We live in an awesome world where things can be ordered from anywhere in the world. I wonder if this makes us purchase too much!

Nice detail. Except for the blurred background, I would almost believe you used an iPhone!

There was some alcohol in there. I recall a time when Scholl's sherry was a treat! I would give it a 60/100 as a whiskey and 15/100 as a Chardie = 75 /100.

Nice Civil War map. A bit disappointed that MI22 does not appear anywhere in in the photos. I thought holidays without a PRESTAGS counter are illegal now. I will try your single malt after I get over Butch's Tequilla
All those lovely openings to discuss camera lenses, PRESTAGS, classic wargames, mutant potatoes, top secret files in very public places, and all you can discuss is Peter's appearance! Shirl, beauty is more than skin deep! You gotta open a man's top draw to know how lucky his dice are!

I found this photo - no date or explanation, but I think this might be a pre-USA Peter - perhaps early 1990s - tending mutant potato plants. Perhaps this photo is classified still and I will be unable to play a turn until ASIO confiscate my old photos! Peter still... Continue reading

Our significant others would consider that as the same as playing the thing.
What do you want to play? War in Europe?
While flouncing around the planet burning Jet Fuel and being treated like royalty is all very well, every now and then we have to see AUSTRALIA - you are standing in it, mate. Batemans Bay is a perfect place for a Boys Weekend. Far enough from women we know yet... Continue reading

Too easy. I think you told me already. The answer involves eBay, cherry pickers and spray painting.

Paul insisted that I buy "To end all wars", so I have does so. I have joined a game at the club and find myself as the western entente. For first choice - how to defeat Germany in 6 weeks. Striking due east is the obvious choice. Perhaps too obvious.... Continue reading

The whole world has gone mad. Note you are included in this world as am I. In a sane world there would be no Chump in the White House, no Putin in the Kremlin, no article 50 being triggered and no inaction on Climate Change. Welcome to the human race!

I have sent this to Paul twice in email, but given it is all about to be forgotten, I thought I would pop it up here for future reference. Turn 1 You will be asked twice for a password. It can be anything. Create 6 units by clicking Assign each... Continue reading

With the end of summer, we can finally start to enjoy comfort food again: chilli in Tacos is up there with one of my favourites. Food you can play with, use your fingers and just tuck in. All you need with it is one of those real Westerns where the... Continue reading

They are in my fridge. Still a staple for Jordan and me. Pity I can't include a photo in a reply.
Sorry about that chief. Late night out and I come home to a triped and a quadriped with tears in their eyes saying you never walk uss or feed us or scratch us on the tummy anymore. So after all that I tend to lie down!
Set the camera to 400 frames a second and poke the poor arthropod with a stick.
