"Joe's point on WELLINGTON'S VICTORY is certainly apt. One thing I regret to this day is that the variation on the system that ERIC LEE SMITH created for BATTLE OF MONMOUTH was not duplicated for 4 to 6 more American Revolutionary…"

Russ Gifford replied to Eric Walters's discussion Breakthrough and Benchmark SPI Designs--Your Assessments? in the group All things SPI
"I guess I see CITYFIGHT as a breakthrough that went no where, but could have gone anywhere. I frequently wonder if SPI had survived, had Dunnigan stayed with them, had they entered the then-being-born computer era, would CITYFIGHT have been used as…"

"So glad this thread brought Joe to the table! I was trying to decide how best to quote him on the importance of the original KURSK system, and the influence it wielded as the design points washed across a decade (or more) or later designs! I had…"

About Me
I've been gaming more than 30... hmmm, more than 35 years, hmmm, ok, I guess this is 40 years. OK. That's enough of that conversation!

I have created audio and video training videos for my favorite wargame series': ASL and GBACW. (http://www.russgifford.net/asl_training.htm)
Personal Interests (favorite activities, movies, shows, books, music, etc.)
Reading, programming, etc.

OK - back in Nebraska. I have the time to play most evenings starting in December, and occasional weekends. I will be available Mon-Thurs evenings in Council Bluffs, and Saturdays in Siouxland.... looking for players for or SPI games, or ASL, and I have the room to leave the games up and undisturbed. So let me know!

Sorry I just saw this. I hardly ever check CSW. I am going through a bit of a life transition as I am going to I retire soon, so that is my primary focus. I will get the itch to play again after I secure a follow on job.

count me in...please notice the downloads for old S and T's on various websites....free and good to notice to others. I actually worked alongside S and T staffers during the golden years at their east 23 rd street offices including Dunnigan...fascinating men all...

Hey Russ,

 

Do you know where I can find a list of all the GBACW counters that have been included in issues of C3i?

 

Thanks,

Thanks for the invite. Metro Wargamers in Brooklyn used to have TSS set up in their club. I recently heard someone tell me that Ed (big ACW gamer) had pasted away. Did you know any of those members? It would be nice to get a monster GMT ACW game going monthly. What does the summer look like for you? Dead of Winter possibly?
