Uber Old School - an update

Remember the above? I had the following email today-

"Dear Mr. Gruber,
I will try to translate the rules in English. It will take some time, perhaps we publish the rules in the Zinnlaube.
You must be patient for a while!
Thank You for Your understanding.
Best wishes
Ignacio Czeguhn"
It is great that a member of the group will be willing to do this for me .Further details will be posted when I hear more...

    How very kind of Mr Czeguhn to offer to translate his rules into English. I am sure that I am not alone in looking forward to seeing them in print ... and possibly even using them.

    All the best,

    Bob

  2. Indeed Bob! They are not his rules as Karl posted as a comment on my earlier post-
    They are a group of toy collectors from Germany. I contacted them through their website and got a very friendly response. The game they play on the pictures is called "Jung-Deutschlands Schlachtenspiel" and was produced by the toy company Hausser in 1920.

    1. I've been here before Bob. Like tracing and retracing my steps in a vast city I often forget where I have been! It is indeed most intriguing to look at...

  5. Tradgardmastare,

    The more I see of this wargame, the more I see similarities to the original POLEMOS rules, Joseph Morschauser's grid wargame rules, and my own Portable Wargame rules.

    All the best,

    Bob
