Grand Illusion

This wwI game by Ted Raiced attract me time ago for his map with big hexes. When finally I grab at sale a copy from GMT online store I laid the map in my table waiting patiently to find a pbem opponent to try it. Finally, my friend Pierre Miranda accepted my challengue and we are going to start with the historical scenario setup where I will try to get into Paris with the Germans.



Always I buy this game I always check if there is a gamebox available. Of course, GMT supports… Continue

Napoleon's Triumph

This is the second game inspired in the best seller Bonaparte at Marengo (news from the third are recently: Guns of Gettisburg). It keeps the visual appearance of his predecessor but the rules suffered a major reworking, doing the game experience very different (it seems Gettisburg will suffer the same process). For this, althought BaM has a great suitability to pbem, NT's suffered a bit of downtime when playing by email meanwhile you are waiting the response from your player… Continue

But this sites are like many others you could have available if you like computer games, have a pet, and so on. There is one type of sites I guess you only found if you are an adict pbem player: the ladders.



I would like to talk about the most veteran ladder page: The Russian Campaign: Online! is active from 1999. But they don't support Cyberboard as default pbem… Continue

Vietnam

In the Era of Cyberboard 2.0, when the pallete has only 256 colours available, Cyberboard designers made his gamebox maps using the drawing tools provided by CBDesign. You had to spend many hours of your free time if you want to get the virtual map with the same quality than the printed map. Of course, many designers did gameboxes with simple but useful maps that allows you play the game (and I will try to show in a future post a example of this).



But now, I want to show the other… Continue
