Good morning!

this is my new account; my old one from summer 2018 has been deleted after inactivity.

I am 32 years old and write to you from Germany. In the past I was a dedicated player of WW2 shooters, especially good old Day of Defeat and Battlefield 1942. In 2014 I discovered board wargaming: Avalon Hill's PANZER LEADER
suddenly appeared on my table. I'm also into Advanced Squad Leader and the older Squad Leader from 1977. I think that the original SL is more straightforward - but that is another topic.

My main interest seems to be Combat Mission. I know the series for a long time but have never played CM seriously. Now I own CMFI with all modules and have started my first PBEM after the demo times. I also have - via GoG - the older
titles of the series.


Best regards and have phun

M.

If ever a game deserved to be put into computer format, it was ASL. Apparently Combat Mission was inspired in part by SL.

"Wie ghets!" Sounds like you have the right background. Many of us started out playing Avalon Hill games. I skipped SL, but recently got a copy of ASLSK #3. Just wanted to read the rules, and push a few unit counters around the map in some solo play. Been playing CM now for almost 20 years.
When you are ready, try joining one of the many tournaments or campaigns here at FGM, or just reach out looking for a friendly match. Good "phun" either way.

Greetings, @platanenmuster You should soon receive @Hedgehog's Welcome Wagon hand-outs! They make good reading.

If not doing so already for your H2H play, consider using CMHelper to manage your matches.
Then, post your first request for a match either here or at the forum for the game(s) you own.

Welcome back to The Few Good Men. Good luck and good gaming! Have fun.
