Just saying "Hello"

Fri May 26, 2017 7:37 pm

Hi. I've only recently joined this forum, so I thought I'd introduce myself.

My name is Alan Stewart and I'm from Scotland (no, I don't vote SNP.....) My first ever computer game was "The Hobbit" for the Spectrum, and I thought that was great: Me: [Tell Thorin to f**k off] Computer: [I don't recognise the word 'f**k'....]. Ah, those were the days.........................

Then along came Ageod. I've built up a reasonable collection of Ageod games, including Espana 1936, Thirty Years' War and many more, and I've been beaten by many of the great generals in history. Well, actually I think they've ALL beaten me... I haven't dared try multiplayer so far, but I'm working up to it so watch this space.

I hadn't realised just how much impact the English Civil War had on Scotland, so it's been interesting finding out. and visiting some of the local battle sites. Incidentally, you could say I have a direct connection, as one of my distant ancestors was a corporal in Col. Fairfax's regiment.

Looking forward to taking part in the forum and possibly a few gentle intro games in multiplayer.

Alan S.

Welcome to the forum. Usually a lot of interesting discussion. I to find family connections a plus to just having fun exploring the historical contest.
You will love pbem play once you decide to join in such play.

Hi, have fun - its a helpful and informative forum so don't be afraid to ask questions. There are plenty of nuances in the AGE system that are not immediately obvious and getting feedback on your understanding can be incredibly helpful.

I'd echo Durk's comments, PBEM really is good fun
