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!

Eric, ToS does deserve a redo. only problem with the game is the amount of time required to invest in its playing. Barbarossa, the WaW 1 remake is my 2nd favorite EF game followed closely by No Retreat.

Thanks for the welcome, Eric.
My favorite Operation Crusader is the big one with the column counters for fog of war.
Now I remembered two more favorite wargames;
White Death from GDW and David Bolt's Gazala 1942 from PWG.

Best regards

Thanks Eric. I aim to set up the GMT East front series with Crimea out shortly. Nothing like "Stomping the Steppe!" If you like eastern front, the picture of me is from 2005 in the Hall of Heroes on the Mamayev Kurgan in Volgagrad/Stalingrad.. I aim to post more of my Russian front photos, I also hope to get down to Kurk possibly next year...regards Tony

Thanks for the welcome, Eric! Yeah, the collection is shrinking, but that doesn't stop me from the odd new acquisition now and then - just picked up MMP's "Bastogne" and Battles Magazine's "A Week in Hell: The Battle of Hue." Mostly shed stuff I wasn't playing.

Here's hoping you're getting a chance to play more than you were the last time I spoke with you!

Yes, I like the new stuff as well as the old. I feel conflicted because sometimes wargamers get so set in their ways. Just as computer UIs have moved on in the past 20 years, valuing ease of use and intuitive interfaces, I appreciate wargames that do the same.

I guess the way I would phrase it is: while I personally love old hex-and-counter wargames, I absolutely understand why it is super-difficult to interest new people in them, given how games have moved in the past 20 years. So I'm 100% supportive of game mechanics that are more approachable to "new users".

Thanks for the welcome Eric,

I'm trying to get things together to do the conversion of the Central Front series to the Flashpoint: Golan system at the moment. Having some difficulty in finding a copy of Hof Gap over here though...

I've seen some good threads on this here on ConsimWorld.

Thanks I do believe that with time restrictions it will have to be Hex war or vassal.

Hey man, thanks for the kind welcome.

Frankly, I've only played the original TS, so I'm not really up on the new edition....and I've only got the base C&C: Ancients game.

I am what you might call "an insufferable newbie", I'm hoping that the website can get me more broadly involved in the consim world, and teach me a thing or three about wargaming!
