Weather clear and very cold over the TGiving Holiday. In between sno-blower failures, shoveling, applying salt, and scuttling between the firewood pile and the house, I messed around with too many games.
Too many? Impossible! Well, kinda. Lost all types of focus, and when you throw in damn near 16 hours a day of quality football, I was a jack of all trades and a master of none.
The lineup included the usual suspects: Heroes of Normandie, Red Actions!, and GBACW. The latter was a bust. Didn’t get Cedar Mountain started. Semi-setup but not ready to go. Played through Scenario 7 of HON a few times. Real brain teaser and fun. The Red Actions! game was the usual tactical setup, but as mentioned in an earlier post, included an armored car and cavalry. Just for the hell of it (and because I just finished it), I threw in a truck mounted 47mm gun. No revelations, but the game flowed smoothly. Have to get started on some new scenarios along with the campaign game.
On Saturday, a wild ADDHD hair emerged and I set up an old Europa Magazine War In The Outposts scenario – Madagascar. More on that in a separate post.
I had fun, it was a diversion, but no real sense of accomplishment. Oh yes, I also absolutely butchered a log pillbox for Red Actions! Ill-conceived and executed.
Limiting the plate to Madagascar and Cedar Mountain. Oh, forgot, War of Resistance next weekend with Tim.
