Re: <t>We don't think we can wait till July for Thrustmaster's new F/A-18C Hornet Flight Stick</t>

Splunge. Originating from a Monty python, splunge is a way of saying that you have no worthy opinion and that an idea could or could not be good. It could also be a quick comeback if you do not have an answer for a question. Well, I don't play Sims or pretty much any first person game w/the exceptio...

Re: <t>Review: Japan ‘45</t>

This is a game I intend to pick up. Never thought I'd ever say this, but even with all the time in the world there are just too many good games for Tom to reasonably play w/o cutting into sleep. I jump back and forth between games, usually playing 1 o2 2 titles until something else shiny captures my...

Re: OMG: Panzer Corps 2

I've been aware of this for a while. I bought Panzer Corps 2 and all expansions/DLC when it was on sale and just.....never really liked it that much (at all actually). I'm not sure why; just that games such as The Operational Art of War IV, various Panzer Campaigns/Battles by Tiller software are mor...

It was the recent upgrades to Campaign Gettysburg (after having already become addicted to Seven Years War) and a very enjoyable Panzer Campaigns Stalingrad purchase that led me to buy Gettysburg (and Petersburg) by JTS.

Re: <t>Review: Battles of North Africa 1941</t>

Bought the game and it is quite daunting (I've only played the Napoleonic and Pike series, I've transferred all the pdf files to iCloud and look at them on an iPad while trying to learn the game. No comments yet other tnan to say this appears as a very thorough game.

Re: Does a game like this exist?

Civ 6 with a duel or tiny sized map (the 2 smallest sized choices) with game speed set to online. Under the advanced settings you can remove or add 1 or 2 AI players if needed. Leave all victory options on. I can easily play a duel game with only 1 AI opponent in a few hours. The game is so granular...

Re: <t>Review: John Tiller's Seven Years War</t>

I've been playing the game pretty solidly since purchasing this and Republican Bayonets (which I haven't gotten to yet). Most of the time, the game are spent playing on a 28 inch monitor; although I've played it on 43 inch TV my old eyes make that out ass being a tad too fuzzy. I love the game and o...

Re: <t>Wargaming for Beginners: How to make the most out of a daunting hobby</t>

I started out with Risk sometimes back in the early 60's. Many friends had copies and it just gradually progressed into modifications; -let's replace the colored blocks w/toy soldiers and tanks -let's give the toy soldiers/tanks different capabilities -let's make it more formalized by drawing grids ...
