Let's see...

1.) Grogpublic umping, with the Republic nearing an existential crisis: there are three Active Wars on the board (4+ at the end of the Combat Phase, and everyone loses!), one of which has a punchy Leader -- and a punchy Feet which Rome doesn't work well against (that's the 1st Punic War); and another two tough Enemy Leaders just popped up. So Philip V of Macedon and Aristosomething of Syria are both planning something soon.

2.) Yskonyn, are you still playing our AoW3 game? I get the impression the system is just waiting 5 days and then passing your move...  :-\

3.) Working along on another mp AoW3 game with DMakman (aka Ethel the Frog here on the forums), which we may restart soon to add some more players. It's his first game and he's learning the ropes.

4.) Also working along past the mid-point of two mp games of Lords of Waterdeep. I'll have to be very careful not to accidentally run out of time this weekend on one of them! -- the early leader already timed out several turns ago!

5.) Now that I've fixed Shadowplay (by rolling back behind the newest invidious drivers  :pullhair: >:( ), I can get back to filming an Age of Wonders: Shadow Magic hotseat allied campaign where I'm playing for my nieces!  :smitten:

6.) I played my first full game of Tharsis last night! -- well, not a full game, our ship fell apart about 1/3 to Mars. It's a pretty nice boardgame conversion of something I'm not even sure is a boardgame per se! -- well, as "nice" as a game can be where the dice turn bloody after cannibalism... I might do a text AAR on it, not a video, surprisingly strong language (also: cannibalism) so not for niece consumption. Anyone who likes the theme + RNG risk management will like it a lot, I think!

Aw, man! I read the title of this thread and thought a WKRP simulator was released. I was all ready to step into the shoes of Arthur Carlson!  ^-^

The very old 16-bit strategy game Waterloo did something similar too.  Your orders were not carried out immediately; they had to be carried by messengers who had a physical presence on the battlefield and could be shot enroute.


i remember that one as well :)

I would love to see a game that focus on the higher level theatre management that has an almost RPG feel to it.

In that you are limited to what information you get on your own, you have call it initiative points that will let you listen / see certain intelligence however otherwise you have to trust your staff. And that staff has skill,, bias’s and talents that can help or hinder you.

I guess it would be an amalgamation of DC Barbarossa, CK2 and any theatre wargame.

Hope this game is more than just a scripted “choose your own adventure”

The first, and maybe most important rule, is never say 'REPEAT" on a radio circuit.
You would ask Say Again.
Repeat is a Gunfire command, meaning the last call (One gun, three rounds - Fire for Effect) for fire is to be repeated.

Correct. Does the game use incorrect RATEL?

I will try to finish my first Stellaris campaign....i am at about 2350. I have rank 3 way behind a couple of fallen Empires and wonder how it's possible to catch up with their score (i have 6'000ish and they have somehing like 25'000 points).

With the new patch, i started a new campaign of Stars in Shadow.

Otherwise, i think i'll continue my campaigns in Imperium Romanum and Caesar IV (the first time i play the campaign, ever!)
