And now, for something completely different...
I love Looney Labs. On one hand they are unabashedly goofy--witness the line of Fluxx games and the time-travel wackiness of Chrononauts. On the other hand they are endlessly inventive; the Icehouse pieces invented by Andrew Looney have been spun out into dozens of permutations.
Aquarius is the epitome of cosmic.

No entry last week: birthdays (mine; child’s) and school deadlines intervened. On the upside, I have a week and a half off for Passover and hope to more than make up for the gap.
As I showed last time, the Italian Campaign 1943-4 is better represented in the wargaming canon than the Allied landings in the South of France, but still nowhere nearly as much as the Normandy landings. On the other hand, one of the most beloved of Avalon Hill designs from the 1969 was Anzio.
