632 8/21/2021 9:43:00 AM Fall 1944 Allied Message I greatly enjoyed the game as well. I will set up the VPP test.
631 8/19/2021 1:08:00 PM Fall 1944 Axis Message Great game play by you BTW. The partisan trap, the quick demise of italy, and Husky in the Balkans were all unexpected, but lot's of fun to try to counter. I had a lot of fun.

PoG is a great game too, but it took a lot of modifications to the original rules to make it more historical. BtB is virtualy the same as when it came out, which is a real testament to what a great game it it.

Lookking forward to the next game. I have to be off air for a couple hours, so start when you are ready...
