Christmas is not quite over yet. . .
Guess what arrived in the mail a little while ago? Yes, C.S. Grant's recent new book -- The War Game Companion! It seems the Grand Duchess is full of surprises and ordered the book a month or so ago, but it was out of stock at that time. Well, I don't know what to say except that it is packed with all kinds of lovely photographs and fascinating information on Charles S. Grant's games, gaming history, gaming rationale, and much else. As I said to my wife after I kissed her and thanked her profusely, "Well, I'll see you next week. I'm going to lie down and have a closer look at this." So, do I try to paint this evening, get the Action at Pickelhaubewicz with Jonathan Broadus rolling again, or retire to bed early with a cup of coffee and this book? Hmmm. . . Decisions, decisions!
