Two or 3 weeks ago I posted these images seeking your input upon next games to play. Firstly thanks for the Great comments here and on G+.

I now have a session of TME II underway via VASSAL. I played two scenarios of DoH’s last week Face to Face and I just finished setting up Reluctant Enemies with a new friend Chris T to play via VASSAL also. Here is a shot of where I think he might try to land his commandos!


Tomorrow I play a learning scenario of Carthage! Whoot!

In the mean time my play of The Supreme Commander is being delayed due to my changing settings in the VASSAL module. It has taken me 2 days and 80 dollars worth of consulting time on site to sort it. UGHHHHH.

FIXED. So we resume that game next week.


I have the new Panzer Expansion 3 set up… I know I could not help my self! I had to see how a Tiger would handle those British Fireflies!

The Fireflies and  Cromwells are coming for Wittmann.

So what is missing? CFS…. yes. I have a post about this set of 3 games. I quit, more out of frustration with how sticky the counters were (they are covered in plastic) than the game, but I also was more than a little disappointed with the game play versus the Pro Soviet hype. I quickly realized this was going to go no where fast. I will be choosing the next WWIII hypothetical title in a month or two. I need a break from the same old units in the woods of Germany!

On a more up beat note, I have the map for Devils Cauldron setup, I need to sort counters and begin play in a week or so of a learning scenario! Yes I will finally play this darn game.

Adam Starkweather is sending me a copy of the DDAY title for a group of us to try, so I better get some solid understanding going ASAP! ..ahem.

Meanwhile the Monster lies in wait….it is December 26th Soviet Turn and Case Blue/GBII beckons me. I really need to finish up the month and work out if I am continuing thru January ’42 in our Chronological Walk thru of WWII.

Finally on Friday I will play Dien Bien Phu from MMP for the first time with a buddy. I’m downloading the rules tomorrow.

Areas that are languishing are the Napoleonic and Ancients periods. I have been too chicken to pull the trigger on La Bat – Talavera to compare against NBS.

Nor have I been able to find the room to setup LAst Chance for Victory – although I do have a scenario picked out to use to compare with This Hallowed Ground in a Side by Side effort!
