Where's OJD when you need him?

And now for something completely different!

He was in West Virginia, last we heard from him

Random acts of genius and other inspirations of applied violence.

Here I am.  I've been in a funk for a few weeks, and not hitting any web site or doing any gaming.  I'm starting to come out of it though. 

What's up Bob.  Birthday coming up soon. WTH!  Where's the Birthday Cake emoji. 


Well, this will have to do for now.  :clown:

No worries, Mike - I was just curious to see how you were getting on with it - especially the Italian Front.

I'm going to have to take my gaming table in the living room down soon, it's sitting where the Christmas tree goes.  I have the large table in the basement, but we'll have lots of kids here on Christmas day, and I know it'll get bumped and jumbled then.  So, I'm going to start setting up one of the Italian scenarios using Vassal.  There is a module for the entire Der Weltkrieg campaign.  You can also choose to use just one of the maps it looks like. 

You interested in giving it a try with me.

Haven't been traveling too much this year.  Won't even get Diamond status with Hilton.  I was in Dover Delaware last week for 3 days, and in Huntington, WV this week.  Got home about 5 this evening.  It's only a 4 hr drive so not too bad.

With the time change, it's getting dark by about 5:30, feels like it should be 10 right now.

Yep, I'll check I have the vassal mod (pretty sure I have) and let's see if we can get a game on the go.

Sounds good Bob.  I won't be home much tonight, have to go help make 600 pies from scratch.  School fundraiser.

No worries - same here for this weekend,  got a few things happening, see how we're fixed for next week, bearing in mind the time difference :-)

Dunno - bear in mind I don't have the specific stuff for the Italian front - I only have the EF game.

There are 4 scenarios with IT; May 1915, May 1916, May 1917, and Oct 1917 (Caporetto).

Which side would you like, the back stabbing Italians, or the angelic Austrians with their German lackeys.

lol

mama mia!

Austro-Hungarians please.

We'll need to give some thought about a suitable time given our 5 hour time difference.

Bob, I promise I haven't forgotten about you.  Even taken the week off, I've been busy. 

I did get the Ottoman Front for my birthday.  Just glancing at the scenario book, it seems to have by far the most number of scenarios.  About 10.
