1958 -- Picked this one up on eBay because I liked the Civil War theme.

Interesting idea for a GeekList.

Overlord Turn 2.

OL takes 2 threat and draws 3 cards
OL discards 6 cards and gains 14 threat
OL places Brilliant Commander Power card into play for 17 threat.

Howling the shade launches a return attack at Shiver.
shade rolls white/yellow
Miss on white.
The shade flys to M1 moaning to itself in dejection.

The medusa attempts to navigate the ice at L2 but slips and reaches out for the dungeon wall to steady herself, not daring to take another step.
(Medusa rolls suge on power die while navigating ice.)
Busy trying to keep herself upright, the medusa misses her chance to attack.

I'm reading Ghost Brigades, by John Scalzi. The (sort of) sequel to Old Man's War.

Once again, the book has elements of Starship Troopers and The Forever War, plus unique themes of it's own. It weighs in on what constitutes morality in the middle of a war, and what it really means to be human. The first book was excellent, and I believe this one surpasses it, which is rare, even for experienced writers. This series is a must-read for Sci-Fi fans. NOTE: Scalzi won the John W Campbell award for Best New Writer for Old Man's War - an accolade he richly deserved, IMHO

for J. Scalzi

Grayson is another great cheese - pair with a porter, or if drinking wine, a ruby port or heavy red wine (think Bordeaux blend).

117. John Singleton Mosby (1833–1916)

"Gray ghost" was a Confederate partisan ranger. In 1853, he was pardoned by the governor for a shooting. Later, he was a campaign manager for President Grant and U.S. consul to Hong Kong.

This is one of the first Civil War games and is actually a tie in with a tv show of the same name. The TV show was created to take advantage of the increasing interest in the Civil War in the late 50s.

For the game you get to play one of Mosby's Raiders. The series itself was short lived. The game didn't fair much better from the looks of it.

Never play block wargames with a dentist, they have those little mirrors to peek behind the block.

I got my interest in civil war history and becoming a cw re-enactor (even though I became a yankee) from watching this childhood show. When Victory Games Mosby's Raiders came out, it was a must have.
