Format: PBeM VASSAL, Dropbox & ACTS for dr's.

Teach? Will be my second game.

Expertise: Done a night turn.

Full campaign game, no optional rules, is working great for PBeM. I'll take either side. Looking for an average of a move a day (I can do a little more).

Format: PBeM Campaign game with no optional rules. ACTS for dice, DropBox/GoogleDrive for the log file. Keep the game fresh with an average of one exchange a day.

Teach: See below.

Expertise: A live VASSAL game that made one day and a night then not picked back up, though thats something, as anyone else who has been through a Red Winter night( coldest Winter on record... FOR FINLAND) Im guessing will attest.

I have two matches going--both via PBEM / VASSAL. The more I play this game, the more appreciate the tactical choices each player is given each round; I love how the terrain bogs down the Russian advance and sometimes it is enough to precautiously position your units to achieve your goals without the need to resort to combat.

We had a game of Red Winter; a friend of mine came to our place and I taught him the basics (as there was more than this) of the system. He played Soviets, I had Finns. Below is what we may as well call a first--while not fully closed--cauldron of WWII:

Pre-game opinions: Red Winter seems to be a very interesting wargame that displays the differences between the Russian and Finnish troops. The game seems to have done quite well on the solitaire front and having enjoyed Reds! I hope that this will be a good experience as well to play both sides. I have only learned about how the game plays and have not had the chance to play the game yet.

RED WINTER - 1 play new!

Kevin suggested this. Though the scale is smaller than my preference, I'd heard enough to be intrigued so I agreed. We played the Day 2 scenario, and my Soviets didn't make much headway. I also discovered that being on the ice is bad when the other guy has artillery. I see why this game is being well-received.

What better way to 'Finnish' off (couldn't resist ) the cold, dreary month of January then with Red Winter: The Soviet Attack at Tolvajärvi, Finland – 8-12 December 1939. Played the five turn first day scenario twice, the second day scenario once, and now I'm set up to play both days.

Such a great game. And I'd forgotten how quickly it sets up and plays. No tedious set up here. Put some counters on the board (which are conveniently marked on the starting counters, and off you go). A rare treat in today's games. And one that leads to the game being played, taken down, and restarted.

Teach: I prefer to play with someone experienced.

Expertise: About 20 games. Looking to play the full campaign, either side is fine with me.

Winter is here, snow just fell in NYC, and this is the game to play

In the P500 queue for a second release. This game includes several different length scenarios. Set in 1939, you can play the crafty Finns defending their homeland or the roaring tide of invading Russia. I like winter themed games that recreate those unique combat conditions.

This was a week of new games. 3 games I've never played before.

Sentinels of the Multiverse NEW!
Tried this out with Ingmar as part of his "keep or sell" list. We won vs. Apostate. I was Fanatic and did 25 damage on the last attack to defeat him. An ok experience, but nothing special. Ingmar put it in the "sell" pile. I didn't argue.

Red Winter: The Soviet Attack at Tolvajärvi, Finland – 8-12 December 1939 NEW!
Played the Tutorial scenario solitaire and had fun. A very short and scripted scenario, but showed off the system well enough. I think this can be a game I will like. The map looks very good. Thank you to Roger.

Mansions of Madness: Second Edition NEW!
Got to try this 5-player. We played the introductory scenario(I think) and we fell short of winning by stupid decisions in the latter part of the game. I went Insane by the way. A cool experience to play, but not too certain I like the app dependancy this game has. But will be up for more plays of this.



Reading
With work starting up again, I am back to Norwegian crimewriter Jo Nesbø as those books are fast and enjoyable to read. Now reading the third in the series.
Also read volume 2 and 3 of the graphic novel series "Rust". Very cool series and I have to check out volume 4 at the library soon.
"The Dreaming Void" is on the backburner right now.

"Running"
No running because of my foot. I get pains after standing in the classroom. Went to the doctor today and he found microruptures in the tendon in 2. metatarsel and some inflammation. Half-marathon is 4 weeks away, but looking unlikely. Not happy about that.

$35

This is for a player's copy! Map has some wear on the creases, there is shelf wear on the box, the rules have been thumbed heavily and the corners have been aggressively clipped by the previous owner.

Apart from that, it's an absolutely great game!

I rarely play tactical games, but Kevin wanted to try this and I'd heard good things about it, so we gave it a try - day 2, with the Soviets trying to seize a bridge and approach the local village (with a typical long Finnish name). Pretty good game. But very tough for the Soviets, as the battle was historically.

Had a go at this with Kevin on Sunday evening. Definitely a tactical game (hexes 425 yards, line of sight, etc) which is not usually my bag, but I'd heard good things so I was willing to try it. And it's pretty interesting. Played the day 2 scenario. Very tough on the Soviets. I never did figure out effective tactics to take that bridge. My guys would go on the ice and Finnish guns would blast 'em.

But an interesting game; I'd try it again.
