"Eric, Too many games, not enough time!  The Poland Defiant looks interesting because it is one of those subjects that gets little attention.  It would seem a hopeless situation, given the terrain that the Poles have to try to defend…"

"Jo, of course Hexasim has put out games on Ligny and Quatre Bras, so who knows when I'll get to play all these fantastic titles?  Really appreciate the attention paid to alternative assumptions in these battles.  I've been…"

"Eric, Unfortunately, I sold my big collection of 100+ wargames back in 2000.  Stopped wargaming altogether until the last 5 years or so.  Some of them were definitely not solitaire.  Waterloo was a joke, compared to the games out…"

"Jo, I still appreciate those old AH games and have kept them (unlike a number of old SPI games I had!).  They are call the AH classics for a reason.  Still see them played at the wargame conventions here! I really want to get…"

"Eric, Seems like we've been on similar paths in life. 1.  My uncle introduced me to wargaming when I was about 10.  Midway, Blitzkrieg, Bismark, Waterloo, Guadalcanal.  All of those lovely AH wargames he gave to me and we…"

Jo, of course Hexasim has put out games on Ligny and Quatre Bras, so who knows when I'll get to play all these fantastic titles?  Really appreciate the attention paid to alternative assumptions in these battles.  I've been playing CATACLYSM (GMT), MARIA, and the BATTLES OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION more recently and have Revolution Games's POLAND DEFIANT on the table now.  Still more games coming through the door that I want to play!      

If you ever get to Camp Pendleton, they've got a Conflict Simulations Club that meets every third Saturday in the multi-purpose room in the Mainside bowling alley.  I think they still meet then.  If you ever think you can make it there, I'd track down Harold Buchanan--designer of the GMT COIN game LIBERTY OR DEATH--as he's affiliated with them and probably has the most recent scoop.  Other than that, I'm sure there are some gamers in Phoenix.  Looks like a drive no matter which way you go!

Jo, I still appreciate those old AH games and have kept them (unlike a number of old SPI games I had!).  They are call the AH classics for a reason.  Still see them played at the wargame conventions here!

I really want to get Hexasim's AUSTERLITZ on the table; Kevin Sharp has been posting a lot about that game.  Battalion Combat System also intrigues me, although I'll want to try BAPTISM OF FIRE and BRAZEN CHARIOTS before I get into LAST BLITZKRIEG!

Love the games you've been playing recently--I confess I just got D-DAY AT IWO JIMA because I liked the others in that series.  Is there a group that plays out at MCAS Yuma--on or off base?  I'm lucky to have a large gaming group here in south-central Virginia around Richmond.  Never lack for opponents here!
