Working on two VASSAL games of this classic. I really like it so far. One of the games I'm the British and we're PBEM. In the other I'm the Germans we will be playing live in about a week or so. Really looking forward to giving it a go that way. The quick turnaround is a real blessing for sure.

Playing this with Grognard Dave. My Confederates cannot make a roll to save their lives. I'm making up for all the beatings I gave him in Commands & Colors: Ancients. Looking forward to finishing this one off.

Last month I got in a short USAF campaign and now I'm playing a long USN Linebacker campaign. I'm doing ok on score and haven't lost a pilot yet. I'm playing about 1/2 missions a day because I want to finish before I trade it away to Nugi in Jakarta on the 13th. He gave me Space Empires: 4X last quarter and we worked out this as a trade.

Ultimately I like the game, but I figured that if I owned Hornet Leader: Carrier Air Operations, I didn't really need to own this one as well.

I have conquered! I talked my normal Tuesday night game group (which is 4 guys right now) into playing Angola for the rest of this month. I'm super excited about it. We will randomly deal out the factions, but this will be the first time I've gotten to play it for a longer period and with the full 4 gamers. It is going to be awesome!

I'm also quite certain one of these games will hit the table and I'll probably be roped into it. I always want to like the COIN series but feel they are too scripted, too euro, and too "kill the leader" for me. For what they are I'd rather just play something else.

Just my opinion. The series is a big hit with most of the guys...hence, why it will get played.

This was a gift to me from Santa Grogs. What a great guy! After the gaming weekend in Bandung, I'm looking forward to getting home and preparing for Christmas here with the family. But in some of the off time, I'll be trying to learn this one and give it a solo run or two. After Phantom Leader is traded away and Tokyo Express is lent out, this will be good to get to the table the same year it was a gift to me.

Finally got this one to the table for a solitaire learning game, scenario 2, Alexander of Epirus. Four years ago I picked up Carthage: The First Punic War and had such a good time with the gaming group playing the mercenaries revolt scenario, I started watching for this one on EBay. Glad I got it then, the prices have doubled.

It's slow going, with frequent trips back to the rulebook.

Victor calls for a game of this historical alternative invasion of Japan home islands. As he is the youngest in the club, I am glad to host a game of this for him. The game contains two maps and two counter-sheets! A re-development of James F. Dunnigan's design of the SPI. It is both a solitaire and two-players wargame with complete rules. We are planning to play Operation Olympic first as it seems to be manageable with ten turns (Operation Coronet with sixteen turns). Scale of the map is 6.5 km to the hex. U.S. three corps were to land on the southern Kyushu. 15 US divisions were deployed to pit against 11 Japanese divisions for attack in November, 1945 and the day of landing was named the "X-Day".

Punching the counters of Operation Olympic. It's been a while punching so many counters, 280 in total, kind of being excited about its potential this upcoming weekend for a face to face game in the club. I think I will be the Japanese conducting some mindless charges to the Yankees.

Oliver agreed to play two games at the same time via Vassal! So I can get the most out of the game by playing two more scenarios: Waterloo and Borodino. I played Waterloo before and thought that the Allied didn't have a chance or it was too easy for a French win. So I suggested to add in the optional rules of leaders and variable weather, making it harder for the French. Well, you may say it is both way for the leaders rules. But the weather rules are favorable to the Allied in general for slowing the French advance. Borodino saw most of the Russians fixing in positions,in shaded setup hexes, south of the Kalotchka River.

At the end of French turn 2 at Waterloo:

The Allied seem to be in a routing situation.


The Allied was defeated on turn 3 as morale point dropped to zero!

There is no camera button for the Borodino module. Strange. Bagration and his VIII Corps stood still like a rock in Schevardino Redoubt. Napoleon was thinking the way to get around it.....

I introduced Napoleon: The Waterloo Campaign, 1815 to an old buddy of mine whose exposure to gaming is very limited. He loved the experience and decided he wanted to get into the hobby. In particular, he was interested in block wargames and asked me for suggestions as to where to begin. I mentioned all the block wargames that I know and at the mention of Hammer of the Scots, he was hooked. He ordered it straight from Columbia Games the next day. We're planning to play a game of this 2 weekends from now.
