I think UCG has too much piss, vinegar, and chips in him to be swayed into our camp  ;D

-Unboxing videos are a waste of time.

-Twilight Struggle is not a wargame.

-Counter clipping is a waste of gaming time.


And if you want to do anything about it, I'll be outside.

He has his redeeming features, though. A painter of mini's par excellence, for one thing. ;)

Reading Advanced Tobruk rules at night is a tried and true cure for insomnia

I laboured long and hard with ATS a few years ago, and it does have some good idea's, but the rulebook was hard work to get through as it was not very well laid-out. I think I remember reading somewhere that they had been re-written it, but I had lost all interest in it by then. Also, the plain maps with lots of overlays , whilst being a good idea, was a pain in practise.
