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!

Thanks.

I have actually been wargaming since I was 12! Cut my teeth on Waterloo and Afrika Corps and Jutland and moved on to the grand tactical Napoleonic games in College and Law School. I actually ran a small gaming company in the early 80"s (ran it into the ground...), wrote articles for Dragon magazine and designed some wargame prototypes for the Air Defense Artillery.

I let it all go a number of years ago (the Balkan Wars got in the way of my gaming...) but am picking it back up now in order to integrate it into my teaching. I realized that there was no better way to teach systems thinking than through games and I wanted to figure out how to do that for my intel studies students. You can actually see my first paper on how things are going on my blog, Sources And Methods, if you are interested.

Thanks! Hoping to get back into playing ASL after a couple years of idleness. Need to complete work on my game room (family room) before that can happen, though.

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.
