So, yeah, if you'd like to stumble our way through the rules and across the map together sometime soon just drop me a message.
I'd also be willing to do the same with Labyrinth which I saw that you are also learning


Sorry to turn you down but for the moment I've got enough Vassal gaming going on. Or is it too much already...?

But you should just ask. There's enough friendly geeks around...

Or check out this thread: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/772690/vassal-pbem-newbi...
There were a few guys looking for somebody to start learning PoG.

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

Do you mean Greater East Asia War? The one you mention isn't in the database.

While it is good to see many playing Warriors of God during this Easter Holiday, I am reading some rules of games which I have played before and get the chance to repeat play with some fellas. After Julius Caesar and 1960: The Making of the President plays yesterday, next up tomorrow will be:

I am on the fast lane of reading rules. Although they are the games that I played before, one thing unique about wargaming is that you can't memorize them all - every game is unique in the model of war simulation. It does take time again to re-read the rules, just that it can be quicker.

Blue vs. Gray, a friend owns it and wanted to play so I printed off the rules so I'd be up to speed. I looked at the pictures here on BGG and based on what I've gleaned from the reviews and the bio's of the general cards I bought the game too.

Up Front, I know it's a programmed rulebook but I want to have a firm grasp of all the rules needed for scenario A before I bring it to the group, games only get one chance to make a first impression and I really want them to like it as much as I already do.

Empire of the Sun, because I think I am finally ready to tackle this game.

Also, I am contemplating making some print-n-play stuff, so perhaps To The Last Man! will get a closer look.

Fresh off the presses, I am learning The Battle of Tours, 732 A.D. and The Battle of Stalingrad.

I also want to revisit Blue vs. Gray and get that to the table soon.

Interesting to see some love for Blue vs. Gray. My wife and I played that for the first time several months ago.

I read the rules of A Game of Thrones (first edition) again last week and got in them fairly easily and quickly because I read them 5 years ago:

While I was crushed as the Lannister from all sides, I began this week reading the small booklet of Race for Berlin: The Final Struggle:

Only 16-pages with small font size - eyes demanding really. Plus, the problem of cramming the rules into such a small booklet leaves out some important but basic information like what's the Operation Track on the map, by which the designer referring to the Turn Track in effect. Anybody's guesswork to that.

Sigh...Advanced Squad Leader again.
I'm finally getting things down pretty well now though so all the time pays off. Now just to get OBA and the desert rules down.

The Habit of Victory. Played it for the first time last week with a friend and, although the rulebook and some of the charts are a real mess, we both decided that there is a good game hidden in there. We're planning to start off the campaign game next week.

Combat Commander: Europe. I'm just prepping this one for its first play. I picked this and Combat Commander: Mediterranean up in the GMT Fall Sale last year, because my wife wanted to buy Combat Commander: Resistance! and it needed the aforementioned games in order to play it. I'm hoping to be able to play it on Vassal with a friend too.

Virgin Queen. In preparation for its (hopefully) imminent arrival, I've been reviewing the draft rules downloaded from the GMT website. Looking good so far, although I still hate the existence of 1 CP strategy cards.

Pour Dieu et Pour le Roy. I've mounted the counters on wooden blocks, rather than onto cardstock, as it's easier to do and looks better. I also have a copy of the translated rules courtesy of

Liberty: The American Revolution 1775-83 has just joined the pile, getting ready for a game in a few weeks time. Probably the deepest of the Columbia block games I have. Tricky naval rules aided greatly by the FAQ here on the geek.
