E.G.F. March 1st (TWS)

Post by intheclear » Tue Feb 26, 2008 8:10 pm

should be rolling up at lunch time looking to play Twilight Struggle with someone in afternoon, read rules 2 times.I can play 1960 and can see the similarities and differences,between the two games,will need a helping hand though? agree that twilight definately goes up a notch. Just for you wargamers, the board is so thin I had to go and buy some perspex 24'*36 at 2mm thick ($50) did I get ripped?

Yeah sure we can play TS! :D

I've had my copy for...what, 2 years now? Never used perspex or felt the need to.

You can't put a price on perspex David :)

Perspex is that magical formula that will transform any flimsy paper-map wargame to a nice glossy mounted board beauty, to put to shame any eurogame. Which means you've half-disqualified the argument that you like eurogames because of the nice bits and pretty boards.

Now you get the depth and richness of wargames with the nice shiny hard board. Say goodbye to those pile of family-friendly german-abstracts in disguise. How about a game of ASL Starter Kit after TS?

Hey David where did you get the 2mm stuff from? Mine looks like it's around 4mm, the diffraction gets annoying!

Perspex was purchased from a factory in west heidelberg that does neon signs, had to search a few factories but this guy was able to do it and cut it to the size I wanted. I am embarrassed that a Eurogamer has needed to purchase perspex, it sounds like the first step to wargaming, has the conversion started? Is hannibal v's Carthage a hardcore wargame?

You can get some thin stuff from Bunnings - it's on a roll that you cut it to your own length.

We use it for Roads and Boats, but it works for wargame maps too.

You're not talking about that stuff which has your donkeys levitating 2 inches off the table are you Doug? :shock:

I'm only going to EGF this weekend to witness Dave's 2mm perspex; You are going to let me touch it, right Dave?

I think I'll be showing up at sometime in the afternoon, maybe 2ish. I hope you welcome (foreign) newcomers. I'll try to drag a mate of mine with me. Is it easy to find the place?
I almost don't feel the way I do.

Foreigners are grudgingly admitted and treated with suspicion. :P

See here

Go to the corner of cotham rd and high st, walk along the south side of cotham road until you get to the bridge club. It isn't far, if you get to queen st you went too far. It's upstairs, so the bridge club is just a doorway. Also there should be a faded EGF poster on the door. See you there!

What I'd like to play:

Asia Engulfed
The Napoleonic Wars
Angola

Anyone care to bring these along and have a game?

PS: I think only Chee owns the above - are you coming Chee?

I wouldn't expect anything less, would in fact feel very awkward if nobody even looked at me funny...
