Well after deciding to sell my old collection of war games I discovered 2 that had been vandalized by a house guest I had (he was supposed to be a good friend of a now X friend of mine) and the damage gets worse.
One kind person was going to try to send the data and number of the combat chits used in a game called Operation Typhoon but evidently could not. I then checked my Battle de la Moskowa game and found 7 counters were removed and 6 replaced by hand made ones with extras supplied in the game for most and hand written for the rest.
Well I now went to check Wellington.s Victory and find all the rules are gone. I was hopping that someone who has the game could copy the rules (all the white printed ones).
I shutter to think what is missing in Terrible Swift Sword. These games represent a good 25-30% of what I could make by selling them and now...I don't know I really need the money so if any can help PM me.

thanks

Man, that is some bad luck-never give the slime ball another chance. You could tell him you would consider urinating on him if he was a ball of fire, but you would rather walk a mile to a restroom.

BTW, you have kindled my interest the status of my remaining board games which have not been opened (or even seen) in years. As I recall, those were complete. My one fear is that the instructions are not in the boxes. I was prone to putting those in a night stand-I'm afraid those may havenot been stored correctly.

I wonder if there is a place to get instructions for SPI (Kursk) and various A/H games.

well I thought among all the old gamers like me SOMEONE would have a copy of thr game Wellington's Victory and could coppy the directions and any black on white game aids (if there were any)....but I guess not. The guy did a lot of damage to my game collection and I never would have known if I had not decided to sell them some 30 or so years later. HECK MY MEMORY IS SO BAD if THE GUY WAS STANDING NEXT TO ME I WOULD NOT KNOW HIM TODAY. Sorry Igot a little carried away. So please if anyone can help ......well enough I have already asked. I thank all thoses who read the post.

Dude, I don't have a copy. I never liked Napolionic era games. There's a Francophile at work who has some attic games that he won't even look at because he's afraid of his wife yelling 'War Monger' at him. He might have this one, I'll ask him about it.
