Ah, see, mine was *First Edition* for both ...
... like I said, dates me
You, on the other hand, have Fire in the East, the 1984 reprint
I call trumps
Got mine direct from GDW by mail, way way back, around the time I had a direct from SPI in USA subscription to Strategy and Tactics, and only a year after I bought Panzerblitz ... this was before there was really anywhere much to buy boardgames here in Sydney, let alone in Australia ... had to jump through hoops to get US$ Bank Drafts in those days, you had to justify why you wanted them ... no Credit Cards or PayPal
Read all about S&T on the back of Analog Science Fiction Mag, as I was a big SF Fan (and still am) ... so, yes, 1st Edition!
LOL boys will be boys with their pissing matches of whos the better wargamer. :)
Always someone who has liked wargames longer. I remember when i was a kid my dad got me a battle of gettysburg board game that we played together. That was really a lot of fun and my first taste for loving wargames. Well and loving MD (my home) based Avalon Hill. ;)
