I was thinking back to the days of the monster boardgames and I wondered if any of us ever finished any of them? I played mine solo, and by the time I finished setting up Fire in the East or Pacific War (the campaign game) I longed for a quick Ambush scenario or maybe a few turns of Third Reich. I loved seeing the 4' X 8' maps and the stacks and stacks of counters set up, but the actual playing of the monsters was a chore at times. Of course, I'd give anything for a computer FITE, and we have WITP, but I think I'd like to have my cake (the physical pleasure of looking at the giant maps) and eat it too (a computer program to handle the calculations). The WITP planning map is as close as I'll get, I think. The first company to complete a division-level WWII game with hexes and a decent a/i will make a tidy profit from it. I really don't like area movement.
It was probably my fault for not joining a club (I lived in NYC and there must have been a grognard club or two around), but 16 hour days at work did not allow for much getting out and about. I'm just curious whether anyone finished FITE, or Terrible Swift Sword, Campaign for North Africa, etc., either solo or in team play.
