"We ought to give thanks for all fortune: if it is good, because it is good, if bad, because it works in us patience, humility and the contempt of this world and the hope of our eternal country." -C.S. Lewis

By all accounts, gaming has gotten off to a solid start in 2016. Highlights so far include Churchill, a unique and tense WWII game that's loaded with decision points. My first play on New Year's Day was down to the wire. I also enjoyed my introduction to the Napoleonic 20 series with the Salamanca scenario from Fading Glory. The components are excellent, and game play is fast and intuitive with unexpected depth.

Playing around with a number of other Napoleonic era games now. Age of Napoleon is a manageable game of the entire Napoleonic Wars that gets great reviews and plays in a few hours. The fourth edition of Napoleon: The Waterloo Campaign, 1815 has fewer counters and a larger map than the last printing, and Waterloo 200 has some innovative mechanics and looks great.

It's not just the ground campaigns--also eager to try Flying Colors, and after reading the rules, I traded for both Serpents of the Seas and Ship of the Line. There are a few other naval rules sets I'd like to try with my Sails of Glory ships.

Father-Daughter Dances trumped gaming last weekend, but I'm looking forward to Storm Over Dien Bien Phu after picking it up from Wargamers Paying It Forward. I enjoyed Storm Over Stalingrad, and a French vs. Viet Minh game will be a nice change up. Risk: Star Wars Edition probably falls into the guilty pleasure category, but it's on the docket nonetheless. This light Return of the Jedi game should compliment Assault on Hoth nicely.

Initially saw this on Rockhopper01's profile page. Awesome. The artist, Propaganda (Jason Petty), has a very powerful story.



This video is a great opening for any staff meeting or training event.
