While I’ve generally slowed down my game purchases (or have I?), a few new games have rolled in. Unconditional Surrender is one that I owned before and sold when its first run went OOP and it was going for a premium. The 2nd printing is out and I’m looking to give it another go. Holland […]
Now that Buckeye Gamefest is wrapped up, I’ve had a moment to reflect on the time that I had there and the play around the GTS system. Takeaways in no particular order: Playing GTS for a week reconfirmed that it is my favorite system and the one I want to play again and again. I’ve […]
Not too long ago a large box landed on my doorstep loaded with LnL goodness. I sold a lot of unplayed games to get this collection. 13 or so products in this purchase(!). So for, only the solo system has made it to the table; applied to some already-owned LnLT games. Over the past two […]
Been planning around my Devil’s Cauldron/Where Eagles Dare campaign game at Buckeye Game Fest. Had my division command awarded to me the other day. . .
Gearing up for my first Buckeye Game Fest which will be held in September. Thrilled to get the chance to play The Devil’s Cauldron / Where Eagles Dare with most of the same crew from CSWE ’16.
Returned to 2nd Fleet this past weekend after a four-year gap since my last play. Just as good as I remembered it. Nice to get the mechanics back under my belt and looking forward to some of the more advanced scenarios and perhaps, one day, maybe, THE FULL CAMPAIGN!! (*gasp*) Thanks to my buddy Keith […]
Having played Heroes of Normandy around 10 times, I felt it was time to do a review of my experiences. What do I think? Watch to find out!
I’ve made no secret that I am a huge fan of MMP’s Grand Tactical Series. For me it is the perfect fit of historical flavor with a robust game system. So you can imagine how thrilled I was when Operation Mercury: The Invasion of Crete showed up at my door recently. There are a number of […]
A few weeks ago I played GMT’s Triumph and Tragedy for the first time. The game has been getting a lot of rave reviews lately for its quick and enjoyable play. I don’t own the game however and had to learn the rules quickly in preparation for my session with Gene and Keith. I tend […]
Last weekend I played Persian Gulf one of the games in GDW’s Third World War Series. I was glad to have to opportunity thanks to my buddy Keith who generously allowed us to use his copy. After playing, I can see why TWW is well-regarded. Robust but not overly complex. Neat political mechanics (in this […]
I have another round of Lock n Load Tactical started playing via VASSAL. This time around, I’m playing the British Airborne defending some buildings against the German Wehrmacht in Heroes of Normandy’s Attack of Das Kochegschirr scenario. We were able to set up, grok through some of the vehicle rules, and work through two turns before calling […]
I’ve got a gamer’s crush on Lock n Load Tactical. So I jumped on a recently announced sale from Local n Load Publishing. Noville, Battle Pack Alpha, and Battle Pack Bravo arrived. These seem to be older products and the quality shows that a bit with dated graphics and shiny counters. The price was right though […]
