No Ray. No Lemons were involved or injured in this operation. Just Weeds.

May the spray be with You!

I'm game Jason, and if you have Fire in the East I'd love to kick the tires with you as soon as I get my copy. 

Having four kids in the house I must say that my enthusiasm unfortunately far exceeds my available time though.

Re: Proposal for board wargame ownership database/opponents wanted list (hex and counter) #poll

Jason C
 

Definitely interested, I’m always up for board wargames face to face or on Vassal.
Most of my collection is listed on Board Game Geek, about 300 games.

I also actively “mod” game systems, especially older ones that can benefit from more recent mechanics, and I am always looking for people willing to playtest such changes.

Sincerely,

Jason

Re: Drang Nach Osten/Fire in the East

Robert Goldsmith
 

Drang nach Osten and Untershieden were updated by GDW long ago, and were republished under their English names, Fire in the East and Scorched Earth. There is also a Urals module. These are part of the Europa series, and have much better mechanics than the games they are sometimes compared with: War in Europe/the East/the West. The games aren't new but I highly recommend them. Back in the 80s I spent an enjoyable 20 months playing FitE/SE/Urals with a couple of friends.

There is Vassal for FitE so even if you can’t leave it up for the full playing time, it can be played with the computer saving your game state.  FWIW.

I am thinking of buying a copy of Drang Nach Osten and Unentschieden, yes.

Trying to see if anyone can comment on the rules differences between the original games, and the rewrites that came out 10 years later Fire in the East and Scorched Earth.

Price wise the newer editions are significantly more expensive for the pair, so I'm trying to figure out if those are better games or not. Boardgamegeek has awesome reviews for both, but no comparisons that I've found.

Thanks Larry. I can fit a 9x5 table in my man cave with room to walk around and all that.

 

I'm thinking of pulling the trigger on Fire in the East/Scorched Earth just be cause they're Vassal supported and i can download the rules and OOB's online. Can't find anything like that for DNO.

 

Frank Chadwick wrote a new version that was kickstarter funded that came out last year called Thunder in the East but the smallest operational unit is a corps and I'm not sure I want to scope up that high.
