Many thanks, Eric.  Very kind of you.  I'm definitely looking forward to perusing the site.  A long time ConsimWorld follower, but now that I have a little extra time for gaming, I thought it was time to actually get on the forum.  Always fun to pull off an oldy but a goody from the shelf and PAA definitely fits the bill.  I'm really enjoying it.  Hope you have a blast with OST III, a friend and I are looking to get there soon working our way through I and II via PBEM.  Best regards.  -Alex

I love the OCS system.  Planning to spread out Beyond the Rhine when I make the space to add gaming table.  I haven't played CSS yet, so waiting with great anticipation for Fulda Gap to arrive.

Thanks for the Welcome Eric!   I needs some more plays with CoH 3rd edition, but it feel like there is a lot more die rolling for all of those spent checks!  So many games, so little time.   As far as ASL goes, I'm considering that a longer term learning process, having played several of the Starter kit scenarios, I'd like to graduate to full ASL as time allows.

Eric, thanks for the warm welcome!  I updated my profile, which addresses some of your questions.

Thanks, Eric! I've been absolutely transfixed by ToC since the first edition, and the second is a huge improvement. If you want to play it on Vassal, let me know.

There are seven impulses/sub-impulses (each one of which one could suppose are a day long) per TWW turns which are one week long.  Each Fleet hex accommodates three TWW hexes very closely.  About all I really change are the Fleet zones which are made symmetrical instead of irregularly shaped and which are then identical to the various theaters (Balkan et cetera) in TWW.  They are 32 TWW hexes in diameter.  So new maps are necessary, unless one would take a set of pencil crayons to the old maps.  The neat trick I realized in a moment of inspiration was to center the Fleet hexes on every second TWW hex.  I'll post up some images of this in a week or so.

Eric, I'm getting to the point where I have to force myself to not gallop after all the new and interesting games pouring into the market. Besides approaching the limits of storage I just don't have the time to invest in games, particularly those with an unfamiliar system. And of course there is the issue of what the local group wants to play. (Vassal sometimes works out well but sometimes not so much.)  After 6 decades of gaming I need to grow up and show some discipline, difficult as that will be. To paraphrase what I think is correctly attributed to Frederick the Great, "Who wants to play everything will play nothing very well".

Thanks Eric! I wish I had found this site sooner. I will definitely post my thoughts, in fact I'm up early today to work through more of the scenario book!

I should mention that I had to play these monster games by myself. Sigh. Not much has changed since my teens except now my wife and kids look at me funny when I go down to the basement to play with 'my games'.

Where do you live?

At 12:14pm on November 6, 2019, Michael Stultz said…

I retire next year. Thirty years in the Navy, your sister service. Only in my case, I will have approximately fourteen years of active service and fifteen or so years of reserve services. I started my career as active, then switched to the reserve side after eight years. I am currently attached to Military Sealift Command, but reside in Maine. 

Interesting parallel, I also teach as an adjunct professor at the University of Maine School of Law. I would prefer to be teaching full time so that I could devote more time to writing about conflict simulation design, as well as playing. Perhaps in a few years I will be able to switch to part-time along with teaching, so that I may pursue game development more seriously, which is my other area of interest.

Eric, I got into Panzer Grenadier early so now I've got about 3 lifetimes worth of scenarios to play. I'd at least like to make a small dent in that before my brainpower fades. And on Thursday I might get a playing of SpaceCorp in with a group of my colleagues on a business trip, in the evening after our daytime meeting. This may sound strange until I reveal that my business is Planetary Science and my colleagues are all NASA-funded Planetary Scientists gathering for a Venus advisory group!

Thank you, Eric.  Like you, I enjoy a variety of games, be they smaller faster games or monster games.  I started in this hobby over 40 years ago thanks to my mother and her purchase of the 1965 version of Avalon Hill’s Battle of the Bulge. I still have that game. I am blessed with a large old sea captain’s home that affords me the room for two large game tables. This luxury enables me to have two or three sometimes more games going at once depending on the game and availability of time.

Thanks for having me. Glad to be here.
