Large counters and relatively few of them make the game rather attractive for the time/enthusiasm challenged gamer!
Since my last post I have been stricken with a dreadful chesty cough and cold. As a result of this, along with ongoing dramas at work and a lack of sleep has meant that I have been doing very little gaming related - even my initial wave of enthusiasm after receiving the Battleships book seems to have abated. I am feeling rather better than a week ago but the gaming lethargy is still present. I was planning to go to Cavalier at Tonbridge at the end of the month but due to other commitments this is now off the table.
I have no shortage of ideas to play around and for sure I will get to them in due course but for now the most realistic option for me is to take a look at my board game inventory. Fortunately I have a few to experiment with and being able to leave any such undertaking set up in the man cave makes it even more attractive as I can dip ‘in and out’ as the enthusiasm fluctuates (which it is at present!).
Absolute War covers the Eastern front during WW2 at a strategic level and the subject has given me many great games over the year - both board and table based. I have no immediate plans to do anything using models - maybe something in 2 or 3mm possibly - but never say never…
I may have to watch Cross of Iron again, purely for research purposes naturally….
