I got ATPO back in November and I have discovered a few problems with the game. China is too easy for the Japanese to conquor, as is India. The British economic points are too low (only 1 per turn plus colonies) and the US Has trouble building all their force pool ( 43 and 44 worst), but except for that it is a very good game on the Pacific War. I will be posting my thoughts on the ATPO link soon.

Eric,
The Innovation Game was Mike Markowitz and Al Nofi; the intent (my understanding) was a game that would engender innovativeness amongst somewhat staid and conservative Navy O-6s at the War College. I did get to play (as France...), but only after putting on the miniatures game that Jon and John were shown playing.

Thanks! I've downloading the MP3 versions of a lot of the old fusion albums that I listened to back in the day, and which I still have on vinyl. Cosmic Messenger is definitely on the required listening list for the genre, and it's one of my favorites. Just amazing musicianship.

I like ASL Historical stuff. Maps that look like satalight image are good. But the game still needs to be a game.

Thanks a lot Eric!, hope soon A las Barricadas 2nd Edition will be in preorder, LBF1940 uses the same "engine" but with the logical improvements of the WW2 era, great game too ;-)

BTW, Happy Thanksgiving Day for all of you!!

Well I hope you fared well in Ocean View after that nasty storm. Quite a noreaster. The Italian theater has always been my main interest and it's really quite overlooked in wargame design (I think). I'd rather focus on something different instead of another Bulge or D-Day game, even if it's a bit less popular. Definitely stop by ODMS sometime. It's always fun and the guys are cool. I'll be there this Thursday evening doing some gaming.

Eric,

I didn't know you were in Norfolk. Cool. I stayed home today since it's supposed to be the worst day of the storm. As long as I have power, I'll be doing some design most of the day- working on Spearpoint 1943 right now. Glad you're interested in my San Pietro game- I showed the map to a bunch of people at Fall-In in Gettysburg this past weekend and explained the command system a bit. A lot of people were really interested in it. I don't think it's ever been covered in a wargame which surprised me. I game in Hampton a lot at a place called The Hangar- it's a club called ODMS (Old Dominion Military Society) that mostly plays various miniatures games, but occasionally board games as well. These guys are running their 2nd annual Williamsburg Muster in February for 3 days. You're welcome to game with us anytime. The club's site has more info on the convention and the place we hang out (http://www.odms-club.com). Hope to see you there sometime.

Eric, new video - check it out on my page. You'll have to find something new to beat it I believe.

Hmm, seems I missed a bunch of Eric's new stuff. I'll have to step up my game for Videos.

Eric,
Next in order is First Men In: D-Day 1944. This covers the 82nd and 101st Airborne Divisions.
Then Guadacanal featuring the lively Japanese Banzai, USMC, and Rangers. :)

Thanks for the welcome note, Eric.

Have you gotten in any games of CoH yet?

Do you ever get up our way?

I have some interns that I get to do stuff for me - to include nagging me for things like hearing tests and my upcoming knee MRI (I have been unable to run since JAN), I will happily do so and am excited at getting this. One of the aspects I so like about you in the intellectual rigor you bring to the stuff - more fun that way you know? But someone wiping the VIPURI DEFENSE - wow!!!

Eric,

Sorry to have missed you.

Got 6 games in on Saturday.

Maybe we can hook up this Spring & get some Combat Commander in. Got 3 games in of that at the Con.

Also played Conflict of Heroes twice.

There's always next year for PrezCon

Hi Eric. You might remember me from WO. I was the one introducing the prototype of King Philip's War which you so kindly helped playtest. You may also remember that we discussed my bound study of Marine WWII Marine veterans. You had given me a web address with which to contact you, but when I sent you information it was returned (Address incorrect). I would like to send you a sample chapter and if you find it of interest perhaps you can forward it to your publisher friend. What is your E-mail address. Mine is Visions_PGH@hotmail.com
