A quick game report that I was sorely tempted not to post at all. Last Saturday, Paths of Glory, against John - who was keen to learn the game. I should have known better. It's a classic gaming situation to soundly beat the friend who is teaching you a new wargame. I've done it to Nick many times. Anyway, John played the Allied Powers. I started with Guns of August and he met my march into Belgium head-on, with lots of counter-attacks from French and British armies which really marked down my German units. I had about 3 German armies in the dead-pile by the end of turn 4, and pressure was building up in the East too. We called it a day at that point, but I had not made a good start.
