Been on 2 BOG tours with Mark Simonitch (08 and 10). In 2013 did 9 days on a 1940 Blitz in the West tour. 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!
