Hello, 2017.

2016 was full of surprises, surprises and more surprises. But whatever happens this year, let's continue to share our love - nay, passion - for games and history. I love getting to see what everyone is playing.

So, once your NYE hangovers have cleared and you have responsibly recycled you cans and bottles, why not take a moment to answer the eternal question:
What wargames are on your table this month?

At SNEW (Guild link: SNEW (Southern New England Wargamers) this month, Gary and I plan on this Mark Herman game. Gary wants to use this as a springboard to playing a full game of Empire of the Sun.
I have played EotS, but have not broken in this game yet. Looking forward to it!

Update Dec. 31st: C3i #30 arrived today so South Pacific: Breaking the Bismarck Barrier 1942-1943 is now possible.

Clipping, sorting and learning this one.
Mounted board in volume 2 is welcome addition.

Game looks quite simple once you understand the rules, but the style of rules presentation leave something to be desired for. Hoping to have first FtF fight in a week once all the clipping is done. Art style is off the charts. ADCs and counters are so beautiful to look at.

Happy New Year to all!

I've got both a solitaire/cardboard AND a vassal/skype/three-player game of this "WIF Does World War One" game going.

I can't stop thinking about it, and I wish Thursday night (our game night for FA3) would come quicker. So I guess it's fair to say I'm REALLY enjoying this.

The current game for our Monday night vassal/skype gang (me, Bill, Steve, Doug). We're going into the third turn. I'd be in Vladivostok by now if we had enough supplies, I'm sure of it.

Vassal PBEM; I am the Holy Roman Empire (as such, neither Holy nor Roman, though I do aspire to Empirehood). First turn was quiet, but much naval combat broke out in the Atlantic in the second turn, to England's disadvantage. Spain is looking very strong at the moment. Third turn should be interesting...

Four player/PBEM. My patriots so far haven't converted enough to the cause of liberty; need to pick up the pace. The cowardly British fled Connecticut and Rhode Island before Washington and Rochambeau could kick their butts.

Not a wargame? So sue me. Besides, you haven't seen how our group PLAYS this. We've finished two races in our five-player PBEM season, and are now into the third. Good group; we're moving at a quick pace.

Happy New Year!

Solo play of the standard scenario starting with the playbook. Playing all four sides.

I started this once before, but ended up with a gaming partner keeping Paths of Glory on the table for two months while we worked through it. He's off for a vacation of two months, so I have some solo time for my other games.

After this, I'm going for Enemy Coast Ahead: The Dambuster Raid followed by Hoplite.

I got my feet wet in the COIN series with Falling Sky: The Gallic Revolt Against Caesar. I really enjoyed it so thought I give what most people say is the COIN introductory game a try. Found a copy at a great price so was a no-brainer to get it.

SJW2 has been sitting on the shelf unpunched since I received the pre-order over two years ago. It's well past time I dust this one off and get it on the table - clipping counters and watching Farsol's tutorial videos to kick start the learning process. I've seen mixed reviews regarding the mechanics of this ACW operational level wargame. Giving it a spin to see what it is like and whether I want to pre-order Multi-Man Publishing's bundled release of Roads to Gettysburg II: Lee Strikes North and Atlanta Is Ours.

Since it is not really January yet I do not feel bad by posting this since it is not on the table yet. I just finished Churchill and need to read the rules first but it will be my next game to play. I got Thunder in the Ozarks for Christmas. Looking foward to trying the blind swords system out. Nice looking counters and map.

Decided to end/start the year with a classic. French won the battle of attrition, then won the race against the Prussians to exit 7 units for the win. Very close game, and plays in about an hour. I forgot how nice this little free game is.

It's been a while since I've posted to this list. The new year will be coming in with a bang. I have a number of sessions lined up with my wargaming buddy to continue our quest to knock out all the C&C:Napoleonics in historical order.

Last year I received the expansion to this wonderful game. I only managed to squeeze in one solitaire play with the new AI before real life forced me to pack it up and tend to other things. This month I'll be bringing this game back to the table. I have a gamer friend who has expressed an interested in this game.

It's time that this wonderful game was brought back to the table. I've only ever played the German solo game so I think I'll relearn this game as the US.

Of course, pictures will be provided.

I have just finished setting up Yalu for a solo run, following the completion of my solo play of Decision Games Cauldron: Battle for Gazala. I had set Yalu up once before, but never actually played it - life events kind of sapped my energy at the time. I think I'm in a better mood to give this one a go this time around.

From a quick look, seems like an interesting design, and I'm anxious to give the combat system (with defensive fire preceding the attacker's assault) and the combat supply situation for the Reds.

Finally getting back to BAR, it must be two years since I last played Fontenoy (too many games competing for my attention). Counters are clipped and I've just about finished digesting the rules. The rules are very procedural, but also have very few, if any, holes. Some useful player aids also help to reduce look-ups. Really looking forward to this solo run-through.
