I think the great Photobucket culling isn't going to help.   I know my AARs got nuked by it.

Although (moving on to digitals) that couldn't possibly hold a candle (nothing could) to BC's Champions of Krynn AAR, which although started about 11 months ago still had more than enough entries this year to count I think.  :notworthy:

Thanks, JP. I'd like to keep it going. Along with the Champions of Krynn one, too. I'll get back to them at some point.

It's a shame that Dropbox basically killed Crossroads' AARs.  :pullhair:

He did two deep ones this year, but this one ran the longest and down to the wire. http://grogheads.com/forums/index.php?topic=15700.0 "CS Middle East: The Crossroads (West Bank, 5 June 1967) -- DAR vs Berto -- "

Thanks for the mention! I still have all the pictures, and I named and numbered them to have turn information... 163 screenshots, so maybe I'll just start adding them back, one by one. It was a fun battle, and went to the wire indeed.

Damn dropbox indeed  >:(

Edit: I found out that it is possible to share those files again, i just need to obtain a shared link, and change the url end of ?dl=0  to ?raw=1.

Lesse here:
