RE: Who's playing what?
Not sure how many here play board wargames, but current titles I play, and very much recommend, are:
-MMP: A Victory Lost
-GMT: Roads to Leningrad/Moscow
-GMT: France 40
-GMT: Ukraine 43
All have VASSAL modules for the computer and are great operational depictions of specific campaigns. Scales range from company/battalion counters in Roads to Leningrad/Moscow to division counters in the others.
Radiate confidence and enjoy taking risks.
