Yesterday we had the Orlando Wargamers group gather for a bunch of historical consim-ing. Loads of fun.

Got myself the Big Boy ASL now that I am 40 years old.

Tonight we played some King of Tokyo and Ogre. Good times.

Japanese hold Mount Suribachi! Twice!

We decided to play the Iwo Jima overlord scenario for Memoir ‘44 to honor of the 71st Anniversary. 

Initial setup:

First game setup. Connor, Charlie and Sean are playing the Japanese while Mike, Jeremy and myself are assaulting Iwo Jima.

It didn’t go well for the Americans. 

Next, Mike, Jeremy and myself take the role of the Japanese.

The Marines are not able to take Mount Suribachi.

Gotta say this game was played better by the three of us. Even Charlie and his team played better. The game came down to a single man left, needing to reach the top of Mount Suribachi. Alas, he was unable. 

It was a great day. 

If you live around Orlando, or ever find yourself in O-Town, feel free to check out We would love for to play some games with you!

First game of 2016: Caverna. Not sure how I feel about this one. Made me re-evaluate Agricola again. I think worker placement as the sole mechanism in a game isn’t enough to for me.

Gorgeous game though.

What a fun solo gaming experience. First game of Field Commander: Alexander. Intuitive, thematic and insightful. Glad I picked this one up. 

Space Empires 4x, by GMT Games, is an amazing game. Strategic, tactical and thematic.

Played a game of GMT Games Napoleonics. I lost terribly as the French as there was one heroic British rifle light unit that decimated me.
