Slim pickings

Recent gaming includes a couple of games of the new Lord of the Rings Confrontation with Les in the pub the other evening, followed by a weird abstract insect thing, erm.....Hive! I remember! Confrontation was good, but....bulky. In spite of the extras, I still prefer the charm of the little box which made it an ideal "take it to the pub in case" game.

I also played through Elasund solo the last couple of days. Looks promising. I like the Settlers thing of always starting your turn with a dice roll. Never mind thinking, just roll the dice! Eases you into your turn gently, I like that.

I read the latest GMT flyer from cover to cover. It had the same effect it always has on me....desperate to buy wargames....desperate to punch out wargames languishing on my shelves....desperate to read about wargames - poring over old C3i's at breakfast....above all, desperate for a wargames opponent....

But not just yet. The sun is shining and I'm off to Austria tomorrow, with my paraglider and only hand luggage for T-shirts and pants. Back in a week....
