'The Squad Leader Card Game'. It's the second game on my list that I haven't played yet as I recently picked up a copy from the Marketplace. Really looking forward to it.

I mean, I have a copy and the 're-done' cards. I gotta play it. The rules & learning curve are intimidating, however.

The good news is that Wargame Vault's printing the game, with an agreement with Hasbro (?).

Box shows wear, especially along the edges. Some edges are coming apart.

Missing 2 cards and 2 counters. Most cards are in VG condition, but some show wear and age.

(There was a smokey smell when I received it originally. If it's still there, it's very mild or impossible to tell.)

This was a game I found at an SPCA book sale at mall for $2 (along with $3 copy of Acquire with wood tiles and $1 for Gladiator--2 out of 3 ain't bad!)

It is fast paced (especially for a war game)--it can be played in about an hour. Every scenario is infinitely replayable and different every time. Each of different nationalities has different flavor and have to be handled differently.

I have played 1000's of times over the years both live and on line.

I've only recently received the Wargame Vault edition and I am slowly learning the system solitaire. I am currently half way through my first run at the second scenario and I need to do a lot of rules rereading!

Playing City Fight via Vassal. All the luck that I didn't have last game is now coming my way, as I've got the American firebase hung up on wire while trying to ford a canal, and am mowing them down in fine fashion. My LMG has jammed twice but I was able to clear it quickly in each instance. So far, so good.

Still one of my favorite games, haven't played it for years. Should float it around the game groups I play with and see if anyone wants to give it a try.

Could not believe that Radiant/Valley was there showing off Up Front*. Was cool to see all the various factions as cards instead of just a page on Kickstarter. Not sure about the balance of the new factions, but lots of tools to play around with.

* - this is a complete joke for anyone reading the list

Howdy Gelati!

No I didn't get to play Up Front, but my Wargame Vault edition arrived yesterday, so I am excited about getting to finally play the game.

As always I've been busy with work. We did 12 days straight, not too much for some people, I suppose, but I've been working 11-12 hour days the whole time, so this three day weekend was definitely long overdue and a nice reprieve.

I have not, as usual, played much this past couple of weeks, but I have played:

Dungeon! x1 with my son. He still loves this game, and I beat him by just a couple of moves this time so it was pretty funny to watch him try to chase me down as I ran for the entry hall.

Sushi Go! x4 or so. This is a cute little game, and my son and my wife both like it so we have been playing it.

Jaipur x1 My wife and I went to my local coffee shop I've talked about before (with all the Star Wars stuff and drinks like "The Sith" and "The Jedi") and played a game of this and a game of Sushi Go while drinking coffee. It was a nice slow morning for once

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring Deck-Building Game x1 I have been neglecting board game meetup day for the past couple of months, so this was the first game I'd gotten to play there in a while. I had shown up the week before, but everyone there had already started a game and by the time they finished it was late enough I had to go.

Of course, 1830 and Space Empires 4X are still going on, and I'm losing both.

I've been so mentally exhausted from work that I haven't really been able to sit down and read new rules or motivate myself to do anything mentally taxing, so I've been crocheting more lately than I have in years.

I finished a salt and pepper afghan for my son, so he is happy. I'm working on a much smaller project (a dual-color chevron baby blanket) now, so that's been helping me unwind for now.

I hope everyone is well and safe!

"What Up Front does better than possibly any game is put you into a mindset of harrowing and frantic combat. You can almost feel your boots in the mud with bullets whizzing by. Up Front is all about the visceral feeling of close quarters infantry combat. It's not sterile or calculating like many war games can be. It also implements the multiple use cards idea. The cards can actually become the terrain. You are creating the battlefield as you play. You aren't constrained to a map, and the earth itself seem to come alive. Combine all of that with hand management and it's truly a one of a kind experience."

Great with two!

Each card has at least one action. Some are "split actions" where one side can be used by one nationality and the other by the others.

Some cards have an additional action printed on the side: RADIO (to call in artillery), FLANK & FORD.

Every card can be used as an open ground terrain card by playing it face down.

Also every card has an RNC (Random Number Card) and a set of RPC (Random Position Card) numbers which actions used to resolve various actions. (RNC's go from -6 to +6 in a rough bell curve and are mostly used to resolve combat. RPC are used to determine 1 out of N events. i.e. if one of 5 men in the group has a malfunctioning weapon, you check column 5 which will be a random number from 1 to 5 with roughly equal chance of occurring.)
