1. Board Game: The Russian Campaign (fourth and fifth editions) [Average Rating:7.66 Overall Rank:2863]

Due to wedding planning I doubt I'm going to make it, but you never know. Nick told me that there will be, yet another, new version of the Russian Campaign. Do I need three versions? I have my original AH game which I bought for $8 in Harvard Square, the lovely L2 revision with a better map and bigger counters, and now a new one? It's still my favorite game, and I've played it more than any other wargame. I've played both sides, and it's usually a nail-biter. The Germans kick butt early, and the Russians try to hang on. A friend and I used to play the campaign game on New Year's Day, breaking only for supper. Bob and I played it at SNEWFEST a few years ago. It was a lot of fun. If someone wants to play on a non-SNEW weekend, please let me know.

With a few plays of Wellington happening recently, is there any interest in Nappy Wars?

Have I waited too long to try and play this?

Would also consider Churchill and surprise Wilderness War. If the mounted map comes in time might also consider Conquest of Paradise.

I'll be at GMT Weekend at the Warehouse in Hanford, CA, Friday and Saturday Oct 14 & 15. I'm planning on bringing Wellington since that's the GMT title I've played the most recently, and also FAB: The Bulge which I haven't played in a few years, but need a refresher for the game Nick and I have arranged for the Thursday night at Lobster Trap in November. And of course whatever random game I get into from just hanging out and meeting West Coast grognards.

I'll try to text Nick that Saturday with reports and pix from the GMT event that he can share with you guys. And yes, I will definitely wear a SNEWfest tshirt at the event to show team spirit for my home base club!

I've been wanting to learn Empire of the Sun and read this may be a good way to learn it. Plus I kind of like the idea of some Jutland style sea battles instead of the usual carrier duels inherit in your typical PTO game. So, if not this SNEW then maybe next month or at LT maybe.

This is another one I've been wanting to learn. I think planting a couple of torpedoes into the side of a Japanese carrier sounds like a pretty enjoyable evening to me.
