You have HOW many games going on?



  • Yep, that is CG.

    Yes, it is an avatar created through a computer.

    And thanks for the positive feedback!



  • Axis and Allies is kind of Captain Obvious for me.  You either keep going with what’s working, or switch to a different plan if your plan isn’t working.

    “Working” doesn’t mean you have to be killing everything.  For example, 1 German tank in Africa while the Allies have nothing there is “working” pretty damn well.

    In that light - the only thing I REALLY need to keep track of is which side is which.  Because my opponent might just say “um yeah . . . you’re the Axis, srsly!” and I’ll be like “wth, how did I get in this mess”.

    So basically - if I know which side I’m playing, I just look at the board and do whatever needs doing.

    It is very rare for me to NOT know what to do; that sort of thing is usually from a mixup over sides.

    TripleA should have a function that lets each player write notes, then when both players hit an “end game” option, they could read each others notes.

    Hey NPB, where ya been hidin’ lately? Haven’t seen you around here in a while?  Did you eat too many field mice and couldn’t reach your keyboard or what?  😛 😉 😄



  • Actually, I moved.  And they shifted my department at work, so I had to stay late and work overtime.  So I haven’t even set up my new place’s internet connection, zomgzorz.

    But they shifted my department at work again, so I have extra time.  And an internet connection.  Teeheez.

    I’m not really worried about getting into trouble for posting at work.  I actually asked people for work so many times, they get annoyed looks on their faces and say “go away”.  Hell, I even asked different departments.

    XD

    I’m pretty sure they’re gonna find something for me to do . . . but until then, an owl’s got some back posting to catch up on.

    Well, that’s the OFFICIAL story anyways.  There is a much more exciting story involving two hamsters, a golden eagle, and Nicole Kidman.  But they said it’s a Secret, and I Can’t Tell.

    Well welcome back.  We always deplore…er, I mean love to hear you expound on the many topics here on the boards.  Don’t forget to tip your local mod on the way in.



  • Thx for the welcome.

    I already tipped the mod to look the other way.

    :evil: 😉 :roll:

    BTW, hawt avvie, Jen.

    Umm, Jen has a big enough head as it is.  But the fellas around here act like they are starving animals or something . . . sad, sad.  :lol:

    At the risk of missing the obvious, may I ask what “Newpaintbrush” means?  I have been wondering about that one.


  • 2007 AAR League

    Also, there’s no way that someone with Jenn’s amount of life experience looks like that avatar - multiple masters degrees, ten years in the service, kids and a teaching career? That avatar looks 19 years old.

    Besides, we know Jenn’s really a guy, given her difficulty distinguishing the colors on the Mapview board. So I call Shenanigans on all her avatars.

    And I also want to know what NPB means.

    At the time, I was painting miniatures as a hobby.  I wanted the name “oldpaintbrush” on account of how I’m a crochety nut case (online), and because I had a lot of old paintbrushes.  Seemed right.  But the name was taken, so I figured - well, I always keep buying new paintbrushes, so I signed up as newpaintbrush

    /old man mode

    I’ve really got to get a more serious email address for business purposes.  Oh wellz.

    OLDPAINTBRUSH was taken?  That’s it?  I’m not sure which to be more surprised at – the fact oldpaintbrush was taken or . . . oh, never mind.


  • 2007 AAR League

    That’s definitely an interesting story.  And NPB sounds better than OPB.  If you managed to forget the “P” when typing you might accidently end up with OB…but I guess the joke doesn’t work too well since you need to have BO and not OB, but hey, I tried. :roll:
