This has just popped up for me Joe. Good write up.
From a NORTHAG perspective we appreciated all that the corps teams had done to stabilise things. The panic from CENTAG wasn't particularly helpful and I suspect informed higher decisions, although the PLUTON strike requested by AFCENT was also news to us, so you can imagine how that went down. I'm glad the game ended straight after I'd put our nuclear cards back in the box, or I suspect I'd have been replaced.
Pennine Megagames are still running military games - it's the First World War in Manchester in two weeks and then I've running a Poland game in Sheffield in September. I'm using the same system as I did for my Czech Mate '38 game last year. Rob and I have discussed running NOBC again as the second run in Sheffield was popular, but he's currently got something else in mind...
