It's a bit of a drive, but I'm listening...


Now, I would like to point-out that my interest is the "ameritrash" aspect of this. I can't swing a dead cat without hitting some pretty decent eurogamers.

I'm not interested due to the drive but I will vouch for Glen. He's a great guy and his gaming space is awesome.

I would love too, but I would only be able to do an occasional weekend (Sundays are the best right now).

Sounds fun but weekday evenings are really tough. I did run & organize a subgroup among the MHS ("Mile High Strategists") for awhile called the "Friday PUG" (PUG = pick up game), we would play some of the GMT CDG's like: TNW, SoR, HIS...and we talked about someday playing StarCraft tBG, or VP Shogun (now called "Ikusa" - "VP" for victory point version), but never got around to it, our regular playing location was cancelled for the entire summer.

I don't know if any of the above games would interest you, but I can probably rally some gamers for a Friday PUG of: TNW, SoR (5p, my personal favorite), HIS, VP Shogun, StarCraft tBG, Eclipse...or something along these lines.

Post here or geek mail me if you are interested.

I'd join in but probably be selective on when to attend based on what game is/games are on tap. E.g., I'd be interested in Maria, Here I Stand or Virgin Queen, Friedrich...

And I've a friend or two who might be interested as well!

Would you play Sword of Rome (SoR), or The Napoleonic Wars (TNW)?

Yep. I'm more intrigued with relatively remote time periods...for some reason, recent (20th-century) conflict themes don't catch my fancy.

Is this still happening? I'm new to the area and love war games... at least the lighter ones I've played so far (Combat Commander and the like).

I'm going to put a few polls together today to gauge interest and possible days. Stay tuned...


Well I've got "2" (myself and my friend Kevin) who are "IN" for SoR or TNW on a Friday evening, should you desire to play those games. Both myself and Kevin would be willing to play HIS, but to be honest, that game is not a favorite of ours. TNW is an excellent CDG for anywhere from 3-5 players (it's unusual that it actually works well as a 3p game); SoR is only good for the 4p version, the 5p version is the best, but it needs a couple of "tweeks" (IMHO).

Thank you for offering to host, and organize this group by the way, I look forward to playing!

Finding one other guy to wargame with isn't terribly hard to do, so I sort of 'vote' against mostly 2-player wargames if a big group is getting together.

I would like to often come, but I usually have 2 big brother big sister outings a month---almost always on the weekends.

That, and eventually one of these days I'm going into "newborn hibernation" again.

By the way, it's Friday September the 28th (not 27th).

I will get off work around 5:30pm, and will be driving from south Denver to Golden. My friend Kevin will want to play as well. I would guess we could be there around 6:45pm?

Will we play TNW or SoR? For 3p or 4p, I would suggest TNW, if we have 5p I hope we play SoR!

Do you have another game in mind?

Sweet, TNW is excellent, I'll even volunteer to be Austria, Kevin as the most experienced should be France...that just means he will beat up on me, and then I can convince all of you to attack him (remember, attack Kevin / France, a subliminal message that will repeat itself in your head).

Gosh I love multi-player cut-throat games.

I'm in, but I must admit to being more of a wanna-be grognard then an actual grognard - I will study up on both of these games. I don't mind losing, at least the first couple times ... laugh

There is always a small chance work could rear it's ugly head - I will be sure to advise if that is the case ...

My partner will be out of town that day, so I will be at home on toddler patrol. Hopefully next time!
