Here's a little something to jog your memories. This is getting into the wayback machine to a game with counter graphics that surprised us all when it hit the market. Such glorious detail! Anyone remember this one?…Continue
Today I attempted my first game of SPQR in about 2 years and for the most part I still do not know what I am doing. I have however made progress

Finally got this game punched and laid out on the table last night. The components are quite nice and thus far from what I am reading I like the mechanics.

I got really trounced in #Saratoga today playing as the Americans. I conceded by turn 9 and had already fallen behind 6 VP's to ZERO. That's right....ZERO. But now I know the system and how it works. I will be better prepared the next time. Here are some pics: …Continue

My review of Andean Abyss, at PAXsims.
Victory today for me at the Battle of Crecy! At last I finally won a game. Today's game was Men of Iron and we re fought the Battle of Crecy. I played the English and my gaming buddy played the French. We used the historical rules so it was an uphill fight for the French during the game. Literally as well as figuratively. I even killed King Philip of #France. Mud, rain, and overzealous knights plagued him all…Continue

Just thought I'd call everyone's attention to the FREE, online, club "zine" Warning Order. It's put out by a Utah based gaming club and is excellent reading.... Like most issues, this new one covers both historical miniatures and board wargaming (just like in the days of old...).

I don't have much of a…
