I am insane.

Yes, I know that people that have been here long enough already know this, but I just state in order to avoid any future claim.

This list is about the games I have bought at GMT's summer clearance, and why.

(I know there are other GL on this topic, but somehow I felt I wanted something more personal, sorry if that disturbs anyone).

GMT GAMES

I know that all (well most of) the gaming companies are very friendly, they answer as soon as possible and are always willing to support the hobby.

But GMT is far an above this standard!

GMT supports the hobby by putting out great games, but also, by providing gamers with as much help as possible (for us that English is not our native language they have a lot of material in different languages), by correcting minor errors free of charge (Fields of Fire errata counter mix) and by their promotions.

But what has exceeded the limit is supporting our fellow gamers that have lost their jobs.

GMT has, twice, given out free games to those gamers that, in this troubled times, have lost their jobs!

This is incredible! This is supporting the hobby! This is AWESOME!!!

I had to demostrate my support for this excellent company with all that I could, and the best way is to buy games from them, and also I am playtesting their games and trying to translate Fields of Fire rules!

This company deserves my time and my money.

But I was not on the best of my economics and I would need to save some money for a future trip (more on that later), so I waited until the beginning of August before making a decission on what should I buy, even if I should buy something.

Little digression here.

A few years ago, I was going out with a girl I was in love with since high school. We were very happy together and we even started planning our wedding...

BUT...

Live is not like you want it to be. She splitted, found another guy, and married him!

For almost three years I was less than nothing. I didn't want to meet any other girl as I didn't want to suffer as I had suffered.

BUT then she appeared!!

I have now met a girl that has lighten up my life, that makes me laugh, that makes me happy that is.... (ok, ok, I'll stop it!)

And she even likes that I am a geek!! (she gave me a little Chutlu as a present, and she is reading HP Lovecraft and A Game of Throne)

This was the first game I taught her and she loved it!

But, as life is not always perfect, she has won a scholarship to study in San Francisco, CA for the next 5 months, and she departed on the third of August (after a superb weekend watching THE BOSS in concert in Valladolid).

This means that I have to save for a trip to "the other side of the world", so spending money on games should have been out of the question? shouldn't it?

No!! The same day I was sad because she had left! My father called me to inform me on the conditions on certain bank if I changed my mortgage to them!

That could mean (with a few accountancy magic) almost 700 euros of liquid each month!!!

So California was save, and I was still sad, so what better way of lightening up my heart?

Buying games!

(BTW, I have not yet changed my mortgage and things can go awry, but I have already spent the money, d'oh!)

First game I got.

This is a weird one, as this one I am nos sure whether it is a P500 or a full game, I was interested on it but had not taken the plunge, but finally I did it!

But as I wasn't sure if it was a game (towards the 4 minimum) or a P500 (towards the 2) I still order the following.

I own, and have never played to completion, Europe Engulfed.

A friend of mine owns, and we have played once to completion, Asia Engulfed.

But I really liked it. And I like to have my own games. And I like to have the whole WWII. And I don't have any pacific theater game.

And I am stupid!

I have the Europe one (not Mediterranean) and I have only played it two against someone else. The rest has been solitaire (almost all the scenarios solitaire).

I like the game. I don't have a pacific theater game. It has a 50% off. I am insane.

My first idea was to buy this one, mediterranean, and the battle packs, but I thought it was too much for a game I don't play!

I am insane.

I don't have any game on this subject, and I have just finish reading The Longest Day, so I preorder this one.

I am still unsure about my preorders, but as I already had three or four preorders (leaping leamings, TS deluxe upgrade kit, HiS mounted map, Red Winter, Flying Colors) I may change them later.

In particular I was thinking in The Spanish Civil War and The Supreme Commander.... Who knows!

Chad and Kai are probably, the most helpful and amicable designers out there (in a tight competion with Andrea Angiolini). Also, they create excellent games, without tanks, so this was my second (or third depending on what you consider) preorder.

This is another one I have doubts, but we will see...

This entry is for the mounted map. I like this game, but the cardboard map is too flimsy, and with another map I can even try new things (I won't but it was cheap)

The last game I bought for me.

I have never played the GBoH system, but I have heard it is great and it can be very easily solitaired. Also, it is about a very unknown (in Spain) war and I wanted to try it (you can decapitate your enemies!!)

I hope it lives up to my expectations!

BTW, do I have to buy something different for the SGBoH or does it came with both ruleset?

Last of all I just realized that I have had a pacific love! Three games out of four have Japan as the main country!

Is this related to the fact that I was in Japan this Easter?

Is it because my GF is in the Pacific coast of the USA?

Am I insane and nothing of this has any meaning?

Thank you for listening!
