Hi Grogheads
« on: October 24, 2021, 09:19:38 AM »
Hi! Some of you might know me from the old ACG forum as Stryker19K30 but I decided to finally look for a new community to post in.  I'm a former M1A1 Tank Commander and Stryker Vehicle commander.  Now I'm just an old greybearded wargamer.  I play old cardboard hex and counter, miniatures (1/6000 pre-D) Age of Rifles (10mm) and modern (28mm) as well as computer gaming.

Oh and I'm American but I live in Saint Petersburg, Russia.

Welcome!   :bd:
A War of a Madman's Making - a text-based war planning and political survival RPG

It makes no difference what men think of war, said the judge.  War endures.  As well ask men what they think of stone.  War was always here.  Before man was, war waited for him.  The ultimate trade awaiting its ultimate practitioner.  That is the way it was and will be.  That way and not some other way.
- Cormac McCarthy, Blood Meridian


If they made nothing but WWII games, I'd be perfectly content.  Hypothetical matchups from alternate history 1980s, asymmetrical US-bashes-some-3rd world guerillas, or minor wars between Upper Bumblescum and outer Kaboomistan hold no appeal for me.

I guess it's sort of nice that the word "tactical" seems to refer to some kind of seriousness during your moments of mental clarity.
