Always good to see more TOAWers.Cheers to all. My name is Tim. I am 40, married with a 4 year old daughter. I am a TOAW III addict with particular interest in the EA scenario, to the extent I am paroled at home long enough to get in playing time. I started wargaming about 20 years ago with board games (Axis and Allies, Squad Leader and Gulf/Agean Strike game series).
I am looking forward to finding opponents for my favorite scenario - TOAW III - Europe Aflame. I have one game moving slowly along, and am looking for another PBEM opponent.
Thanks for putting together this forum.
Are you currently playing any EA, Ed?greetings, my name is ed. i teach us history and coach football (american). i've been playing wargames since the old ah games. i think afrika korps was my 1st.

Welcome to TOAW... I'm sure that with your boardgame pedigree you may well become a tough opponent once you mastered the mechanics of TOAWHello all,
I'm an old school gamer. Weaned on Avalon Hill board games at an early age.
Welcome. Like you I am an old boardgamer. TOAW3 is as close as it gets to boardgame feel. Yup me and my younger brother spent alot of nites listening to Dad demanding we shut up and go to bed. Great group of dedicated gamers here. Have fun!Hello all,
I'm an old school gamer. Weaned on Avalon Hill board games at an early age. Played many a game in to the late night versus my younger brother. Woke up the old man many an evening with our argueing ! lol
I'm 48 now and my bro 6 years younger, we have families and life's turmoils have limited our gaming and with the onset of PC's, gaming took an un-expected twist. MMORPG's became the games to play and for the most part, board games took a back seat.
Various wargames have came and went in the PC format We tried some of them and also a few MMORPG's. Nothing ever really compared. Until now.
My brother introduced me to TAOW III and I'm really enjoying it. A lot of similarity between the old school games and TAOW, gives me a comfort factor as I address the learning curve.
This is a top notch game with a good community support of mature gamers with a lot of different options. The PBEM is one of them. The ladder tournies seem interesting also.
I live in Arkansas, where men are men and chickens are scared ! lol
So needless to say the odds of finding a live stategy boardgamer opponent is like winning the lottery, let alone an intellectual one. So this game is a godsend. So please bear with my noobness as I become accumulated and I look forward to becoming more involved here, thx.
