Well, it took me more time to play the computer game than it did for the real war to play out, but I have finally managed to finish/win a game of Gary Grigsby's monster game War in the Pacific:
I'm not sure that I'll ever play it again. Perhaps when I retire! But I prefer more focused games now, which put the player at an actual level of command. The detail is vast, absolutely vast. A fair bit can be automated, but I don't find the automation that intuitive or effective in many instances, which therefore means lots of things have to be micro-managed.
Heretical Gaming is my blog about my gaming life; currently concentrating on a re-fight of the entire English Civil War, but with numerous discursions into battles from many different periods. The focus is on battle reports using a wide variety of rules, with the occasional rules review, book review and odd musing about the gaming and history. Most of the battles use 6mm-sized figures and vehicles, but occasionally 15mm and 28mm figures appear too.
