This one has been in my shopping cart several times this month, but the lack of scenarios makes me hesitant. When so many games offer 4 maps to play on, will I be happy with just one?


Washington's War doesn't have scenarios, either. But it's a surreal experience of happiness and warmth on a pizza of awesome delivered by a dinosaur. In other words, pure gaming bliss. And yeah, Holdfast is kind of like that. Fast, simple, insanely fun. When you have about 2.5 hours and you want some Barbarossa fun, that's your game.

By the way, they did create an additional "scenario" where you work on "Na Berlin," but I'm not that interested in trying it. The game was designed around June 41-January 43 and that works for me.

There are LOADS of games I didn't get this month! The good news is that the number of games I didn't get is less than I expected it to be. laugh

I am still waiting for Hakka Paalle and Paths of Glory. I want to get Canadian Crucible and None But Heroes - but after looking at what I have spent over the last 3 months on wargames I am trying to have some restraint

Up Front kickstarter edition

Edit:



On a serious note though, I did order Holdfast: Russia 1941-42 last night but I will not receive it by tomorrow so I guess that counts.

I'm still waiting patiently for ATO to finally publish issue #43, Islands of the Damned. I thought it would be out by now. At least it's at the printers.

I didn't get World at War: Eisenbach Gap and several other titles in the series. Lock 'N Load decides pixels trump cardboard, I guess.

I didn't get Hearts and Minds: Vietnam 1965-1975. Last years reprint run was like what, five maybe ten copies?

I didn't get Warriors of God. Nothing like taking a smash hit wargame title and let it sit on the back burner for years on end.

Word up! (just when you thought that expression died)

Warriors of Japan is gonna get there first, and we are always looking for a few good men (24 to be exact for pre-order).


$16 Shipping on a $33 Pre-order is a tough pill to swallow...

This month I did NOT get Unconditional Surrender! World War 2 in Europe.

I didn't get either

this month. Although there is good news on both fronts. MMP just charged my account for Hakkaa Päälle!: ASL Module 14 and I am told from my local shop that Atlantic Wall: D-Day to Falaise will be in next week!

When i hear Hakkaa Päälle, WW2 is not the war that comes to mind. The 30 years' war is.

Unless it's in the mailbox now (and I think it would have to be delivered to the door), I didn't get



yet, although my understanding is that copies have been mailed out.
