I have just taken delivery of Paths of Glory.

When checking the contents of the box, what is it that made me go 'Aaaaaaaaaaagh'?

10 GG for the first correct answer and paltry bonus amounts available for making me laugh.

ASL ... yes, this is my Desert Island Game. If I have to give up all my 3000+ games and only allowed to keep one, this would be it. This bloody game stood the test of time. Around for more than 25 years - simply the best.

You have a good point. The box was so full, with very nice GMT insert (is that a first?) and very thick mounted map that there was no fart.

But that isn't the answer!

Luckily not. The first American Civil War is not that interesting.

You have to, at least from a distance, look as if you know what you're doing, and I can manage that.

You realized you already own Paths of Glory and had intended to purchase Pursuit of Glory?
