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 […]

Well, my planning wasn’t all that great for the Hell’s Highway scenario. I left the Southern part of Veghel bridge open and my German opponent rolled right in and scored an auto victory in two chits! quite embarrassing. To be fair to me, the Walther Div activation chit was the 2nd chit in play (coming […]
I have a VASSAL game of the Hell’s Highway scenario from Where Eagles Dare coming up. I’m working to top off this orders doc that I adapted from an earlier post. Lots of map studying examination of unit capabilities. Looking froward to running the 101st AB and protecting Club Route!
I’m working with a new Grand Tactical Series player but going through the scenario The Best Laid Plans from Where Eagles Dare, one of my favorite.

I played the scenario in April 2014. It is a nice one-mapper that adapts the existing rules for the Campaign Scenario. It isn’t […]

Our Where Eagles Dare Campaign game ended this week (wrap up reporting in the works). I was feeling a bit sad for myself (not really) and felt like getting out the physical copy. Just wanted to lay it out and count some counters. Why? Because I can . . . (Planning for the next game […]
