What is going on.....

Have not done gaming in months - work bites!!! But I have a job - so I can buy all the games I want jst can't play them!!!

This space for rent!

I've been busy and need to update things....

Here is what I'm gonna update:

My thoughts on gaming and other things..
What I'm playing...
My dream of designing some LNL and WAW modules....
What new games I've gotten - I've ordered "Hold The Line" and waiting to see how it looks, smells, tastes..

I'm gonna pull the trigger...

And buy the Rosetta Stone French edition softwre. Maybe in a year I can go over and visit Olivier, David, Yvan and everyone else...

I love the French!

Actually I've been back into board/wargaming for a couple of years now, and really have enjoyed the hobby! I've been thinking about a few things lately so here are my rambling thoughts.

1. I really like game settings besides the Bulge or Stalingrad. To me it seems like people are way too focused on these battles. Like 15 of the top twenty war games on BGG seem to be about these battles. Jeez...

2. I really like French games. I'm finding the rules, art and subject matter… Continue

Contra Vs. Sandinista

I don't know why - but now I'd really like to see a LNL module based on this - I know it won't sell but would be "pure" infantry combat. Maybe I'm crazy but I find it interesting. Maybe even other "brush" wars of the Cold War. I've been thinking of it a lot lately.

I know some folks find it tasteless - but I'm interested to know what really happened, and I think the men and women who fought and died on both sides need to have the world remember.

Am I wrong?

FTF gaming

I had a FTF session after a long drought a few weeks ago (got in a couple games of Eisenbach Gap and started Hold The Line). And all I can say is WOW is it fun. What a great hobby...

Gotta try and get a game group together.

I think I'm done with computer games....

I tried to play a bunch of games - but now that I'm back into war games (and other table top gaming) I just can't play computer games.

I work on a PC all day at work, and lately it seems all I want to do is to read and if I get a chance - look at or play with my board games.

WOW... At least now I can save money. Insttad of a new PC every year it can go to games....

What happened...

Hi Andy, do you really mean that you only have 8 games in your collection? From my following of your posts in Consimworld, you should definitely have more than that number. Cheers!

Hi, sorry not to get back to you. Been bouncing around, visiting family, but we'll be doing less of that as school approaches. Still interested in setting up a game?

Once in awhile, my daughter lives in Brighton. I may be going to see the Redsox with her later this month. I lived most of my life in Berkshire county Mass.

I live and work in Newton. But it's a quick drive downtown, if there's someplace there you want to meet. LnL sounds like it's fast and fun. If you don't mind teaching me the system, I'm game.

What "little friend"? If you mean the cat . . . his name is Ramses.

Sundays won't be good for a while. Some evenings are good for me. How long might it take to play a game, considering I'm new to the system?
