Viewer's Choice Celebration MiniCampaign

It has now been over 20 years since I launched "With MacDuff On the Web" and nearly 10 years since I launched my 2 blogs: Gathering of Hosts and Battle game of the Month.

To celebrate the years and the friends and the million hits I've decided to run a 3 game mini-campaign in late October and I'm asking YOU to help choose the period. It has to be something from my current list but please comment on any post from Sep 12 till Oct 1 or email me : . and to let me know your preference and any suggestions on the mini campaign.

The polls are now open!

  1. A Happy Canada Day to you and yours , Tony

  2. Ross,
    Happy Canada Day! My mother was born in Canada; that and the fact that I grew up in Baja Ontario (i.e. Michigan), meant we travelled up to the frozen North fairly often. I often wonder what might have happened had you folks taken us up on our several peaceful, incredibly well-intentioned invitations to join the U.S.

    As it is, I hear your Prime Minister is planning to build a wall from Lake Superior to the Pacific to keep out the Americans who would otherwise be crossing the border illegally if Trump wins this November...

    Best regards,


    1. Nonsense Chris, we're not building a wall, just jacking up real estate prices. Com'on home, bring money!

  3. Lovely photos Ross. I have always admired the graceful lines of the St. Laurent class destroyers.

    1. With the rounded hull and superstructure they looked so futuristic. Who knew it was a deadend design?
