Chi-town.  I was born in the Midwest.  I don’t miss the cold.  What PG games do you have?

I hear you about the cold. I complain every year.  Still have family here though so...

I just so happen to have a list. Also there is a way to look up what games people have listed on Pghq but I'm not sure how.

If you look in the 'Lets play' section in the Skill vs Numbers post you can see I have a pbem game going now taking up E. Ridge and Road to Berlin.

Long copy and paste...

Road to Berlin

E. Ridge
Battle of the Bulge
Heroes of the Soviet Union
East Front
Afrika Korps
Desert Rats
Cassino 44
Beyond Normandy
Airborne
1940 The Fall of France
An Army at Dawn


Army Group South Ukraine
Winter Soldiers
Red Warriors
Invasion of Germany
Golden Journal - Fall of Luxembourg
Arctic Front
Edelweiss
First Axis
Siegfried Line
Jungle Fighting
Fronte Russo
White Eagles
South Africa's War
Blue Division
Sinister Forces
Black SS
Go for Broke
Workers and Peasants

Too Bad You Do Not Have a Copy Of Spearhead Division - that could be fun!!

Hi folks, I’m brand new to PG and I own Elsenborn Ridge. I was wondering if there are any good resources for newbs to give insights into tactics, how to best use specific units etc? Thanks.

Stodge,

Read After Action Reports: http://pg-hq.com/after-action-reports.php

But start with this iconic one: http://www.avalanchepress.com/elsenborn_tactics_1.php

Edit: just note, this play and many of the PGHQ AARs were under 3rd Ed rules.

Thanks. I’m using the 3rd edition rules.

Welcome, stodge. Have you ever used VASSAL before? http://www.vassalengine.org/ There is a module for Elsenborn Ridge and we could probably find another player to do some real-time tutorial turns with you and get you up to speed faster.

I have used Vassal briefly, but I spend all day at work looking at a screen so I won’t use it. I also find it too restrictive having to scroll around the map when I can see the whole map set up on my table

Thanks.
