(What to expect: Static table, with the camera occasionally panning across the table to show what I'm talking about, when I remember, and a commentary that doesn't start as soon as I thought and occasionally disappears. Apparently I can walk and chew gum but panning and talking are sometimes a struggle).
There is a lot of learning and growing for me to do, but that's good for keeping the little grey cells alive and active. Better equipment would be nice but that's one of those compromises that came with very early retirement and I still consider that a good trade off and one of the best life decisions that I've ever made. Learning how to make better use of my current equipment and available software will be a good first step anyway.
Meanwhile, during the first half of the game I've been able retest each of the various rules approaches that I've tried over the last decade, on or off grid. To my relief, the approach I had finally settled on for my grid is also the best approach for the kind of off grid ACW games I want to play.
