I thought I had it in the bag with Thunderbolt Apache Leader. Those pesky Iraqis had another POV . . .
After my last loss in playing Thunderbolt Apache Leader, I set it up almost immediately for another go. Same scenario, Iraq 1991 and same condition, Surge, meaning [...]
A Merciful End to My Red Winter Game
I lost at Red Winter. Badly. Final Score: 104 – 24. As you can tell it wasn’t even close.
As I said earlier, this game make me feel dumb and the score reflects it.
My understanding 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 [...]
World at War: Blood and Bridges – Good to get it back to the table
I just wrapped up Scenario 1 from World at War: Blood and Bridges. It has kind of an interesting (and random) setup that can really impact the game. There is also a nice variety in the rules introduction as air [...]
Harsh Conditions Make For Rough Going for the Soviets in GMT’s Red Winter
Although there was a small delay since my initial announcement, last night I finally got down to my first game of GMT’s Red Winter. I enjoyed it for sure. Red Winer has a reputation for being not [...]

Space Empires 4X – Get ready for conflict!
For the longest time, our gaming group has talked about playing GMT’s Space Empires 4X. Among 6 or 7 of us, I think all but two of us own it. It is somewhat surprising it hasn’t made it to the table yet.
That changed [...]
The Great Bloody April Keeps on Delivering!
If you’ve been paying attention to my recent posts, you’ve probably figured out I’m having a great time with Bloody April. (I really need to do a formal review . . .)
I completed a VASSAL game with a new buddy and saved the logs to [...]
Memoir 44 – Still a great, fun game . . . set up still takes too long. . .
Memoir 44 seems to be one of those games that I return to again and again even sometimes with long gaps of time in between play. The recently released Equipment Pack has generated some [...]
Renegade Legion, a gaming relic (?), still satisfies!
The Renegade Legion series of games came out from FASA in the late 80′s. Ultimately it covered combat between ground forces, fighters, capital ships, and operational planetary battle across 5 games set in the 69th century.
FOr the longest time I only owned Centurion, the grav-tank focused ground combat [...]
