WITP-AE is a wonderful game for suffers of OCD, those players that are
exceptionally anal retentive about following up details, about checking things
that were just checked last turn, about thinking out of the box but with
constraints. And it requires a lOT of patience because it's such a long
running game with over a thousand turns if you're playing one day per turn
which is what I usually played. Sometimes I just simply didn't have enough
patience to face my game right now and needed a quick fix of fun, something
that lasted about an hour or less and of course that meant the east front with
the Axis side doing their slash and dash between and among the Soviet soldiers
as they run for their lives. And the Axis forces get to the river before the
Soviets do and stop up all the crossings, trapping the Soviets on the wrong
side of the river where they are all eventually destroyed. You know, fun.
So I worked on a mod of Barbarosa '41, actually several versions, and
I have something that I go to when I need a quick fix of fun.
Brian is in a special situation, enough said, and he needs a quick fix of fun
so I've created a challenge for us in which he's going to be the Axis player
and I'm going to playest the Soviet side. It should be fun.

If we ever do become a space faring species and are able to visit other worlds, let's just make patterns in their crops and leave.
