Eric,

 

Thanks for the tribute, to my War Room.  I wrote a column about war rooms in general and my war room in the most recent AHIKS Kommandeur newsletter.  I've been to the Imperial War Rooms in London, the SAC Underground at Offutt AFB, as well as the Combined Air Operations Center at Davis Monthan AFB.  My nephew got to sit in the same spot that Stalin sat in at the underground bunker in Stalingrad.  I got involved in war games when I was in Middle School (in the early 70s - I'm about the same age as you).  I even played wargames while going to college (at VMI).  I played war games until I got married - and then they took a back seat - I sold all my games.  Well, roll the tape forward to six years, ago.  I got diagnosed with Prostate Cancer (at age 46).  Having some time to kill while recovering from surgery, I got back into wargaming.  I joined the Avalon Hill International Kriegspiel Society (AHIKS) - AHIKS.com - which I am now the Vice President of - a great group of folks to play wargames with (by mail, email, etc.).

Dear Eric:  I will keep you guys posted.  My next purchase will be some hard copies of rules books for World in Flames and Days of Decision.  I hate downloading rules.  My printer is not really designed for heavy duty printing.  I like to have extra copies for the guys.  I know they can also print their own copies.  But I like to have some copies ready for newbies.  I have also pledged GMT's "Spanish Civil War", which should be shipping soon.

Dear Eric:  thought I left you a message a couple days ago.  But I did not see it post.  Anyway, thanks for the welcome.  I see you are from Norfolk, VA.  I have to get a picture of me uploaded soon.  I have just lost 50lbs on a special diet.  I want to have some "slim" pictures of me taken of me.  Than I will show myself.  I just bought "To the Green Fields Beyond" by Excalibre Games, I think it is an old SPI  reprint.  There is a Wargame store out here in the Wheaton area that is going out of business.  They offer 40-50% off on their remaining stock of games.  So I have been picking away at the deals. Strange enough a new store just has opened up not to far from me.  Dan G.

Greetings Eric:

 

Thanks for your warm welcome; I had been planning to join for some time but just never got around to it before.  So far as your very kind comments regarding my blog are concerned, I would be worse than churlish if I didn't thank you for recommending my sometimes eccentric scribblings.

 

Thanks Again and Best Regards, Joe

Hi Eric,

  Thanks for the warm welcome.  I will take a more in depth look at your page here and soak in all the information.  It is hard to find gamers around here that like the same games as I like to play.  Once a year I get the privilage to play with a good group of friends in Ohio.  We gather for our little 'Winterfest' as it's come to be known.  Tons of photos there, please check it out @ http://www.winterfestwargaming.com

 

Cheers


John

Hi!

I sometimes think I born 20 or 30 years late!

 

I love hexes and counter games, specially the oldies!

Thanks! I met Dan at Heat of Battle in New Orleans last year and bought the game in the spring. I then ran the game at the Heat of Battle this year. I do enjoy it and I'm still learning the rules! I am looking to find others that play. My table can handle the three map campaign game or 4 of the maps without Cherbourg.

Hi Eric! Thanks for welcoming me on this page!
Well, I would say that I like ASLSK most. Why? - It's because of the HUGE tactical decisions you can make. I think the order of squence of play is the key of ASL you are able to create tactical MASTERPLANS long before you try to make the best of it.
I GO YOU GO systems are of course tactical too, but I think there is MORE spontaneous reactions in gaming than strategic planing- because of the one by one unit activation.
Right now I am reading full ASL rules..... hope to start with the full system next year.

Hi,
Welcome to the Ici folder. Any play session with Ici recently?

Good Morning Colonel, that is some game and probably a lot closer to the real world than most people realize.

Hi Eric, thanks. Actually I have never played the advanced game. I only play the intermediate game, which is a lot of fun. Other games that I have enjoyed over the years are many of the old Avalon Hill wargames (Anzio, Panzer Leader, Panzer Blitz, and Civil War). The last one was really a Victory Games wargame that AH bought up, repackaged and sold.

HI and thanks for the welcome. The games I miss most are DAK and this Hallowed Ground. I spent many a hour playing them...Got away from boardgaming and got into computer games but ended up missing the board wargames. Theres something about looking at a great looking map while you spend time pondering your next move with fellow gamers.

Hi Eric! Thank You!

I have not actually played Storms of Steel as of yet, as I just ordered my copy and I am awaiting for it to arrive. I am really looking forward to playing it, and I will have to check out that Scenario. I am quite new to this hobby.

Hi Eric,

Thanks for the recommendation. I was actually reading about this game just a few minutes ago - it does look good. I will be in the UK for Christmas so I might pick up a game or two there, where more local shops mean the postage is cheaper. I am tempted by the Conflict of Heroes or Combat commander series. They look like good starting places too. Anyway, thank you for the welcome!

Hi Eric. Thanks for the message. ASL is where i've spent most of my wargaming experience--I am a WW2 nut and I think the game is a heck of a lot of fun. I've looked at some "easier" games (Memoir and Wings) to try to get my two sons into wargaming and away from the Xbox. Living in SW Virginia its a challenge to find FTF players and I am grooming them hard.

Hi Eric! Thanks for the kind message. I've lived in Japan about six years now. I'm in Beppu, Oita, which is on Kyushu. I teach English at a small local college. Say, were you stationed down in Okinawa? I've been down there once and it was great.

Glad to finally meet someone else who also enjoys Fields of Fire! Ben Hull made an amazing game - - even though I just watched my 2nd PLT HQ become a casualty on my very first turn this evening!
