Upon cross examination Justin (IMagus) from Board Game Geek faithfully promised to send me a copy of the inexpensive 1980 micro game Rommel’s Panzers he found at a book store.
These titles are short concise simple explorations of snippets of history. Funnily enough a Steve Jackson incarnation shipped originally from Austin Texas….my home town.
Some weeks later not only does the game show up:
But it came with friends! Ram Speed
and Fire When Ready
This was so very thoughtful and one of the reasons why I tolerate some of the stupid that goes on over at BGG. While good guys such as Justin are around I’ll stick with the site.
these will make neat travel games for over the summer.
