Christmas Day Pictures of Global 1939 Map and Starting Set Up


  • 2018 2017 2016 2015 Customizer

    I wanted to share pictures of the Global 1939 Map, I bought at Historical Board Gaming. I bought the supplement set, you need to complete the set up. It literally took me all day to set it up. This was the only place in my house it would fit, so this urged my wife to tell me, I needed a man cave and to start saving up for it, LOL. For those of you who are thinking about buying this map, the TV in the background is an 82 inch projection TV, and this map is wider than that, and this this a big TV, I’m telling you.

    This was all worth it because the master plan was to get my man cave approval! 😄

    Enjoy the pictures.

  • Good job. My wife’s answer to the same problem was “looks like you need to clean the basement to make room now doesn’t it?”

    Thanks! I’ve been working on her a long time. I just push enough to make it happen. I did have to compromise a little. She wants me to build a porch to the man cave  with potted plants and a place for her to sit, but the inside, I told her she is not touching. I have to win one battle at a time, LOL. 😄

    Kids sometimes use a crafty technique to get what they want.  It goes like this:

    “Mom, can I have a baby brother?”
    “Uh, no dear.”
    “Okay, then can I have a dog instead?”



  • You are definitely going to hurt your chances of anything good happening if you end up knocking over that “tea” onto the white carpet. 😮

    I just got back from Colorado and just saw your response. It made my day. Sorry, I’m just now responding. My grandmother is really sick in the hospital and they say it won’t be long before she goes. I left Texas the afternoon I posted this, and just now catching up on posts. When your married, you have to be crafty, LOL.

    Thanks for this, I needed a good laugh after the week I had.

    Glad you liked it.  I’ve never really given any thought to what the adult version of this kid technique would be, but I’m sure the concept is transferable.

    John,

    ––Good luck on your now Officialy sanctioned ‘man-cave’. I’m looking forward to some real wars on our G-39 maps. I’m probably going to go ahead and make a new gaming table for my maps so whether we are in Paris, Longview, or Shreveport we can have our wars. I’m definately looking forward to this Awesome game!

    Happy New Year,
    “Tall Paul”

  • You should definitely get some sort of protective layer for that map.

    I’m going to at some point. Until, I get a permanent place to play, it is rolled up in a cylinder tube. I’m going to have a man cave built, and then I will work on things like that. I’m going to have to either buy or have someone build me a table to fit the map. This is the plan, anyway. 🙂
