Happy Thanksgiving

To all those in the States, Happy Thanksgiving. Since my wife's kids are grown and have kids of their own, we are doing Thanksgiving this year with a couple of single friends. They are two single friends that have just met through us, we are getting together for some turkey and games! Turkey02.jpg T...

Re: Wait for the damned turkey!

I used to always put my Christmas decorations up the day after Thanksgiving too, but last year I wasn't in the best health and the decorations didn't go up until I was in the hospital with a broken femur. I am hoping this year my wife will let me put my Star Trek ornaments on the tree (like she did ...

Re: Valor & Victory

Hi evandro, I once downloaded V&V and printed out the rules. Then I discovered Memoir 44 https://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44/en/ , which is also easy, but includes miniatures! I have every expansion for M44 except for the bag (I don't need no stinkin' bag). Welcome aboard and read some of our ...

Re: Duncan's World War Wargame Pictures

Is this one of the battles of Gholkhin-Gol? I think I recognize that bridge from the Memoir 44 Gholkhin-Gol map set.

Star Trek: White Rose (Part 1)

Captain Douglas switched on his desktop viewer and called up the manifest of the suspect cargo container. He didn't like mysteries, and this was a mystery. The cargo container was brought in by a small tug with tractor beams only because the cargo container is too old to mate to modern tugs. Now tha...

Hard to believe that was me over 30 years ago! I was at the home of the field artillery for basic training in the spring of '85.
I just wanted to wish all the veterans a Happy Veterans Day, (even though I'm a day late)!

Re: Spreadsheets Gamer's friend revisited

I began reading my Battletech Master Rules (Revised) book again and decided to do a workbook (spreadsheet) on Protomechs. As a reminder (as I almost never play with protos) Protomechs are small mechs, larger than battle armor, but less than half the size of a mech. They are usually found in groups o...

Re: Spreadsheets Gamer's friend revisited

I made some corrections to the Vehicle Construction spreadsheet. I found that I was coming up with the wrong weight on Turrets. I also changed things around a little to make it more readable. Check this out.

Re: Anyone play classic battletech?

I've been looking at some of the newest rules in the Battletech Rule book, Total Warfare , and found I like the older books and rules better. They've added a whole bunch of new engines, armor, weapons, and equipment. But that's to be expected, as a company takes over an established game they want to...

Re: Spreadsheets Gamer's friend revisited

I have been at work in Excel again! You know from my last post in this thread I use it to create mechs for Battletech. Well, I improved that spreadsheet, and came up with a vehicle construction spreadsheet as well! Both include a combat value page that calculates BV1 values (after you enter ammo ton...
