And am now having fun on a number of projects related to wargaming without actually playing any!  :)

Love Gary Grigsby stuff...especially the hard core ones: War in the East, War in the West, Eagle Day / Bombing the Reich and War in the Pacific AE. So would love to see these in discussions...maybe an organized co-op game?

It is funny you mention the co-op game. I was a leader of one side in a co-op side game that lasted two years and am still involved in another although with less time commitment needed. They turned into amazing games, but also huge beasts to run. The drop out in Gary Grigsby game is large, so many solo players never get to play a mid or late turn campaign of the game because their opponent leaves. At least with the coop games someone just covers until a replacements was found. In the end we had over twenty players over two years come and go, and in one case a co-op game ended with no one in the teams from the originally joiners.

Even though the games sound superficially like they can be run by teams - for example war in the East can have a North commander, Centre commander and South commander for each army group - this is actually misleading. There are so many interlinkages that we actually made a team protocol to manage how the team could overcome this. Indeed for the last two years I have spent more time managing teams to enable them to play a co-op side than actually pushing units through hexes and pressing attack. I could write long articles about it now. And might well bore grogheads to death with a few here ....  :o
