Thanks, mario

I find cold beer is a truly international concept. We may differ some on the size of a pint, the definition of "cold", and whether or not rice is a grain fit for the brewer's art, but cold beer seems to work for almost everyone.

Unlike the rest of you folks, I am rather poorly educated, and have no impressive credentials at all 8) But if I really wanted to know whether this worked or not, I would just try it. After all, theory is at best an approximation of reality, and what matters is not whether it works in theory, but wh...

Since FoG allows you to fight a Roman versus Samurai battle, a certain amount of fantasy is already existant. negative. anachronism, yes. fantasy, no. caesar vs. genghis khan. both historical figures with historical armies = anachronistic matchup. Gromm the goblin king vs. prince Decaprio of the la...

OK, agreed, but the shamelessly blatant greed and rampant customer wallet-raping practiced by "Golf Whiskey" do not necessarily constitute a valid reason to totally dismiss all non-historical miniatures gaming. Aside from greed and lack of ethics, the problem with "Goober Weenies" was the proprietar...

Re: Carthage versus Rome

Hi all, I've been playing around with the lists for Mid-Republic Romans and Later Carthaginians at the time of the Italian campaigns of the Second Punic Wars. I was just wondering (before I commit any cash) if these two armies would play well against each other in a game of FoG? Both (if I've count...

I cheerfully admit to an appalling ignorance of French & German wines :) Most of what I know began with working in Italian restaurants, so mostly I know Italian and Sicilian wines. I'm honestly not that fond of reds except with red meat or tomato-based dishes. As far as a "patio wine" just to sit an...

Whoa, when the forecasts here are wrong, they're really wrong. Monday when we started this thread, our forecast was for clouds and scattered showers Wednesday. Now Wednesday is here, another beautiful sunny day, blue from horizon to horizon, not a cloud in sight, and 23-24C outside at 0900 hours. If...

And so we come full circle.

It was the fantasy supplement in the back of Chainmail (miniatures rules from 40 years ago) that was credited with providing the point-of-departure for Dungeons & Dragons.

What irony, eh?

Well it's another 'warm' +1 C or so before wind chill here in the Ontario. It's supposed to drop to -14 C or so mid week. Of course we only get a few feet of snow per year so the London shock is nothing compared to here. I got an email from a Canadian fiend who is in the UK earlier today - shall we...

About 15 degrees in Badajoz and there were rumours of rain clouds being seen in the distance but it was just a sick joke. Terrible winter indeed. Julian 22C here in San Diego, but it's only 1100 now, and and we're expecting a high of 24C. Humidity at a comfortable 25%, sun is shining, beautiful blu...
