Procrastination is a good thing… sometimes

I had been bemoaning selling my old copy of Wooden Ships and Iron Men by Avalon Hill (mine was a copy from the late 70s???) as I had wanted to bring naval battles between small squadrons into my campaign. As I was looking through a pile of items I had planned on putting up for sale on Bartertown, lo and behold I saw the old, trusty boxed set awaiting rescue! Huzzah!

I have been wargaming as long as I can remember. I met my wife when I was 14 and had been gaming long before that so that should give you an indication as to how long it has been. One of the first games I owned was Anzio by Avalon Hill. I drove over to the hobby shop in the snow to pick it up as I finally had the money to get something! I can remember playing with Airfix figures and Roco tanks back in the 6th grade and before.
