Let me change things up a bit by sharing with you all what's not on my table right now.

What's not on my table right now, much to my annoyance, is Paths of Glory by GMT Games.  I ordered a copy from the P500 back in the late summer of last year.  Their website claims the game has been shipping since December 27, 2018.  Yet here I am still waiting in early February 2019.

I phoned GMT last week and the lady on the phone told me we will ship that order for you today Mr. "W8taminute".  Well here it is a week later and nothing is in my mailbox yet. 

I sent them an email this morning and haven't heard back from them yet. 

GMT may make quality products but their customer service is abysmal.  Next time I will order my GMT games through Amazon unless the price is prohibitive. I strongly urge you and everyone I can come into contact with to NOT BUY DIRECTLY FROM GMT.  Their customer service is abysmal and non existent. 

To be continued.....



P.S.  By the way I'm not very happy right now in case my tone was not clear in the message above. 
Forgive me my old friend.  But I must use all my experience...to get home.

What's on my table now: ASL SK1-3 plus the pocket guide.  Haven't exactly played a game yet, just been reading rules, watching videos, and admiring the counter art  :smitten:

Panzergruppe Guderian. I haven't gotten to it in a couple of weeks but it's still sitting there, with turn 1 just barely started.

Testing out using the maps on the iPad instead of the dry erase.

GMT's Bloody April

Playing a double blind game done over vassal with turns sent in by email.

The ref is Terry Simo, the game designer. So no arguing with him about the rules....  :-"

It is 11:13am, March 24, 1917...

My flight of 4 Sopwith Pups from the 3rd British Naval Squadron, took off from Marieux 8 minutes ago and is just now reaching its patrol altitude of 10,000ft. Did a slower climb to save fuel.

Mostly sunny, with broken clouds above me. Strong wind out of the SW. Good tailwind pushing me along. But it will become a hellish headwind if my guys get shot up behind German lines and have to escape.

The flight is about to turn East to the first patrol waypoint behind German lines at Bois de Berlon, just West of Cambrai.

My orders are to conduct offensive patrol to disrupt German scout activity.

So far, the sky is empty. Except I can see a friendly BE2 to my left rear, about 6000 feet below me, struggling to climb to recon altitude.

The flight has 4 historical pilots, Capt Harold Kerby, FSL John Malone, Fl Co Herbert Travers and FltLt Lloyd Breadner
Two of these guys will go on to become Vice Air Marshalls in the Canadian Air Force....but that is years away. Today they are just cannon fodder.

"Baseball's Sad Lexicon" - 1910

These are the saddest of possible words:
      “Tinker to Evers to Chance.”
Trio of bear cubs, and fleeter than birds,
      Tinker and Evers and Chance.
Ruthlessly pricking our gonfalon bubble,
      Making a Giant hit into a double—
Words that are heavy with nothing but trouble:
      “Tinker to Evers to Chance.”

"Tinker to Evers to Chance"
"where doubles go to die"

These three players helped the Cubs win four National League championships and two World Series from 1906 to 1910.

Woah! Spoiler alert! I’m flying for the Huns in that same game.  ^-^
I didn’t read, just skipped by when I saw what yer post was about.  O0

This should be a fun way to play Bloody April. Should make for some good AARs.

Slowly but surely learning full ASL.  I've had Beyond Valor on the board for a while now (albeit with Starter Kit rules) but now I think it's time to step up to the full rules plus Yanks.  I also got Red Factories and haven't touched it, cause I'm a fuckin' idiot who doesn't like having spare cash   :DD

No I don't have an ASL problem, you have an ASL problem.   :-"
