182 8/27/2019 4:59:00 AM Winter 1915 Central Powers Message I live very near Maidstone in Kent.

My 2nd round opponent annihilated me. As a result I pointed out to Tom a stupidity in the rules. I had units in Calais which had to retreat 2 so they went to London and then came back to le Havre. I cannot imagine any Br forces doing that or Italian units retreating to Taranto and then not stopping. You only have to think of the difficulty of getting our forces out of Dunkirk.

I have been going to WBC (Avaloncon) since back in the 90s and won the 18xx in 1999 & 2000 but not since.
181 8/27/2019 4:48:00 AM Winter 1915 Allies Message I live in a small town in northern Spain. Santander. Where the bank comes from :)

I love this game. But in my home town nobody wants to play Paths with me. So I searched something in internet. I found the Tournament. And I joined it very excited.

In first Round I lost against an Italian player who apparently is very experienced. He told he was finalist in other editions...

My game was serious, but his was better. And much more experienced. I tried to keep a chance till the end but in summer 18 I decided to quit as my chances were null for winning.

In Round 2 I scored a very quick win against an American. Now we are playing together also.

I want to learn as much as I can before R3. Im reproducing the games of the big players to try to extract ideas and knowledge...

And play with you this other guy.

In general Im a wargamer, but with the years I play many different things.

I love card driven games, and is the perfect format to play by mail.

Im 45 and started to play in the mid 80s. Everything went more serious when I discovered Avalon hill games in the beginning of the 90s.

All started with Squad Leader, Empires in Arms and World in Flames.

Unfortunately the last two are impossible to play in the real life...

I heard you loved 18xx. Doy you know Wellington from GMT? I love it
