That's pretty damn cool.

I actually don't really like games.

It's completely unrealistic but stupidly easy and fun to play (especially with beer)

It also makes me think of this vid from War Thunder for some reason.

I've got a set of the Tanks German dice (for use in Nightfighter Ace/Interceptor Ace, and other such games) and a set of Tanks Soviet dice (for Pavlov's House). Great dice!

Stillman's stuff has been out for a bit.  Honestly, was hoping to lure Darwin to the table with their modern game which Stillman is working on.

Figured y'all would find the system banal.

This is one where I'm not afraid to say we could get two game in a session.  Crazy light, but seems fun.

You wanna tank?

WE TANK!!!

make sure to drop some advance teasers in the wargaming groups on FB and maybe pick up a new player or two

Random acts of genius and other inspirations of applied violence.

For some reason, I can get it to run. I'll unsubscribe and try again.

OF course my PC up and died on me two days ago.  Getting a replacement tomorrow.  Dunno if I'll have it up and running by Saturday afternoon but I hope so.

Man, I hate setting up a new PC....

Well, you had best...

After all, what's better than Barkmann's Corner at Barkmann's Corner?



This is the road North to Le Lorey so Barkmann was coming at the camera.
