Maus

When I was a child, I wargamed as a child. But now that I am a man, I put away childish things.

Except for the Maus, because FUCK YEAH!

I bought this mainly out of nostalgia, because the Maus was the first tank I ever tried to scratch-build when I was wargaming with my friend Wayne in his Dad's garage. We played entirely infantry-free games consisting of nothing but the biggest, meanest tanks we could find, and using rules that had been type-written and then (badly) reproduced in a little booklet — I don't even remember the name of the game, but it was pretty clunky.


I doubt that I'll ever have a tabletop use for a Maus, but it will be nice to have one around. And besides, it only cost about ten bucks, so why not?
