As I recall I cleaned your clock in chess too. Revisionist.

Bull I was terrible at Blitzkrieg. I kicked your ass into an alternate universe, a state your mind still hasn't recovered from apparently.

BTW, currently (in between posts) I'm making a CB gamebox. The map is almost done in only three nights.

Mark,

Go to Members above then search for Gary. There are only three and I'm the one mispelling his name.

Gary, Alan Rothberg, Jack Beckman, Phil Jones, Ian Schofield, The Amish Robot and other have been meeting for online chat each Wednesday for years. Gary has graciously put me up twice for Origins there in Columbus, OH near where he currently lives, married with children. He is here and on the regular ConsimWorld site.

My cool story.
I lived near Prüm, Germany when my copy of Wacht am Rhein was purchased. I worked at Prüm Air Station (see my photos for the beer stein) which is on the Schnee-Eifel ridge. I lived in a village so small you will not find it on any wargame map but it was near the road to Stadkyll where the SS division lined up.

I think that was part of the problem. The publication schedule and the need for a warehou$e to keep all tho$e game$.

Dunnigan: Yep, that's what I heard. Being from MO-land cut into my wargaming. Off the beaten path hurt. I was pleasently surprised to find wargames at a sporting goods store. I was intertaining myself as my (then wife) was shopping for groceries next door and found a large stack of flat packs. What a drain on our minimum wages.

PGG: BoardGameGeek says that Dunnigan designed it. There must be a story behind Dunnigan's design technique. I seemed to have read something on that.

How I got started with wargames (not counting Battle Cry, Dogfight and Broadside): I was with the girlfriend that became my first wife. She went to where her mom worked at a card and crystal shop. Being bored I wandered around the store. On a shelf was a magazine with a military motif on it I picked it up and met my first copy of S&T. When I opened the magazine the map and counters fell out. OOO! Military history and a game to play. I had to borrow money from my girl to buy it. Surprisingly Lost Battles (and the adverts in the mag) were enough to pull me into the hobby when I really didn't have the cash to buy the games.

What did you do at SPI back in the day?

Sixth Fleet? Does that game hold some specific special sentiment? I was in Germany when I picked up my copy and played several solo games of it.
