0330 19th April!

You are a chatty lot of late and that's excellent.

To stress something Doug mentioned over in his longer posting (well worth a read), there's no real substitute for communication in this game!  Yes, it slows turns down a bit, but it makes everybody's experience that little bit better.

Besides, is there anything so delightful -- or horrifying -- as coming home from work, or perhaps waking up, to find a KS missive you didn't expect waiting for you?

Last call, lads for morning orders!!

All right party people.

This, at least in the history, is where it call got really, really interesting.

Let's see what happens!

Look for a quick couple turns over the weekend as well, especially as Origins soon awaits.

My true love will be waitin'
Waitin' once we're kickin' out their hides.

DRIVE EM OUT, CUT EM UP

Whooooeeee...

OK, now the fun really starts.

However, likely the last turn until after I get back from Origins.

S!

As threatened....  >:D

LET OKTOBERFEST IN APRIL.... BEGIN! {scattering applause}

(Note: the internet has failed me, as I could not find a specific clip to explain this joke from around the halfway point of Steve Martin's modern day Cyrano de Bergerac romantic comedy Roxanne.)

Just saw a rather well done video about Kriegsspiel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-seIA9tukDs&feature=youtu.be
  Very well done history of the game in about 15 minutes.

Best part from my angle are the photographs and clarifications of Hellwig's game which I knew of, but had not seen in this much detail.

Well, and still yet more photographs of my favorite piece of furniture on the PLANET.
