RE: Pacific General
Oddly Enough, I never played Pacific General. I literally wore a hole in my Panzer General I disc, played a lot of Panzer General II, played People’s General until I realized how broken the Chinese engineers were.
RE: AA fantasy Baseball league
More power to you guys for being able to play Fantasy baseball. I have an arduous task every year running Fantasy football, and that’s once a week. I don’t know how you do it, but I do admire your dedication.
RE: Ardennes ( and the battles)
THis thread is not “french bashing” take that to the proper forum please…
I don’t think it’s “trendy french bashing” to point out the number of flaws in French strategic military thinking in the 20th century. The French historically (and by historically, I mean 1500-1865) always operate from a position of strength. The rapid success of opposing powers at various stages in combat has led to the myth of the poorly prepared France.
Additionally, am I missing something about hating on the French? I remember the vitriol towards them in 2002-03, but five years later, is there still as much of an active disdain for the French?
RE: Tsuro - Neat new board game
Wait did Avalon Hill get into the soap business? I have soaps like those in my bathroom. They smell good too.
The ones we’re not supposed to ever touch? Along with the towels we’re not supposed to use to dry our hands?
Tsuro - Neat new board game
I’ve been playing this one for a few weeks with friends, and I decided to let everyone on the forum know about it. Tsuro: The Way of the Path is a board game that showed up at my FLGS last month. The object is really simple. Players alternate placing tiles on the board that create intricate paths. It’s a lot like chess, and you have to remain on the board longer than everyone else. It’s a Wizkids product that doesn’t involve pre-painted miniatures.
RE: HALO 3
Smoke grenades would be awesome. Some games just don’t do them right, but when they get them correctly, it’s an awesome tool. There’s a map in Red Orchestra that’s nearly impossible for the assaulting Germans before they put smoke into the game.
Experience with shooters, especially Half-Life mods, has taught me that smoke grenades pose difficulties mainly because they put such a strain on PC hardware. I used to loathe smoke grenades in Counter-Strike that I disabled them given the chance.
RE: Which WWII fighter would you fly?
I’d want to give the P-61 a try. It seems like an interesting airframe to manipulate. And, I have a copy of the pilot’s manual.
RE: WaS Collections
I’ve bought a case of boosters, an extra booster, and two starters. I’m 9 rares and 2 uncommons short of a set, so I’m getting a second case. Hopefully I’ll have enough trade fodder to finish the set. My biggest problem is I got none of the big US rares out of the box, so I’ve had to buy/trade for them.
RE: Which units are not worth taking out of the box?
US: Keep the mortars, throw the flamethrowers in the box.
UK: You don’t need more than a couple of engineers
Generic: Ditto for commanders
