The road goes ever on and on....
50p for the very smart hardback title and 20p for the travel edition of Othello - with 15mm squares you may think it is a little on the small side for a Portable Wargame but I couldn’t possibly comment....It is magnetic and complete with 52 black and white counters that are very useful for relatively inconspicuous hit markers.
I have now purchased this magazine for two months running and I cannot remember the last time I did that! The main reason for getting this edition is for the set of rules by that very nice Mr. Andy Callan - needless to say there is a cunning plan....
The sobering conclusion I meant ironed at the start of this very brief post concerns the gaming gentlemen from whom I recently acquired the 1:3000th WW1 collection and copy of the Avalon Hill game, Jutland. He had been seriously ill for some time and has finally lost his battle. I never met with him personally although we spoke on the phone quite recently and despite his illness his passion for our hobby shone through. I had hoped to get a game in using his collection so he could see it in action but sadly was unable to get anything organised in time in the man cave for various reasons.
What I am going to do though, is to celebrate his collection and his life with a game in the next few days that will appear on the blog.
I only hope that if he is looking down from that great wargames club in the sky he will forgive the delay and enjoy the game in any event.
