I am preparing to play Grunt in the course of my TRIP THROUGH EVERY S&T GAME EVER!

It looks like a lot of fun, and I'm hoping the basic game is simple enough to play with my little girl. And then I'll play it with my Vietnamese wargamer friend so he can curse at me in the native lingo.

Red Storm over the Reich, 90% rules read...struggling between Vassal or physical solitaire play on the limited desk top.

Up Front, Frederick is going to teach me this card game and he assures me I shall like it....hmmm....

Red Russia, another solitaire in the beginning of March. If I go Vassal on Red Storm over the Reich, I will put this down on the table because it is one mapper game.

I feel elevated.

Literally helping play test and edit Bloody April 1917 for release in Juy.

This game is looking better and better. Can't wait to play with little cardboard bits on a real paper map. Vassal is for electrons!!

Punching Nightfighter as we speak, going to play "The Kammhuber Line" Scenario where the Germans created a stretch of searchlights to search for bombers.

I must say! The solitaire rules are a lot more complex then the regular rules. At the very least there are a lot more rules.

I've been having fun with my new counter clipper [ see http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/753278/implementing-the-... ].

Currently clipping two monsters La Bataille de la Moscowa (third edition) and The Battle for Normandy. About half way through the rules for both. After I finish my Barbarossa addiction, I'd like to try a small scenario of either.

There are two kinds of ships: Submarines, and Targets.

Pulled out two oldies-but-goodies, Battle Hymn and Leatherneck. Clipped (with new super-whamodyne clipper: Implementing the Perfect Solution... to counter clipping), sorted, organized, cleaned, inventoried (complete!), and inserted errata. Ready to go to the table!

I'm entering the 12 step program soon laugh

Had EG on my shelf for about a year but no opponent, I now have an opponent for some wargaming every so often so it was time to let the counters see some action.

Got B&B from ebay unopened but with a dinged corner so got that cheaper than normal

Then it was a case of 'Might as well work on buying it all'

Reading the rules for Carrier

Need to purchase some more clear-coat, and give the counters a good blast prior to punching them. I only bother doing this for games with chit pulling.

I've noticed what really ruins chits is when people hold them and rub them between their fingers while thinking (this often happens with chit-pulling games, for some reason). My first copy of Across 5 Aprils was ruined when I lent it to a friend who played with someone who did that (he was nice enough to get me another copy). I then learned that this other person also bent cards, banged the corners of chits and cards on the table, tapped things with his fingernails, and scraped cards on his beard and teeth while thinking! angry yuk

So maybe it's a matter of teaching who you play with to be careful, although I admit that sometimes components are extremely fragile and wear easily.

Reading through the rules for Burma. OCS is definitely a step up from SCS, but I'm getting to grips with it.

After finishing another 2 games of Nightfighter, I finished reading the rules for Phantom Fury as well and will have that on the table tonight. Looks pretty intense, can't wait to see how all the elements and rules melt with the tactical situation of the map.

Finished up clipping Stalingrad Pocket (second edition) and stickering Commands & Colors: Ancients Expansion Pack #4 – Imperial Rome.




Next up - not sure, but probably stickering and clipping Europe Engulfed - I love Rick Young's games - blocks AND counters!

I'll probably spend some time this week sleeving some more of my Strat-O-Matic Baseball cards.

I'm also considering tackling the prep work for Earth Reborn (there is so much stuff in the big box that the lid won't close completely -- and this is before I have punched anything!).

I will probably also start stickering my Commands & Colors: Napoleonics game.

When the March list is posted, we'll see if any of my intentions carried through!

I saw the masculine, combat-spirited Soviet workers in ranks and files!

All power to the Soviet!

You must have huge pockets to fit that in - the full size Stalingrad game must be massive! ....Sorry :blush:


I've just finished prepping my Under the Lily Banners of the Musket & Pike Battle Series, plus sorting out Bastogne: Screaming Eagles under Siege by order of arrival.

Can't wait to play both!
