Fairytale of Friday
« on: December 01, 2017, 04:09:12 AM »
As it's Christmas



I'll be working on the DCS Harrier. Managed to take off last night and land - though the landing couldn't be classed as successful.

I think I will also play some Project Cars 2 and perhaps take my F1 career a bit further in F1 2017.

If I have time and don't want to watch the telly, some Madden NFL 18 on the PS4 is a callin

Have a great weekend peeps  :smitten:

I've got two Oriental Empires campaigns going on (one advanced and one new). I am also playing my second game of Dawn of Andromeda which is so much better than the first game they produced. I am having fun with it. I have i finish one of these, i'll continue my first campaign in Civilization 6. I also have my usual pbem (Field of Glory and Armada 2526).

Happy gaming guys.  :dreamer:

JTS x2 (Jena)

Three BETA-test games

Here I Stand -- Hard to imagine my love for this game being greater.  it's one of those I can see myself playing constantly "in the background" of other games.

Battle of Britain if my oversized map shows up.  Not playing without it...just not...although I really am liking the components -- planes included.

Tedeschi Trucks concert tonight so psyched for that! Moving my gaming computer back down cellar this weekend since my son is coming home from his co op in NYC. Rudder pedals are still down there, so maybe I'll be hitting the virtual sky soon.

Been enjoying Project Zomboid, which I snagged during the sale. Also may continue my Strategic Command game.

I was close to hitting the buy-button for Oriental Empires in both of Steams most recent sales but didn't.  What's your experience with it?  With the end of the year holiday sales around the corner, maybe the time will be right to do it.

Pogues! Well done!!

Trapped at Great Wolf Lodge in the Poconos for my little one’s birthday until tomorrow...pray for me.

When I get home I will continue being in love with Pike and Shot Campaigns and try to salvage my Stainless Steel Polish campaign.

Let's see...

1.) Having caught up on DC:Blitz I'm waiting for Barthheart to return Turn 11 back.

2.) Fire in the Grogs 2 is burning along, with the 4th coup this weekend to play. Currently the commies are winning, although not enough to put the game away during this coup. AAR eps are already in production; but I'm not sure if I'll get start posting that series this weekend yet.

3.) One of those players, Dave Markman (iirc, who should be a Groghead member if he isn't yet), scored a default win off me in Twilight Struggle when I forgot for a month that we were playing it. To be fair, he was also ahead by 6 points when my time ran out. We've already started a new game, and I'm determined this time not to fall behind (in time if not on scoring).

4.) My Red Thunder game with Yskonyn is currently waiting for my next turn. I've been waiting until I caught up with DC:Blitz, but that's done now so...!

5.) I may start working on the AAR for a full game of Predynastic Egypt that I've already got the footage for.

6.) Back during the Thanksgiving sale, I picked up a reboot (by the original dev) of an old Amiga game (!!), now called Genesia Legacy: Ultimate Domain. It's a surprisingly in-depth turn-based town-survival sim, with rules that are meant to be discovered (in a somewhat roguelike way) as you play the game -- and your village dies. I messed around a couple of hours with it earlier this week, and rather like it.

7.) Plus several other possibilities to fill in niches of time, including possibly some Age of Empires 2 HD mping.
GROGS OF CRISIS -- a four-player mp of GMT's boardgame Time of Crisis, set in the decades before Diocletian.

Me vs Barth -- DC1: Blitz

Survive Harder! In the grim darkness of the bowl there is only, um, Amazons. And tentacles and midgets. Not remotely what you're thinking! ...okay, maybe a little remotely.

I am off this weekend.

So, I am probably going to play some Stellaris, maybe Endless Space, Pike and Shot, who knows.

Just glad to be off this weekend.

Trying to fix the New York Islanders in my Franchise Hockey Manager campaign (holy bad contracts, Batman!). Took a bit of a break from Shadow of War, but I feel the need to dive back in to that as well. And I want to get Brief History of the World and Lorenzo il Magnifico on the table to try them out and see what I think.

Yup, but Kirsty isn't. May the PoS that killed her be kidnapped by a Mexican drug cartel and tortured to death.  :tickedoff:  >:(
Numbers 31:17-18
"Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him. But all the women children, that have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves."

Psalm 137:9
"Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones."
