We liked it enough to do a repeat at Midnite on Saturday!! I bought the extra bag of Flamingo's but felt it made the game drag out, rather than speed it up. The game also played faster the second time around. Having a small table where you can see each others trailer (and tenants) helps. Although after a couple of playings you get the idea of the cards, and can play just by seeing the large symbols in the corners. The text and pictures on the cards are certainly well done.

How is Trailer PArk Wars - we saw it but with our compressed schedule, it missed the gut check.

First chance to post here since I got back from Origins. I played Combat Commander, watched Combat Commander and played some more Combat Commander.

Plus got a chance for to play one city/one hand of Hell of Stalingrad, played a game of Conflict of Heroes with Gunter Eickert, and watched Mike and Arnie play a number of games (vs one another and others), including Storm Over Stalingrad and Bravery in the Sand.

Got an overview of the new Musket & Pike series game from Dick Vohlers...all in all a grand time.

Great Mike: I'll stop by wargame room between miniature games. When I was there in 2003 or 4 the boardgamers where in several rooms on the second floor. Some guys set up and played GDW's mega WW2 game, bde level, got to play two months of WW2, June-July 44' playing the entire weekend. WOW. They don't send Con Flyers out either. At least pick up pre-reg packets are available Tuesday, 5-10 PM, which is great for us early birds that don't want to stand in lines. My 1st event is at 9AM, so I'll recon and stop at the board wargame room Wed morning. Have you thought of playing on e-programs, I tried play by mail in the 80s but was turne off.
