Having Fun! / Re: The Eastern Front 1914-1917 wargame
« on: December 12, 2018, 02:37:55 PM »

I do play boardgames :)
This is a nice one from GMT, the entire eastern front: "Illusions of Glory".
This one (also from GMT): "Reds!" is the Russian civil war 1918 - 1921.
The murder of Nicholas II and family is in the game, and might NOT happend actually.
The outcome of this does ofc have an influence on the game...
"Europe in Turmoil" is a new game (from Compass Games)  that is more a political game,
rather than a war game. The theme is the political struggle in Euriope in the years
before the war (Monarchsts, Liberals, Socialists etc. struggling for control).

Thank you very much Joanna :)

The video might be a bit long, but I wanted to do it mainly for people who have never been there, and for
people who might never get the opportunity to get there. Hence it also shows some of the surroundings,
and also, I have tried to show how the different places are situated geographically. ie: how close they are
to each other, and that TS is very small.
   The two churches are both wonderful, though rather different to each other in most ways.
I did ofc light a candle also in the Feodorovsky Sobor :)
   Have you been there many times? Maybe you live in Russia?
I will go back for sure, when the AP and the Feodorovsky Gorodok is finished and open again.

Kind regards, P.v.H

Please mind my english, it is not my native.

Thank you very much!
Darn I never thought about grabbing a few acorns :( That would have been a wonderful idea.
I will go there again for sure though. I absolutely must see both the AP and the Feodorovsky Gorodok
when they are finished renovating.
   I must say I felt both sad and happy during my short stay... Very moving to be there.
Next time I will stay only in TS. There is very much to see. I might go in the winter and build a snow tower in the park ;)

Kind regards PvH

This is the first time I post here, even though I have been a member for a while.
I just want to share a video I have made of my travel to Tsarskoie Selo in late August.
It is rather long, but I would say it shows rather much from the AP and its surroundings.
This is the first time ever I do a video, but I think it turned out rather nice.
If you like it, please feel free to repost the link for it on other places were its contents might be of interest.
Feel free to ask/comment.

Kind regards, P.v. Holdinghausen
