I got this for Christmas. I love WWII Pacific more than other WWII theaters/fronts. There are some sweet strategic games, but I haven't found a lot of good operational games. I had my eye on this one for a long time. I read the rules and I like what I read. I've got it set up and I'm working through it solitaire. It has an interesting chit-mechanisms throughout the game.

Seanmac and I are putting the finishing touches on the Bloody Gulch scenario. I (Americans) just about have this one in the bag. We went ahead and fired up the next scenario (if this is war) about Market Garden, while we finish up this one.

Not enough good things I can say about this. When Band of Brothers: Ghost Panzer comes up, there are going to be two very happy wargamers.

Sean and I was in the early stages of this game when the Vassal 3.2 vs. 3.1 hickup ruined the game, so after I got on 3.2, we fired it back up. We are in the early stages of this one.

Sean and I are in our second game of the Barbarossa scenario. This time he's the Russians.

The dice/events of this game really hate me. I think I made Carl mad when he designed this and he put some black magic in the box. I was doing quite nicely and now I'm stuck in the mud. When Sean was the Germans, he got nice weather. angry

Ah well, still, it's a sweet game. Now I am seeing why so many folks dig this game. Before Carl puts out the North African game, I better get on his good side. Maybe he will change the CRT, so rolling a '1' is good for the attacker. That would be a big help!

I have two games of this going on: one against Sean (I'm the USA) and one with Lars (I'm the CSA). I'm farther along with Lars and I found a big flaw in the module: the CSA has no late war deck. Wow. That's a back breaker. Since we are so far along, I'm doing what I can, but all I can do is take supply points. I did make a big attack on the Shanendoa Valley.

In my game with Sean, I was obsessed with Vicksburg and he kept beating off my river attacks. He made a nice threat toward Baltimore and Washington. I'm trying to stem that bleeding, and I made a nice push down the Tennessee valley with Sherman.

Sweet, sweet game. Bummer on the VASSAL mod.

Lars is teaching me this one. At first, I asked to play the 1961 scenario to get familiar with the mechanics. I learned a couple of big lessons on the first turn. As we got to the 3rd and last turn, we decided to go ahead and make it into a campaign. I'm the USA. We are in turn 3. I got West Virginia on my side. I sicked General Bill Snyder on their helpless defense (K-State joke there for college football fans) and Missouri (all too easy to make a football joke there...one that will get me loads of GG and thumbs from even the KU fans). He took Kentucky on turn 1, so I am trying to get something going there, but I think he's in position to beat me back. I guess I'll find out. Wow -- these U.S. generals suck. How historical!

I have two games going of this. That's not a problem at all because this is probably the single easiest VASSAL game out that I've ever played. Barteus and I are in Monmouth (A.M.) Sean and I are on King's Mountain. This is a game I never tire of playing.

Barteus and I are both fairly new to this one. I played it once about a year ago and he just got it. We are playing Battleaxe scenario and he's the Axis. Right now we are fighting and maneuvering. Neither one of are desert foxes, but it's fun to learn, because the rules are not that difficult.

got on last month's VASSAL request list and asked about this. I'm not as big of a fan as this as most folks are, but I like to play it about once a year. I like to play fellow newbies at this since this is a game where memorizing the deck interactions seems to be really big. So I was long overdue for a game, so we are playing.

I'm the Soviets and so far, I have a 11 VPs on turn 1 (Big score in Asia, Olympics, and Nuclear Test Ban were all nice to me). The cards have been good, which means it will probably turn south quickly.

This game is a lot more fun than I remember. I used to not like how the opponents event automatically triggers, but after playing Labyrinth: The War on Terror, 2001 - ?, I kind of have an appreciation for it.

Capt_S and I are back in the swing of things. His computer problems are resolved and we are caught back up. We started turn 2. I'm the king. I don't think I'm doing too well, but since it's my first game, what do I know? Heck, I may be doing great.

I like it. I'll like it more as I start to see the goals unfold. Right now, I'm kind of giving it a test drive, trying out different things.

Kevin and I re-started an old game that was broken with the VASSAL change (3.2 back when it was a Beta).

I haven't played it in awhile and it showed. I brought out a supposed surprise attack to early, and he countered with an intelligence card, and then he finished taking the Dutch East Indies.

Wow, this game is a rush -- even when you screw it up

I've been soloing White Mountain since receiving this for Christmas. I'd swear the ghost of Luther has been blowing on the dice - the Catholics have failed just about every continuation and order change roll after the first turn, and have rolled a 0 in a depressing number of close combats. The best Habsburg regiment took six hits in two turns and routed, and the Transylvanians opted to stay and fight for the Protestants.

But the worst may be over for the Catholics: one of their Croat cavalry units just took the redoubt on White Mountain by storm, and Tilly is reforming his wing from open order in preparation to assault the Protestant right.

Great stuff!

Am early in Scenario 5 with my usual opponent. I have yet to figure out how to handle the Red Army on defense--I set up in positions that are exposed to way too much German firepower and then see my forces melt away before we've even gotten properly started. But when I try to do reverse slope defenses, it doesn't go much better.

Basically, unless you are sitting in bunkers at the top of the hill surrounded by minefields, prepare to take a beating as the Russians.
