Well I've got 30 minutes before my next turn. Time to admire the box art. Hmmm, is it cold in here or just me?

Wargamers use the terms tactical, operational, and strategic to describe the scope of the game.

Strategic refers to games that cover a theater or a war. Your units represent 10,000 to 100,000 troops. Turns represent a month or more of time. Politics and economics are often part of a strategic game.

Operational games typically cover a battle or campaign. Turns range from hours to day and your units from a few hundred to a few thousand troops. The Battle of Gettysburg would be a good example of an operational subject.

Tactical games consist of units of a single soldier up to maybe 100 or so. Turns are generally seconds to minutes. The player typically concerns themselves with cover, line of sight, type of weapon, morale, elevation of terrain etc.

The above definitions are not absolute. There are other subdivisions (e.g. Grand tactical) and some games cross boundaries. For example, many strategic Vietnam games use smaller units and weekly turns.

So, in a wargamers mind, World in Flames, Here I Stand, and Paths of Glory would be considered strategic games

WORLD IN FLAMES - 9 plays

Yes, you will be shocked* to see that my most-played** game in 2016*** was World in Flames. The Monday Night Gang (Bill, Steve, Doug) wanted to try WIF, so I did a rules explanation and we played the short Barbarossa scenario. Good fun, though I don't think any of the three will become full time WIF players.

*This is meant to be sarcasm. Unless you are one of those people who think my user name is wifiwendell because I'm an audiophile, in which case you may really be shocked.

**Allow me to elucidate. For most games, I record the game when it is completed. With WIF, for reasons lost in the mists of time (i.e., 2007 when I got on BGG), I record each session as a play. Since most of these sessions are three hours or longer, I feel it's justified.

***As in, last year.

World in Flames Collector's Edition

Quote:
International award winning WWII strategy game. Largest boardgame ever made, 2.28 m2. All major aircraft, ship and land units included.

It is the dawn of September 1939, and the dark clouds of war hover over the globe. China and Japan have already been at war for more than 2 years and now a Continental war is about to become a worldwide war, a World in Flames.

World in Flames can be played from 2 to 6 players (and can even be played solitaire). There are 20 campaigns you can play, from the hour long Victory in The West campaign to the 150 hour Global War mega campaign. World in Flames is the ultimate gaming challenge.


Project by Harry Rowland

AU$ 149 (~$118) pledge level to get the "classic" game
AU$ 299 (~$238) pledge level to get the "deluxe" game
AU$ 599 (~$476) pledge level to get the "super deluxe" game

This project will only be funded if it reaches its AU$ 50,000 goal by Mon, October 2 2017 5:00 PM EDT.

Actually it is the lack of players that makes me play this less.

That said, the last time I played I had several expansions mixed in and IIRC some pieces pulled out for some reason.... Anyhow, I dread going back and sorting things out. So much so that I have actually contemplated buying a whole new unpunched set just to avoid that hassle and to make sure I get everything right.

I still need to inventory this one, but man there's a lot of stuff in there. Another three dollars at a flea market.

Guess I'll have to search the game's page for a good inventory list and token scans...lots of counting in my future!

[edit]
Well, maybe there won't be much counting to do. It appears that nobody has scans of the counter sheets for the older versions. The rules book in this copy says it's the third edition, two of the maps say second edition, and a third map says fourth edition.

So I don't know what I have or how I'll inventory it.


I found the frames for the counter sheets in the bottom of the box. That gave me the counts I needed, and count I did. It's complete!

It's Halloween! Time for some monsters! We'll start with a game with a monster cock on the cover.

Final Edition (which is basically the latest rules and maps and stuff) unpunched.


Not enough monster for you? How about a guild classic!
Vietnam 1965-1975

This is a player's copy. There is a stain on the map (does not effect readability) and some counters are reproductions, but you can finally get this gem on the table.


What's that? You want more monsters? Well, time to summon the elder gods in everyone's favorite Cults Across America.

Unpunched and with two packs of extra blank cards!


I'll cover the first $30 in shipping.

Last month I experimented with a Barbarossa '40 gambit, and discovered that's just not a good idea. Still had the WiF itch to scratch, though, so now I'm exploring the Spanish Gambit.

I've reached Jul/Aug '41. Spain has fallen after a French AND Chinese surrender in the Fall of '40. Japan, chafing under the activity restrictions of being a neutral power had declared war on the Commonwealth in late May/Jun '41 and have seize Malaysia, but severe weather is holding up operations against Singapore.

Italy, feeling left out after being tossed out of North Africa by the Brits (the only bright spot in the Med for the Allies with Malta lost, too), has gone to war with Yugoslavia and won the initial battles in the mountains at the frontier. Hitler has graciously allowed Hungary and Romania to support the Italians in their quest for adequacy.

It's just as well, though, that Libya is lost. The Italian fleet has been ground down to a nub in the constant fighting with the British and French fleets and it's not likely they could have sustained the connection much longer anyway.

So, will the Germans get enough down to The Rock in time to take it out? Will Mussolini finally do something right? Can Japan actually make headway against the British? I'll find out!

I've had a WiF itch recently, and I'm using Matrix WiF to scratch. This run is to explore what are, for me, some non-standard strategies to see how they play out. I may, or may, not pursue to a logical conclusion, much less to the end, but we'll see.

First, Japan went after Russia as soon as it had everything in place, and with the end of the current Jul/Aug 40 turn, should be ready to force a peace. Not shocking for many of you, but not one I've done much with myself.

More radically, especially for me, I opted for a Russia first strategy with Germany. Basically, I left screening forces on the French front and kept the bulk of the Wehrmacht in Poland after its conquest. As soon as I had good weather (Mar/Apr 40), Barbarossa was launched. I'm in the middle of the Jul/Aug turn, as mentioned above, and AG North has half-surrounded Moscow, while AG South has recently taken Kiev.

So far, so good, but it has come at a price. The Chinese are making modest headway against the Japanese with their attention turned north. More importantly, the French were able to push into the Rhineland, pushing as far as Cologne before the Germans were able to scare up enough troops to hold them on the west side of the river. Yugoslavia has joined the French, and ultimately forced Italy into the war by invading Hungary. Italy has been in the war against Russia and Hitler threatened to cut them off the BP subsidy they were getting if they didn't do something to help against Yugoslavia.

It's turning into a tangled yummy mess.
