Charge! Polish cavalry tackles tanks in AAM (11th Aug 2014)

When I was in elementary school back in the 1960s I had several of the How and Why Wonder books. One in particular that I still remember vividly was the one on World War II. It had, as I recall, a dramatic illustration of Polish cavalry being attacked by ... Read More

Trenton Session report for Hold the Line (3rd May 2014)

Wargamers want fair contests. There's little sense of triumph in willing a foregone conclusion and it's disheartening to feel that no matter how well you play, you may lose. Yet it's undeniable that a "fair' fight implies a failure of gene ... Read More

Designer Edition OGRE user review (2nd Dec 2013)

Test of Fire Review (7th Oct 2013)

I rather like Test of Fire better than most, it seems. I rated it a “9” on BoardGame Geek while the game’s average rating doesn’t break a “seven.”This is a fairly wide difference of opinion, which prompted some consideration of how it came about that a ga ... Read More

Unboxing thoughts on Napoleon 4th Edition (21st Jul 2013)

The long-anticipated 4th Edition of Napoleon arrived at my door just before the weekend. More elaborate judgement will have to await a chance to actually play the game, but my initial impressions were positive. The physical presentation is good, if not o ... Read More

First opposed play of Guns of Gettysburg (10th Jul 2013)

I got to try out The Guns of Gettysburg in my first opposed play through (in contrast to solitaire playings). I'm pretty sure we made a number of mistakes so I'm not really going to get into details of how it went. I'm more certain we played t ... Read More

Has it just been 25 years?! Gettysburg 125th Anniversary Edition reviewed (19th Jun 2013)

The 125th anniversary of something isn't usually a big deal, but Avalon Hill decided it was enough of a hook to latch onto for the 1988 update of the venerable Gettysburg title. The resulting Gettysburg 125th Anniversary Edition didn't bear much r ... Read More
