Re: <t>Further Reading: Winter Wars</t>

Oddly enough, I have that game, still in shrink wrap, story of my life. I have played the Narva scenario in Matrix Pike&Shot Campaigns many, many times. Excellent game.

Re: <t>The Wargamer's Guide to: Miniature & Board War Games 2019</t>

OMM will not be at Fall In as Dennis is getting older and the cost vs benefit ratio is not as good as it used to be. Now he comes just to play games (good for him). A few of his books may be available at another vendor he has made an arrangement with. Regardless, if its on the floor, I hopefully wil...

Re: <t>We Were Soldiers: A Veteran's Take on Radio Commander</t>

Until it breaks. We actually had a German Bundeswehr Reserve Motorcycle Courier Company assigned to HQ, 1st Armored Division for just such an eventuality. Those guys were first class, never asked for anything, always prompt, never got lost. Slept on their BMWs the entire time we were in the field. C...

Re: <t>Further Reading - The Age of Sail</t>

De Ruyter,

No really, you like the Admiral??? Shocked, shocked I say, who might have possibly guessed. Dear say, might I ask why :) ?

Seriously, I've seen naval flicks before like Master and Commander, but the large scale battle scenes from overhead were jaw dropping.

Re: <t>Black Seas: The Age of Sail Battle Game Review</t>

Hey dude, I can copy and paste from TMP as well :)! Seriously, with a moniker like yours, I sorta expected a response. Otherwise, and as I said on TMP, in many respects, that's the point. Other gamers will say "X, Y and Z" rules are just too damned complex and detailed for the level of combat repres...

Re: <t>First Look: Ultimate Admiral: Age of Sail Backer Build 3</t>

A post in the UA: AOS Community Forum confirms NO multiplayer option for the game. Surprisingly, most everyone who commented is happy about this decision.

Re: <t>Marching Eagles: Waterloo Review</t>

I just got back from holiday, so I just saw the question on the AI. First, a lot depends on what you call a competent or competitive AI. I played the Wavre scenario as the French. Historically the Prussians at the battle executed a holding action to ensure the rest of Blucher's army could march to W...

Re: <t>The Best Napoleonic War Games</t>

I disagree, its not junk. Its likely THE most accurate Napoleonic battle game ever designed . . . BUT . . . hyper accuracy, hyper detail and for uber Grogs only. I did a review of it here and this can be found at https://www.wargamer.com/articles/accuracy-vs-overkill-an-overview-of-histwar-napoleon/...

Re: <t>Historicon 2019 & The Rise of the Cigar Box Battle Mat</t>

Yes, I saw them. They are made by a firm called Killing Ground out of Maryland. Take what's next with a big grain of salt because I've not personally used them, but my comments are . . . 1. Better price point. 2. Bulkier so more difficult to store. 3. Harder to get figures to stand up, particularly ...
