Jim Thomas commented on Luke Sineath's group Triad Area (NC) Wargamers
"Shannon: I suspect we have a mix of some FTF gaming and a lot of Vassal.  Knowing only 1/3 of the group membership that statement is probably wildly off."

From Eben-Emael to Hannut, Gembloux, traced the route of 1st Pz. from the frontier to just past Sedan. We went to Stonne, two Maginot forts, Abbeville, Arras, and Dunkirk. I loved it and would like to do it again.

Jim, I've also reached that point and the collection is at its apogee; this spring I'll be auctioning off all my EUROPA series games.  I've played all the GDW versions but not the GR/D ones and now understand that I'll never get to them.  I will need to do far more than just this, however.  But it begins now.  Have cut my wargaming magazine subscriptions to just a handful and am not ordering new games like I had.  Still have plenty on the bucket list that need playing, however!  Yes, I don't play ANYTHING well these days!
