Free Avalon Hill Wargames Looking for a Good Home
« on: July 19, 2020, 11:19:05 AM »
My allergies have struck again.  My tabletop wargames that I had planned to play in retirement have  normal aged paper smell - that I'm allergic to.

I will gift any/all of these to someone who wants to play them.  All are Avalon Hill wargames in playable condition.  All are punched, all have been played, and they were published between 1964 and 1980.  It really hurts me to lose them, but they make me physically ill.  I'm copying the rules of my favorites and will play them on vassal.

I would like to have postage sent to me via paypal and I'll send them in USPS flat rate boxes (I think they all fit).  This is first come/you get it. 

Anything unclaimed by the end of August, 2020 will be sadly, sadly donated to a Christian Charity where they will probably lose units and never find the love they deserve.

Wooden Ships/Iron Men
Chancellorsville
Midway
Gettysburg
Battle of the Bulge
D-Day
Victory in the Pacific
Kingmaker
War and Peace
1776
Afrika Korps

Civil War (Victory Games) - claimed by my buddy Toonces who gave me Paths of Glory.

Please PM me what you want, and your mailing address.  I'll get back with shipping cost.

Please play them, or at least read the rules.  I love all of these games and moved them wherever I roamed for 40+ years.

Ouch!  That postage to send two games to the other end of the planet is pricey.

I wish someone would send me a box of these.
They went so well with VITP and it
has been so looong since my last fix.

Wooden Ships & Iron Men
Midway
War & Peace
