AP99 - Barefoot Beating
Prior to this another pacific scenario had been played but has been lost for ever. This was posted early 2015 and was the last game I played against my Czech opponent. FargoGamer had already stopped play and Rosta was very unwilling to play anything that was not ‘simple infantry scenarios’. He was wanting to play more but would rather I played him more than he found other opponents himself to fill his slots. Apparently he had had a local opponent who dropped out and that meant he only played fortnightly against myself. It came to a state that I basically said – we can play weekly as long as you make an attempt to use or let me use tanks plus the game has to start at 8pm as my younger son needed the attention and my Rosta games were 7:30 starts which was pushing bath time for my youngest. Rosta was happy (well maybe happy isn’t the word) to learn tanks but demanded the game not only did not start at 8 but would have to start at 7 and go on for a minimum of 4 hours. I thought about it and said ‘no, that’s not acceptable as I am not prioritising you over my children and wife’ So we stopped playing. I wonder how many gaming partnerships do eventually collapse in such fashions. As its base is the fact that if you want to play ASL then (currently at least) you can play almost whenever you want (caveat as long as you don’t mind VASL or PBEM) Anyway the last game was fun!
