The next installment for Field of Glory II is coming and nobody will be able to stem the tide. According to our contacts at Slitherine, Wolves at the Gate “depicts the epic struggles that newly forked European kingdoms had to face for their survival during the ‘Dark Ages’, a long period of recurrent conflicts that eventually gave birth to Europe.

Panzer Campaigns: Japan ’45 – A Grogheads AAR

Japan45

The latest, hot off the press game from John Tiller Software is Panzer Campaigns Japan ’45. It covers the planned, though never actually launched, invasion of the island of Kyushu code-named Operation Olympic. Kyushu is one of the main islands in Japan and its capture was deemed a priority essential as a jumping off point to the invasion of the rest of the Japanese home islands. It fortunately never came to pass as Japan surrendered in August 1945 following defeats throughout the Pacific, military collapse in China and Manchuria, a declaration of war followed by a blitzkrieg from the Soviet Union, and to cap it off, atomic bombing of their cities by the USA. They were in a really bad place with no way of achieving strategic victory.

What The Heck Is Gus Doing?

Hi. Yes, it’s been a while. Once I fall off the wagon of writing regularly, it’s difficult to get back on. You know how it is. So this bit you’re reading right here is my attempt to get back on the wagon.

Nuts! 4th Edition – Pzrjager Goes on Patrol!

nuts

Today I’ll be doing a tank patrol as the Americans in Normandy using NUTS! 4th Edition and Tabletop Simulator. I’ll be using the rules for solo gaming.

Setup

I have a platoon of three M4 75mm Shermans, each with a tank commander (TC) Rep of 5, and the gunner, loader, driver, and bow gunner with Reps of 4. Rep represents things like skill, experience, and training and will determine how well our crews fight, drive, and react to certain situations. I won’t be playing with any “Star” rules, which give your “main character” many opportunities to escape damage or death.

To keep things simple all enemies will be a Panzer IV F1 platoon. Their TC will have a Rep of 4 and the rest of their crew will have a Rep of 3.

What’s Gus Playing? Wolfenstein 2 – New Colossus!

I don’t play nearly enough shooters, or ‘blockbuster’ games.  I am at the age now where the phrase ‘blockbuster’ just turns me off – I guess I’m jaded.

That said, I could not help get wound up in the hype surrounding The New Colossus. And you know what? The damned game delivered. Why it has ‘mixed’ reviews on Steam is beyond me.  I don’t even care.
