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.

I just got done playing  Autumn Mist a few days ago, have the second scenario half way set up and should be diving in next week.  I feel like PG really hits a sweet spot of being extremely accessible and playable while remaining old school and covering a lot of possibilities during WW2.

ATS is sort of an odd one for me to have listed.  I played a few solo games from the intro sets (the intro 4 page rulebook and the 20 page second tier they had).  I enjoyed what I played and thought it could really work as my crunchy-but-not-ASL-crunchy WW2 tactical game.  Unfortunately I haven't really played it since, but I'm back to reading the rules now and hope to at least get a small Darkest December scenario or two in (always heard that was a good starter box).

The ATS sets that intrigues me the most are Berlin and the new Ponyri Station.  But I also have orders in for the new Ammo Box TT set (Omaha West/Prok Chop Hill/Darkest December reprint/Battle of the Bulge).  Anyway, always good to hear from fellow ATSers.   

I definitely enjoy Conflict of Heroes, will probably try Lock and Load at some point, and have even gotten in a few games of CC:Europe and Fighting Formations.  Seems like a great time to be a war gamer.

hey Eric, could you do me a favor and 'Friend" Michelle Louise Hineline ? She's sadly bereft of friends.  -Daniel

You ordered/paid for a copy of the game 'Total War' some time ago. Game will ship soon, but we have no valid shipping address for you. Last address on record was for FPO but letter to their was returned as undeliverable. Last email address we have for you no longer works.  Please contact me at arthurgoodwin@netscape.com.

Best Regards,

Thanks for the welcome, Eric. Yes, just really getting into wargaming, at this point. Have always had a fascination with maps, charts, diagrams and battle movements.

Hi Eric,

 

Thanks for the greeting... I will never be retired, lots of family obligations.

Your name rings a big bell... I don't think we have ever met... but Semper FI bro!

Drum is a little chillier than I was used to in Cali, but at least it is near Ottawa, ON where I grew up.  When we are not prepping for deployment, I am fully engaged in finding gamers in the North Country to game with until my eventual return to Livermore, CA where the opponents are thick on the ground and I plan to follow your example and boost those gaming hours as much as possible.

Thanks for the welcome message Eric.

Well, I did all I could to try Napoleonics, ACW games, etc I heeded advices that would point me to obscure conflicts and other historical eras but the impelling fascination for the Eastern theater always brought me back to the Ostfront.

I actually spend more time these days dabbling into graphics and maps...

Thanks Eric.  I love ASL but haven't played it in so long that I'd be hard-pressed to conduct a mistake-free Prep Fire Phase!
