More delays. I’m currently without functioning computer. It will be probably another few days before I can get back into a regular writing routine.
It’s been not my best week so far. Highlight was probably my computer that decided to pick the busiest week of all to perish. But then I get home and find an envelope from Decision […]
It’s a crazy week. I’m currently stuck in a workshop with less time at hand than initially planned. The next posts will be coming but probably delayed by 1-2 days.
We are still dissecting and digesting the rules for the Grand Operational Simulation Series. But the hard part is almost done.
So you moved your guys in position, made sure they have fuel and ammo, you even sent a few artillery volleys over into the target hex, now what? It’s time to dig into the Ground Assault (GA) rules.

And in many cases, this is the only mouthpiece for people to call attention to them.
So inspired by that, today I don’t want to talk about a particular game. As a matter of fact, today’s post is not even purely wargame focused. But I thought, heck, why not?!
Quick update: I just changed domains for this site. What used to be gringogamer.wordpress.com is now gringogamer.space. I do hope that the change is absolutely transparent to everyone. But please let me know if you […]
