...by mounting WiF on the wall in our games room...





I've set up all the maps, even though I've only just started the Barbarossa campaign, because, well, why not. Nothing like a bit of inspiration!

(My camera is sadly lacking in quality, but it's enough for me to show off!)

How are you going to get the chits to stay on the map?

Oh, I have a special relationship with gravity. We have an agreement.

Or, if that doesn't work out, white-tack. Which in my head is better than blue tack as it should (this is entirely theoretical) leave less marks. I've mounted the maps on card board and wrapped them in cellophane. The chits that are on there have been there for a couple of weeks now with no problems.

As much as I love Wales, I'm not sure I could convince my girlfriend!

I've discovered the Yahoo group, but not the Pbem, I'l check it out.

Well, since you demanded it...

The maps were blue tacked to the wall, however, we also use the room to dry our laundry, so I set up a dehumidifer (sp?) to stop the room getting damp. This caused the blue tack to dry out and the maps fell off the wall. The chits remained in place however (hurrah!), so I'm going to use small tacks to attach the maps back to the wall. I'll just fill the holes in when (if) I take them down.

One other problem is one time I was taking a chit off the map and only the front half of it came off yuk so I had to sellotape it back to back again.

Double unfortunately I have still yet to persude my GF to start playing yet. She was well up for it, but seems to have lost interest. I've read the rules, like, 3 times, so I'm *fairly* confident I can handle it. I'm starting to think I should find more opponents...

It is, however, a great talking point in out house!
