  1. Hey, how you doing, long time no see.As I recall, after multiple pissing festivals and all manner of fun and carnage, we settled on a draft before the game ( immediately preceding) and we released the scenario for that week the night before.That's how we did it when I was stewarding TGIF the first couple of years after Nikatori left, and he ran it the same way.If we didn't draft, oftimes they were lopsided battles, and after a million complaints we had to, was the only approach everyone would accept.We added the "release the scenario the night before" thing, because any earlier than that, that

  7. By William S. Lind On War #214 April 16, 2007 A Tactics Primer By William S. Lind It occasionally happens that a reader's e-mail is translated into dots and dashes and sent to me over Mr. Morse's wonderful electric telegraph.

Convoy enters one map edge, exits the other. points gained for units surviving, kills, And trucks carrying evacuees. opfor has all the tanks, but non crewable. Map updates off. Opfor has decent arty.

  11. On War #209 March 14, 2007 Conversations By William S. Lind A curious fact about the American military and American private industry in the early 21st century is their insistence on holding formal meetings. The practice is curious because these same institutions spend a great deal of time and effort studying "good management," which should recognize what most participants in such meetings see, namely that they are a waste of time.
