Friday evenning T.Vh. Was very good indeed. I have noticed something funny: Whenever I am watching T.V. My mind wanders tonthe questiom:"Which game in my collection covers this situation. Example : on BBC 2 there was anabsolutely brilliantvdocumentary on aerial photography on thevWestern Front in W W 1.this is the sort of stuff that is sadly lacking on Dutch television nowadays. In the documentarythere was a sequenceof the repporter taking a flight in a Brisol Fifgter ("Brisfit"to the knowledgable few). In my minf it flashed:Aces High, the game of plane-to-plane combat in WW 1 by Worldwide Wargamers. A great game that really gave you an insight into thenproblems of aerial reconnaissance in1914-1918.then I changed channels toRTLl 5 , Robin Hood, prince of thieves. ,My mind flashed: Cry Havoc, a game of man to man combat in theMiddle Ages. Furthermore, Avalonhill had an interesting mini-game on Robin Hood.
Ccoming Sunday, there is an exammple how not to do historical films.:Troy.the only interesting game I've ever played was a Vae Victis mini-game thtat I played with Rense and won. With regard to the film, the pop group System of a dowbn summed it up perfectly;""You should never have trusted Hollywood"
Thousend times thanks!
To all the followers of the blog, to anyone who has been supportive of Frank or us in the last months and especially after his untimely death we want to say thanks from the bottom of our hearts. In the week after his passing we received so much warmth, stories, care and love, hardly describable. To us it was a very precious and valuable week and it was so good to have Frank at home where so many of his friends could visit him. And all the help, stories and info shared in that week led to a beautiful goodbye ceremony on a beautiful sunny autumn day. For those of you who could not attend, or those of you who wish to reread the funeral speeches, we publice them here (in dutch and english) with some pictures in grateful memory of, and tributed to Frank.We will miss him dearly, thanks for being with him and with us, one way or another,
On behalf of my family and his closest friends, Esther
