The Best Reason I Know to Give Away a New Wargame

As a high school teacher, one of the things I've never heard (in 31 years) is a 16 y.o. female student describe a wargame as (and I quote) "The most awesome game ever...."  She was talking about Napoleon (the AH version) that she played at game club "pizza and games" night. (see my last blog....)  

How would one react?  Well, I just so happened to have a new copy of the CG version I'd picked up last summer at a store clearnace in Santa Clara (for $5!). So student "K" is now the proud…

Canvas Temple Publishing

It's been a while since I logged into the CSW Social site. Thought I'd take this opportunity to post about my new endeavor, Canvas Temple Publishing. Essentially it's a low-key vanity press for me and some friends to publish games we want to publish (rather than what anyone else wants :-). A number of friends have signed up and given me designs, and so far we've run 3 successful Kickstarter campaigns, with another running right now.

Our first game, which is now shipping, is…

Guadalajara SCS game

Hi All,

A while ago I thought it might be fun to take all the SCS games I have on Vassal and play them as one continuous campaign.

I will play every scenario, starting with those in Guadalajara and continue in chronological order right up to the last scenario of Bastogne. All scenario results will be kept, keeping a sort of "running score" of Axis and Allied progress up to the end of WW2.

Each scenario will also be posted on this blog as a "War Diary", taking the form of…

Aegean Strike

Ieri sera, seconda sessione dedicata al titolo Aegean strike - Victory Games; titolo datato ma sempre una chicca per ogni grognards!

Sono riuscito a piazzarlo grazie all'amico Luigi F., che ama come me le simulazioni dedicate agli anni '80, Nato vs Patto di Varsavia.

La simulazione è complessa; complessa specie nella sequenza di gioco che obbliga, perlomeno affrontando il gioco per la prima volta, a continue letture delle varie parti del regolamento.

Difficile capire, al…
