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.

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.

Game 4: Cancelled.

Feeling pretty burnt out and need to clean up the place a bit to make room for new furniture. It was a small game count solo con, but still enjoyable. Maybe I will just use this geeklist for whenever I hold solo-cons. I do like the idea of viewer participation though and want to get to other games that I have not experienced yet!

Plays:2
What happened? I love snow! Ok, so now that I got that out of the way, I loved the look of the map, and I knew that I wasn't really a hex and counter wargmer, but heard this was a good entry level game. I struggled trying to play this solo, having to control both sides of the map, and what unfolded before me was an interesting story, but ultimately I just didn't want to invest the time to play both sides solo. I'm sure this is great with 2 players, but for now I'm staying away from hex/counter wargames until I have someone else to play with who can "hold my hand" through learning these types of games.

I had a hard time getting into Operation Dauntless: The Battles for Fontenay and Rauray, France, June 1944. I just couldn't get it. Then I realized why: this game is so exceptional that while it is unfair to compare the two, the comparison will occur, nevertheless.

This game is simple and elegant while the other tends to be bloated and fiddly. This game is a subset of the system of that game, but this game really gets it in terms of playability and that was when I realized just how good this game really is, and it is easy to take it for granted.

Besides fluid game flow, this has what I think is the very best rulebook I have come across: easy to understand when reading and easy to reference when confirming. Also, it has a second-to-none playbook, or if it is second, it is second to only the one in Operation Dauntless. Mark Mokszycki's has a serious passion for his topics.
