Enter the Cassino!

The Battle for Cassino has more controversy than some battles for a variety of reasons. But we can look at all that another day. For now we admire, reminisce and look at S&T #71.

Expect a play of this when we arrive in March 1944 in our Chronological play of WWII. I recall this as a fairly new player being a interesting puzzle to solve and quiet different from my earlier games that were more Operational/Strategic in scale.

That has now changed! We are reunited, for better or worse.


Hey!! At least say something! ;)
