When it is your turn to send a VASSAL move, the wait is excruciating. When it's my turn, well, I've been busy.

Won a game of No Retreat! as German by auto-victory on turn 6. The Russian lost a couple of precious VPs due to Stalin interference (make 3 attacks or lose a VP, which he was in no position to do) plus I managed to take Leningrad due to having Siege guns, which was cancelled by a Soviet card, but I was also holding "inexperienced Soviet officers" which allowed me to cancel the card that cancelled my card. That was a lucky one-two punch that game me Leningrad and Finland for another two VPs.

Enjoyed this and another play so much I just bought the GMT deluxe version.

Finished my first game of Rommel in the Desert.

Just playing solo to figure out the rules, so I decided to play the 1940 scenario.

Fun game, but it ain't fun to look up rules through out the rule book, and more and more questions arose while playing.

But, I will play it again.

Cheers, Haring

Had a blast with the _Clearing Kakazu_ scenario from ASL Journal #2. Yanks won, aided by the rain turning to heavy, good artillery availability, and good flamethrower stamina.

Scenario 13 (Skalitz: Luncheon of Doom) from APL's Battles of 1866: Frontier Battles

The Austrians ended up thoroughly thrashing the Prussians, particulalry through their use of artillery. This is a hypothetical scenario that gives the Austrians a better army leader (Ramming vs Archduke Leopold) and more troops than they had historically at the battle.

Finished a four-player campaign of Axis & Allies 1940 Global. Our Axis player did not fare too well, finishing the game in possession of only four victory cities at the end of 1945 (i.e. end of Turn 11): Paris, Rome, Tokyo, and Shanghai.

It was a lot of fun, and we are going to start our next campaign later this month.

My son and I knocked out a game of Storm Over Stalingrad. My Germans received an amazing hand of cards on the last turn (couple of Overruns, combined with Pioneers to negate terrain defenses) which sealed the fate of the city in my favor.

Roma Invicta?, one of the mini-games that are included in Dr. Sabin's Simulating War.
Even though it is a very small game, there are enough tough choices for both sides for repeated play.
An excellent game if you want to experience the historical predicaments for both sides.

I had a final chance to play some games with Agung the night before I left Indonesia for the rest of the year.

We played FAB: The Bulge. I took the Germans and managed to win some key battles and then surround and envelope his never quite complete line. I won at the first sudden death possibility. He'd asked me to play competitively and so I did.

After thrashing him badly, we decided to give the Agincourt scenario from Men of Iron a go. I took the French. I boldly charged to my death and achieve just about nothing...it was terrible.

I'm looking forward to all the games I'll get to play this year, but also to seeing Agung again next year and keep up the gaming.

I also won a PBEM game of Paths of Glory as the Central Powers. My opponent surrendered as his Italians had been crushed and I had just enveloped a large number of his Russian Armies. I had waited till turn 11 to really unleash though.

Finally got Band of Brothers: Screaming Eagles to the table for some face to face play at SNEW (Southern New England Wargamers).
My opponent Matthew and I played scenario 2, had so much fun, we dove right into scenario 3. By the time we finished, I think we had a pretty good grasp of the game and mechanic. Now it will take time to hone my small tactics skills as doing stupid things ends up with a large pile of dead units.
As a note, charging unsuppressed machine guns across an open area = suicide!

My PBEM game of A Most Dangerous Time wrapped up--I conceded after Oda Nobunaga snuffed it and two large enemy formations were descending on Kyo to apply the finishing touches.

A long-running PBEM game of Here I Stand finished yesterday with France coming out on top after 7 turns. My Onion Hats finished in next-to-last place on a measly 20 VP after I suffered the indignity of the Pope seizing Athens after I was out of cards on the final turn.

Wellington- A four player game. Two of us hadn't played before, the other two it had been a while ago since they played, so we had a lot of referring back to the rule book and I am sure there were rules we messed up. I would play again, hopefully soon before I forget the rules.

Sekigahara: The Unification of Japan- I really like this one even though I find it a real up hill battle for Ishida.

I have a cunning plan
mbmbmbmbmb
I finished off a pair of ASL scenarios over the weekend.
The first was FrF12 - The Fields of Black Gold from Friendly Fire. It was a serious blast - I was able to capture the big hill ok, but it took too long too hammer flat the commissar on the back slope, which meant that although I could dump a ton of fire on the smaller hill from above, I didn't get enough firepower to clear it and I failed to resolve the last 2 close combats there to finish the game. It was a loss, but a close one and hella fun. Friendly Fire really do make the best third party scenarios.
The second was Hell for the Holidays from the new Winter Offensive pack. This one I won, mostly because the Germans didn't have enough infantry to capture buildings and keep the surviving Americans from sneaking around back and recapturing the buildings as the Germans move forward. Good fun, but not a classic.

Played three games of Wiz-War (eighth edition) last night. managed to win all three, but only because the other two players had never played before.

Note that this game has "War" as part of its title, and there are Line of Sight rules so it is applicable.

Besides, we will probably start WiF Final Edition in two weeks and will not likely finish in time for this thread.
