We had to buy our daughter a new laptop yesterday (as part of her up-coming birthday present), as the one she has been using was not good enough, un-reliable and was too heavy to carry back and forth to college.
This old laptop, is actually my laptop, which I bought some 8 years ago. It is not a fast machine, or a even a good spec machine, but it is good enough to run HPS/Matrix wargames.
So after giving it a good service, I have now dedicated it to such a purpose, that it will…Continue

Here's another composite image of the situation at 3pm, 1 July, 1863. Rodes' Division has struck against the Iron Brigade (and Wadsworth's Division in general) north of Gettysburg. Initially Cutler's brigade on the left attempted to hold their position against Rebel shock attacks, but, they lost three out of four results (shock combat really favours the attacker); and so the Iron Brigade decided to withdraw before shock combat instead of risking losses. They'll slowly pull back to the town…Continue
Connections 2013 will be held 22 through 25 July 2013 at the Tec^Edge, Dayton, Ohio – and virtually worldwide.
Connections is the only national conference dedicated specifically to wargaming. Since 1993 Connections has worked to advance and preserve the art, science and application of wargaming by bringing together all elements of the field (military, commercial and academic) so that practitioners can exchange information on achievements, best practices and needs.

Hey, ya'll -- I'm creating a series of Vassal logs teaching how to play Empire of the Sun. If interested, send me your e-mail address and I'll add you to the Drop Box.
Does CSW have e-mails? I'm still trying to figure out how to maneuver over here. If not, send me a Geekmail at BGG (user: airjudden).

Picket Duty is undergoing final artwork at Legion Wargames. Target date for release is August! Below is the final box art!
I live in Peachtree City, Georgia (south metro area of Atlanta) and I am considering forming a wargaming club for those that live in the metro Atlanta area. I tried once before a few years ago, but at the time the steep price in gas precluded many from driving.
Would any of you now consider participating while gas prices have somewhat stabilized, albeit still high?
Right now I am considering once a month meetings and can rent a room at the our city rec center for us to use all…Continue

Little Round Top – 1700-1800 hours – ‘Race for the heights of Little Round Top!!!
This continues from my earlier report of the 1600-1700 turn (see here: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/985670/little-round-top-... ). As I noted there, a lot is happening on a tactical level so I’m writing this up based on hourly turns (which take me a week of…

My quest to have have the complete set of the Royalist & Roundheads system took another step closer today, making it 50% complete.
I doubt I will ever reach 100%, as some of the games in the system are VERY hard to come by, and what is available is very expensive: CRUSADES QUAD, CROSSBOWS AND CANON II & SWORD & SHIELD.
Have you any HOLY GRAILS that you are trying to complete?

I will raise a glass in memory of my Dad who took part in D-Day, serving on HMS Scylla, on this day 69 years ago.
And I will raise a glass to all the other brave people who took part in this operation, and to those who fell.
Little Round Top – 1600-1700 hours – ‘The devil’s work at The Devil’s Den’
I’ve begun my third scenario of GBACW – Three Days of Gettysburg. This time I’ve stepped it up a little more and am taking on the Little Round Top scenario. This scenario focuses on the Confederate attempt to roll up the Union left (southern flank) on 2 July, 1863, the second day of the Battle of Gettysburg.
Looking over the field, the CSA begins strong, but they have no reinforcements. They need to…
Played another game of this with my Dad.
I really like this game so much so I have bought another copy cheap…
