Hello from Germany!

Post by chris6 » Sat Jul 18, 2020 5:07 pm

May I use this place to introduce myself?

I live in Germany aprox 30 KM North of Frankfurt am Main. I started Wargaming with Games Workshop Fantasy but quickly discovered I prefer Historical Games.
As usual I first tried out DBA, as far as I remember Version 1.1, I had a translation to german language but found it still hard to play.

Over the years I tried a lot of different games systems. All of them haf there pros and cons. Now I hope this will be my fiinal stopp on the rules highway.....

And, well I look for other players....

Welcome, Chris6. Has Covid19 closed down all gaming conventions in Germany, the way it has in the US?

Yep! But actually we do not have that much conventions anyway, most are more Fantasy and Scifi related and more skirmishing games than "real Wargaming". :D

This is the worst thing about Triumph!....up to now there aren`t many players over here. At least i got lucky that my best gamerfriend likes the rules too, so that we will have regular games. There are some gamers in Berlin and others in Switzerland. Berlin is a 5,5 hours car ride and switzerland, well do not dare to ask.....

We had a big community of regular tournament gamers for another game called Fields of Glory back then. But I did not liked those rules at all and the peoples somewhat disappeared when the main forum of the community closed thx to some stupid onlinedata laws in germany.

Hi Chris
glad to hear you like Triumph. I am one of the Swiss players you mentioned and we usually have one small tournament a year. The last one was in November in my home town, see http://minimaerk.blogspot.com/2019/12/t ... nt-in.html You would be highly welcome to participate in future events if covid lets them happen - keeping fingers crossed!

Google maps says that Frankfurt/Main is a good 4 hours car drive from my town. You would probably need to spend one or two nights over here. I think we would find an accomodation for you.

cheers and tschüs
Maerk

Hi Maerk!

Thx for the invitation! I would really like to join in your yearly tournament! Well, if Covid....

But on the other hand we allready have plans for our own small tournament over here. And, as you might already guess, your are warmly welcome!

I already met your fellow Vodnik in the past were he visited me and we played ADG that time and DBx /YW. As far as I remember Triumph1 wasn`t born that days.

So, we all really looking forward to get healthy out of this terrible times and see together for rolling the dice!

cheers
Christoph
