Been playing MMP's THE TIDE AT SUNRISE, THE DEVIL'S CAULDRON, FURY IN THE EAST, and GMT's GERMANTOWN. This weekend I'm getting back into ASL with Scenario #3 "On More Try" out of the Critical Hit! HASL module, STONNE 1940. Haven't played in a year, so it's going to be rough!

Eric - I helped playtest Devils Cauldron and reviewed it in development. It seemed incredible fun even if the counters were a little busy. Thought the price might come down but if anything its gone even higher.What's your overiding thought of it? And isnt there going to be a North African edition?

Danielle - If your embarking on the journey of ASL I take it you are listening to "The 2 half squads" podcast?

I've been playing LOTS of "Labyrinth", and a bit of "The Tide at Sunrise" and "King Philip's War". Also getting my first look at some Victory Point Games titles, like "Fleets 2025: East China Sea" and "Caesar XL".

Hi Mark, Labyrinth really seems to be developing into the latest hit. I think Ill get it myself as long as the rules are idiot proof... How many pages? Have you heard "The messy Games rooms" latest podcast episode? A large smattering of Labyrinth.

Labyrinth is a lot of fun, but I wouldn't say the rules were idiot proof. Not yet. But they're pretty solid for a brand new game. It's about 11 pages of rules, plus 3 more pages for the Solitaire system rules. It's not a complex game, but it's quite different than anything I've played before so it took some time to comfortable with the flow of the operations. I have not seen/heard the "Messy Game Room" yet, but I'll check it out. I also maintain a web site, with game reviews and strategy articles, but I really love all the multimedia stuff that you and others are doing. It's quite a bit of work, I know, but I hope you'll keep it going.

Even though they arent idiot proof (I say that with my capacity for learning in mind!) the fact that they are 11 pages and also involve dedicated solo rules means Ill probably get it. WARNING! - I enjoy the messy games room a great deal but if you are a member of the clergy or perhaps an elderly lady with a weak heart it might not be for you! Thanks for your encouraging words about the site. Ill be trying to update it atleast 3 or 4 times per week.

Labyrinth seems to be on everyones toplay/to be list doesnt it. Are the solitaire rules smooth or is it primarilly a 2 player game?

Still playtesting Steam & Steel. Also getting White Star Rising and good old Sinai on the table. My 'biggie' has been C&C:Napoleonics - awesome game. I'm working on a campaign variant for the Italian campaign of 1796 - lots of research needed.

Hi Laurence, I didnt pursue White star rising as I have "what I think" is enough ww2 tactical games. I wish I could go back in time and make the system a mainstay of my collection though. I certainly enjoy Eisenbach Gap. Like you say for the absence of charts and fun game play.
If you want to write a piece (thats what we call them on this site... review seems to incur a torrent of intellectual abuse!) on White Star Rising and the system I'd love to put it up on the site. You could post it to my BGG address.

I've been playing Combat Commander, Europe and Med, and also Washington's War (a little simple for my tastes), Unhappy King Charles (Superb game), Warriors of God and Stalin's War.

Washingtons war.. me too. Its light but fun. Do you like the "leader might be on form, might not" rule in each combat?

I like the random element that that provides. Can't beat a bit of unexpected chaos on the battlefield. I think that's why I like Combat Commander so much. You never quite know what's going to happen next, but you'd better be ready to react to it when it does.

Yep, I think everyone needs at least one "GOD game" where you purvey the whole battlefield and literally move whatever you want whenever you want. After that though it becomes unrealistic and slightly boring. Games like Combat commander with a random element reflect real life a lot more.... silly me thinks anyway!

Playing "The Tide at Sunrise" with Mark D. On the table at home is "Barbarossa:Kiev to Moscow". The East Front Series is one of my favorites, but gives me a headache at times. I like to fall back on "Roads to Leningrad" every so often. Same designer, but an operational level game of the Russian Front in 1941. Getting prepared to play "Highway to the Reich" with the Wednesday night group.

Played Flying Colours for the first time yesterday. Very enjoyable. Apparently some consider it too bloody but our battle evoked those famous paintings of Trafalgar and whatnot, where masts are lying akimbo, this ship is aflame, that one is blazing off a broadside, and further away, out of the chaotic and smoky melee some ships still manauver in circuitous routes around the wind. Ok, so it may be a game of the painting of the battle but glorious in a cardboard and paper way for all that.
Solo I am toodling around with the hated FGA's Pea Ridge scenario from Civil War Classics. Okay, so the company sucked as I hear, and Richard Berg lambasted this game but I got it for $9 and for me alone without a vast collection here to choose from it works not too badly. Beggars can't be choosers, and it does present a playable and interesting challenge.
