The General Staff Archives

Europa Games and Military History

The tooth of time…

…gnaweth at my posessions, just as it eats everything else. We had some water damage in the cellar, a broken pipe leaking directly into the box with my Europa-games carefully propped up on plastic boxes to protect it from water on the floor. When I came into the basement and noticed, the whole box was mouldy and most of my Europa-games are now a soggy slush of paper. And so it goes.

The insurance will cover the damage, thereby relieveing me from my new years resolution on selling them all on Ebay.

So, a little bit of Second Front may be salvageable, and so might be some maps and rules here and there, but most of my Europa is gone – making me realize again I didnt play those games actively in over a decade now.  And since there are a lot and more personal pages now hosting game reports – wordpress enabling mortals to throw up a reasonably well-looking page in some hours – I think the Generalstab slowly ceases to be relevant and useful. I wont take the site down just yet, but dont expect a lot of updates coming. I might publish some more of Eric Pierce OBs – if I get his permission – and clean up the archive (in which some game reports are still a mess), but I dont have any bigger plans anymore. Which is not a bad thing itself, I will concentrate (yet again) on the military database. Maybe one day I can show you :)
