and I first met in 2012. We are about the same age (but Steven is older) and both started wargaming back in the 1960's. Coincidentally, there was a lull in both of our wargaming activity back in the 1990's before we had met one another.

But, for 4 years now (has it been that long?) we have been gaming on almost a weekly basis. For my part, I am having a lot of fun playing Steven. We get along and the games are enjoyable, win or lose. We do not see eye to eye politically, and do not demand such of one another (but I am right and he is wrong).

I have compiled a list (with Steven's assistance) of the games we have played over the past 4 years. Our first was Antietam: The Bloodiest Day, 17 September 1862 way back on July 12, 2012. I am not going to make much comment about each game. With the passing of time, details are sketchy about how each turned out in many cases. It was nice to reminisce while compiling the list, remembering some great moments in simulation history. If you see a game you want to say something about, please feel free. And also, Steven and I are playing a new one tomorrow: Cedar Mountain: Prelude to Bull Run, August 9, 1862.

We played this. Steven doesn't like miniatures on boardgames because they get knocked around too easily.

This is a good game. I just got Ghost Panzers and planning on getting Texas Arrows. Steven prefers operational but will play any scale and era.
