welcome. Hope to be able to find like minded folk and opponents around here.

Thanks for the welcoming comments Eric.  Excited to be a part of the group.

SF:AC was amazing for what they portrayed in such an elegant manner.  A fairly realistic 3D space map and an innovative way of using it.  And the background material was very unusual for the time as well.  I really enjoyed Outreach just for the sheer scale of the project, and with a bit of rules tweaking some other fans have done over the years, it's quite enjoyable.  I made a Cyberboard module for it nearly a decade ago, so I could always get back to the unending game when I felt the desire to do so.

I got my Kickstarter copy of T5 a couple of weeks ago, and it is packed with so many options it's nearly mind-boggling.  The 650+ page book has very little setting to it, but if you ever wanted an updated Traveller Toolkit, T5 is it!  Looking forward to the upcoming Player's Book as well, just to see what Marc thinks is really important.  Did you ever consider buying FFE's CD collections of the old Traveller system books?

Yeah, that desert thingy is a bit of an obstacle. I did my sailing in Iowa (lake racing scows) and in Philly (505's). Just not in that season of life right now, but it'll never leave me.

Lindenau: Its unique in that the French enter battle by traveling a long narrow road over virtually impassable swamp. Once off the road they have good reason to cluster about Lindenau so they might not maneuver like typical French. This may mean the battle will follow an Austrian cadence for a change. Pay attention to the Austrian deployment tips offered in the special rules. I do not use the Martial rules, but a personal blend of Regs XXII & XXX.

I've only recently been playing miniatures.. dabbling, really. No time or patience to paint or assemble. I enjoy monster games but trying to carve a weekend and assemble two teams has been daunting. I enjoy World in Flames as such but it turns to be three or four years before I can assemble crowd from gamers scattered around the States. Same fpor Gamers OCS Series. I've  played Hells Highway a few times. It never Snows looks good as well. So when and where is your Winter Offensive? Tidewater is not too far to go for some dedicated gaming.

At 5:45pm on January 27, 2013, Tom Woloszyn said…

I just opened It Never Snows. Actually I've been thinking of starting Hells Highway (again). I have a fascination for airborne games having served in the 82d in almost ever grade and two tours. I am considering going to PREZCON. Haven't been to a tournament in years.

Actually, I'm only here trying to find a way to contact David Bolt, my old phone #s don't seem to work, and no answer to email.

Hi Eric! Takes one to know one!  :-)  I've been a member of the Forum for a long time but only now took the plunge on the hi-falootin' Social side. In fact, I didn't realize till last nite that I needed a separate 'membership.' I'm a little intimidated. I'm not a whiz-bang technical guy like all the 'kids' that work for me. But I'm lookin' forward to diving in. My boardgaming is primarily solo. I play for relaxation and for learning; usually in conjunction with a book I'm reading.  I play miniatures with a diverse group of characters from around the Severn-Columbia area. I usually attend all 3 major HMGS Conventions but unfortunately missed this past Historicon. Only the 2nd time that's happened since it's inception. I go back to the days when the miniatures conventions were at New Carrolton.

That's excellent about handing out Sabin.

In my shop, the fact that manual sims are cheap seems to be a winning argument.

Great Small Wars article on gaming COIN and black boxes. We seem to be continuing the same debate today, based on my brief attendance of Connections at NDU this past week. vfr

Hi! Thanks for the welcome! Makes sense about a COIN Series page here on social, since there are only individual game pages among different folders on CSW now. I guess I'll have to figure out how to create a page...

Thanks, Eric.  It sounds like you know more than I do about Traveller 5!

Thanks Eric,

yes I like big bad games!

Infact in ASL i like mostly Campaign Games.

Sadly the time to play is getting shorter but the internet is good way to compensate this.

Eric, Thanks for the warm welcome. It seems we both have a passion for naval wargames. Maybe we could hook up someday. Indeed the Leyte Gulf game made by Avalanche is a monster game in itself and looks daunting. We could probably break it down in to smaller manageable scenarios including Admiral Hasleys decision to leave San Bernardino Strait unguarded for Admiral Kurita surface battlegroup to pass through. Anyway I am glad to be in good company. I still have my 1:700 collection intact. You could view them in my facebook account.  Glad to meet you. Thanks for the adding to the group.

Thank you for your message which took me more than a year to reply !!!

In fact, I'm more on BGG and a French wargame forum (Strategikon).

Anyway your photos are nice and I'll try to come back more often...

My favorite ATS title is Berlin Red Victory; it's just too cool to fight it out downtown.  Stonne is great, so is Dark December.  I also like playing ASL scenarios using ATS rules.  I love the Gamers CWB series and so I have all of them.  The battlefields that I go back to frequently are Sharpsburg, Gettysburg, Wilderness etc.  I spent 3 years in Fredericksburg when I retired from the Navy. 

Olustee is a cool field as well.  Down here in Florida it's the biggest we have.  Would love to game FTF with you someday!

 

I used to reenact at Bentonville years ago.  It is a beautiful field.
