A Civil War game? Surely you can't be serious
« on: January 21, 2021, 05:21:51 PM »
Amusing little video I thought the grogs would get a kick out of.  Enjoy.   8)

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.

Hilarious! I'm a huge Civil War buff and get a lot out of War of Rights, but can see how it's not for everyone.

These cartoons have a definite vitntage "1940s Disney" kinda feel to them, I love it.

Here's another one I found: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iDvlO9-dxnE

Yeah, it's a bit funky.  You have to hit the "Share" button on YouTube and take the shortened link, and include that in the [youtube] tags.

So instead of this:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iDvlO9-dxnE

Your link should look like this: https://youtu.be/iDvlO9-dxnE
