Empires of the middle ages at CSWExpo - grand campaign:

I'm planning on running this as a drop-in event, though it would be great if I could get a couple of people

interested in playing at least a couple of days worth of it.

Right now, there are a handful of folk signed up for it - but looking at the list,

I'm guessing most aren't planning on playing for a large part of the con. Spread the

word - this can be a lot of…

CSR revisited voting

We've been doing a set of polls to refight the prior CSR awards.


All the prelim threads for the '70's are in place (two expired)

and we've got finals threads for '74 and '75.

Once the 70's are done, if enough folk seem interested,

we'll move on to the 80's. If not, well, maybe we'll try in a…

Game Day

Went out to play Virgin Queen opposed.

Full table of players. We only got a few turns in
(in many hours), but this is the type of gaming &
group that I should like.

Instead though, I'm just fatigued. Much as from
the couple other times I've done opposed play
in the last couple years (other than with the wife).

Beginning to think that I've just become too asocial to really enjoy anymore.

Some soloist thoughts

I suspect most folk here have it all down pretty good, 

but someone asked a few questions, and I thought I'd express them:

A couple of hints though (especially if your memory is good).

Take lots of breaks - you can't play interactive games as

quickly as I-go-you-go ones, or you'll remember too much.

Get hooked on the story. For me, even when I'm not taking a

break, I spend some time…

Blogs as best means of communicating here

Know what?

I think I'm sold on this as being the best feature here.

Yeah, it's not as segmented and focused as the groups - but I see blog posts as at least as

strong a means of communicating here as are the fora. Biggest bonus? they show up in the

'latest activity' stream - which is more accessible to my understanding than individual threads

for discussions.

Investigating Axis Empires

This one's been hell on me so far.

The rules are presented in such a different format from what I've seen, 

and though they seem complete (maybe?) are pared down to a minimum of

repetition (usually a good thing). But, without extensive cross referencing 

(nor even an index) it's very difficult to find out what links with what -

and the format makes them just not stick in my head, in terms of where

to bother looking.
