...did you 'happen' to BE ''still in France'' after this? I'm 'wondering' as I was in 'Germany' after 'Christmas' of 1978 up until December of 1980 myself.

Larry, I am actually in awe! How long did it take you to make this prototype? Just the physical part, not including working out the rules.

Just think that those pictures are the very reason why we are here.. The veritable "holy grail" of the reason behind so many hours and years of playing , designing, and just thinking about this game all now displayed like something like the constitution of the united states. I wish these pictures could have made available earlier. But at long last i can see some real hard work,toil, tears, blood and mind all commited to creating a beautiful mental ediface. I am beholden indeed...

Now what we need are those pictures of Larrys abortive WW1 axis and allies game draft.. BTW all these pictures (well better ones to be sure) should make the axis and allies scrapbook hopefully Larry will write.
