Sunday Summary – The No #Wargame Vacation Edition but New Arrivals Upon Return

Last week was vacation. We took along a few boardgames but the reality was we did so much together as a family during the day that evenings were down times and little gaming. The RockyMountainNavy Boys did get a very competitive game of Ticket to Ride (Days of Wonder, 2004) in with a good family friend that I sat out.

New Arrivals

While I was gone a few new arrivals were delivered. The first was two trades that I arranged before traveling. I scored a (game only) copy of Drive on Frankfurt by designer Jon Southard that was published in Counter Attack Issue #1 back in 1987. I also scored a copy of a very old game, Hitler’s Last Gamble: The Battle of the Bulge, designed by Dave Isby in 1975 for Rand Game Associates. Look for first impressions of both of these in the future—maybe even another Armchair Dragoons #TBT entry like I did with TACTICS II.

The next item delivered was Hammer’s Slammers: The Crucible. Written by John Treadaway and John Lambshead, this book bills itself as the “Ultimate, all-in-one rules system for tabletop gaming plus technical specifications, vehicle designs, timeline & background material for the Slammer’s Universe.” After reading David Drake’s early July newsletter I got worried that the curtain may be close to falling on the Slammers and wanted to get my copy before I couldn’t any longer.
