Pacific Tide is an excellent strategic level game.

I've got several preorders with Compass which are not on the sale.

Anyone played Raiders of the Deep? 
I'm interested in the topic and also have been reading the rules for Gato Leader.

Boardgamegeek review of the game is very favorable.

I have both the WW2 titles based on the same system as Raiders Of The Deep.  I think.  That's the WW1 version, right?

While the system is pretty easy to learn, it also didn't provide much in the way of decision making.  Which made it rather repetitive.

The DVG sub games appear to provide more decision making, but the amount of cards makes me question how much variety it provides over the long run.  Judging by looking through Gato Leader which I picked up last year.

Ostkreig uses the same basic system as Pacific Tide which I reviewed very favorably.  I just don't care for the Eastern Front since I hate both Commies & Nazis.

Ha! That's why I the love eastern front. Or at least why I find it endlessly fascinating. It's evil vs. evil.

Whatever floats your boat - or puts a smack down on your evil.

Revolution Games is having a 33% off sale. 

The available games include some gems: like Herman Luttmann's Civil War Blind Swords series ("Stonewall's Sword" - Cedar Mountain, "Kernstown", "Longstreet Attacks" - 2nd day of Gettysburg and "Thunder in the Ozarks" - Pea Ridge). This is the same ruleset used for GMTs "At Any Cost - Metz"   

I hit the button on "Kernstown" and "Poland Defiant".

A huge positive: most of the games have Vassal modules.

Warning Order:

Fine Games, one of the premier retailers for older games is getting ready for a "Retirement Liquidation"

From: www.finegames.com

Right now they are selling a bunch of wargaming related magazines at some good prices. The games come later....

Ready for Retirement? Our (Pre-) Retirement Liquidation Sales
Ready for retirement? OUR retirement?

It isn't time yet, but it is above the horizon. And we are actively planning for it. Doing what *I* want 24/7.

But first we have to find homes for as many of our 9,000 items in stock as humanly possible. Can't spend an entire career preserving and selling these fine games and then dump them in a trash bin, can we?

So, while our first Retirement Liquidation Sale hasn't quite been announced, it is ready for a sneak peek if you don't mind some rough edges. Together with an astounding offer.

We offer liquidation prices on 502 magazines, and with each one your purchase at liquidation pricing you can select another mag from a sub-set for FREE! Basically 2 for 1, all at liquidation pricing.

Oh, and if you want a parts game box, for FREE!, we can do that too!
