Congress of Gamers

I know I'm posting this a bit late, but I will be attending Congress of Gamers outside of DC this weekend. I think I'll only be able to make it for Saturday, but I'm not sure yet. I may join the Here I Stand game, depending on what time I arrive. There are also a number of games I'd love to try (I own them but haven't played them yet): Afrika II, Red Star Rising, and Corps Command: Totensonntag.



Drop me a note if you'll be there. I'm looking forward to going. And this year, I get to… Continue

I only had about 4-5 squads and one ordnance weapon to oppose numerous squads and three vehicles (including a Tiger tank).



Ultimately I lost the game--the… Continue

Lock 'n Load: Band of Heroes

On Thursday evening, I played a couple of games of LnL: BoH with my friend Dean. I had played it a couple of times before, and Dean hadn't played it at all. The first scenario--"Rebecca, can you hear me?" (I may have the name wrong)--is a bit odd because of the night rules and the victory conditions. There was very little fighting because of the night rules--Dean (as the Germans) just wandered around the board (as per the rules) for a few turns 'til he ended up right next to a fire team. So I… Continue
