Things heat up in my latest session of Andean Abyss via VASSAL
Andean Abyss Round three in the bag. Didn’t quite get to our third prop card though. Gov’t inching toward victory but I think we held him off . . . for now.
Another 2 hours of Bloody April, instructional video content? Sure why not.
This is from a previously announced live session I did via VASSAL and join.me. Had about 10 folks in attendance in total. Interesting change of pace to do it live unlike my [...]
Abandoning the PBeM Approach, I’m Going to Play Andean Abyss Live On Vassal

As I said earlier, this game make me feel dumb and the score reflects it.
My understanding is [...]
Eclipse to the table with some friends
Taking advantage of the generosity of my friend Kris, five of us got together the other night to play Eclipse. Kris is the guy who plopped down ~$90 on the game.
Eclipse already has a great reputation and my experience added nothing to detract from that. It is [...]
Whoa, in Thunderbolt Apache Leader make sure you plan!
I ran through the introductory Thunderbolt Apache Leader scenario, Iraq 1991, the other night. I was glad to get it to the table. Naturally, for the first game I wasn’t quite sure what to look out for and my planning was poor for sure.
I purchased [...]
Red Winter: One of those games that is really smart, but makes me feel dumb
I say that half jokingly (but only half). Red Winter is a really inspired design and unlike most anything else I have played. It highlights that there are still new ideas to be had in wargaming.
Even though I understand the system [...]
