911 7/4/2022 11:36:00 PM Turn 9 Shannon M Message Yes, I've got a lot going. Think I gave you the list recently. The Here I Stand game finished last Monday.
910 7/4/2022 7:46:00 PM Turn 9 Shannon M Message I'm off on July 4th and 5th. It's about 5 pm here now on July 4th. I'll be hiking for part of the day on the 5th but will try to do another move.
909 7/4/2022 6:45:00 PM Turn 9 Jeremy R Message Wasn't expecting a move so soon - are you on vacation?

Haven't played Sword of Rome in years - can't remember much about it. There again, I don't play many Ancient era games. Not that I'm against them, it's just that they don't seem to do it for me.

One way or another, have finished multiple games recently, so am currently only playing another (teaching) game of TCW, and Crusader from SPI's old North Africa Quad. (Crusader's not much of a simulation, but my opponent wanted to give it a go and it's simple, so we're plodding along in an ahistorical way.) Expect I'll start something else soon, but Summer is always a slow time for new games.

I guess from what you have said, you have quite a few on the go?

All yours.

906 7/4/2022 4:40:00 AM Turn 9 Jeremy R Message Forgot Rolla isn't a VP city. Go ahead and move McDowell to 1005 instead.
905 7/4/2022 3:44:00 AM Turn 9 Shannon M Message I like God-Kings. It's like Sword of Rome in some ways but very different in other ways. I bought the game before it became collectible.

Are you playing online with any other opponents? Which other games?


904 7/4/2022 3:41:00 AM Turn 9 Shannon M Message That's okay on the errors. Not a game breaker.
903 7/4/2022 3:40:00 AM Turn 9 Shannon M Message Yeah, layoffs suck. There will be some fallout in the next few weeks.
902 7/4/2022 3:40:00 AM Turn 9 Shannon M Message I don't think you can put McDowell on the depot in Rolla. See 10.3.1 and 10.3.2. Then let me know where you want him.
901 7/2/2022 7:42:00 AM Turn 9 Jeremy R Message Oh yes... mostly, the weather isn't that bad here. We have the sea all around and we're on the business end of the Gulf Stream/North Atlantic Drift, so it doesn't get nearly as cold as the same latitude in Canada/Alaska. (It can get cold in the Cairngorms, but they're further south.)

It doesn't usually get too warm either, but I see that as a good thing. The main thing up here is the wind. The highest recorded speed in mainland Scotland is 173 mph; in Shetland, it's 197 mph (at least, that's what the equipment recorded before it blew away.)
900 7/2/2022 7:29:00 AM Turn 9 Jeremy R Message Bummer about the layoffs - been there, got that T-shirt - it's not fun.
899 7/2/2022 7:27:00 AM Turn 9 Jeremy R Message There was a time I bought most everything GMT produced, but since they started putting out second and even third editions of games, I became more careful.

Having said that, I think GMT's quality control is considerably better than Compass - I bought a few editions of Paper Wars, but didn't continue because the writing was so bad. Have also seen criticism of their remakes of old games. Hadn't heard of God Kings, though. (If you're interested in that sort of thing, there are some good documentaries on YouTube - for example, see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jpAphcaVJIs)

I have quite a lot of European wargames - some of SimTac's production values are on a par with Martial Enterprises'/Clash Or Arms' La Bataille series - and a few Japanese ones. Several have been picked up and reprinted by American companies, like MMP and COA, and GMT sell some, too. Guess I'll just have to order one of those Polish games and see what comes.
898 7/2/2022 6:51:00 AM Turn 9 Jeremy R Message Yep, I knew you knew Cleburne was going to get it, much the same way as I knew your reaction would be to reinforce Charleston. :) Still, can't complain about Lyon's cost effectiveness.

Somehow, I managed to make the first roll for a leader twice without noticing. However, the second roll was Sherman, and I only took three leaders, so think there is no harm done.

Otherwise, thought the Union had better free up some space in the shipyards and launch some boats.

886 7/1/2022 11:49:00 PM Turn 9 Shannon M Message I believe you are right about Morgan liberating a CSA VP city.

I forgot about KY for two turns. Good catch.
885 7/1/2022 11:47:00 PM Turn 9 Shannon M Message No to Polish games. Most of my purchases are from GMT and lesser known gaming companies like Compass Games who helped design God Kings. - https://www.compassgames.com/product/the-god-kings/#:~:text=The%20God%20Kings%20is%20a,an%20appearance%20as%20raiding%20parties.

P.S. Have you ever bought any Polish games? Found this site the other day:

874 6/26/2022 5:23:00 PM Turn 9 Jeremy R Message Replying to your comments on VPs here because it takes a bit of explanation...

Union VPs

If the Union has Strasburg, you're right about it having 50 VPs. However, I thought Morgan had retaken it. (Cavalry can convert cities in friendly territory - see 13.2.1).

Confederate VPs

The CSA receives one VP per unconverted border state per turn from turn 4 onwards (21.5.2). The Union didn't convert Ky until turn 6 (when Van Dorn failed to capture Paducah), so the CSA gets 2 VPs. The other 6 VPs are for Baltimore and Annapolis, though I wouldn't count on keeping them. :)

On with the turn...

868 6/26/2022 2:57:00 AM Turn 9 Jeremy R Message There are lots of Paul Murton programmes on YouTube - all worth watching if you like the Highlands. In one, he visits a lighthouse that I can see from here.

I don't like London, never have. It's not that I dislike capitals - I like Lisbon and even Brussels - I just dislike the general air of superiority about the place. However, we're up here indefinitely, so don't have to worry. :)

866 6/25/2022 7:27:00 PM Turn 9 Shannon M Message Oh, very nice. It's the one part of the UK I didn't visit because the group wanted to spend more time in London. Maybe another time in my life.
865 6/21/2022 4:07:00 PM Turn 9 Jeremy R Message Just realized I forgot to add the 5 VP bonus for the capture of Richmond to the Union score. Everything else looks OK, though.
864 6/20/2022 4:18:00 PM Turn 9 Jeremy R Message Have lived in Golspie for almost 5 years about 30 minutes drive from Lairg, where this starts:

851 6/19/2022 6:42:00 PM Turn 8 Jeremy R Message Banks is thinking of changing his name to Xenophon.

Nope, I live in Golspie:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golspie

It's about halfway between Inverness and John O'Groats (which most people think is the most northerly point on the mainland, but it's really Dunnet Head).

Isle of Skye is off the west coast (and south of here). It's about a 2.5 hours drive from here to Kyle of Lochalsh.
