The bad news is that this means there are lots of chores to be done. Anyone who owns a home knows how long that list can be and the more you do, the more things you think of that need to be done. The result is there’s less time to play games and so little energy left in your tired body that you can’t even work up the desire to set up a game.
I recently bought Combat Commander since I couldn’t deny the inner child in myself any longer. Actually, the game was my 25th Wedding Anniversary gift from my husband. Anyway, I’ve gotten to play through the sample game twice—once with our friend, Mike, when he dropped by the day after I got it; and once with my husband, Richard—and the first scenario once with Richard. From that little bit of experience, we all agreed we liked it. There are a lot of rules to deal with, many which are easily forgotten in the heat of battle, but at its core, it’s not that complicated. I like the hand-management even though, or maybe because, it’s very different from the command & colors system.
I’ve been anxious to play again ever since but life keeps interfering. Don’t you hate that!? Work and exhaustion have kept us from setting it up and really getting into it. I’m dying to delve into it and explore the different scenarios, and become comfortable with the game play but no…the yard needs to be raked/watered/mowed/seeded/fertilized, the bikes (motorcycles, that is) have to be maintained, the dishes/washing/dusting/vacuuming have to be done, and my husband has to go to work and earn money. What a nuisance!
All of that just to explain why I don’t have something interesting for you to read today. Maybe next time. Until then, I hope you get more game time in that I do!
